The Lure:
Wise roasted malt lets maple sweetness and heavy fruitiness shine bright.

The Festivities:
Earth-laden molasses blend perfectly with the rich roasted malt bitterness. Maple tree shavings bear citrusy hoppiness and brown rum sweetness.

Transcendence:
An expertly carved piece is always a beauty to behold even if it does not stray in any form from the conventional.

I’m a real dopplebock fan, this is my new favorite. Rich and malty, but not syrupy like Ayinger Celebrator. A bit sweet, but unsurpassed in all other respects.

Took half a bottle to get used to. reminded me of yinpu a little bit without the odd aftertaste.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 9, 2004
12 oz bottle. Deep brick-inflected maple, this geysered out of the bottle but perhaps was just shaken a bit, the beer was fine...head recedes quickly to a small lasting light brown ring...creamy caramel nose with touches of vanilla and port is inviting if typical...the body is rich and creamy, almost milkshake-full, with sweet caramel and bitter chocolate duking it out and some roastiness that is welcome if a bit odd...fairly light, dry bitter finish caps the mostly sweet (caramel wins) body.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Chestnut coppery brown w/ a lasting beige head. Deeply malty: caramel, raisiny dark fruit, and bready malt. Very clean with malt dominating. Toasted malty flavor, well balanced, sweet but not cloying. Clean, dark fruit (raisiny) w/ light caramel. Semi dry malt flavored finish w/ a light hop aftertaste. Full bodied, smooth, low carbonation. Very well hidden alcohol. Outstanding doppel!!!! Great example of the style.

honey. ummmm. honey. or metallic. but honey. well, maybe.. metallic. a bit of a schizophrenic brew. much lighter than its appearance would indicate, though the initial nose of sweet maltiness is apt and true. not bad.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2004
A hazy dark brown beer with a disappearing light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and hints of alcohol. The flavor is also sweet with notes of caramel and a little chocolate.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2004
Dark brown with a foamy light tan head. Yeast and fruit aroma with toffee and chocolate tones. Flavor is sweet sugary and rather cloying. Too sweet in the long run.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2005 Bottle @ RBESG2005. Dark chewey malts in the nose. Dark brown body with a ruby tint, small tan head. Loads of dark malts and prunes in the flavor.

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