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 (2609) - 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.

Poured a deep red body with a quickly diminshing tan head. No lacing.
Smells sweet and malty. No hint of hops. I think the molasses is showing up too. A bit of alcohol too.
A bit thin compared to some other doppelbocks. The maltiness is there for a bock but not quite dopplebock to me. Alcohol is very apparent in flavor and cheek-warming effect. Sweetness in the end brings out the mellow hoppiness. Well balanced for what malt is there.
Smooth and creamy on the mouth without the super prickly mouthfeel of some bocks.

3/12/03: bottle. rather tranquil looking with no head or lacing. delightful red-brown color. sweet malty nose. very active in the mouth! evident amount of sugar, molasses and caramel with a noticeably sour aftertaste. once again, i dig the label.

Lighter brown color than expected. Little head. The molasses is rather evident and somewhat balanced by full body of this beer. The sweetness lingers a bit in the finish

Thick and sweet - filled with sugar and caramel like a liquied candy bar. Even as it warms and a tiny bit of hops dry out the finish, this is all about sweetness and that's just fine.
