Light golden pour with nice initial head that fades quickly. Floral hoppy nose with some sweet notes. Smooth, buttery mouthfeel with an enjoyable sweet and hoppy finish. Alcohol level is noticeable.

Poured from bomber a light blond with large creamy white head. Nose is dough, sweet malt, and a small touch of hay. Flavor is initially malt and honey sweet which blends into notes of toasted cereal, doughy yeast, and some light grassy hay hops. Palate begins sweet, sticky and a little creamy and ends with some alcohol heat. I was not sure what to expect when buying this one, but it turned out nicely. I’d buy it again.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2009
Pours a very light golden amber with a big fluffy white head that shows decent retention and lacing. It’s definitely on the lighter side of things for a doppelbock. The aroma is dominated by light roasted grains with hints of malty sweetness. There are hints of nuts as well. The taste is similar with a pale toasted malt backbone that supports just a hints of fruity sweetness and a dry, slightly bitter finish. It might be just a tad heavier than the aroma with a bit of yeasty spiciness as well. The mouthfeel is certainly a bit light for the style. It’s smooth with lots of carbonation. I definitely enjoyed this beer, though it’s a little short of doppelbock characteristics.

Bottle. Full golden pour. Malty aroma wtih some stone fruit and apple notes and light hops. Flavor is malty and fruity. Faded hops. Smooth but unremarkable.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Bottle, courtesy someone. Clear golden straw color, frothy white head, sticky ring of lacing. Straw nose, skunky, some pears. Caramel and some pears in the flavor, some plum, sinewy chocolate in the finish. Malty and sweet, drinks better than the aroma but still meh.

This dopplebock was one of the last of my 43 beers tasted at beerfest. I can’t complain at this point. It tasted fine.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Bottle. Poured a deep golden color with thick fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet malt, grain, light hops, and some apple. Flavor is somewhat fruity, a little spicy with a touch of yeast with a sweet caramel background. A little soapy and somewhat thin in the mouth. Finishes dry. Strange Doppelbock but not bad.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Bomber. Pours a slight chill hazy deep golden- light copper- um- way too light for a doppelbock- foamy white head and some lace- strange look. Aroma is instant baby diaper, cream of wheat, DMS all over the place- cooked cabbage, and a shot of artificial saccharin like sweetness- almost like I am about to taste a sweet tart. Flavor si not quite as bad (at first)- artificial -like sweetness - dough, crackers, some toasted bread, but in a bad way- syrupy sweet- lyles golden syrup, definitely get the sweet-tart character but in the flavor it changes a bit to be more like smarties candies. Grassy and herbal hops- no real solid malt character and there is some more DMS as it warms with a tacky and astringent finish. Ugh- this is a pretty big mess and isn’t even close to a doppelbock or any real good lager for that matter. Ugh.

kramer (5735) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2009
22 oz bottle, via BA Floydster. Pours a clear dark gold with a small fizzy white head. Thick pale and bready malts on the nose with a touch of alcohol. Some sweetness and light grassy hops as well. Slightly sweet malt driven flavor, some honey and crusty bread with just a little noticeable alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little clingy, with soft fizzy carbonation. A little thinned out by the alcohol in this one maybe. Overall, not the worst beer, but a fairly simple rendition.

eaglefan538 (3012) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Poured a pale to clear golden color, weak initial white head, no lacing the entire way down. The aroma was off smelling grass, dirt, sweet candy elements, and did I say something off, almost like an unbathed dog. The flavor sorta followed in a rather disappointing and unimaginable way. Sweet candy foul grass at the fore, semi-metallic aspects, just a mess. Mouthfeel was light and thin, yet it had some sticky sweet elements too. Felt like I was on a plane to Germany that crashed into the Atlantic along the way. Actually, that would have been worse.
