500ml bottle. Pours dark brown with minimal head that quickly disappears. Malty and chocolate aroma. Sweet malty taste, and only light bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. OK beer, but nothing amazing for me ... perhaps Iím not a fan of doppelbocks?

500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark red with a dark brown hue, and a tan head with a tinge of yellow that quickly disappeared. Aroma is up front with alcohol, light dried fruit, light coffee, brown sugar, faint earthy notes, chicory, and a smell that makes me think of the brown Ricola lozenges. Medium bodied, and sweet with molasses, dried fruit, coffee, alcohol, a light floral note, and earthiness with a slightly bitter finish. I like it. Tasty.

Pours clear dark brown with lovely ruby highlights, frothy beige head. Aromas are pumpernickel and plums, some toffee. Palate is smooth and medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Malty flavours abound, with a warming boozy aftertaste and some sherry like fruitiness. Finish is long and semi sweet. Well deserved winner of best in show at the Ontario Brewing Awards. Just great.

Looks like it tastes - carmel orange, complex and bright. Itís very, carmel orange on the first sip and getís bigger along the way. More refreshing than expected and it creeps up on you, but too much like a carmel hammer for me. Might be better if it were a little lighter? Worth trying, at least a few.

This beer can bottle age. My experience is that 6 months to a year produces the best tasting results.

Not bad for a dunkel. Caramelly sweetness, some toast and chocolate. Picked this up in Toronto in 2013.

Pours still of the night dark with a dense one finger cap. Tasty ripples & smoothness work well. Goes down well while artic char sizzles on the grill on first spring weekend of 2013.

2013/04/08 - Pours a dark brown/amber color with a thick tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is biscuit, toasted malts, coffee, caramel and slight dark fruits. Taste is sweet caramel and burnt malts up front with a bitter, slightly astringent coffee finish. Better than I had expected.

Bottle from the brewery. Pours a mostly opaque brown with a bit of tan head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Smell is very interesting, some caramel, bread, and just a hint of both earthiness and fruit. Palate on the heavier side of full bodied with perfect carbonation. Taste is sweet at first and builds in sweetness only to be met with a slight bitterness before fading away quickly leaving just a slight bitterness on the back of the tongue. Could use a more complex flavour, but a delicious Dunkler Bock for sure.
