This is a medium-bodied Doppelbock. It had a nice auburn color and developed a nice head that was near picture-perfect when poured into a Festbier glass. It had a nice maltiness with a slight hoppiness, and it had a definite caramel and dark fruit presence. But, there were a few things it did lack, most notably that nice warming feeling that Doppelbocks should give you. Doppelbocks should warm you on a chilly day, and this didn't do it as much, although it was still tasty.
