bhensonb (11532) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bomber from the Utah State store on Harris in Salt Lake City. Pours dark copper with very little head. Rich caramel/treacle aroma. Not a lot of hop smell. Med + body. Flavor is rich caramel, with a little treacle. It’s certainly not dry. The hop is just enough for some flavor and balance. It’s very nice.

adnielsen (9478) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a fairly cloudy, dark brown appearance with a small, bubbly, cream-colored head. The nose reminds me of almost a nut brown with a toasty caramel malty, nutty, espresso, toffee smell. A touch roasty, a bit burnt, caramel malty, somewhat bitter, weird toffee flavor. This really doesn’t remind me of a doppelbock. Not all that bad but not that great either.

daknole (9466) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Reddish pour, light head. Toffee, roasted apples, a bit of yeast. A pretty easy drinker.
