elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a slightly beige head. The head is rather thin, but a fair amount of lacing remains for the duration. Aroma is of caramel malts and toffee, rather sweet and distinctive. Upon first taste I was immediately hit by a strong alcohol flavor akin to bourbon, as well as a buttery toffee taste. As it settled down, the maltiness in the aroma reasserted itself. But here’s where it gets interesting: As the beer continued to warm, I also detected a hint of wood smoke and salt in the flavor--just a touch. This is a doppelbock to be sure, but for me, there was just a hint of a rauchbier profile. In the end, I have to say that the taste really was sweet and salty. Mouthfeel was watery, but the carbonation was stronger and sharper than usual for this style. In sum: A beer that holds it’s own with the best German variants of the style. Definitely worthy a try.

Dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma is a little sweet, vaguely of candy. Flavor is sweet with a touch of dark fruit and a bread-like body.

Bork (436) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Strong and sweet but a tad weak-bodied. Loaded with malts and quite alcoholic on the ending.

DocJitsu (1194) - Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Pours a rust copper color with an orangish-tan head. Plum and toffee on the nose. Moderately thick with adequate carbonation. Tastes approximate the nose except that the plum and toffee come through more prominently.

Bottle. Really loved this one. Deep, amber-copper color. Light head. Aroma was fruit cake, hints of molasses. Taste is dried fruit, fruit cake, malty sweet. Not bad.

Beautiful brown pour. Brown sugar and cherry aroma. Nice residual sweetness with bready undertones. Slightest of phenolic on the back end but great beer

Homer321 (2614) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2015
Nose is full of dried fruit and cherry. Some grape. Light sherry. Deep red to brown with a small off white head. Taste is slightly sweet with a moderately to highly watery mouthfeel. Not necessarily oxidized but just flat and thin in malt presence. A shame since it smells so good.

BunchABeer (30) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Pours clear and bubbly ruby-red with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, fruit and some hops. Taste is malty, fruity, a little sugary sweet with a light bitter finish. Medium bodied.

JonnyMadison (76) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle. Poured clear amber -- very attractive color. Aroma is mild but nice. Flavor is smooth but a little bland all-around. Leaves you a dry, sour aftertaste. Not bad and very drinkable, but missing something... Had it with some spicy hummus -- balanced well!!!

EtTuCthulhu (1353) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 10, 2015
The beer pours a clear brownish red with a medium off-white head, and the aroma blends roasted malts, caramel, lager yeast, slight hints of coffee, and slight hints of toffee. The taste is quite umami, slightly sweet, and a touch sour, and the aftertaste is malty, hearty, and slightly sweet without overpowering the tongue. The palate has a soft carbonation, thick texture, and a medium body.
