tmongoose (2223) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 2, 2016
guest tap to snifter glass. poured a medium cola brown color with now head. just looking at it and nothing else it appeared to be a light to medium body. the aroma was basically a mild sweet, caramel, lightly roasted malts and not much else. the body was mild and the flavor was quite mild for a dopplebock. was shocked that it was 8% because you don’t taste it anywhere in the flavor. just seemed rather watery and I was disappointed.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Sampled at the 7th Annual Parkville Microbrew Festival on April 24th, 2010. Pours dark sepia brown with an off white head. Caramel roasted aroma. Slightly thin in body. OK, but not astounding.

jgb9348 (5717) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Deep dark brown coloured body with a very thin tan head. Aroma of pungent malt, alcohol, pit fruits and a bit of toffee - although not much. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong flavours of malt, yeast and metal run through this one with a light pit fruit sweetness behind. Aftertaste shows nuts, metal and a fairly potent finish, albeit a bit breadie. Overall, not such a great beer - strong as hell and not very balanced. I sampled this half litre on draught at the San Francisco (Airport) location on 21-March-2009.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 28, 2007
ON tap at brewery. Dark brown with a fizzy white head. Sweet bread aroma and taste with some almost cinnamon like notes. Decent, but not great in the spectrum of dopplebocks.

12oz - Wood on the palate at first, yielding to starch. No real hops or depth. OK, but I would pass in the future.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Dark brown color. White foamy head. Aroma of roasted malt. Not coffee just the smell of grains. (Kinda making me hungry.) Flavor of malt. Finishes with a little coffee and distant bitterness. Not a bad beer, just not an impressive Doppelbock style.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2005
RFD Holidaz, Washington DC. A pretty good bock. A solid brown beer that fits right in with Bierschs german beers. Drinkable, and stood up well against most other brewpubs.
