IrishBoy (3821) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 29, 2008
50 cl bottle from BevMo, Valencia. nose is some floral hopiness, golden raisins, caramel, cinnamon, and some vanilla notes. Clear dark rusty brown with a medium beige head. Flavor is not as sweet as I would have guessed from the nose, but only a slight sweetness combines with some slight hoppy bitterness, mixing with some caramel, molasses, and toffee. Finish is a lingering light bitter note. Very decent doppelbock.

bhensonb (10906) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Swingtop from BevMo. Deep ruby color with a few bubbles - no head. Aroma of darker caramel and dark fruits. Medium body with mild, almost creamy, carbonation. Flavor is light roasted caramel - but dark. The dark fruit is not heavy, kind of like a little prune or raisin. Finish is somewhat sweet, but there is a certain astringency. Actually quite fruity after awhile.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2008
Sampled from 500 ml swing top bottle during Cellars Wine and Sprints Wednesday beer tasting. Pours a semi-clear reddish brown brew with a creamy beige head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, dark pitted fruits, raisin, a touch of mince meat pie filling and plums. Taste is medium bodied light carbonated with flavors of caramel malt, raisins, a touch of cinnamon, roasted nuts and tropical fruits. Finish is semi-sweet with a light raisin and caramel aftertaste.

RedSox2004 (1229) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - DEC 10, 2008
Poured dark brown with a two finger head that dissipated to barely any film and left minimal lacing. Aromas of caramel and tart fruit intensified as the beer warmed up a bit. It actually became quite strong and was very pleasant - additional aromas of raisin, cinnamon, and nuts came through late. Flavor was similar, and featured roasted malts and a slight warming alcohol sense. Medium body and minimal carbonation. Interesting how much bettter this beer became as I worked my way down the glass.

Bottle. Red-brown, small white head. Aroma is strong caramel, sweet, winish. Flavor is similar, a little thin in flavor, still quite drinkable. Some cocoa and perhaps cinnamon in finish. Little on the dry side for a doppel bock.
