Medium brilliant reddish mahogany color. Lively, attractive aromas and flavors of caramelized nuts and fruits, apple pastry, and spiced chocolate with an crisp, fizzy, off-dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long citrus creme brulee, peppercorn muffin, and dried banana finish. A rich and delicious doppelbock that is dangerously drinkable.

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.
