Gorgeous, firey deep, tawny reddish copper color, very solid clouded body, alas, only a waffer thin tan skim of a head was produced and some spots of lace stick. Aroma is lighter then expected from the usual Bell's array with some softer tones of dark fruits with some raisin, fig, and plum, a very slight dry breadiness and toasted molasses touch sit underneath. Taste is loose and chewy with some orangey oils and fat but dulled plum, raisin, and fig with some softer/lighter toffeeness with a slight touch of chocolate dryness like a cookie or bread and just a tiny nudge of nutmeg spice and vaniila. I'll admit the feel seems a bit thin in body, but somehow it still maintains one very silky, buttery smooth character from end to end, that I like. Plus it helps make it quite drinkable. This dopplebock reminds of a calmer Belgian dark without alot of the sharp yeast tones and carbonation that some Belgians might carry, and that sits fine with me. This was gone in no time. Drink-yum-able!

Mine had way too much cherry flavor. Just about the most gorgeous red color when held up to light.

Almost year old bottle. Slightly hazy,mahogany. Fizzy,tan head,leaves a lasting patch. Gooey caramel,chocolate,biscuit,malts. Some floral hops as well. Farily creamy body,quite fizzy. Starts fruity,followed with tons of chewey,sweet,malt. Finish is malty as well,quite hoppy,slightly smokey. Actually,a fairly enjoyable Doppel,but I prefer the cleaner,German versions.

Deep caramel color with medium-sized, creamy, off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Slightly hot aroma of alcohol and malt. Slightly smoky, reminds me somewhat of a clean, malty Scottish Ale. Initial bitterness in the flavor leading to a sweet maltiness. A bit more bitterness than I'd like in this style but not bad. Some caramel flavors--tastes as though the wort was carmelized in the kettle. Fairly clean. Medium-to-full bodied. Not my favorite Doppelbock, but not bad.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 Chocolate brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is malty of course, somewhat bold, smokey with notes of cigar and tobacco. The taste seemed a tad too bold for me, not really clean, too packed with an earthy sweet character I didn't quite enjoy, especially in the aftertaste. Palate is flawless though, oatmeal stout round and smooth.

Copper orangey body w/ a great lasting cap of frothy tan foam. Very malty w/ a toasty malt, light roasty, and raisiny aroma with just a hint of alcohol. Very malty flavor to start as well. Very well balanced with a sweet malty finish as any good dopple is! Raisiny flavor with hints of roastiness and a nice deep caramel sweetness. Finish is very malty and clean, no hops whatsoever in this one! Very full bodied w/ a light carbonation and a warming alcohol, overall very smooth. Another great creation by Kalamazoo brewing, although this still falls behind Expedition Stout IMHO.
