bhensonb (13611) - 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.

crossovert (10759) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
2 liter growler flip top. It pours beautifully into my 1 liter dimpled mug. It is a deep, dark brown, looks black int eh big vessel, and a unique brownish tan head. The smell is super malty. A nice dark doppelbock. It is sweet with some cocoa and caramel. There is an alcoholic twang and also some subtle dark fruits. It is big and bold, i like it. The initial gulp is quite flavorful, one of the sweeter, more flavorful doppelbocks. It is thick with molasses, cocoa, dark bread, some licorice, and dark fruit. It is just a looong quaff of malt. IT is a flavor deeper than you will usually come across. The mouthfeel is full and thick, but perhaps lacks a bit of carbonation. It is a mouth full of flavor. I have to lower drinkability a little bit because the sweetness is tiring after a while. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 01-23-2011 23:40:54

3fourths (8983) - 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.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2008
Pours dark brown with off white head. Aroma is malty, light roasted and hoppy. Taste, malty, some light caramel notes and sugar with hops in the background. There is light yeasty/hoppy taste that leaves an almost spicy feel. Light chocolate, leaves a thick mouthfeel.

marcus (8688) - 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.

Skinnyviking (8555) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
Bottle., Small and quickly disappearing white head. Very dark clear brown body. Roasted malt barley malt aroma with notes of cocoa. Spiciy and yet relatively sweet and sugary coffee flavor. Low carbonation and long sweet coffee aftertaste.
