[tap at EBF 2008] Weak hoppy aroma with white cranberry and peach notes. Murky reddish brown with a nice lacy head. Peaty and musty flavour with grain and spicy melanoidins. Some bitter walnut and notes of raisin, white grape, and chocolate. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a very slightly clean finish.

Tap @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours red-brown with a thin head that only stays for a second. Aroma is pleasantly malty, light caramel, yeast and a fine, light hoppy streak. Low carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is somewhat dry, weakly vinious with some caramel notes. Pretty dry finish with okay hoppiness. Not spectacular.

Hazy reddish-brown. Chocolate, nuts, toast and some brown sugar on the nose. Smooth, molassesy palate. Light orange and lime. Complex, interesting brew.

At Vero. Cloudy, mahogany brown. Sweet aroma like chickoo or mamey. Smooth, soft carbonation. Clean, smooth, woody. Interesting flavors. Lots of dark tropical fruits and roasting wood. Well-structured, firm, no-nonsense Dutch solidity.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Courtesy hopscotch. The body is a cloudy caramel brown color. A small, frothy, cream colored head settles slowly, leaving spotty lacing behind on the glass. Aromas include caramel, dark fruits, dark spices, and some lactic cream. Flavors show dry, woody caramel, cola, molasses, dark fruits, and vanilla. There’s also a creamy element, which turns out to be a bit of a saving grace, keeping this from being a run of the mill brew. The palate is medium bodied and overly carbonated, feeling too fizzy in the mouth. Decent at best, and not a very god interpretation of Doppelbock, in my opinion.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Courtesy Hopscotch. Pours a dark caramel brown, with a small light tan head. Smells of sweet dark fruits, caramel malt, and not a whole lot else. The flavor is pretty mild actually, mostly more of that malt and fruit flavor combined. Maybe got a touch of some hop bitterness in the finish, and a bit of wood, but thats about it. Nothing overly complex here, but certainly drinkable.
