MIBRomeo (2561) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Light brown pour w/ lots of slow rising visible carbonation and a little dense tan head w/ some good thick lacing. Light aroma typical of a doppelbock, but less effervescent that I would have expected lots of sweet grains and syrups fairly one dimensional sweet aroma the maple syrup is pretty clearly present. Average body and mouthfeel, a little clingy sweetness stays with the swallow. Flavor is pretty boring. Sweet maple syrup mixed with dopplebock mixed with some water. I can drink it, but I won’t do that again.

twindadplus2 (593) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bomber from Discount. Pours a murky brown color with basically no head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Flavor is an odd sweet and sour that I didn’t expect in a bock. Palate is smooth and creamy with a full malty finish. Not bad but I don’t think I would get it again.

sherm1016 (1158) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2012
22oz bottle from Otto’s Wine Cask. Pours a deep amber, light brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is malty, caramel, bread. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, toffee, bread, maybe just a touch of bitter hops, but not much, with a sweet, caramel finish.

hayduke (3385) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 23, 2012
This was a draft pour at THE LOCAL Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. Came in the glass at clear copper color with a beige head. Nose is woody with f loral hops. Full bodied with a rich sticky mouthfeel. Flavor is on the sweet aide with ripe fruit and birch. Finishes bitter sweet. Very unique and tasty brew.

AWISLguy (1334) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Bomber from Discount. Pours a reddish brown with an off white head. Some spotty lacing. Aroma has sweet caramel, some lemon, some toastiness and a bit of earth. Taste is of sweet, sweet caramel, some bitter lemon and some sour fruit. Little of the doughy breadiness that I enjoy in a dopple. Syrupy sweet and malty. More like a strong brown ale?

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
650ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing as it settles. Aroma is caramel and light pitted fruits with some sappy notes. Taste is a light fruit and caramel malty sweetness with a mild citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied and mildly carbonated. A decent brew for the style and recommended for a good tasting experience.

Bottle. Hazy garnet red with some brown highlights and a short lived fizzy head. Sweet molasses and grain aroma. Tastes of caramel, molasses, and light chocolate with a thick sticky palate. Good.

alexsdad06 (5562) - Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2012
22 oz. bottle shared by Bunker. Pours a deep amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has sweet caramel malts, birch syrup that comes off similar to maple but maybe a touch sweeter and ripe fruits. The flavor is ripe fruits, caramel, syrupy, with a hint of wood and roast to add some balance. Still tilted way to the sweet side.
