UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 Bottle 500 ml
Appearance: Pours as brown cherry brew with small rocky white top.3-
Nose :Front welcomes you with brown sugar and plum sauce, sweet roasted grainy malts , light hop side with sweet fruity finish.6+
Flavor/Palate : Thin bodied for its strength. Simple plain sweet malts with light hint of dark rye. Weak impressions of what might have be if…sadly its not. Washed off on substance and character average dunkel bock.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Pours a dark cherry brown color with a small tan head. Not much retention and some soapy areas remain on top as well as a nice thick ring. Sugar sweet aroma. Flavor is muddled. Fruity esters, metal, toffee, and a surprising amount of hop dominate the flavor. The problem is that these don’t work well together and an unfortunate aftertaste remains. Is there bitter tomato in there? Flavor became more fruity as it warmed.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Odd green bottle with an odd 40-ish like twist off metal cap. Big bubbled head holds up momentarily. Flavor is biscuity and alcoholic with toast and brown sugar. Theres some aluminum itn, which if it wasn’t there, would make this somewhat drinkable. The body is beautiful and the malty, nuttiness is good. Too bad.

This one smells and tastes remarkably like their dunkel. Very dark copper color with minimal head. Bread dough aroma. Palate is very thin but there is a bit of dark fruit in there. I am really surprised there is 7.5 alcohol percent. That is well hidden. Overall this is the most disappointing doppelbock I have had.

bitbucket (2158) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2008
500ml green bottle, with the type of screwtop normally found on wine bottles. The frosty rings on the outside of the bottle says this one has been re-used multiple times, which is not what you normally see in massively consumerist the US of A. Pours clear dark amber with a hugely fluffy off-white head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, roasty malt and noble hops. Creamy , sticky, medium body and light carbonation. Sweet, full taste of nuts, fruit, pumpernickel. A little earthiness and just a dash of bitterness in the finish. I’d be OK with a little more hops in this one, but otherwise a tasty beer.

Bottle, courtesy of Argo0. Pours clear dark bronze with a white head. Aroma of smoke and caramel toastiness. Flavor starts off with deep caramel, bread, then sweet cola, light noble hop character. Some alcohol kick. Too sweet for my tastes. I found the texture to be full/round with moderate carbonation.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2008
500ml screwtop bottle shared by argo0. Looks like balsamic vinegar. Has a clear cola colored brown body with little head. Sweet cola, maple malt and some sharp oxidized cardboard flavors, some peppermint and grapefuit flavors, but overall not very good. Resembled cough syrup at times.
