UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 750ml Bottle. Pours with with medium carbonation providing a two inch tan finely bubbled head that dissolves to reveal nice lacing. The beer is dark amber, but despite it’s darkness is not cloudy. The aroma is not intense but is more than adequate and provides rich notes of carmel, honey, and dark baked bread. The taste is amazing having a slight slight hop bitterness mixed with a little burnt carmel bitterness. The main component of the taste comes from the substantial malt backbone, providing tastes of chocolate, honey, and dark baked bread. The palate has medium body and slightly sticky. The finish provides lingering light sweetness of carmel and chocolate. I am going to purchase as much of this beer as I can get! A great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dalekliz (901) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours a murky dark red-brown with an off-white head that fades to a ring. Very sweet aroma, dark fruits, molasses, and brown sugar, with caramel malt, some booze and wood. Taste is rich, starts sharp, with wood, malt, yeast, spices, then picks up a huge sticky sweetness, of cooking sherry, dates, figs, and brown sugar. Lingering richness that coats your mouth. A little overwhelming but very nice still.

maxwelldeux (4182) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear reddish brown color with a fairly large frothy tan head on there. Nose has some nuts and toffee to it with a fair amount of grains to it. Taste is a little sweet and even nuttier, and much lighter than I would have guessed for the ABV.

kramer (5431) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger frothy beige head. The nose is thick and malty with heavy caramel and a noticeable alcohol level. The flavor is very smooth and rich with lots of caramel sweetness and a bit of brown sugar. Incredibly, it’s not all that sticky or overly sweet, I think this is pretty well attenuated. Medium bodied and rather thick and chewy with nice soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice stuff, I like me a nice hefty Dopplebock.
