HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - JUL 11, 2009
22oz. bomber served in a pilsner glass. Poured a dark copper with a finger of light tan head. Malty aroma, caramel comes out as it warms. Also a fair amount of American hops in the nose. Medium to full bodied. There is plenty of malt here, but you don’t get the malt complexity of a good German dopplebock. Some sweetness. Hop bitterness makes it a very American take on the style. Don’t go into this beer expecting German Dopplebock, or you will be disappointed. Just enjoy it as a good beer. It has more in common with an old ale to me.

Sampled at Noogfest High 5. The body was medium copper with a white head. Smells of bread dough and pears. The taste was sweet with pears and cinnamon. Some meat notes. A coppery metallic finish. Good.

This poured a very dark amber to brown color. The aroma contains some raisins, caramel, and chocolate. The flavor contains some alcohol notes, toffee, caramel, and dark fruit. Overall this was a nice beer.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2009
From a 22oz Bottle. Mostly transparent, dark amber colored body with some ruddy hues and a thick layer of creamy beige head. Aromas of prune flesh and tobacco abound in the nose, rich and malty, but in a caramelized crystal malt kind of way, lacking in any munich-laden melanoidins. Clean, yeast-wise, with no noticeable hop aroma. Moderate alcohol warmth. Medium-full bodied, creamy mouthfeel with a chewy malt texture. Clean, malty flavors, with notes of prune, fig, and leather. Only a faint touch of hop bitterness helps to dry up the finish. Well executed, but lacks that distinctive munich-driven melanoidin character I expect and really want from my doppelbocks. I don’t say this to imply they didn’t use munich malt in the beer, but simply to state I’d like to see more of that distinctive, grapey, raisiny melanoidin punch.

Doon (109) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Let me start by saying that I am not a lager person...bock’s are only marginally better in my opinion....Pours a translucent copper color with very little head that dissipated quickly. Very crisp lager flavor with a slight bit of a malty flavor. Not my favorite, but not bad either.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Sampled from 22-oz bottle during Dark Lord Day ’09 at table 3. Pours a clear reddish dark amber brew with a thin beige head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and off-white ring. Aroma of sweetened caramel malt, a touch of brown sugar, dark pitted fruits and some raisin. Taste is full bodied, very light carbonated with a smooth flavor of dark pitted fruits, raisin, some caramel malt and brown sugar. Finish is semi-sweet, the a malty aftertaste that slowly disappears.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 12, 2009
22oz bottle. Roast malt aroma dominates with the slightest German hop bitterness. Clear mahogany with a small tan head. Rich sweet flavor with a mellow bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a soft creamy mouth feel. Good beer, the only problem is that for less money you can get wonderful German brewed Doppelbock’s.
