On tap at Dan’s. The pour is amber-ish, at best, with a lot of lighter golden types of visuals. There isn’t much head to be found, and the lace is just as existent. I wouldn’t know this was a dopplebock by looking at it. The aroma has a lot of caramel maltiness to it, but it remains light and pleasant. The flavor is really similar. Somewhat basic, but not overly bad. The mouth feel is light, carbonated, and the aftertaste is pretty unique. It’s not overly bitter, but it’s nothing like the caramely sweetness of the nose.

From bottle, courtesy of Ed. Light caramel and cherry wood, biscuit. Sweetish with light alcohol notes and few hops. Coppery amber clear with quickly dissipating head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation and light warming. Starts and stays moderately sweet, with caramel and biscuit. Astringent cherry wood notes and light grain dust. Nutty bitter finish with lingering sweetness. A bit of raisin in the after.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent amberish brown with thin light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty and doughy with notes of mild caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Eh.

On tap at Slows in Detroit. Decent bock, dark with a thick head. A tad astringent in the finish.

12 oz. bottle, consumed on 8-17-13. I purchased this the previous winter, so it has at 6 to 10 months of aging on it. Scents of chocolate, carob, caramel, orange, and urine. A bit meaty and mineral-y in the aroma. Somewhat low-end beer smell. Pours reddish copper. Effervescent with some suspended particulate. Dull color except in the light. Mall to moderate amount of golden taupe / tan head. Some suspended particulate. Malty and dry taste. Muffin with a touch of plum in the flavor. Lively in the palate. Medium body. Perhaps this beer is not as bad as the score implies, but I didn’t know where to upgrade it.

nuplastikk (4901) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2013
12oz bottle. Amber body, unfiltered, glowing. Thin off white head. Not a bad aroma for the style, some fruity yeast notes true to the style, rich caramel. I bought this for 2.99 a six pack in July, it was brewed in December, but it really holds up rather well still. Meaty, chewy thick sugary malt, not quite there in terms of a quality German example, but it is a decent enough representation. Somewhere in between a bock and and doppelbock. Loses points by being a little boring but earns them back by holding up for 7 months.

Pours a clear Amber with a small, fine bubble head. Aromas are of light malt and very little hop. Taste is very thin with bitter malt and a hint of hop, slightly sour and light booze finish. Tastes watered down
