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.

Though I’m not most familiar with doppelbock characteristics I must say thus is a fine, satisfying brew. Pleasant flavor, cloudy appearance...sweet and not bitter at all.

Pours a chestnut with a fizzy, short-lived head and some floating yeasties. Aroma isn't very strong but has some toasty malty notes. Taste is burnt toast, dark fruit. Palate is very silky. A good doppelbock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice deep golden brown color. Aromas of rich dark malts, chocolate, fruit, and a hint of smoke. Flavor is rich with a lot of flavors to be found, chocolate, dark fruit, smoke, coffee, and I swear a hint of licorice.

Strong and sweet but a tad weak-bodied. Loaded with malts and quite alcoholic on the ending.

DocJitsu (1484) - Pensacola, 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. Pours clear caramel with fairly minimal head. Aroma is sugary sweet with cherry and dark fruit. Sweet taste - brown sugar and dark fruit. Medium body, soft carbo. Very drinkable.

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.
