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.

2014 bottle. Pours a hazy honey copper color with a thin off-white head. Big malt aroma with some caramel. Taste is malt with a little sweetness, some caramel and a surprising bit of bitterness. A hint of alcohol as well. A medium-full mouthfeel with good carbonation an a little sting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a brilliantly clear garnet tinged copper color with minimal white head that settles to a ring and leaves decent lacing. Aroma of sweet bread crust, toffee, light plum and some toastiness. Taste is very similar to smell with bread crust, toastiness, toffee, light plum, faint noble hops. Finishes mostly dry with a little maltiness and very slight alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is semi slick with a light body and medium/high carbonation. Nice, clean dopplebock that hits all the marks for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy copper pour with a thin white head. Aroma is big on bready and caramel malts, nice toasty notes a little dusty floral presence and toffee. Flavor is caramel, toffee, sweet bread crust, date nut bread, and just a hint of earthy, spicy hops. Medium body with a creamy, but syrupy feel throughout and a light, but blanketing carbonation. Really tasty stuff overall, definitely a beer better served in cooler weather, but still very much enjoyable.

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.

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.
