From the bottle: Poured a dark amber with a fairly decent head that dissipated quickly but left some strong lacing. Good aroma…malty and sweet. Good thick mouth-feel. Interesting spice in the taste along with the malt that I was smelling earlier as well as some of that 8% ABV. I’ve not had a lot of doppelbocks but I think this one encouraged me to try a few others to compare.

Pours a thick, two-finger off-white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Nose is caramel. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is sweet toffee and caramel, hops balance but stay in background. 22oz gift bottle from Tigard, OR.

Wish they’d make this a regular. Great beer all around and a very good value.

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Understated but very well done. Sharp, uniform sparkling deep brown liquid. Medium aromas of toffee and apple. The hops are a clean bitter and backgrounded but are come into play in both aroma and in the finish. No oxidized flavors or aromas common to the style in European examples. You can taste the quality malts.

Beer poors Dark with a strong tan head. Aroma is of raisin and fig with a nice roasted character. Beer flavor is slightly sweet with a medium bitterness. Palate is not overwhelming, but quite drinkable. Overall beer is great, look forward to picking up another bottle if I see it.

Definitely loved the Oktoberfest maltiness of this brew. There was a nutty and caramelly flavor to it. Very rich and full in flavor. I loved it.

I am perpetually underwhelmed by just about every Full Sail offering as was prepared to be for this one, given its one of my favorite styles, but they put together a winner of a drink. Big toasted malt backbone with lots of peppery spice notes and small molasses hints. Smooth creamy mouthfeel and a nice spiced hop finish. Really welll constructed drink and the bottle art was wonderful.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 18, 2008
Pours with an opaque dark brown body topped by a thin to medium thick ehad with some lacing. It is sweet and malty with notes of dark fruit, a light roastiness and some alcohol esters. Medium to full bodied, well carbonated and a touch warming.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - JAN 26, 2009
From a 22oz. bottle purchased locally. Aroma is full of malty and has a rich melanoidin character, with a touch of toast. Deep brick red amber with a small beige head. Flavor is malty, like toast with a slight figgy fruit character. Bitterness just balances the malt, while still being malt forward and not overly sweet. lingering dark caramel in the aftertaste. Chewy and rich, but balanced and drinkable. Very nice.
