Huge brown head. Clear dark brown colour. Roasty aroma with caramel notes. Sweet-bitter taste with a discernible roasty, caramel-coffee palate. As good as a Bockbier can get.

Bottle from Dilo in Bochum. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with a steady head and smooth body. Aroma of malt, barley and caramel. Taste of malt, barley, dark bread, dried fruits, caramel, fruits. Intense finish.

BeerViking (3159) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2015
A red so dark it’s almost black, with a fine tan head. Aromas of toasted caramel and prunes, with a touch of smoke. Rich-bodied and seriously roasty, dry-bitterness that almost but not quite balances the sweetness. Burnt toffee and a hint of gravy. Liquorice, toffee and a herbal bitterness in the finish.

Paladares (57) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 14, 2015
Botella. Color rojizo muy oscuro. Aroma no muy destacado, predominando cereal tostado y pasas. En boca gran presencia de caramelo. Resulta muy cremosa con un final ligeramente amargo. Bastante equilibrada. El medio litro ha caído rápido...

Reddish brown clear beer with blonde head with lacing. Aroma has creamy toffeey and molassey sweetness with light roastiness and some nuts. Flavor is sweet with toffee, lightly roasted, herbal and nutty. Palate is medium full with quite heavy carbonation. Finish has mild bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet with toffee and molasses, as well as lightly roasted and herbally bitter. Quite OK for the style.

Marrom escura, espuma cremosa bege de média formação e duração. Aroma maltado achocolatado, ameixa, caramelo torrado, álcool perceptível. Paladar de dulçor médio, novamente ameixa, cereja escura, licoroso. Corpo oleoso, carbonatação leve ideal. Aftertaste duradouro, licoroso, alcoólico, adocicado, maltes torrados, framboesa, muito bom.

Aroma has a sweetness - hint of plum. Pours chocolate brown with a cream head. Teriffic lacing. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, slight chocolate. Creamy texture. This sets the bar for what I expect a dopplebock to be.

DavidAust (38) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2015
Great dopplebock. Sweet and malty without being too sweet. Really, really well balanced. Initial aroma is strongly banana as a wheat beer should. Two fingers of foam, which then suppresses the aroma. Plenty of flavours and mostly caramel but a variety of other tastes are present. Hard to find in Brisbane, but worth the hunt on a cold winter’s night. Perfect with any toffee flavoured desert like sticky date pudding.

trapped (1362) - New York, TURKEY - JUN 24, 2015
Draught @ Waterfront Ale House. Dark brown with small creamy beige head, caramel aroma, sweetish mocha taste, balanced full body, longish mocha finish. Very suave and sophisticated brew.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3054) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle from Taniguchi served in a dimpled mug. It pours a deep reddish brown with a malty sweet aroma giving me plum notes. Medium bodied with a great mild malt character that gives a bitter nutty caramel flavor. A satisfyingly smooth brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
