Dogbrick (8673) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Sample at the Uber-Kurt (10,000) Celebration on 12/13/2014. This beer is a hazy ruby-amber color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruit, malt and caramel. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, dark fruit and toasted malt. The finish is fruity with a raisin and malt aftertaste. Solid beer overall.

Mindwarp (89) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pours a dark amber almost black with small off white head. Aroma - malt, dark fruit, caramel. Taste fallows the nose but sweet. Overall a good beer but since it is retired it doesnít matter.

Caramel brown pour with aroma of nuts, chocolate, and fruit. Malty flavor with nuts, chocolate, toffee, and fig. Very nice beer!

ryanfolty (1902) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2014
November 26, 2014 - bottle from Everetts, I think. Brownish orange pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was chocolate, toffee and some grain. Taste was consistent with aroma, but a touch of spice was also there. Medium bodied and smooth to drink. This reminded me of being back in Germany, very well done.

kathouse (1106) - Nevada, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Reddish brown with just a wisp of foam. Chocolate and toffee aroma. Reminds me more of a barleywine. Rich, sweet body. Bready. Noticeable alcohol. Drink as a night cap or aperitif. Like that word?

750 aged from Caponeís and Whole Foods. Poured hazy brown with tan head. Nose was earthy vienna malt, nuts, brown sugar, mild rauch, caramel. Tasted rich, complex, with earthy malt notes, brown sugar, toffee, and mild rauch and figgy fruit.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 "Up until 2012 (quad) the Decadence releases from Alesmith had been an ever so slight letdown. Not that they werenít good. They were good. Very good. But for an anniversary release from one of the best brewerís on the planet, I wanted them to be elite, and they always fell juuuust a little short of that. Til last year. They nailed the quad. Itís one of the best in style Iíve ever had. And now, I can say the same for the Doppelbock. This stuff is a no frills but EXTREMELY well made brew. Notes of fresh baked bread, caramel, toffee, light spices and yeast hit your nose and your palate and keep you coming back for more. This came from out of my area, but Iíll be looking for more."

Bomber - draft and bottle close to release date in 2013. Although the rating is not terrible itís a bit of a miss for me when you consider Alesmithís track record. I get some of the chewy malt sweetness but not enough. On top the alcohol is a bit too noticeable. Not sure if time will help this one out but we will see.

Bottle from Philly Steak. Earthy, caramel, toffee, toast and dark fruit tastes. Alesmith never dissapoints.
