Tessic (954) - Brantford, Ontario, - OCT 6, 2012
This one poured a very dark amber colour with a big, beautiful, tan coloured head. To the nose there are scents of red wine, ripe fruit, faint malt vineger and roasted malts. First sip was medium sweet and full flavoured with flavours of toffee and rich caramel with a little smoke and roasted malt. Finish is roasty and sweet with the burnt caramel flavours lingering.

UXO (869) - CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
Pours clear brown with amber-brown highlights, one finger of dense light tan head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is dark roasty malt, cocoa and chocolate, mildly boozy fruit, bourbon tones. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Medium bodied, low carbonation, slightly sticky lingering bitter finish. (4/5) A solid dopple. The bourbon booziness is a little aggressive, but not unpleasant. I’d like a heavier body and thicker texture, though. (16/20)

pootzboy (1652) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle: pours a deep brown lager in the glass, ruby highlights, rich mocha cap. Aroma is a tad understated but indicative of a quality dunkler bock – bready, lightly sweet, coco, roasty, earthy from non filtering. Taste has a flood of Munich chocolate malts in front, either Hallertau or spalters balance it well. A little complexity begins just before the long drying roasty finish. A fairly good attempt at a bock, but more complexity and the fig-dark dried fruit tastes are missing = perhaps the primary fermenting was too cool. Anyway these are small issues and overall this is a quite drinkable doppelbock........................Update : this is the third year I have sampled and cellared this doppelbock and this latest release is as good as any German Micro offering so I adjusted my rating to a 4/5

HopsandBolts (202) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
650 ml bottle from the LBCO.

Appearance: Pours a deep brownish black with a finger or so of tan head with moderate retention and just a bit a lacing.

Aroma: Big aromas of milk chocolate, malted milk, toasted malt.

Flavours: Chocolate, dark malt, molasses, hint of bourbon.

Mouthfeel: Rich and creamy.

Overall: Love this one. The aromas and flavours are very pronounced and sweetness just comes right through.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle, Embrun LCBO. Very dark brown, wisp of a head. Sweet, molasses, caramel aroma, some dark fruit as well. Taste is good - rich, chewy malt, more caramel sweetness and a very long sweet linger. Hints of roast and dark fruit. Body is a just a tad thin and watery at times and it is all pretty straight forward - not a bad thing at all. A solid example of the style and one I would have again.

czar (5843) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
pours murky light brown leaving a small light beige rind, no lacing per say. JD’s bananas, bubblegum, overly woodsy vanilla, sweet caramel, sweet prune bread, some other sweet red fruits underneath - miscellaneous, brown sugar and molasses, tannins, grassy, tea leaves. light carbonation, light to medium body - oily and a bit sticky, semi-sweet grassy-woody-tannic finish. obviously too bourbony. still drinkable next to a bonfire.

DiscerninDrunk (48) - - SEP 9, 2014
Pours deep reddish brown, medium head that has very little retention. Smells of raisin, prune, maybe a dark honey coffee, kinda like root beer overall. Starts with hazelnut cruelly before kicking into molasses and finishing with a rich coffee with moderate alcohol warmth.

Apparence: D?une couleur brun foncé opaque, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse couleur caramel d?une durée moyenne. Effervescence difficile à évaluer, mais semble moyennement présente.Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt caramélisé très franches ainsi que des fruits sec. Saveurs: Au goût, c?est ample en bouche avec une saveur de caramel, de boisé et de chaleur d?alcool. Longueur moyenne malheureusement. Aucune effervescence, aucune amertume.Fiche technique Style: DoppelbockFormat: 650 mlTaux d?alcool: 8,6% Température: 8°C - 10°C

Helsdon (301) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a very dark opaque brown, with next to no head that goes by the wayside but quick. Sweet roasted malts with flavours of vanilla in the nose. Big taste of carmel, toast, vanilla, oak, that has a really nice balance. Bocks and doppels can have a sweetness that I find cloying, and oak can be easily overdone, this finds a good balance between the two that works really well. Nice!
