COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Indra (2626) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAR 25, 2003
Richly sweet malty aroma, laden with dripping caramel, spice cake, breads and a faint yeasty fruitiness. Dark, murky mahogany color, bottle conditioned (yeast poured) and a mostly lasting, fine-beaded head. Flavor makes good on the promise of sweet, caramel maltiness and light spiciness. Lightly syrupy texture, full body. Faint earthy hop flavors on the finish. It's nice to have a bottle-conditioned doppel for a change.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew has a very nice malty aroma. It poured a nice light head that quickly disappeared. It has a very nice dark brown color. But, it's initial taste was different from other Doppelbocks I have tasted. It was full of a variety of tastes with cinnamon and caramel flavors. There was a hint of carbonation rising off my tongue as I drank it. Not as smooth as the German Doppelbocks which I prefer over this one.

Very malty. Very strong aftertaste that goes from caramel to sour. For more of the technical stuff, read below.
