UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 Chocolate brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is malty of course, somewhat bold, smokey with notes of cigar and tobacco. The taste seemed a tad too bold for me, not really clean, too packed with an earthy sweet character I didn't quite enjoy, especially in the aftertaste. Palate is flawless though, oatmeal stout round and smooth.

Copper orangey body w/ a great lasting cap of frothy tan foam. Very malty w/ a toasty malt, light roasty, and raisiny aroma with just a hint of alcohol. Very malty flavor to start as well. Very well balanced with a sweet malty finish as any good dopple is! Raisiny flavor with hints of roastiness and a nice deep caramel sweetness. Finish is very malty and clean, no hops whatsoever in this one! Very full bodied w/ a light carbonation and a warming alcohol, overall very smooth. Another great creation by Kalamazoo brewing, although this still falls behind Expedition Stout IMHO.

Very complex flavor seems a bit to sweet for me but it is still a must try.

Poured a coppery-carmel translucent color. The aroma was soft and mossy. The brew left a some residue-y feeling in the mouth. Light carbonation. Somewhat sweet in flavor.

Poured a translusent brown. Aroma of sweet malt with a slightly astringent quality. Taste of dark fruit, cinnamon, and sweet malt. Medium body.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2003 A great Doppelbock. I'm surprised it's only 3.5. Excellent malt flavor, well balanced and not overly sweet.

I really enjoyed this Bell's offering. Reddish brown in color - off white head. Hugely fruity. Pears. Juicy fruit gum. Toasted marhsmallows. Lots of doughy, oaty, malt characteristics. Nicely sweet.

Wow. This is everything doppelbock should be. Sweet without being syrupy and powerful without overdone. Perfect amounts of fruitiness, which I find to be a terribly important quality in a doppelbock. This has a tremendous amount of class.

Mmmm, nice. Hazy, dark red-brown. Interesting nose, smells like spiced Christmas pears (assuming people do actually spice pears for Christmas, it'd smell like this). Initial flavor is of maple syrup and molasses. Slightly biscuity and toasty, a bit of fruitiness, but the predominant flavor is dark, sweet malts. Nice palate, sticky enough to coat the inside of the mouth nicely. Good stuff.
