bitbucket (2159) - 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 (8032) - 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.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 23, 2008
50cL screwtop bottle, courtesy argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a clear cola color; thin off-white head. A bit of skunk, smoke, and sugar in the aroma; not much. Medium mouthfeel showing sugar, caramel, and roasted malts; I’m really not getting a whole lot out of this beer; smoke and roasted character, but a singular expression. Medium, sticky sugar and caramel in the finish.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Great look, pouring (from the bottle) a reddish mahogany body topped with a creamy beige head. The aroma’s almost too sweet for me, dark caramel and molasses with a light roast touch. The flavor, too, is tight on the line so far as how sweet a doppelbock should get, but a very light earthiness manages to keep it in check. Okay.

Palidor19 (2948) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Its got a real sense of what a good bock should taste like. Rich malts with strong caramel flavors. Its hops is on the back burner. but everything else is outstanding.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle from Old Heidelberg in Bethel, CT. Poured a dark mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma of some toffee, grape, fig, and a bit of alcohol. Taste is surprisingly dry, especially considering the comparably mild alcohol content. Flavors of some dark fruits and a bit of molasses are present, making it lightly sweet and pretty nice to drink. Finishes again with a bit of dryness. Did not knock my socks off, but was agreeable and pleasant to drink.
