2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub.
pours clear copper-brown with a good head.
Good but not exceptional aroma. Moderate strength.
The flavor is a bit bolder and has a nice, lasting roasted grain finish and aftertaste. Enough hops to add flavor in addition to keeping he bitter/sweet balance near even.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
3oz taster on tap at Elevator. Very dark brown color. Thin off-white khaki head. Leaves good, full, more thicker lace. Awesome bigger more roasty coffee, slightly dark fruity aroma. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of chewy, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light to moderate sweet. Very mild light bite. Not bothersome at all. Good dark chocolate, dark fruit, light spice notes. Awesome doppelbock.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery in a pint glass. Pours a deep brown with an off-white head. Nice aroma of roasted dark malts, roasted nuts, caramel, leather, and peat. Taste similar in nature but with a little chocolate added into the mix. I’d like this one with just a little aging I think better. Medium body and carbonation. Malty, roasted finish. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz Draught from brewpub. Appearance is dark brown color with light, dark beige head. Aroma is relatively weak with caramel and malted grains. Taste is dominated by the caramel, dark malted grains, and some spicy hops. Probably a bit too bitter for the style. Palate is full bodied, moderately smooth texture, average carbonation, semi-dry finish. It's an okay beer that's appropriate to the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Elevator Brewing Co, Columbus OH, March 2010. No ABV stated. The pick of the dozen Elevator beers I tried at this sitting (and I’m not usually a big Doppelbock fan). Very dark red/brown colour. Thin beige head. Excellent condition. Light chocolate aroma. Much more on the palate. Also roast coffee and lots of licorice. Had an almost Baltic Porter feel. Avoids the fat malt and soy sauce feel that I find in many Doppelbocks and don’t enjoy too much. Not too sticky either. Most enjoyable and satisfying.
