fiulijn (15750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle from Markgrafen Bamberg
Light amber color, copper, with medium sized creamy head. The aroma seems to be anonymous, but at some point it develops some delicate hop notes, and malt. Medium body strength, but also a bit of an oily mouthfeel, which is not desired; light malt flavor, with very light cereals touch, although the real quality here is the strong bitterness supported by a hop with some qualities. It doesn’t have enough depth, complexity; what if they threw a handful of smoked malt in?

Koelschtrinker (11753) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Herber Antrunk, das leicht alkoholische Malzaroma kommt erst etwas später hinzu und bewirkt so, dass sich die Herbe festsetzen kann. Das Malz wird kräftiger und verhält sich parallel zum nun deutlich erkennbareen Alkohol. Im Mittelteil würzig, auch im Abgang ist dies noch angenehm, weicht aber zugunsten der Herbe. In Ordnung aber nichts Besonderes. Test vom 24.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,8,9,9,10,9 - 9,00

RichardGretton (4365) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2011
Bottle. Reddish bronze beer with a strongish head. The aroma is malty and slightly rich, and the flavour is very bitter and peppery with a malty and sweetly roasted body. Overall a fairly average strongly malty and bitter beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Draft, I think we got the last of the wooden barrel. Lovely, very warm copper color with a thick and stable head. Aroma is...strong, sweet, grainy. The palate is very soft and easy going. The flavors are balanced. Mainly big and malty and sweet, with fruity undertones, finishing clean and crisp at first. Gets more cloying towards the end of the glass. The alcohol is surprisingly well-disguised and smooth and feel the heat mostly in my head. Makes me sleepy. Overall unspectacular as far as doppelbocks are concerned, it has more of a pale bock spirit.
