Just not a well rounded doppelbock.

Hazy yeast filled copper. Thin off white head. Light but steady carbonation. Sour aroma, cooked veggies (brussels sprouts or something really rancid), light trace of malt. Crap! Fruity and sour and...I held this for a moment...contemplating spittage. Medium body, no caramel or molasses or...this is putrid and hopefully infected. My drain groaned as I poured the remainder out. Aftertaste of sour milk and cooked veggies. Yum!

Ruby orange color; Thin head, but had nice effervesence; The nose was oaky with caramel hints. Malty on the tongue. Alcohol not hidden at all. One trick pony with all that malt. Very little depth. Unexceptional. Thank you to TRAP.

TAR (2489) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2002
Pours a thick, crawling, frothy, and tan head. Traditional doppelbock aromas; winey, meaty, herbal, and some hops; pretty clean. Some funky flavors are going on here; spoiled prunes? I really can’t name any, other than molasses. Finishes rather bitter with a warming alcohol punch and an unattractive slightly sour twang. Bell needs to reduce the hops and beef up the body to make this a beer I would buy again.

Not the best Doppelbock on the planet, but worth the price for sure.

Flavor, flavor, flavor. This doppelbock has it. Pours out to a very nice dark ruby color, with a creamy, light brown foamy head. The head looked good enough to eat. Nice alcohol kick on the finish with enough hops to trip the sweetness of the malt back to earth. A very impressive beer.

A nice dark ruby body with a small head. Big toffee, caramel aroma. The flavor is all caramel and toffee malts. Really nice. The only drawback is perhaps a bit too much hops in the finish. Overall quite nice however.

Northernbrewer (147) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 27, 2001
A wonderful big beer from one of Americas best brewers. Malty and full bodied and even a 9 month old sample seemed to be just comming into its own. Full deep copper color.

Great caramel malt flavor. This beer really packs a punch. Perfectly filling, smooth mouthfeel. A little too much bitterness in the finish as it warms, but overall a great beer, even for $13 a 6 pack.
