3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours brownish-orange with a decent sized off white head.
Smells citrusy and slightly sweet.
Tastes- Hoppier than I was expecting. I saw doppelbock and my mind went to Korbinian but this beer is much more bitter. More hops and citrus than anything else. That being said, once I got over my expectations I enjoyed this beer. The bitterness is not over whelming by any means and the citrus notes are pleasant.
MF-Medium body and slightly carbonated.
Overall- Not what I think of when I think doppelbock but a pleasant beer nonetheless.

Dark copper color with a nice toast smell and malty notes. White foam with nice lacing and fair retention. Light carbonation and smooth mouth feel. Tastes of baked crackers and light bitterness in the back. The bitterness sits in the after taste for about 3 to 4 minutes and on the toung for longer. Some hopps balanced by sweetness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 3/13/14. This dopplebock pours a light to medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Large to medium sized white foamy head with decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is malty, sweet and bready. A medium to light bodied dopplebock. The malts are bready, caramel and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Nice malty and bready dopplebock, dark fruit and some brown sugar. A touch boozy and perhaps a touch of oxidation. Very drinkable. Aroma is sweeter than the taste. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle. Orange color with thin head without retention. Aroma is layers of dried fruits and caramel. Flavor has lots of dark fruit sweetness with dates, raisins and prune notes. Has a light herbal bitterness toward the bad end. Medium and full-bodied with no carbonation on the tongue. The palate displays sugar with a mildly syrupy texture. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma has a rich caramel malt aroma mixed with lemon and pine.
The taste starts with caramel sweetness, then some moderate pine and lemon bitterness comes through, finishes with the caramel sweet again.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It’s a hoppier and less sweet doppelbock. I enjoyed it.

Pours a clear dark golden color, with a white head. Aroma of mixed hops and malt. Taste is slightly more hops, but the malt is there too. Fairly smooth and drinkable. The relatively high alcohol is not apparent. Thumbs up.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Surprised this is not rated higher. Rich full malty flavor, with an oak vanilla strain that holds in the aftertaste. Very dry & a touch light for the style. Lovely & unique.

Draught. This is an ok doppel bock that is easier drinking and less cloying than most. The depth of flavor suffers though.
