Pours a dark caramel with a rapidly fading head. The aroma is sweet and flavorful. The taste is pretty rich and complex. Nothing too over the top but fairly well balanced. It’s medium-full bodied but quite drinkable at 8%. Not bad!

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2012
Keg, The Rake, Southwark, 04/04/12. Mahogany with copper tints and a slim beige top. Aroma has some synthetic, sweetened fruit lambic (kriek). Sweet and Tunes-accented; sweet raisin, synthetic cherry, malt loaf; milk choc, honey-dripped fig. Sickly without enough malt seriousness. Too much of a ladybeer for me.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Pours a moderate brown color with a thin head and not too much in the way of lacing. The nose carries some light caramel malt and a bit of bread. Quite tame. The flavor is really quite blend with none of the deep maltiness I expect from a good doppelbock. Medium body with adequate carbonation. Nothing special here.

Excellent. Full of malty sweetness. Just the right amount of carbonation. Definitely recommended.

desurfer (1252) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Draft at Ram’s Head in Annapolis. Nearly opaque body with little head. Cloyingly sweet, in a good way, with no hops. A bit on the thin side but still tasty.

Dark brown in color with a tannish head. Malty with a caramel like flavor that is just a touch sweet. Full bodied with a nice finish. Very nice.
