CamdenD (1135) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 12, 2005
Beautiful roasty nose and smooth, smooth sticky taste. It’s just a bit thin on the aftertaste, but this is a very nice beer. Very little carbonation and just like a handpulled beer. Nicely done.

330 ml bottle. Deep dark brown beer. Beautiful toasted nut aroma, complex caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Slightly earthy aroma with a lot of sweet syrupy malt character. Sweet caramel flavour, nice creamy body with a long toasty finish. A touch of pepper and very faint bitterness.

Sammy (10317) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
Licorice and anise and grassy aroma. Very dark brown, carmel coca-cola and well carbonated, large but dissapearing head, lace, sourness like a Baltic. cocoa powder in medium mouthfeel. Mixed up well with different other tastes, more of a cooking beer by itself.

DYCSoccer17 (3545) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Bottle. New Label. Sweet, sticky malty aroma with mild vinousness in the aroma. Some nuttiness and some oxidized caramelly aromas. Transparent garnet color with a light tan head. Start is mildly sweet, turning roasy and very smooth with lots of caramel malts. Sweet notes, and a bit toastiness. This is seductively smooth and very drinkable. A great beer that should be rated higher.

lamas (1526) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Bottle. Label is different than that in the picture. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a pretty old bottle since it came from Chevy Chase Liquors in DC where they apparently hold onto their stock until it sells. A near-opaque, DEEP, DEEP mahogany pour with a thin khaki head. Aroma is of molasses, coffee, dark chocolate, anise and wheat bread. Carbonation is a little high. Rich and thick. A good bit of chocolate, coffee and molasses in the taste. Starts off with some sweet malts that exude a little chocolate-covered raisin quality. Some bitter hops make a token appearance at the end. The slightest bit of warming alcohol is present in the finish. An excellent full-bodied beer.

Baler (7) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2005 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2007 Pours muddy red with a quickly-dissipating head with a malty raisin aroma. Tastes of earthy molasses, light floral hops and notes of coffee and dark chocolate that make this a perfect after-dinner treat. Satisfying alcohol esters in the finish. Hops become more pronounced with warming. The Al Green of Doppelbocks.

shrubber85 (9607) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2005
UPDATED: APR 24, 2009 Bottle. Rich molasses malt aroma - mild tannins. A dark brown / blood red color with negligible head. Thick molasses malt flavor - moderate hops bitterness and astrigency. Very nice body. This is a nice easy drinking doppelbock but may not be strong enough for some.
