An interesting chocolate-accented doppelbock, a well-done domestic example of the style, candy-apple maltiness with alcohol tang. Plum, dark chocolate, brown sugar, bourbon oaky flavors. Intriguing, distinctive, and enjoyable overall. Could contend with it's German precedents. Pours dark ruby almost black, off-white head, sugary malty aroma. Will be enjoying more of this brew in the future. Texture is just a bit too light, but all the more drinkable. A good introduction to Thomas Creek brewing.

Undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Pours a dark reddish-brown; clear but nearly opague. Has a short-lived and rather small tan head but leaves some lacing. Aroma: sweet and attractive smell of roasted malts; faintly spicy Taste: slightly spicy and hoppy flavor, but dominated by sweet, medium and darker roasted malts. Slightly nutty. Good hop/malt balance. M: good medium carbonation level; slightly dry in the finish. O: pretty good example of an American dopplebock..

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Upon a second try (sober try) not as good. Original rating was a 4.2 Good solid, dark, malty beer. Strong chocolate flavor, not overpowering. Pours a very dark color with a hint of crimson. This beer doesnt do anything extraordinary, but that is what makes it such a great beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours an extremely deep crimson with a tan head. Nice fruity aroma, cherry and plum, a bit of breadiness. Toasty malt flavor, smoky and light molasses, hint of dark fruit. Frankly I think this is a pretty nice one.

A: Malty. creamy. Some sweet roasted notes. A: Looks ok. Color is a thin brown. Head retention is alright, looks creamy. T: Like every Thomas Creek beer: very malty. Subtle hints of roastiness. A nice sweetness. Decently balanced but the malt really takes over. I guess for a lager its pretty balanced. Drinks more like a bock than a dopplebock. P: Lighter on the palate. Smooth and creamy but malt and carbonation cuts through a little bit too much. Overall, this tasted like a thomas creek beer: super malty. There are hints of roastiness but it doesnt bring anything special. A good beer, but nothing great.
