Bottle from Plonk. Murky brown, massive clumps of sediment, smoky, chocolatey, sweetish. Just average, may have been an old bottle or something.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 27, 2013
courtesy of Thomas and Philipp - hazy brown beer under a persistent beige foam; toasted biscuity aroma, caramel and chestnuts; assertive and very tasty; some earthy bitterness, long biscuity and chestnutty finish with long caramelish notes and some residual sugars - good beer

Dredd (684) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2012
Pour is dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a hint of cola. Flavour is all chocolate with hints of vanilla and I swear a hint of smokiness. I would have expected a bit more hoppiness to be considered a bock. Nice nonetheless

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2010
Dark chocolate brown body with lasting light tan head. Caramel and roasted notes in the taste also hints of smoke, went down a treat after letting it warming up a tad and probably the best beer I have had from this brewery.

davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Tap. Very nice. Aromas of caramel, and cola. Taste is sweet, with lingering bitterness. Palate is oily, with a medium body. Dark brown, with a frothy white head.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours deep amber with absolutely no head what so ever. Appears basically flat. Aromas of smoked malt, toffee and dark fruit. Flavours are dominated by the smokiness with a little malt sweetness. Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side. OK beer but not something to rave about.

RyansRatings (43) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2010
Lifeless pour. Very deep amber. Little to no head or carbonation. Curious indeed. Very deep amber colour. An intriguing nose; fresh red fruits, malt, a touch of smokiness. Lighter on the palate than the colour indicates. Deep dark savoury flavours above a smoky undertone. Strange beer. Lacks definition. I like it, though I think I’d represent a minority.

hawthorne00 (2252) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2010
500ml bottle, 10C. Dark brown with a beige head that retreats to about a cm leaving sticky lace. Smells of toasted hazelnuts, dried fruit, grass, a little chocolate. Sweet and slightly syrupy with rich caramel, raisins, candied dates and a touch of roasted as well as hop bitterness. Balanced chocolate finish. In the end I wasn’t disappointed that it’s rather lighter than the doppelbock the name suggests.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2010
Pours very dark copper with ruby hints and a creamy off-white head quickly fading leaving nice lacing. Nose is rich and dark, with loads of sweet bready malt and plenty of melanoidin characters. Restrained spicy hops also show along iwth soft molasses and nutty hints. Flavours are more roasty but still quite sweet. Charred oak mixes with sweet bready malt and finishes with a big roasty bitterness that suggests a higher alcohol content than is actually present. Soft carbonation suits the style. Body is quite rich.
