Very pretty pour! A transparent deep ruby with a dense head that leaves a foamy layer on top. Dark fruits, brown sugar and some earthy notes to the aroma, with lots of sweet and smokey malts. Rich flavor, nice mouthfeel - thick, if not a little flat. Some woody notes bring out the smokey flavor just enough to counter what would otherwise be far too sweet a brew. This is thoroughly enjoyable - I think it deserves a much higher rating than it has.

A slight malt aroma. Not much. Very full thick head with some graininess to it. This is a nice beer. A little sweetness, some chocolate, the thick head dominates the simple beer.

Bottleworks. Interesting smokey aroma. Pours a clear light brown. A bit carbonated with medium body but has a great finish

ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Reserved, rich, almost dunkel like doppelbock. Nose of bread, dates, chocolate, toast and even wine. Medium mouthfeel, would be fuller with more carbonation. Additional notes of licorice, dark chocolate and caramel in the taste. Overall, a balanced but slightly musty doppel.

popkow (303) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Dark brown with a small head. This doppelbock did not move me with a strang taste that I could not identify but my guess is cloves meeting licorice. Unique brew that I would pass on.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 18, 2009
500ml swingtop. Clear, dark reddish brown with a thick, tight beige head. Sweet nose, malty caramel, spicy with cinnamon, a bit of alcohol. Sweet malty flavor, lightly fruity, interesting earthy bite with peppery notes. Not as rich and sweet as most. Mild warming deep in the gullet. Not bad.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Pours dark caramel color with a hint of ruby and a frothy light tan head. Brown sugar and molasses malt heavy aroma. Sweet toffee flavor with some spice (cloves) and alcohol in the background. Medium body, middle of the road doppelbock.

beastiefan2k (2963) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2009
500mL swing top with a different label though. Poured into a St. Paul snifter glass. Color is a clear dark brown. Aroma is dark , earthy, bark with very clean malts behind it. Taste is similarly earthy with a bit of an herbal, plant-like (maybe its hops) finish. This is a nice, easy drinking beer, very underrated doppelbock.

EithCubes (5305) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Swing-top. Super malty nose with some grape and molasses, sweet caramel. Sticky, a lot to look forward to. Dark brown (with ruby) pour with Coke-like head and activation sites. Molasses and brown sugar, a touch of caramel and toffee-funk. Surprisingly dry for the opening salvo. Molasses and toffee, a little earthy. Medium-full body, well-hidden alcohol. Decent enough DB without any distinguishing characteristics.
