Quite tasty. I truly enjoy this beer. Smooth drink and fairly clean finish for a darky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep brown with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet bready malt. Taste is sweet chocolate-caramel malt followed by a hop finish. Very well-balanced and alcohol disguised. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle - Pours dark brown with a small tan head. It has a malty aroma with a slight hint of chocolate. The taste is very sweet with not much going on. Itís medium bodied and finishes sweet. Overall itís just okay.

Lopez brought me this one back from his roadtrip.. thanks again, brutha! Pours a dark brown, little bit of a head that disappeared quickly. Nose is malty, hints of butterscotch. Mouth is medium bodied, medium sweet, malty, some diacetyl, toasted bread, caramel. Not a world-beater, but not bad either. Iíd drink another one. Prost!

rumproasts (3576) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2013
bottle. Light brown with small head. Iím not a big fan of the dopplebock, so take my rating accordingly. Seems fairly average for the style.

Nuffield (3761) - 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 doesnít intrude. The finish strikes me as a little metallic. Bottle.

JFGrind (1893) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2013
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.
