Aroma: nice, syrup, maple, mold, rose, citrus.

Visuals: interesting packaging, iced tea, reddish brown, slightly hazy, off white long lasting head, intricate lace.

Taste: well balanced, high malt, medium hops, medium high strength.

Palate: high quality, spicy, scratchy, dry, longer drying finish.

Overall: A very well done beer, and one of the few doppelbocks I’ve truly enjoyed. If they were all like this, I might like the style more. I’d have this again, though it’s not what I’d call a favorite. High value for a well crafted brew.
