Clear dark amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, roasted coffee beans, slightly bready and faint hops. Taste of roasted malts, slight caramel, slightly bready, hint of smoke and faint hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, a little low on flavor.

Light astringent hop bite. Odd I am guessing unique flavor is from the smoked malt. Not bad. No aroma however. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Man - I hate that this will bring down my doppelbock score, as it;’s a style I love when done well...but my average just doesn’t seem to indicate that. Definitely NOT doppelbock in presentation. More pale bock, and kinda weak even then. Malty and boring...slightly bready but that’s it. Won;t be back here anytime soon.

djd07 (8764) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2015
On tap at Black Hole Brewing. Pours a cloudy amber with small white head that leaves sticky lacing. The aroma is smoke and wood. Medium mouth, smoke, oak, cocoa, toast, light dryness, good.

BeerandBlues2 (11829) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, fizzy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is light vinegar and vinous notes, light caramel malt. Flavor is tart vinegar, light caramel malt and dates with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Not sure what went wrong here, but this is not what I expected.

bartzluke (532) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 30, 2015
12 oz pour from room-temp bomber into shaker pint. Dark amber and mostly opaque with a fizzy tan head. Medium body, highly carbonated, and a bit fizzy. Nose is sweet malt and roasty wood. Taste is caramel sweetness, dark malts, lots of woody taste, a little peppery taste, and some smoke. Nice and complex. A very enjoyable doppelbock. The oak stick aged in the bottle is really neat. Never seen that before.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 I also don?t really understand the hate toward this beer. It?s a great "grilling" beer. Plus, there?s an actual oak stick in the bottle to keep infusing with flavor! I?m definitely a fan of this one.

Nice bock. Subdued sweetness in the malt flavor. Surprising hop kick. Don’t understand why this beer doesn’t get more love.

Ferris (11034) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle - Toasted malts, light smoke and some cocoa. Mahogany and beige little head. Toasted malts, cocoa and a thin clean finish. Gimmicky packaging is annoying,
