Decent ordinary beer. I would not call this a Doppelbock. It is way too thin to be that in my opinion.

Pours a deep red and a small tan head. Aroma is small and very sweet. Flavor is malty and woody with some notes of brown sugar. Good but not the best of its kind but it is quite tasty.

12 oz bottle: Pours very dark with a tan head. Very thick consistancy. Tastes very fruity, with an unusual aftertaste. Good beer, but I’ve had better.

Darkness warshed over The Dude. This beer is dark with hints of red. Flavor is quite complex. Starts with dark chocolate, follows with cherries, and finishes with a zap of vanilla extract. Only complaint is that it ends up a little too sweet. Great beer though!

Well this one I tried at Augustiner, on draught, not bottled.the Aroma was mild yet intense malts - a contadiction in terms I know, but accurate. The head as you would expect with a draught brew was light and subsided mostly, but retained a little even at the end of the glass. The flavour was decidedly veinous, mildly hoppy, the flavour lingering with hints of liquorice in the background ending with a faint sherbet like taste. No stickiness was evident. Not bad at all, hic....

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Dark brown, scant tan head. Bready aroma. Roast, fruit, wood, very slight dry bitterness. Medium body I agree with Probiere, quite portlike. This might, like port, be very good with some high-cacao chocolate. Excuse me for a moment while I get out a piece of the Lindt 85%... Oh wow. That’s a darn good combination.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Great super dark tea color, little head. Big bread and toffee, some chocolate, big yeast smell. Taste raisins and dust, brown sugar, dusty finish? Dryish...bitter chocolate, like a super permium bar? Medium body with oily feel. Port-like when warm.

Pours reddish brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is steeped in caramel and malt with some hints of fruit and brown sugar. Taste is more caramel and brown sugar mixed with malt. Sweet taste but very smooth. Not overdone or too sweet to be tolerated. Like a smoother Paulaner Salvator. Mouthfeel is generally smooth with a sweet finish. Sort of sticky as well. Some bready notes towards the end. Damn good beer!

Is it a triple or a bock? Seems to balnce between the two styles. Great at room temperature, thick, and dark. Sip and enjoy.
