Bottle. Aroma of caramel, toffee. Golden appearance with thin white head. Taste is strong peppery alcohol, toffee and caramel. Boiled malt also comes through. Hops are just an after thought. This is a very drinkable beer with some very good base flavors. I donot agree with many on this site who claim that the body is too thick. Thinner body would not balance the alcohol as well.

TXBadger (117) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Nice dark gold, more amber colored than anything, not really blonde. On the nose there is a lot of malt, bread, and toffee. Taste is of caramel bread. Big malt bomb here.

On tap at Dexters Pub. Amber color with a white head. Good malty caramel aroma. Flavor is slightly fruity and heavy on the malt. A good molasses flavor. Full bodied ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer pours a red color with an off white head and it smells of caramel and malts. The taste is extremely sweet, loads of caramel and other malt flavors.

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.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2013
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.

ccex (893) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2013
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

Aurelius (3914) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2013
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.

GTAEgeek (1065) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2013
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.
