On tap at the Moerlein Brewhouse. Pours a clear medium amber with next to no head. Caramel malt aroma. Sweet caramel malt taste along with nuttiness, butteriness and a slightly tart bitterness. Good effort.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2010 12 oz. bottle from beer club- Pours deep amber with a collar of foam, aroma is sweet malt and brown sugar. The flavor is mellow and sweet malt with little to no bitterness or hops, but Dopplebocks are not meant to, this is a very drinkable beer and is probably the best of the March 2010 beer club.

Bottle thanks to jsquire. Poured a cloudy deep brown color with a moderate beige head that diminished to a ring. Aroma of brown sugar, biscuits, and light fruit. Sweet brown sugar and caramel entry leads into a smooth finish with fruity undertones, namely apple, and possibly a hint of plum. Pretty creamy and smooth. Simple, but a nice doppelbock that is easy to drink. Thanks Jeff.

Bottle. Aroma bready and caramel. Poured a dark brown. Flavor was toasted malts and grassy hops. Palate was sticky and sweet. Overall, okay just not one I’d seek out again.

Not a bad Dopple Bock (nowhere near the level of Celabrator or Paulaner). Nice aroma of toasted chocolate and caramel malts.

After a miserable experience with their dunkel, I was a little apprehensive about this beer. I do enjoy a nice doppelbock and Celebrator has set the standards very high for me. The beer pours out a dark brown color, deep ruby red when held to a light. A one-finger thick off-white head floats atop the beer but quickly melts away leaveing little evidence there was a head in the first place. Aroma is roasted malts and light caramel. Nothing overly sweet or roasted. Flavor is the same with a little more sweetness showing on the palate, balanced out nicely with the acrid roast. A nice beer, nothing complex. Smooth finish, tasty. Recommended!
