The brewery provided the following description of the 9% abv brew:
The colour is a very dark brown with a reddish tint, the foam is beige, thick and long lasting. The phenolic taste from the high alcohol content is barely noticeable, an intense maltiness, which is accompanied by a pleasant dark chocolate taste, ties it all together. Hop bitterness is noticeable but not overpowering, as there is already enough bitterness from the dark malts. A hint of citrusy hop aroma rounds the taste up. This beer harmonizes very well with hearty food like stews and game, but is also a good companion to sweet desserts like chocolate mousse or Creme Bavaroise.
Pump House Doppelbock will be debuted today at the Brewpub, with a cask-conditioned firkin to be tapped at 5 PM. A bottled version is expected to be released at ANBL locations before Christmas.
