Uncomplicated aromas of caramel malts, toffee, brown sugar, raisins and fig preserves on toast emerge from this clear, ruddy brown/orange lager that produces an impressive layer of thick foam. Rich malts barrage the tongue with waves of treacle, sweet crystal malt and earthy, ripe fruit. Subtle teases of toasty Munich malt melanoidins, rum, dark candy sugar and smooth alcohol also emerge as the beer warms. In regard to mouthfeel, there’s substantial viscosity in this full-bodied, strong lager that finishes with a huge emphasis on dark, caramelized sugar. Although not outstandingly multifaceted, this powerful doppelbock offers impressions of a sweet, rich, slightly earthy, dessert-like lager that packs a generous malt and alcohol punch.
