4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 This is everything that a beer should be. Full flavored, smooth, rich, etc. etc. Itís pretty much everything that itís hyped up to be. My only complaint is the hefty price tag, at 17 dollars a six pack before tax a deposit, this is most certainly a "special occassion" beer.

This is certainly a complex and great beer. I didnít enjoy it as much as many others though. There was an odd taste that I didnít particularly enjoy. I couldnít put my finger on it. Overall, it was very good, but I have high expectations for a $3.00 hyped bottle.

If the smell and apperance alone made up the beerís rating this would be a 5. This however still gets REAL high marks. Excellent beer. Malty, nice not too strong alcohol taste. A strange mixture of sweetness and hoppy bitterness. Very rich though. If you want to get drunk, look elsewhere. If you want an amazing beer. Here ya go.

Very rich sweet, malty, bubblegum taste. Very dark brown color. The feel was thick...almost chewy. Impressive beer.

Sweet malty, nutty aroma. Deepest brown, medium cappuccino head. Incredible malt, caramel flavour, faint bitterness. An intensely complex brew, somewhat sweet. A true Dopplebock!

One of the most beautiful pours you will ever see. Sweet, nutty aroma and taste. A very complex beer that teases your taste buds between the sweetness, maltiness, and underlying hoppiness. The sweet caramel like taste is just a little too strong for my tastes. But an excellent beer none the less.
