500 ml bottle on clearance from BevMo. Very dark, even for a doppelbock. Aromas were malty and dark fruit. Prune and some caramel. Touches of cherry. Flavors were similar with a bit too much alcohol. Some metallic in the finish, and some bitterness that should have been sweeter. Just OK

notalush (4872) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2008
50cl swingtop bottle - pours a dark red/brown, with good clarity, and a large, fizzy head that disappears completely, leaving a beer that looks like a glass of back cherry soda - bizarre aroma that takes some getting used to, but becomes quite nice - aroma of melon, cherries, flowers, wintery spices, rum-soaked raisins - the flavor is quite similar, with sweet chocolate covered cherries most prevalent - the rum/raisin character is far in the back - some bittering spices try to keep the sweetness from getting out of control, and do a decent job of it - actually, it completely obliterates it after a while, leaving a semi-dry, spiciness, and strong alcohol warmth where the sweet, fruity character used to be - a kind of copper/metallic character develops in the finish, but is very faint - starts strong and then continues to go downhill to the very end.

I’m not a doppelbock fan, they’re too sweet. But, this one is a pretty solid db. It smells great and has a pleasant raisiny malt taste with little bitterness.

Strykzone (4966) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Fantastic aroma. It is full of dark fruit, caramel, and brown sugar. Flavor has some harshness. Fruits such as raisins and plum are present as well as sugar and alcohol. It is completely devoid of carbonation and feels oily and sugary in the mouth. The aroma was super but flavor could be more exciting. A nice beer, though.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Swing-top Bottle: Pours deep amber/brown with an initially thick tan head that fades. Sweet malt aroma with mainly indications of brown sugar and some sweet lager fruitiness. A bit metallic as well. The mouth feel is slick and the flavor is sweet. Has some raisiny notes, and the bitterness, however, is very metallic and doesn’t balance the initial sweetness harmoniously. Eh...

thegreenrooster (3220) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Pour is a almost black with a nice sized tan head. Aroma is some caramel malts but very faint and hidden. Flavor is some molasses and dark fruit with a touch of wood smoke. Finish is a bit watery and there is a bit of alcohol burn. Everything is low key in this beer and that is just about enough to put it only in the good category.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Pours a transparent amber mahogany with a thin ring of light tan head. Aroma of sweet, lightly toasted bready dark caramel German malts and a touch of noble hops. Body starts with good fullness some sweet caramel malt and a larger amount of bitterness than I’m used to in the style toward a drier bittersweet, slightly earthy and peaty finish. An ok doppelbock, but I’d like a little more prolonged sweetness.
