UPDATED: MAR 7, 2008 Bottle pours a rather thick red brown color with a nice tan head and some lace. The aroma is of subtle malt. the flavor is malty, caramel, and just very nice. The palate is uber-rich. This is some thick stuff. Overall, this is real good.

Poured ruby red with a thick creamy yellowish tan head. Sweet and spicy malt aroma. Taste of caramel, fruit, and spice with the finish being just slightly alcoholic and a very nice mouthfeel.

Sweet juicy malt! This is for sure a malt lovers dream. The color is brown red and the taste is of apples and cinnamon. It is very smooth and I cannot believe its 8%. Like switching from a winter coat to a spring coat this dopple is a nice transition from the stouts and barley wines. Wheats here I come! Note to Larry at Bell's: Why such a limited release? Don't be bashful with something this nice!

A tad too sweet, says I. It's a shame, because everything else about this is highly awesome.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 Thanks to slikwily for this trade! Reddish brown. Rotten aple arom, but in a good way (really!). Some apples flavors come through in the flavor, as well. Malty sweet up front. a little alcohol in the finish. Very full bodied.

Caramel and berry nose. Cloudy brown, creamy head. Sweet caramel flavor with slightly artificial tasting berries. Surprisingly light body, hides strength well.

deep garnet color with small head and low carbonation. crisp, caramel, and alcoholic aroma. super-malty and very smooth body, finishes with a hint of bitterness and there's an alcoholic aftertaste. i enjoyed this one.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Appearance: bright, rich, reddish color, a tint not too far from auburn, but clings closer to a rubyish hue, as well/ Head is disappointingly small, brief, but stands as a toasted tan while it lasts. Aroma: big, fat, maltiness, earthy, and fruity, plenty of plum and grape in here, with a deep, woody feel, as well as distincitve toffee and caramel tones. Taste: floods the mouth with sweet, rich malty delights. Very slim hop content, just a barest buzz, but the flavor is so consumed by this warm, toasty, tastiness, there's not a thing that seems to be amiss. Body is full, to say the least, finish is long, slowly diminishing, sweet and substantial. The yeast is what really trumps this one, for it adds so much dimension to the mouthfeel. A damned fine doppelbock, one of my favorites, for sure.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Mahogany color, small head, great lacing. The aroma is thick and sweet caramel malt. Taste is malt, caramel with some fruitiness. Full bodied with a lingering malty finish.
