Medium brilliant deep amber color. Rich, complex, fruity boozy aromas and flavors of orange-peach marmalade, frosted banana cake, and candied yams with a chewy, crisp, finely carbonated, fruity sweet medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long apple brandy, caramelized tropical fruits, toffee, and peppered greens finish. A fabulously rich and decadent doppelbock with fine balance.

Doppelbocks vary from amber to dark brown in color and range in alcohol from 7.5-9.5%. This is a sub-category of the bock style. These beers are extra strong, rich and weighty lagers characterized by an intense malty sweetness, with a note of hop bitterness to balance the flavor. Doppelbocks were first brewed by the Paulaner monks in Munich. At the time, it was intended to be consumed as "liquid bread" during Lent. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock, Paulaner Salvator Doppel Bock and Capital Autumnal Fire.
