Bierkrug (2108) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen (In USA), Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 15, 2014
On tap in Coral Springs, FL Pours a medium tan head with an amber color. Aroma and taste are straw, caramel, fruits, candy sugar, malt and hops. Sweet palate. Not a bad try at this difficult style but still a bit off the mark.

BillKismet (3289) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2014
Rich caramel color, slight head. Amber malt, honeyed, and with a touch of maple, and some deep melanoidin malt. Understated, but pleasingly complex. Mouthful of freshly milled grains. Medium caramel and moderate maltiness. Honeyed malt finish. Nice, but different from the typical doppel.

bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 9, 2014
UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 Tap. Pours clear orange, small of white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is caramel, nutty, apple, grape, sherry. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, fairly harshly acidic. Medium body, a bit of ABV burn. Interestingly, the harsh acidity that was so offputting initially fades with time. After 10 minutes or so in the glass this beer is much more drinkable, and actually a decent example of the style.

chucklemation (316) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pours a transparent brown with a foamy white head. Has a faintly sweet aroma. Taste is sweet caramel and even a touch of fruit. The sweetness becomes a bit much at the end, but this is still a very tasty doppelbock.

Tap at Parlor City. The first thing that hit me was sweetness and then came the caramel. Nice doppelbock.

On tap at Bell’s total tap takeover at Tap and Mallet. Clear, heavy, reddish, not much head. Nose is reminiscent of plum wine. Very fruity. Palate fruity, sweet, sticky, a bit of malt notes. Some cherry. Not a lot of subtlety compared to the German’s but still very good. Rich and full throughout.
