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

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.

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

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.

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.

From the Kalamazoo's tasting at the brickskeller: An intresting doppelbock. I can't say i enjoyed it (which was rare at my table) but i need more then dark malt flavor.

A great doppelbock. A great balance of hops and malt with that alcohol presence that seems a trait of bocks. It only got better as it warmed.

(bottled). Malty caramel or toffee nose. Attractive reddish brown, nearly brilliantly clear. Moderately full bodied beer leads with vinuous dark toasty malt leading to a mildly astringent bitter follow-through that I would not describe as exactly smooth. Lingering peppery alcohol with nice warming effect.

Draught at Bell's Sept. 27th 2003... Said 9% qat the bar. Dark sugary amber, orangy head. Sweet palate of syrup. Very malty with a honey profile. Reminds me more of a malt liqour. Decent but not alot of it.
