With 800+ ratings, itís probably impossible to add anything new that hasnít been said. So, I wonít. Iíll just determine the #ís like I normally would.

A very nice roasted aroma. A deep amber brown color and nice head. A pleasant nutty and roasted flavor to the beer. Goes down very smoothly.

# 200 I wanted this to be special for every hundred I get. Very dark mahogany color, with a beige head that stayed very little thorughout. Slight nutty, caramel, chococolate, piney, hoppy flavors going on. I didnít love this like the 4.17 score it has. Iím sorry but it didnít taste that great, ecspecially for the price.

btl. you can see how it looks in the photo. taste is very smooth, malty, dark ripe fruit, vanilla bean, burnt caramel, a bit of lemonseed and hop bitterness in the finish. It smells like it tastes for the most part, although the sweetness really stands out in the nose of this brew. not to say this beer is overly sweet, itís a perfect doppel bock. the best iíve had be cause itís well balanced and not too sweet. very nice, creamy mouthfeel too.

12 oz. bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar. Pourd deep, dark brown with bubbly head that lasted for a while. Didnít leave much lacing though. Aromas were strong caramel and yeast. Flavors were a little nutty and more delicious maltiness. Roasty Smokey finish. Very yummy beer.

Great beer, so much flavor but still balanced. Pretty amazing they can cram all of those different flavors into one bottle and still make it taste so smooth and drinkable.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2006 Looks like cola. Coffee taste. Smooth. Pretty color. Yummy! Itís a dark dark brown color with a deep dark fruit aroma. Super smooth and very easy to drink.

Pours a nice reddish brown color. The smell is very much like the taste. Malty, nutty, and fruity. Thereís a lot going on in this little beer. Itís all very well put together though, so Iím a fan. Goes down well and tastes great this is a good choice.

Lots of caramel comes through in this...and a light alcohol taste. Sweet malt. Complex. I highly recommend this brew.
