I haven't had this in a while and I don't see this beer often in my neck of the woods. Visiting Florida and saw this at a Total Wine, so decided to get this over some uncreative and disappointing local brewery. I always think of Samichlaus when I think of this brewery. But this beer is much smoother. A malty and raisin-y beer but a very doable level of alcohol. It is not as sweet as many doppelbocks. So, relatively well attenuated. A light buckwheat aspect. I think I'd rather drink this than Celebrator (or other similar doppelbocks) nowadays (which is new for me). Dark ruby brown color.

Price: $3.99 Served In: Wine Glass

11.2oz bottle: Pours an almost clear chestnut with a slight mahgoney tone. Slim capping of lightly tanned foam that slides to an always present skim and firmly set collar. Very minimal lacing with only a few droopy strings eventually slipping back into the top.

Muddled molasses and peat aroma; soft and warm with a bit of chocolate and a light tint of brown sugar and cherry.

Taste is mellowing and soft with a nice rounded tone of dark, supple maltyness. Flavors are a nice meld of brown sugar, molasses, with a light cocoa sweetness carrying through to the finish as it sneaks in a bit of the peat found in the aroma along with a very nice deep dark cherry-like warmth to back it up.

Big body with soft delicate warmth wrapped in malty tones and flavor. Smooth, soft, and warm with a dulled dryness flirting at the finish with some woody earth notes.

A nice Doppel, quite warming and soft.

Served In: Weizen Glass
