3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice dark caramel to garnet in color with a head that wears a little too quickly. A little bitter for a doppelbock (for my taste), this German brew nonetheless has a pleasant and full malty character that lingers on the palate.

Pours a dark ice tea color into a pilsner glass with a 2 finger head than lingers quite a bit. Interesting nose of root beer and sweet malts. Taste has some sweetness/cola up front with some mlt but has a really strong alcohol finish that I didn't much enjoy. So-so.

A - Pours a ruby dark brown. 2 finger off-white head.
S - Old bread with a sweet and sour malt. Burnt toffee. Dark cherries. Musty grain. Very earthy overall.
T - Toffee malt, pumpernickel crust. Sour grain adds an interesting twist. Raisins, toasted walnuts. Complex malt. It takes on completely different characteristics with varying temperatures. Muted red apple, pear and green grass
This is a very mysterious and complex Dopplebock. I can smell and taste the traveling miles in this beer. I canít even begin to unravel the flavors. I think it makes for a very interesting take on the Dopplebock style. Donít pass this up. Itís a trip.

500ml bottle [as "Doppelbock", thanx Roman]. Clear deep reddish glowing brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Dark malty aroma with a cautious caramel note, hoppy overtones. Taste is moderately dry dark malty. Expressionless, slightly boring Doppelbock.

(old notes) Bottled as Bischoff Premium Doppelbock in FL. Clear brown pour with a large, lasting white head. A lot of roasted malts, burnt sugar, dried fruit in the aroma. Taste is sweet up front, malty, a little alcohol kick at the end. Very drinkable.

Deep amber pour with a light tan head. Aroma is toasted maltiness and lots of sugary sweetness. Flavor is melanoidin sugars, toffee, and toast. Medium light bodied and sweet throughout. Blah, not for me.

12oz bottle - pours dark amber with a finger of off white head and decent lacing. Nose is caramel, pilsner hops and dough. Flavor adds cereal. Taste is sweet and a little bitter. Smoky or roasted aftertaste. Thin body. Sticky mouthfeel. Now I know why it was so cheap, especially for an import.
