ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Bottle from Sunset Grill drunk Summer 2008. I guess it really dosent matter if this is listed as a Doppelbock (as it was previously) or if the brewery intended it to be a doppelbock, because it isn’t and is certainly a poor example of the style. Frankly, it dosent matter what it’s listed as, the beer is so heavily flawed. Weak, watery pour with very little head showing, clear and filtered and a maroon-beige colored body. Nearly infected smelling, with off-putting bacterial and/or strange mineral notes. Some alcohol in the nose and a light dose of caramel. The flavor is very washed out, with a watery mouthfeel and too much alcohol on the finish. Nearly tart in flavor with raisins, plums and red fruit-like notes from the yeast, I assume? Caramel-raisin maltiness is undone by the alcohol cutting through it, while more tartness shows up on the finish. A sort of spoiled fruit tartness, that is....Not my cup of tea, whatever the case, and a seemingly poorly brewed example of whatever it’s trying to be.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle at Caffe Berry, Sliema. It pours clear golden-orange with a small white head. The nose is sweet, sticky, grainy, dough, stone fruit, cake and candied citrus peel. The taste is bitter-sweet, sticky, boozy, toasty grain, orange peel, light candy, sponge cake with a dry, warming finish. Medium+ body , fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Not a whole lot of depth to it, but gets you buzzed quick.

A decent amber belgian ale. Medium bodied, some caramel sweetness but it has a stale, tobacco finish.

EdwinLitzau (320) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2014
Amberkleurig, redelijke schuimkraag, ruikt zoet en kruidig. Smaakt prima, wel wat erg zoet, winter/kerstbier.

aleksander9 (423) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2014
Deep copper with a small head. Aroma is caramel, raisins, some spice and malt. Sticky mouth feel with low carbonation. Aftertaste is sweet caramel, some floral hops, dryness, tobacco and alcohol. Overall: Okay. Boring, but well brewed.

Buon sapore ma un po’ troppo aggressiva. Interessante retrogusto e aroma. All’apparenza potrebbe sembrare priva di corpo.

WheatKing (1296) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Small bottle, not the flip top seen here. Pours deep gold, off-white head. Nose is floral, yeast spice, paper, alcohol. Flavour is same with toffee and pepper. My words are failing to describe how this gets such a relatively high rating from me... the floral toffee and yeast worked well together.

Bottle@Home. Sweet, malty, raisin aroma. Amber, beige head, good lace. Very sweet, very full, dark yellow fruit, raisin, malts. Too sweet.
