ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Pours a clear medium brown with an off-white head that dissipates quickly. Faint aroma of caramel and nuts. Flavor of dark fruit and nuts, but I get a ton of metallic flavor from this as well. I was not a fan of this one.

ABUSEDGOAT (2413) - California, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Clear mahogany, moderate head with decent lacing and retention. Aroma is caramel, bread, toast with some acidity. Medium bodied with a sweet lightly acidic finish. Alcohol is there if you search but is hidden well.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2007 This is a good doppelbock. It is my favorite beer to sit in front of the fireplace on a cold German day. Drinking this beer while it is snowing outside is one lifes great pleasures. The high alcohol content helps warm me fron the inside.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Pours a dark brownish amber color w/ a medium sized, semi creamy froth. Good hangtime and the lacing is full and thick. Aromas of sweet, mildly roasted caramel. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers. The texture turns creamy on the palate. Nice ! Mildly roasted and mildly sweet caramel malts open up to a defined black cherry character. Nuances of cake bread, chocolate, and red licorice w/ a mild leathering. The finish is long w/ black cherry and a mild peachpit style bittering component. Not complex by any means but the texture itself is worth a try.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Has a mildly skunked aroma followed by some sweet caramel accented malt notes. The body is a chestnut brown and holds a thumb thick, lasting tan head. Fore is nutty (almost like peanut skins) and caramel accented with some very grassy hop notes. I think this could be a lot fresher tasting, but the beer is new to Florida. Not a doppelbock to seek out.

ekstedt (5484) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2007
Bottle. Deep clear copper, medium creamy beige head. Aroma has roasted, nutty malts, with some wooden notes, but lacks complexity. Medium to thick bodied and very smooth. Nice balance between malt sweetness and a dry bitterness, no alcohol present.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2006
On tap. Pours a brownish amber with an off-white head. Caramel malts stand out with slight roasts in the background and hints of brown sugar. Finishes slightly bitter and perhaps a bit too sweet.

kseecs16 (1207) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Dark brown with a reddish hue. Head is minimal, floating on top. Pretty subdued aroma, mostly due to being served a bit too cold. Malt obvious some sweet sugary notes. Fairly sweet, no dominating flavors, a touch of bitterness. Body was a little light. A below average doppelbock.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2006
Dark brown/black, clear, with next to no head. Aroma is light, sweet, with a touch of caramel. Flavor is fairly sweet, with some roasted coffee and caramel notes, and a very solid, bitter, grassy dose of noble hops. A nice Kristkindlmarkt surprise.
