Good color, very little head. Good initial taste but seemed a little bitter in the after taste.

Bottle at home. Aroma is sweet toasted malt, caramel, toffee, hint of liquorice, raisins, dried fruits. Flavour is rather sweet and cloying with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is medium. There’s a richness to it, but I’m sorry to say this is just way too heavily malty and sweet for me to enjoy.

unclemike (2746) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 2, 2016
poured a medium head of finely sized light brown bubbles and asemi-opaque dark brown body. It has a very nice medium strength malt aroma with a very good malt Doppelbock flavor. It is very smooth from start to finish, slightly sweet and leaves a slight tingling sensation in the aftertaste.

fakebeersnob (272) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Pours a dark ruby color with a dense tan head that quickly disappears. Getting a bit of dark fruit/sherry in the aroma. Sweet smelling. The taste is sweet (but less so than I expected from the aroma). Get a bit of dark fruit. Malt. Very smooth. Very low carbonation. I have not had a dobbelbock in years, and am sure I am missing subtle hints of things. Nothing stands out in taste, but this is not to say it is bland. It is a very tasty beer from a style I rarely try.

BroSpud (1946) - , Massachusetts, USA - JAN 9, 2016
11.2oz bottle from Total Wine. Pours reddish amber with a tan head. Benchmark example of the style though one that I do not enjoy as much as other styles. Typical dark fruit sweetness of a doppelbock. Medium palate with a sticky mouthfeel.

Bottle @ home. Clear red-brown color, medium sized off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, sweetness caramel, chestnut, lightly dried fruits and figs. Sweetish finish with a slight bitterness. Decent body and carbonation.

On tap. Pours clear reddish amber with a small off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel berries, dried red fruits. Taste is similar, stronger fruity notes, some hops. Medium body, sweet aftertaste, light carbonation. Very good.

Good dark beer with lots of dark malty caramel flavors. Very little carbonation no real head easy to drink worth tiring.

Super malty without being cloying or overpowered with dark fruit flavor usually associated with Doppelbock. Foam retention thick and slightly caramel brown. Legendary brew, glad to finally grab a whole case of it!
