A top notch Bock, a favorite style. Big nose, big finish, strong and a good hop bite.

TAR (2499) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2001
A very tremendous tasting bock. It obviously has tons of malt and hops, for it has held up well in the two years I have kept it. Very cloudy and nice alcohol kick. One of the best Doppel’s in the country that I have tried.

aracauna (3088) - Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Cloudy red with not a whole lot of head. A strong bit of prunes in the aroma mixes with straw and leather. This is an impressive doppelbock. This was the 99 edition.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2005
1999 vintage. Poured a hazy brown with a golden hue. Aroma of dark fruit and aged malt. Flavor of dark and ripe fruits. A little flat but can be expected for 6 year old beer.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 22, 2001
Too light-bodied for the style, and too easy going. Hops don’t come through enough at the end. Wouldn’t pour it down the drain, but probably wouldn’t buy it again either.

opaque rust, thick tan head, malty aroma, rich dry malt flavor, slight fruity character,
-------- /> Date: 09/07/2005
Vintage: 1999 vintage

muddy brown, headless, wonderful sweet fruity vineous aroma of rich ripe dates covered in a brown sugar sauce, big body, sweet malt flavor, lots of brown sugar character, no hops or bitterness, even though the aroma has developed some wonderful rich ripe fruit character, the flavor has broken down into a sugary syrup, excitment followed by a letdown
