Cloudy brown with a decent sized tan head. Aroma is malty for sure with some fruittiness as well. Taste is smooth with chewy caramel and toffee. Yu can barely taste the hops. There is a nice alcohol warming effect in this awesdomer stuff. Finishes clean with just the right bit of sweetness.

Malty, mapley stout, raisin. Lighter on the hops than is typical for the brewer. Carmels. Lots of carmels. Slightly tangy. Big round feel. Lightly foamy on the edges. Finishes easy with some oxidized, slightly mineral earthiness. I like. More please!

Pours a deep, rich cherry-wood brown color, fairly cloudy, obviously unfiltered, probably bottle-conditioned. About a finger’s worth of rich beige head on top, very fine bubbles, lingers for most of the beer. Toffey aromas and very prevalent diacatyl—unmistakable butterscotch aroma. That is out of style for a dopplebock. Also getting some hints of alcohol. Rich, smooth, full bodied in the mouth. Fair amount of residual sweetness. Caramel, toffey, rummy. Heavy on the malt as you would expect, no real hop flavor, but enough bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Finished cleanly, leaving just a hint of malt. You can taste the alcohol, but overall it is balanced and drinkable.

cloudy brown with no head. except a thin ring. sweet malt aroma that is milky. silky cocoa flavor with a nice roast finish. nice pop from the carbonation that surprised me since it had no visible carbonation. this taste reminds me of the rolo brand candy, mmmmmcandy

Nuffield (3953) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Good, thick hazy brown body with a ring of head. Nice, rich malty aroma, suggestive of toffee--so very caramelly--and gingerbread. Big fizz on the palate, but it smooths out. Surprisingly dry. Good toasted and roasty quality, though in most ways not up to the level of the real gems in the style.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Bottle. Sweet nose like a syrupy barleywine with notes of fresh hay. Thick malt backbone, medium spice. Reminds me of maple syrup. Overall, I really enjoyed this.

Ungstrup (32903) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2005
An unclear brown beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet and quite hoppy. The flavor is sweet hoppy with notes of nuts and alcohol leading to a sweet soft end.

madsberg (11255) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2005
Bottled: Amber coloured. Unclear. Brown medium sized dense head. Flowers, chocolate and hops in the aroma. Flavour is smooth and is dominated by flowers and caramel. Is light bitter with a nice alcoholtouch in the end. Is rich and smooth. Nice one.

I keep trying doppelbocks in the stubborn hope that one day, I’ll get it. That day hasn’t happened yet. The few that I have liked OK have been criticized as not being true to the style. This one is unfortunately a fine example of the style. Murky dark brown, little head. Aroma of pure wort. Flavor matches, with the traditional cloying sweet malt flavor and vegetal hops. Just not my thing.
