Postmortem Brew Review
Solid brown cola color with slight ruby edges.
Rich sweet malty aromas with hint of toffee
Rich creamy head about two and a half fingers high.

Coated lacing leaves spots down the glass.
The bubbles in the head are small and tight.
Carbonation is abundant. 
Creamy and sweet malt taste that leaves a pleasant thickness on the tongue. 
Medium bodied mouth feel. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Just 8km off the Autobahn, at München-Salzburg exit “Hofoldinger Forst”, is the town of Aying.  It's just half an hour from the Bavarian capital of München.  I mention this because there is no speed limit on the Autobahn, so you can go as fast as hell to get there.  Pardon my language.

And you might want to get there in a hurry to sample this beer. But hold on a minute.  It's exported to the US-of-A so, no hurries and no worries.  Slow down, put the Porsche back in the garage and sally on down to your local spot to get some of the greatest Doppelbock on earth.

But if you do find yourself in Germany and only have enough Euro's for a great beer and not a Porsche, take the train.  The brewery happens to be just 300 meters from the train station.  What luck!  Staying the night?  How about the “Brauereigasthof Hotel Aying” for accommodations?  It too is a stone's throw away. The Brauerei will even pick up hotel guests if you call in advance. 

So about this brew?  It is sweet, malty and delicious.  It even comes with a Celebrator goat charm around each bottle neck.  It's kinda like the Cracker-Jack® of beer!
