not bad aroma is a little off and so is the flavor but a good brew nonetheless

650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a small off-white head that recedes to a film. The aroma is moderate in strength with sweet malts and a light earthy spiciness. The flavor is similarly sweet with a classic dopplebock character including, mild apples, pears, syrup, grains, mild spicy hops and some woody notes. The palate is viscous and smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is long with lingering bitter nuts and syrup. Overall: Very tasty well done dopplebock.

BeerandBlues2 (9461) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear tawny with a small, fizzy and bubbly light tan to off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is lightly sweet birch and dates, plum and fig fruity ester notes, light caramel and nutty malts with some toast character and herbal hops near the end. Flavor is upfront fruity esters and birch syrup with good supporting malt, light bitterness to pull your thoughts away from the sweetness just for a minute, then a sweet finish with some alcohol drying. Full body and medium-light carbonation.

22. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head. Light stringy lace. Aluminum nose. Creamy heavy body, soft carb. Graham crackers and aluminum on the mid palate. They must have intended for this to turn out differently.

Beaver (1272) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2012
22oz bottle. Pours ruby amber with a small fizzy off-white head that quickly goes to a thin film.

The aroma is sweet caramel and toffee, maple and honey.

The flavor is sweet sugary caramel and toffee with a slightly bitter drying finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, the syrup adds interesting notes to the doppelbock. It’s a bit on the sweet side for me.

Bottle. Amber-brown beer with a light tan head. Caramel and oak aroma. Caramel and dark fruit flavor with wood. Medium bodied. Dark red fruit and caramel lingers with wood and light banana.

crossovert (7019) - Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2012
A bock that has diabetes. Super sweet, way out of the bounds in terms of sweetness of a doppelbock.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Light hazy amber, thin head. Aroma of caramel, syrup, roast, honeyed biscuit. Taste is roasty, nice bitter, fungal earthy finish, mostly sweet though. Not a huge fan of this.
