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 (280) - 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.

doublebock (496) - California, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Dark brown translucent color. Aroma of date and bread Flavor has notes of biscuit and grape. A bit of a flat palate

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 (576) - 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 (2359) - 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 (4699) - 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.

fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Pours dark amber brown, lightly roasted malt, grainy, little spice, little molasses, little dark fruits, little licorice.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2009
16.9 ounce fliptop bottle from Market Street Wineshop Uptown Charlottesville, VA. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a large head. Good head retention and ok lacing. Fruity aroma with toasted malts, spice and crayon. Bitter than expected taste with roasted malts, banana, caramel, clove, citrus and muted hops. Medium bodied.

what a great beer, especially for all of the licorice lovers in the world. the licorice taste seems to be hidden until the finish. A great beer especially using the purity laws. Seems much more complex then the average German beer (which are for the most also great).
