The aroma is a touch like hemp, caramel malt, citrus, pine and tropical fruit. The appearance is rich amber with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer.

Headbanger (3303) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2009
22oz bottle 2/9/08 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a ruby red/amber body with a nice big off white head. Aroma of caraml, roasted malt, sweetness, fruits, brown sugar, and a little hops. Taste of malt, sweetness, hops, caramel, and a bit of alcohol. This full bodied brew is very well balanced and quite tasty. Not being a big fan of this style I am quite impressed with this and their other brews. Good job.

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 9, 2009
22 ounce bottle purchased at the Davis food Co-Op. Aroma is a bit nutty and roasty with some metallic lager-like aromas. A bit of diacetyl is also there with a mild floral hoppiness. Nothing special. Transparent amber body with a medium off-yellow head that fades faster than it should. Fair legs and fair lacing. Start has a strange fruity flavor to it. Not really sure if this is esters or what. Becomes very roasted and burnt in the middle with a fuckload of tannins. Finishes astringently bitter with a lot of ethanol. Fusels late. This is an overpriced malt liquor.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Draft... Clear copper lager with a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. Good, tight, small, creamy retention. Chocolaty and vinous nose - lots of caramel and tawny port. Full-bodied with prickly carbonation. Sweet, caramelly, vinous, port-like flavor. Lengthy, sweet finish that succumbs to mild bitterness and winds up grassy and dry.

Ibrew2or3 (6888) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2009
On tap at the Oldsmar Tap House. Pours crystal clear amber with gold edges and semi firm, semi bumpy tan head. The aroma is only moderate in strength with dark fruity esters and faint malts. The taste begins with a rush of malt, cherry, prune, perfectly ripe plums and brown sugar sweetness. Its all sweet and comes together nicely. The sweetness wanes a bit by midway as floral hop flavor and bitterness make an appearance. It gets just a bit rough into the finish as the hints of the alcohol murmur to the fore. But it is plenty restrained considering it’s listed at 10% ABV. It ends less sweet than it started. It doesn’t really approach the style shown here as a Doppelbock. So I’m rating it with no regard style.

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2009
Tap @ OTH. Pours amber, beige color. Aroma is syrupy / licorice with malts. Taste malty, lots of syrupy/caramel tones, some fruits (grapefruit, possible dark sweet fruits, such as figs or apricot/orange giving a very sugary mouthfeel). Boozy, reminded me more of strong ale with barley tones. than a doppelbock. As a matter of fact it sounded more like a stronger version of their Freaktoberfest. At soem point, you seem to get more of the alcohol than anything else.

thegreenrooster (3209) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Pour is a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is heavy on the caramel with some candi sugar and molasses. Flavor is a nice roasted malt to start out but then comes the alcohol bomb. Why does this brewer insist on making every beer boozed out the wazoo? It has enough for a sample but there are better dopples out there.

PhillyBeer2112 (2525) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2009
Candied nose, sugary and toffee. Berry like fruitiness is pretty weird. Very very sweet, def cloying. A bit reminiscent of cherry liqueur. Woof. Pure amber color. Heavy, sticky palate. After a time it starts to get rather medicinal, like a thick sweet cough syrup. Not good.
