Doppel-Hirsch

Slightly disappointing lack of “pop” to the swing top bottle, but pours to give a beautiful red brown body and a small tan head. Very little lacing.
Big dark malts and some caramel make up the aroma.
Definitely a more organic, earthy feel to this Doppelbock, with much less of the candied, sugared feel that often accompanies these beers.
Slightly metallic in the mouth with a pronounced bitterness in the finish. I wouldn’t go as far to describe this as thin in the mouth, but it is fairly light drinking.
A bit unusual, and worth a try, but seems a little out of character for the style?
