Rich maroon color. Interesting aromas and flavors of chocolate and coffee with chili peppers, baked ham and beans, soy nuts, and smoked cheese with a slightly chewy, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, refreshing, medium-long melted chocolate toffee, mocha gelato, dried fruits, and peppered kale finish. A deliciously rich, complex, and chewy Doppelbock with great chocolate notes.

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.
