ineedbeer (547) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Aroma has rich malt character. Lots of toasted bread with sweet caramel notes. A but of a raisin fruitiness to the beer. A touch stale as well. No diacetyl and only a hint of a hop aroma. Light alcohol is present in aroma as it warms. A touch of a nuttiness is also present. Pours a beautiful copper brown with ruby highlights. Light tan head that is a bit on the thin side with poor retention and little lacing. Flavor starts out with toasted bread and some nuts but has a background sweetness to it with some dark caramel notes. Light fruitiness and no diacetyl. No hop flavor but moderate bitterness to cut through the sweetness. Finish has a bit of staleness. Esters include raisins, and light banana and cider. A touch of alcohol in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Astringency is low but present. Moderate alcohol warmth. Overall this is a decent bock but not amazing. A bit too fruity for style and also tastes a bit on the old side. The melanoidins have pretty good complexity though showing toast, caramel and nuts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
2 liter flip-top growler from my sister-in-law. Pours a clear, deep amber-brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is clean and malty sweet with some caramel and slightly bready toffees, dark fruits, a light earth, and a hint of toast. Flavor is similar. Sweetly malted with some caramel and toffees with a touch of bready toast. Some dark fruits and a balancing earthy hop throughout with some noticeable alcohol, but not enough to distract. Finishes clean and malty smooth with some nice dark fruits and a light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a medium, smooth body and a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, a clean and easy drinking doppelbock. Nothing crazy, but it hides the alcohol pretty well and stays balanced. Not bad.

thetmaxx (729) - West Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Poured from the 2l growler. This was a pleasant doppelbock. Aroma was caramel, malty, toffee. Palate is medium full body, starts oily and think but finished watery and thin with a long carmel malt on the tongue. Overall pretty good.

Aroma is malty, toffee, noble hops. Appearance is brown and red with very small head. Taste is malty toffee caramel noble hops. Hint of roast. Alcohol slightly present. Palate is medium+. Malt lingers. Overall decent. Drinkable in large quantities for such a big beer.

mikesaum (592) - Newark, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Pours a dark brown with nice off white head. Aroma of toffee mats and bread. Nive malty flavor, very sweet flavor, but palate was a bit thin for a doppel bock, still good though

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with an off-white head that diminishes quickly. Smells sweet and somewhat nutty with a hint of funky herb. Flavor is of wheat and very sweet. Maybe some floral/herbal hop notes but not much. Almost cola-like, like they added corn syrup. Very thin, sweet and not complex.

Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Very Malty and sweet, but also clean on the finish. Easy to drink due to the watery finish, but that could get you in trouble.
