3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed 2/28/2009 (bottle):
Pours a very clear pale yellow color body, with a huge white creamy head, diminishing. Very sweet fruity aroma, like a fruit cocktail. Some nuttiness too. Some light apples and grapes, light fruit aromas. Effervescent. Some nuts too, like hazelnut or something. Carbonated slightly nutty taste, some alcohol. Lots of light fruit. Some maltiness and nuttiness present. Lots of flavor. Not too bad tasting. Banana taste. A little too sweet for my taste. Hotter as it warms up.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
650 ml bottle from Freddy. Pours a yellow gold with a diminishing white head that has some lacing. The aroma is moderate with boiled vegetables, corn and sweetened condensed milk. The taste is pretty much same as the aroma, very malt liquorish with many sweet off-flavors. The mouth feel is nothing to write home about. The finish is medium in duration with sweet canned corn. Overall: This is a dopplebock? wtf

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours an average thin, but deep, yellow with light carbonation. Nice head of white leaves a latticework along the edge of the glass as the foam dissipates. Aroma is corn flakes in skim milk. Flavor is glamourized corn syrup and corn flakes. Thin mouthfeel. Grassy finish. Not worth a re-visit.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear gold color with a huge head. Decent head retention and nice lacing. Odd aroma is full of corn like adjunct notes and grain. Taste is grain, sweet malts and grassy hops. Full bodied. This is an odd beast.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pale gold/amber with a substantial white head that laces the glass. Sweet corn aroma with some hop flower notes. Slightly off sweet malt, corn, hard candy and hop bitterness flavor. Pleasant, but not overly well balanced. Some inferior alcohol notes, but not bad by any means. I tend to agree with the previous rater - - kind of a higher quality ML. Doppelbock? No way Jose.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
been wanting this for 3 years, honestly thought i would be sitting at the brewpub on a cool day, but hey, a bomber while sitting at home, just as good .. Pours a golden colour, with a mighty fine white head, fantastic lacing to boot! .. some corn, honey, gater, types of aromas ... an interesting take on a bock, a nice brew but seems more like a high grade pro malt liquour ... check with poland, nothing happened ..

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Belmont Party.
Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate grainy & hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.
My expectations were not met.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle 2/15/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-A clear darker golden body with a small full white head. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of malt, hops, grass, yeast, sweetness, and a little doughy. This medium bodied brew is not bad with the alcohol being hidden rather well. Definitely a different color than most Doppelbocks but that maybe because it is a Helles. Not as malty as many but still rather tasty.
