Had decent hopes for this one, but came away disappointed. This is nothing more than a hearty bock. Sweet malt, caramel malt, thin... goes down like a Genesee bock... just a bit cleaner.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 50cl bottle @ Hilpeä Hauki, Kalakierros 2015. Mahogany color, thick off white head. Caramel, bread, sweetness in aroma. Flavor has sweetness, caramel, bread, mild hops. A really good doppelbock.

MMR (452) - NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2015
The bottle says it is a Starkbier (Strong beer) but it is aroma wise very much a typical Doppelbock. Good and malty aroma.

Russo (1769) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - APR 6, 2015
Clean reddish color with a nice off-white head that keeps a nice lacing until he end. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit, hints of plum and slightly alcohol. Flavor follow the aroma but not alcohol notes, hints of burned sugar, caramel and hops. Low carbonation and medium to full body with a sweet roasted finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone 4S

Iphonephan (4007) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2015
From a 33 cl bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a clear amber with an ecru head. Flavors of caramel. Super smooth mouthfeel. Very tasty beer.

rjplumer (595) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Deep dark ruby body with a thin off white head. Lightly carbonated. Sweet malt dark fruity aroma. Dark fruity taste with some light bitterness. Finishes wet but clean. Looks lightly carbonated but comes alive on your tongue. Feels potent at first but settles.

chinchill (2657) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2015
330 ml undated bottle served in a pilsner glass. Pours clear and with plenty of visible carbonation, but less than a 1 finger head despite a fairly vigorous pour. The tan head was reasonably durable. S: Roasted grains; hints of roasted nuts, toffee and dark dried fruits. T: Also malty with hints of raisins, dates, dried plums and roasted nuts. Lightly sweet overall but with some bitterness. M: Medium+ body. Medium-light carbonation. Just a touch syrupy. O: Very good.

SinH4 (645) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Dark amber-color with big beige head that goes down quickly. Aroma is mostly wet cellar (bottom-fermented feeling) and a bit of caramel. Bready caramely taste, thick, sirupy (not as extreme as other Doppelbocks), malt sweetness, not too sweet though. Boozy, warming finish. Okay, not exactly my kind of Doppelbock. Too much pure malts and too little dark fruits or coffee...

Mindwarp (118) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Pours red if you look at it with light behind it no real head. Aroma is all Carmel and malt, sweet. Tastes of sweet malts and dark fruit. This is a real easy doppelbock to drink, nothing overpowering.

Bottle. Best by 08/14. Pours clear dark amber/mahogany with short lasting fine beige head. Aroma is heavy on malt, toffee and caramel. Toasty, nutty, subtle berries. Taste is malty, caramel, toasty bread. Slight dry and warming alcohol in finish. Medium body.
