dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - JUN 15, 2008
pours black from what i remember with a tan head, i got mostly chocolate malt in the aroma and flavor as well, this is just average for a doppelbock.

Pours a five+ finger almost tan head that fades quickly and leaves some lace. Deep mahogany almost black color. Light-medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Malty nose. Flavor is sweet fruity with slight fruity/chocolate finish. $4.70 for a 500ml flip-top bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 20, 2008
This dark brown ale poured with a large brown head and a malty aroma. I hopefully poured the beer into a Ayinger Celebrator glass but, alas, the flavor is way too thin for a doppelbock. There is enough caramel malt taste to make this beer drinkable, but not truly enjoyable.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Bottle. Something to sip while uploading ratings. Pours Balck with 3 finger tan head that was creamy and white at some parts. The aroma is malty, sweet, etoh, a bit sticky in the nose if thats possible maybe some caramel. Flavor is rather bland, malty some etoh but very minor, some german hops coming through but mostly very sweet overall. nothing special here. but decent and easy to drink.

Nice malty doppelbock. Poured dark with a rich head. Flavors were malty, of caramel, and pitted fruit. Lacked some complexity and was overall not impressive.

500ml bottle, 1300th rating - Pours clear dark amber with a two finger light tan head. The aroma is of sweet caramel malt and a touch of dark fruit along with some alcohol. The flavor is similar with those sweet malts leading the way. I’m tasting the alcohol rather more than I expected as 7.2% isn’t all that high. There’s some hops buried in there somewhere but I think it’s the alcohol more than anything that takes the edge off the sweet malt and leads to the fairly dry finish. Some toasty molasses lingers on the palate for awhile.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2008
500ml swingtop bottle pours a dark purple/brown with a one inch tan head. Fruit yeast esters, a slight soy/fuel note and a rich tobacco/dry wood/brown sugar/pepper yeast notes. Medium bodied, sticky, slightly on the sweet side, with a cracker flavored malt base, some sweet plum/cherry/tobacco fruity notes, drying into an ashy and woody finish. Very nice.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2008
Courtesy of fishingnet. Pours dark brown with nice tan head. The aroma is mild with a variety of sweet dark malts mixed with plums and dates. The taste is roasty malts, faint chocolate malts mixing with the odd dark fruity esters. There’s also a mild tartness and spiciness to boot.

rcweir (139) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Poured dark brown, with thin head, moderately heavy carbonation. Aroma of sweet malts, prunes. Depth of malts hides the alcohol well, rounded profile, prunes, brandy, some burnt toast. A dry resiny/astringent finish.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 20, 2008
(500 ml bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/massachusetts/w target=blank>Julio’s Liquors) Pours dark rubyish brown with about 1/2" of tan head that recedes to a thin covering. Aroma is what you might call brown sugar, chocolate and molasses (those are best descriptors I could come up with because aroma notes aren’t exactly like any of those). Mouthfeel is medium-full, lightly prickly, fairly smooth. Tastes mostly dark and chocolatey with maybe some traces of port and molasses. Flavor is quite muted for style and with very little complexity but OK tasting. Not as chocolatey as TH Liberator but slightly similar. Has a bit of a warming alcohol effect that snuck up on me. Won’t make the doppel hall of fame but not too bad anyway.
