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 (703) - 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.

This was not as advertised. Bland chocolate and malt flavors that finish way too quickly.

Bottle. Pours a near black. Medium tan head. Aroma of roast and chocolate. Flavor of roast, chocolate and caramel. Very creamy texture. Roasty mouthfeel. No bitterness. Very tasty. I really liked this. Will try again.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Dark burgundy, decent sized head. Smells like prune, raisin and red wine. Seems a little boozy, like its a little higher than 9.5%. Some more dark fruit in the flavor, more red wine, prune, some woody flavors. Ok...

Bottle->shaker. Dark drown with little head. Aroma is faint, has dark fruits and sweet malt. Taste has chocolate and malt, with a burnt finish. Interesting.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a ton of foamy tan head. Smells very fruity with raisin and prunes scents. Tastes fruity with a slight coffee aftertaste. Good beer.

Bottle. One of the best American Doppelbocks Iíve had. Very dark brown in color. Really, rather light but tasty in flavor. Nice slight nutty caramel with just a touch of bread. Nice head with some lace. really good beer.
