nuplastikk (5662) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Release#4 9% ABV. 22oz bomber, didn’t open with much of a hiss, but it still had a nice off white head on top of a filtered ruby-amber red-brown body. A pretty well done Doppelbock certainly, captures some nice lager notes. Smooth creamy malt tones. A touch thin at times, sort of makes you wonder how it would have been unfiltered, but I imagine the way it is keeps it way more drinkable. Rich bready, fig, butterscotch, dessert finish. Really enjoyable beer!

SudsMcDuff (7764) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Had a small glass at J Henry’s invoice. Or is dark brown caramel. That is green meat and white but the leasing is not very good. The taste is mostly of molasses and Dusty cereal with a little bit of booze and fig chocolates. The mouth has soft carbonation it a nice long sticky finish which really rounds off the beer .. Decent doppelganster! .. . . Dictated not read.

colui72 (596) - HONG KONG - APR 9, 2016
Dark brown with a medium cream head. Sweet aroma of roasted malts. Taste is sweet, roasted malts, caramel, fruits. Smooth with a medium body, sweet, not boozy. Classic flavours for a quality beer.

Evolutionary (454) - Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2016
22 from andersons. Red Amber hue with brown white head that dissipates quick. Nose is malty and sweet. Smooth and bready with some Caramel notes. Not too complex but belly warming. Hides alcohol amazingly well. Ok but not great.

JStax (4632) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2016
22 ounce bottle shared. The beer is a clear brown color with a beige head of foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma has a strong wood character with a caramel sweetness backing things up. Very sweet beer overall, with that woody character being the driving factor. An interesting beer, I must say. I don’t believe it was aged in any sort of wood, but it definitely tastes and smells like it was. Bigger body and medium carbonation.

IrishBoy (4078) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Bomber a gift from Furiousdman. Nose is vanilla caramels, citrus, and a hint of golden raisins. Clear amber with a medium lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, and a hint of toffee. Hoppier than most dopplebocks but extremely drinkable.

Slight smokey, nutty, but sour taste. No Salvatore, but good. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stevoj (3696) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle from HomeBrewStuff. Release #31. Dark brown, but clear body, light airy lasting head. Sweet, nutty aroma, taste adds some elements of semi-sweet chocolate, wood, peat, very earthy. More sweet than nutty, but fairly true to style, body could be a bit heavier.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Bomber. Clear walnut brown and short ecru head. Insanely malty and "lagery" aroma, roasted nuts, hinting at grape and bubblegum. Rich, sweet, and chewy… flavors evoke breadcrust, mild coffee, and perhaps grilled meats. Herbal hop background. Full-bodied and luscious with just enough tingly carbonation. Amazing!
