3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Pours a clear golden in color with a small to medium off white head that recedes....Aroma is grainy and malty, like it should be with a light hop presence reminiscent of other double helles. Taste: a medium bodied beer with alot of pale malt character- bready and doughy, light honey, some light earthy/spicy hops, tasted is skewed to the sweeter side as a helles should be. Tastes fresh, no corn or other off flavors noted. Mild noble hop flavor and some light hop bitterness in the finish. I am thinking either I drank something completely different or this one might be slightly underrated? Just classifying it as a doppelbock might be deceiving....

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bomber from the Pizza Port Bottleshop. Kind of a random selection. This didnít really remind me of a Doppelbock. Dark blond color with short-lived white head. Aroma is light fruits of apricot and lemon, with a stale hops and cereal malt note. Flavor is weak and almost unpleasant. Weak malt profile with no lasting flavors on the finish. Dry and thin bodied. Eh, whatever...

This bubbly yellow beer poured with a decent white head and a skunky malt aroma. There is a substantial caramel malt flavor with some hop bitterness and carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Daniel. Thanks. Pours out a yellowish color with a white head on it. Smell is sweet and somewhat fruity, some malt presence, not many hops. Bleh. Taste is smooth and easy to drink, no presence of hops. Very malty, perhaps too malty. Not really what I was expecting. Not really to style at all. More like a European Strong Lager than anything else.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
looks like a great pils with something extra; however, it is just a sweet and basic lager-like brew maybe like a creamy double PBR? :o) if not to style (I didnít rate to style), then this is a lot better than what it advertises to be... címon folks.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from BevMo. Dark gold color with a multifinger frothy white head. Aromas of grain and veg and canteloupe? Medium plus body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is grain, sugar (not kandi), and something like mild noble hop. It starts rather pale malty, but, barring what sticks to your lips, it finishes dryish. Even some hop bitter comes forth in the end. Itís a very different sort of thing. I think itís rather underrated because it is so far off the beer norms. Keep an open mind folks.

Bomber. Why do people want to clone this if gets such low ratings? Pours yellowish with 2 finger puffy tan head. Nose is uriney. Taste is sweet and slightly hoppy. This is all wrong stylewise, but all in all not horid.

On tap at beerfest in new Orleans. Pours a cloudy copper with a medium frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is a spicy fruit malt. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste is a dry malt with yeast and light spice. A decent doppelbock from abita.
