COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a dopplebock high-gravity lager. This one is big, black and sweet. It’s malty character is derived from two caramel malts along with Munich malt to create the smoothest high-gravity beer this side of the pond.

Nuffield (3636) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Disappointing chocolate malt flavor that seems one dimensional, along with a rather indifferent body--not thin, but not attractive. A little oily. The alcohol provides a little tingle but doesn’t intrude. The finish strikes me as a little metallic. Bottle.

Dark brown full bodied, bread, roasted caramel malts, light bitterness come together in this Doppelbock. High alcohol, but, easy on the palate.

On tap at fatpour. Pours slightly brown black. Flavor is crisp malty chocolate. Light mouthfeel for a doppel. Crisp sweet slightly bitter coffee finish. Pretty tasty but not much depth here.

12oz bottle. Deep opaque brown, approaching black body. Thin, oily beige head. Sweet chocolate tinged aroma. Leaning pretty heavily into the brown chocolate flavors, this is a pretty good Stateside Doppelbock. Soft delicate noble hop balance. Smooth lager tones, still remains pretty drinkable even with the high ABV. Doesn’t really have the big, pungent yeast characteristics you might expect, rather straightforward. A touch better than average, for an American version.

Pour is dark, dark similar to a "light porter" or dark amber. Head is dark white that retains for only a minute or so. First sip is a light, almost creamy start to a sweet malty almost bitter/roasty chocolate finish. Light carbonation. Overall not a bad beer but not a great one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hotstuff (3906) - Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2013
Backlog rating 4-17-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a small tan head with poor retention, very little carbonation and lacing, transparent body, and a dark brown hue with an orange tint. The Aroma is malty, sweet and chocolate. Ditto for the Taste. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied Dopplebock. All-in-all, this beer needs more flavor for the style and on that fact it is a disappointment as I enjoy drinking this style of beer.

Had this in a flight on tap. No head and it looks very dark. Amazing aroma. Its very malty and caramely. Great brown sugar, caramel, cream taste. Its a little sour too but overall its really good.

Pours thick murky dark brown with no head (by the time I got to it in the flight...). Aroma is malty. Brown sugar and caramel and malt. Taste is sweet caramel and malts up front with hints of coffee at the end. A great beer that I would get again.

Naka (698) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Pours a pretty fizzy burnt caramel. Small-off white head that was gone quickly. Aroma is strong brown sugar and an unappealing minerally medicinal smell. Rich, overly malty flavor. The bottle is old and it is all kinds of oxidized, but it is ripe. Tastes like caramel Windex. Dumped.
