SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2004
Hazy ruby in colour with medium frothy rich tan/brown head. Nose is hard with alcohol with underlying malty nose. The taste is initially malty and sweet then moves to like a wheaty or maybe toffie with alcohol ish flavour. So good and interesting not as sweet as I like but still good dopplebock.

better than ayinger? definitely fresher for those of us here. one of the best i've had. not too dark, or cloyingly sweet. almost a food like satisfaction from drinking it though. definitely try to buy a few if you find them

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - APR 8, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2008 12 oz bottle - Pours a crystal clear medium amber color with small light tan head. Aroma is full of chewy malts, cherries, light caramel, bit of caramel. Flavor has a ton of lightly kilned malts, fair amount of toasted caramel, bit of sulfur, with a fairly sweet, almost cloying finish.

Aubrey (3488) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2004
Yellowish-tan head above a murky brown. Sweet, brown sugar and molasses malts accented by a smoky-like hop bitterness. Hints of mild spices and sugar-coated raisins. Sugar-water sweetness creeps up here and there; bitterness attempts to squelch it, but never really succeeds (overall, a little too sweet for me). Nice flavors though. Kept me interested all the way down the glass.

Slightly cloudy, reddish brown in color. Mild malt aroma. Very malty flavor, lots of fruity sweetness including prunes and raisins. Bubbly Bells flavor. The alcohol is well masked. A decent dopplebock. Thanks to Silphium!

Gorgeous amber brown color with reddish tones. Tan head forms, but fades fast, most likely due to the alcohol. Many doppelbocks I've had do that. Aroma is very malty, as it should be. Taste is almost all malt. There are some nice fruity notes in the middle and end, raisins, prunes and figs. Molasses notes as well. A quick, faint touch of hops comes and goes very quickly, you almost don't notice it. Finish is malty. The 8% alcohol is hidden well, but it is slightly noticeable. I live not far from a German restaurant that serves Optimator and Celebrator on tap, and I would put this beer next to them any time.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Beer pours murky reddish brown with a rather smallish off white head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is rather restrained being mostly sweet malt. Flavor is decent and basically all malt. The big problem with this beer in this style is that everyone know that dopplebocks are supposed to taste like Celebrator. This is not even close. Even though I am a big Bells fan.

badgerben (4608) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2004
It has a very dark amber color with little head. I must have had a bad bottle. It tasted of some yeast and some malt, but overall was just a watered down version of what a real doppelbock should be. I was horribly disappointed, but will try it again in the hopes of a turn around.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2004
This one pours an amber/brown color with a decent head and doesn't leave much lacing on the glass. The aroma is sweet and caramelly and sort of reminds me of cough syrup. The flavor is sweet with the same caramel feel that the aroma had. Pretty smooth and easy to drink. Not a bad beer.
