jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2011
500ml bottle from the brewery. Pours ruby in colour, small white head. Like most GR beers, not much aroma here. Taste is nice and malty, perhaps some Vienna in here. Fairly sweet, little earthy. Good.

I tried this beer on March 2, 2011 on tap at "C’est What?" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent red colour with a thin light tan coloured head. The aroma was sweet caramel malt, vanilla, weak hops, and spices. The mouthfeel was medium boddied with medium carbonation. The flavour was sweet and Christmacy with sweet caramel and nutmeg tones dominating the flavour.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2011
500ml bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Orangish brown colored brew with some white head. Smells like butterscotch coated popcorn - very off putting. Flavor is the same - extremely buttery. Yuck.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is straight buttered popcorn. The flavor is more of the same. There is a ton of butter in the beer. Something definitely went wrong in the brewing of this beer because there are no doppelbock notes, only butter and a little bit of bready malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Disappointing.

wavers1 (909) - Notown, California, USA - APR 14, 2011
bottle thanks to jb84. pours a thin orangish brown, small off white head. decent brew, has a strange twinge towartds the end that then becomes a nice malty aftertaste. some citrusy tasting hops in there as well. drinks almost more like a malty ipa or something.

kevinsenn (1146) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle direct from the brewery. Pours a medium-dark brown with little head. Fairly light compared to other Doppelbocks I’ve had. Toffee sweet malty aroma. Taste is fairly sweet, with burnt sugar flavours. A good beer.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle. Deep chestnut bordering on mahogany. Rich chocolate malt aroma seconded by red berry and pumpernickel bread. Very rich and smooth palate leads to a creamy finish. Flavours of chocolate milk, tight raisin and sherry. Quite nice.

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep clear burgundy color ale with a medium foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light toffee and caramelized malt is quite interesting. Taste is a nice mix between some caramelized malt with notes of toffee and light residual sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed and easily drinkable.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Draught at C’Est What? Pours a ruby-amber with a small diminishing frothy beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, quite fruity (dark fruit) along with some spices and earthiness. Flavour follows the aroma: Sweet, malty, earthy and spicy with a dry finish. Alcohol’s noticeable but not too bad. Average bodied. Maybe it was the mood I was in but I enjoyed the previous Jubilations more, still a pretty good Winter Warmer though.

On tap. Appearance: Ruby red, small brown head. Aroma: spicy, lots of cherry, a little cinnamon, banana. Flavour: cherry, spicy, banana, cardboard, a little pepper. Not super.
