Bottle purchased at the brewery over Christmas and shared at a recent tasting. Served in a snifter.
Pours a dark chestnut brown with a pretty good tan head. After the initial pour, the head dies down somewhat quickly but leaves some nice lacing and eventually settles into a moderately-thick collar. The nose is really quite sweet straight from the start with some really nice notes of chocolate, dark fruits, and toffee. The taste follows along this path, though isn’t quite as sweet or complex as the nose. Very smooth. Good light chocolate notes and a bit of caramelized dates. Medium body with good carbonation. A nice example of the style.

Bottle… Dark brown lager with a small, creamy, khaki head. Great retention. The bouquet is an outright mocha-bomb – I love it. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and relaxed carbonation. Crusted port and dark, unsweetened chocolate step forth in the flavor with gooey caramel in close pursuit. Sweet caramel and dark chocolate finish… mild bitterness hangs on a good while. Bottle courtesy of 50belair. Thanks, Matt! 50belair (3670) - Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle thanks to thetomg. Clear dark brown pour with a faint white head. Dark fruit and chocolate nose. The taste is chocolate malt, plums, figs, raisins. Very nice doppelbock... Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2011
This poured a medium to darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was darker malts, light dark fruits,a nd some smoke. Flavor was very smooth sweet chocolate, some roasted malts, and a good amount of smoke as well. Like most three floyds beers, a bit off style, but still a good beer overall.

Poured into a pilsner glass (though after the fact a snifter might have been a better option).
3.5 A: Pours black. About three fingers of creamy light brown head with below average retention and just a small ring of lacing.
3.5 S: Good amount of roastiness in this with semi-sweet chocolate making a big appearance as well. Some faint caramel, but overall fairly dry. Malts can be described as grainy, if anything. Grassy hoppiness Not bad, but needs some strength.
4.0 T: Unlike the nose, the taste is big and bold. Roasted malts, milk chocolate, medium roast coffee each exhibit plenty of force. Secondarily, there is a touch of smoke, some lactose-like sourishness, caramel, and dark fruits. Again, grassy hops. Pretty good, borderline 4.5.
4.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Creamy, but could be more so and super smooth.
4.0 D: This is a pretty good beer and is basically an imperial stout brewed with lager yeast. Good taste, no off-flavors, and highly drinkable.

Served from bottle. Deep black with brown/red hues. Sufficiently malty aroma with some dark fruit, wood. Initial coffee, roasted malt flavor, followed by dark fruits, plum, slight acidity. Nice even carbonation. A very good dark doppelbock that bucks the style parameters. Match of a baltic and a doppelbock. Very nice.
