3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. 2011 vintage. Pours a clear, very very dark gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma is quite sweet. Lots of caramel and toffee. Taste is heavily sweet and very light bitter. Caramel and toffee with just a hint of herbal hops. Medium bodied with a thick, sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Surprisingly, time has been very good to this beer. Iíll have to go back and see if there are any more of these 2011s left.

Amazing Platinum Blonde Dopplebock! I have had the privilege to taste beers from around the world from Munich to Prague to Bangkok. This is truly one of the beers you must try before you die.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden/orange pour. Aroma of toffee, bread, roast, ripe fruit and a hint of soy. Flavor hits most of the same notes. Very nice malty sweetness. Good brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle pours a clear dark orange color with vanishing off-white head but good lacing. Aroma is mostly bread dough, caramel and roasted malts with touches of lemon, grass, and hops in the finish. Taste is initially sweet with a bit of alcohol burn in the otherwise dry finish. Medium body with average carbonation. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky. Not bad, but I expected a better doppelbock from Capital

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Inviting malty aroma with a little sting underneath it. Clear, intense gold; OK label and cap; standard US longneck. Sweetish, pretty smooth but with a slight bocky-metallic break, woody-straw tones towards the finish. Good carbo, medium body. Not bad, and one of my least favorite styles, but still a little disappointing from Capital. New Leaf Market.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Hazy, dark orange color with no head. The aroma is toffee, oak, and syrup. Very sweet flavor, with faint hop bitterness in the finish. Heavy body, sticky, grainy, with some fine carbonation. Overall, this is a sticky, sweet, desert-like beer. Unabashedly malty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle via trade with madbeerbaron. It pours a clear copper color with a small and short lived white head. The nose smells faintly of fresh malt and dough. The flavor highlights the malt with a little caramel and a very slight toasted note. Medium to full bodied, itís a bit flabby on the tongue. Still, itís a decent dopple.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Labeled as 7.8%
Pours murky orange with a minimal off-white head.
Slightly fruity aroma, caramel.
Flavour is tangy caramel malt, slightly overripe fruit...
Not too bad, but rather flat-bodied.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Cardboard and lemon malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Corn syrup, paper and barley malt flavor. Okay but apparently an old bottle.
