Very dark ruby reddish-brown in color. Dark roasted malts, coffee, caramel, toffee notes. This is a full bodied dopplebock with a smooth mouthfeel. Starts sweet but finishes dry and somewhat bitter. This is a tasty dopplebock.

Nose is smoky. Dark in color with a thick rich head. Great flavor, very malty with a hint of chocolate. One of the best doppelbocks out there.

Meaty, chewy, buttery. Darker appearance than any other doppelbock i’ve seen. It’s a lot like drinking a stout. While I think this is a good beer, I kept thinking I was drinking a stout and not a doppelbock. I was expecting more out of this beer. A very overrated beer IMO.

Porued into a magnificently awesome glass of perfection . Taste the molasses, and carmel with and strong malty finish. Difficult to find, costly, but worth it on occasion. Rich dark color, one hell of a fine example of Quality.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Re-Rate 08/07/02: As deep as garnet gets, before it becomes brown, the head is generous, frothy, long lasting and tonnes of beige lace. Nose is malt, caramel, smoky, and maybe even a bit ’peatish’. Front has a molasses like sweetness, with a light to medium top, the finish is dry, nice hop bite, lightly carbonated and ’One Hell of A Good’ doppel bock. Ranks #100 on my current top 1000 beer list.

Pours with a a nice thick head, a light tan in color, that slowly dissipates, lacing the glass as you drink. A rich brown in color, it blends a full and creamy feel with slightly sweet malt flavors and a faintly dry finish. Fantastic.
