PorterPounder (7412) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2004
Sweet, malty aroma, reminiscint of dates, raisins and cherries. Dark orange to light brown murky appearance. Thin off-white head. Flavor has elements of chocolate, baked brown bread and dates, with just a wee bit of alcohol seeping through. Thick, chewy, mouthfeel. Overall, an excellent dopplebock.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUL 13, 2004
What a doppelbock! Pours a dark brown-red rust color with a nice firm head. Aroma is Malt/spice. Taste is full-body malty and choclatey. The alcohol doenst come through as much as one would think. Finishes with a yeasty malty ending. Iíve never used so many Ys in a rating. Y?

muzzlehatch (4830) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2004
12 oz bottle, at Hopleaf, Chicago. Deep bronze, clear, no head. Simple light caramel aroma; nothing much besides molasses on the nose. Syrupy, with hints of charcoal in the finish. Rather poor for a doppelbock and a disappointment from Bells.

aracauna (3511) - Georgia, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Deep red-colored body with a yellow cornmeal head. The medium-sized head forms easily and then fades. The aroma is malty with a slight pepperines. The sweet, malty flavor is warm and closing in on thick, but itís not a big flavor. Very smooth. Thereís a slight graininess in the flavor. The alcohol shows through a bit in the finish.

Pretty good, especially for a high alcohol content micro-beer. So often this style suffers from overly winey or harsh flavors at the expense of a completeness. This beer is well balance and malty with a refreshing spice. The clarity is poor and the head retention is marginal, but the hints of toffee and caramel make up for what is lacking in presentation. The aroma is mild with a buttery scent. The aftertaste lingers a bit strange on the tongue, but overall it is quite good.

Dark Color with no head. Not very distinct. Tasted watered down. Perhaps a bad bottle....need to try again.

heemer77 (5295) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Bottle. Pours with a very dark borwn body and a light yellow colored thin head. The aroma is maple, honey and sweetened oatmeal. The taste is brown sugar with lots of malts. The finish is like oak and a good bourbon. I also get an aftertaste like I ate a bar of chocolate, bit no real chocolate flavors??!! This is slightly more hoppy than most other dopplebocks I have had. Different.
