The kind of lager that can get you in trouble. Brewed with Pilsner, Munich and other toasty malts enhanced by Hallertau and Northern Brewer hops.

On tap at brewpub. Pours brown with almost no head. Primary flavors are a delicious blend of raisin, plum, chocolate and licorice. Finish is held nicely. Good tasty brew, perfect for ribs and dark meats.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - FEB 19, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Clear dark brown with a small tan head. Nutty nose, coffee and chocolate. Sweet nuts and mild chocolate flavors, light fruitiness. Nice, but a bit sweet for me.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2007
Dark brown beer with a creamy dark brown head. Very chocolatey aroma, milk chocolate and malted milk balls. Herbal noble hop aroma lurking behind the sweet chocolatey malts. Well-lagered and quite clean tasting. Lots of dark toasted malt. A well-constructed doppelbock.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Pours a deep ruby brown with a thin tan head. Smells of nuts, coffee, chocolate and some dark fruit. Tastes of dark chocolate and nutty with a sweet malty finish. A bit too sweet for a doppelbock.
