Golden amber color, white head which disapears slowly. Sweet grainy aroma. Bitter, malty taste. Bitter sweet aftertaste.

RichardGretton (4434) - 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.

Vaiz (3867) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin white head. Aroma of swamp and wet dog, combined with some faint German hops and sweet malts. Flavor is swampy, some bitter hops with spices and a quite unpleasant yeasty malty swamp flavor. Not my kind of brew. And also not something I would call a doppelbock.

Oakes (13594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2011
From the barrel. Copper, bright. Warming malts, somewhat sticky-caramelly aroma. Sweet, caramelly taste with nutty accents. Has a fairly healthy bitterness to balance, with maybe some alcohol coming in late. Not bad doppelbock.

theSlipperyPen (248) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2011
It’s a light amber to golden beer with a quickly receding, loose, off white head. The initial impression of the nose is of a strong lager style; there’s a rich maltiness but it’s not exactly rounded or complex. And like a lager there’s a bit of bread and sweat here. The hops give off an aroma of aged oranges and dried lemons. In the mouth there’s a musty honeyed sweetness that gives the bready-heavy malts and old hops a bit of a backbone, though it does get a tad over the top as the beer warms. And, indeed, as the temperature rises the alcohol comes out, but it has a nice zing to it. The mouth feel is medium with a definite stickiness; the carbonation is likewise medium. The finish returns to the yeast/bread and lager sweetness, though right at the end there’s a bit of a soapy note. It’s basically like a strong, malty pilsener - and though it’s drinkable, it’s not very interesting.

Grima (2195) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2010
500ml bottle! Into the glass pours a dark amber-colored beer that is losing its head quickly. Smells strong roasted malt. Starts also very roasted malt, subtle alcoholic with a strong licorice undertone. The aftertaste is roasty, bitter coffee and decent alcoholic. The further course is a little nutty, but always remains strong roasted malt!

jfb (4619) - Freising, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2010
(draught) pours a clear amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of caramel and tree bark, light toasted malts and fallen leaves, quite spicy and autumnal. flavour is the same, quite heavy on the malts, with some robust notes of alcohol and some light hints of peaches and herbal hops in the finish. medium to heavy body with average carbonation.

Bottle. Clear bronze with a small head.Slightly sweet with a presence that is quite deceptive.Only when I looked at the bottle did I realise how powerful it was.No carbonation and dangerously drinkable
