Düll Krautheimer Dunkler Doppelbock

Finish: lingering, bittersweet
Served: from a bottle bought at Sagasser in Lower Franconia
Impression: Nice looking Doppelbock with an ample head and signature white pepper in the nose. This has more going on than mere spice with dried fruit and licorice intermingling. This is the first beer I’ve found the signature white pepper element odd. It just doesn’t seem to fit in. The lingering finish is bittersweet but not overly cloying even at 7.8%.
