As is usual with the decent Doppelbocks, this is a complex beer with a lot of richness, fruit, sweetness, smokiness and caramel tastes and aromas. So often I find these beers rich and deep in layered tastes, in fact, often they can really be a little too complicated for my palate that often prefers a simplier beer.
A really dark pour with a nice head and some lacing. Initial tastes are chock full of fruitcake raisins and mixed peel, that are then tempered by the alcohol, that for me, has a warming quality like a good rum.
I like to savor this style and sip one or two in an evening rather than drink larger quantities, I think one appreciates the depth of these beers in smaller amounts.
