5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   Deep garnet in color, moderate dark beige head, frothy, a few rings of lacing.   Bready nose, slight dark pitted fruit, some raisin and fig.   Bready start, soft sweet maltiness, the dark pitted fruit is very minor.   Reminds me of a light Dubbel.   Not as bockish as I would have thought, but then again this is an American made example.   The 8% ABV seems well hidden.   A little bit of burnt caramel on the exit.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   A little light for a Doppelbock, but what is there is somewhat flavorful and clean.   Better than I was thinking, even if not totally what I would consider a Doppelbock.

This is a very drinkable dark beer. High in alcohol content so beware! Fantastic beer to help a retail manager relax after long December days!

Pours dark brown with little head that dissipates quickly. More full bodied beer. Tastes slightly sweet with notes of brown sugar, molasses and a little coffee. Alcohol is hidden pretty well. Definitely a strong, malty beer.

cmonster (953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle served in a dimpled mug. Pours dark cola in color. No head, no lace. Nose of sweet dates, molasses, brown sugar, and fig aroma and flavor. Sweet flavor. Medium body, decent carbonation, oily-slick texture, and a sticky malt finish. The alcohol is well hidden. A rich yet smooth doppelbock.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Toby. A cool label. Pours a dark brown color with a medium grey/beige head. The aroma is rich chocolate and toasted malts. A nice smooth bock, some tobacco and chocolate, light roast, some metallic hops perhaps. Enjoyable.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle. Poured dark red brown with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel and a bit of grass. Sweetish flavour with a bit of bitterness to keep it from being cloying. A bit of spice in the flavour, but not much. A little citrus in the finish, but again not a lot. Doesn’t taste as strong as it is.

boFNjackson (4024) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Bottle... Poured dark, amberish/brown with a tan head, that dissipated quickly into a bubbling ring around the surface of the beer. Aroma of caramelized sugars, toasted malts, and dark fruits. Tasted very similar to the aroma with the addition of dark, sweet, plum and alcohol notes that complemented nicely.
