COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Pours brown with a tan head. Nose is slightly sweet, with a hint of smokiness. Flavor runs toward the sweet end, with touches of chocolate and caramel. Its adherence to the doppelbock style is unfortunately betrayed by a touch of green apple flavor and an overly pronounced hop profile which is rather bitter and includes shades of freshly cut green grass.

This Dopplebock poured a medium head and there was no lacing on the side of my mug. It had a sweet aroma to it. Not much carbonation. It poured a dark amber color. It had a smooth taste, but I have had better Dopplebocks in my taste testings.

Beautiful amber color woth orange glints and a huge orange head. Bocky aroma, really malty, caramle, sticky cake, cotton candy, a light floral/fruity aroma that is probably partially coming from the hops. Sweet with just a light roast and light bitterness on the finish. ingering cotton candy. Smooth and quite thick feeling. A good bock.

tkaufman (129) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2003
This poured very thick and a nice dark garnet color with a minimal head. Aroma was very subtle, but a little caramel and malt poked through. Flavor was rather unimpressive though when compared to other dopplebocks. Very little in the way of the definitive caramel malt flavors that you expect from a quality dopplebock. Finished slightly dry. Not a bad brew, but just not a great dopplebock.

Bell's rarely dissapoints me, and this is no exception. Thick tan head and deep amber color. Smells slightly fruity and caramely. The 8% is well disguised. Mild coffee/chocolate flavor, slightly bitter finish, evident maltiness. It has basically all of the good aspects of a Bell's stout without the sometimes overwhelming thick body. I would recommend this one to anybody.

reddish brown, has a thick tongue feel and a bit of maltiness. OK, but not an overly impressive doppelbock

Dark ruby color. Very sweet malty nose and flavor. Alcohol is evident. Average, and missing a big, bold profile like Celebrator. Too sweet.

Malty, Carmely, Cherries with smooth finish and appropriate alcohol taste undertones... nicely done.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 A tobacco juice severity contributes to a sweet toffee’s cleanliness...Cherries that grow in a bed of ashes reveal black pepper when crushed...A wailing dark rum burn thins out after a few months’ aging...

This beer poured a very dark amber color and formed a light tan foamy head that left trace lace. An aroma of malt and caramel. A flavor of malt, caramel and some other sweetness, not sure how to place it though. A touch astrigent in the finish. As doppels go, it's a fair interpretation, but is not going to knock you off normally getting the German ones that we all rave about.
