COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blazing rich beer, this is a doppelbock based on an Oktoberfest personality. Warm and intriguing, the perfect "Brandy Snifter" beer. Available September and October.

It’s not like any doppelbock I’ve had. Pretty tasty--slightly fruity. It does have a slight off note, however.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 Pours a clear copper topped by a small off white head. Aroma is medium sweet with caramel, cherry, bread and light earth. Flavor is caramel, raisin and some cherry. Medium body, sticky texture. A very aromatic Dopple.

Pours the kinda brilliant copper color you see in the leaves at autumn. Little head disappears quickly.Big sweet malty nose.Lush full palate slides across the tongue. Malty sweetness is just rolling around the mouth. Hinting at something like maple syrup? This is delicious and the perfect beer for fall in my opinion. Thanks to maxpower for this one!

Whoa goodness. How smooth can this be?! A wonderful interpretation of a doppelbok. A very floral aroma with a massive amount of malts. I think this beer would be enjoyed by even the newest of beer drinkers.

clear reddish/brownish color, with very minimal carbonation and a slight head quickly dissipating to a thin lens. aroma is pretty malty with some bready, moderately sweet flavors. somewhere in the aroma, i detect a little hint of magic marker..ha.not that i ever sniff those.

Indra (2571) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 26, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2003 Spicy, caramelized malt aroma. Fiery red-orange color with a rapidly diminishing head and some faint streams of effervescence. Flavor revolves around the sweet caramel malt, but has some fruitiness, mainly red apple, and a lightly toasty, not quite full-on roastiness. A light bitterness follows the malt through to the finish, which is lip-smackingly sweet. Body is medium, palate is actually a bit thinner than some doppels and is very smooth. Good, definitely.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 20, 2002
On tap at the Map Room, Chicago, 10/19/02. Third great beer in a row, though hard to top Dreadnaught and Bells 5000. Still, this is a very respectable earthy, intensely flavorful doppel. Medium body, little head, dark amber, slightly smoky, piney, tarry aroma with strong caramel backbone to the body and a slight hop kick on the end. Very sweet overall, but not disgustingly so. Notes would be more detailed if this hadn’t been my 3rd 9% beer in a row on an empty stomach; amazed I could stand!
