Bockbieranstich 2009! Freshly tapped in a narrow half-liter mug.
Color is a deep but translucent woody brown. A khaki finger and a half head, a little more bubbly than creamy, disappeared after a few quick swirls; some fine lacing hung in there until about 3/4 of the way through. Definitely one of the prettier doppelbocks I've found.
Couldn't coax much aroma out of the narrow-mouthed mug, but what I managed to pick up on was some pleasant well-malted breadiness, along with a hint of that odd grape-soda deal from Fuller's London Porter playing sidekick.
Primarily smacks of sweet malts, but there are some nice hops featured when you give it some time on the back of your tongue. While, thankfully, it avoids the medicinal sweetness of some doppel-b's I've come across, it seemed to get sweeter as it warmed, but never to a point that was detrimental to its character. Booziness was very light if present at all; great considering this is knocking at 8%. Finish is lingering and all malt, though not that sweet.
Not the thickest bock I've found, but certainly has substance. Carbonation is mild, but the bubbles and the hops give you a nice little prick if you let it settle on the back of your tongue. Swish it a little and it gets soft & creamy.
If I wasn't drinking on an empty stomach, I would have happily downed 2 or 3 more; dangerous given its gravity, but this is a hard beer to tire of.

Sampled on-tap at the pub during their Bockbieranstich November 25, 2005.
This doppelbock poured a cloudy, coffee-brown color with tan foam that settled. The smell was malty and slightly sweet with a note of Munich malt in the nose. The taste was lightly malty, a bit less malty than I recall from the previous year. There was a bit of vinous character from the Munich malt, and there was a very moderate hoppiness coming through the brown malts. The mouthfeel was smooth with medium-full body and good carbonation. The malty flavors lingered briefly. This was an enjoyable beer, but it was better last year (as was the Bockbieranstich party).
