KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a semi-transparent medium brown with an orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) cream colored frothy head that dissipated quickly to a small amount of residue which produced some poor lacing. The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, caramel, dark fruit (cherries and plums) and also had a mild nuttiness to it. The taste was lightly sweet with a note of toffee early on and then had a nice bold maltiness come on board with notes of caramel, dark fruit and an ever so mild taste of alcohol. The flavor hung around for only a short while with a sweet fruity taste that was left to fade away rather quickly. Mouthfeel was just above light in body and had a kind of watery texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall a brew that was quite easy to drink and had a nice malty fruity flavor...

Bottle, imported to USA. APPEARANCE - dark amber color like you?d expect from a doppleock. Not much head to speak of. NOSE - somewhat weak. Not too much to it. I think it fits the style, but very little to get excited about scent wise. FLAVOR ? good flavot ? reminds me of siting in Augistiner brewery on the eve of Oktberfest a couple yeas ago. It?s a solid drinker.

MMR (476) - 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 (1789) - 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 (4039) - 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 (621) - 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 (2755) - 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 (729) - 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 (123) - 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.
