winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - AUG 7, 2006
Poured a clear copper hue with a thin head that lasted no more than fifteen seconds. Aroma is moderately pleasant with caramel up front with some fig, raisin and hint of wood. Flavor is disappointing though still has a lot of substance, I just expect a little more from a dopplebock. A solid caramel flavor is followd by raisin and a sllight herbal woodsiness. Palate is sweet though watery and flat.

EithCubes (5555) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2006
Swing-top. Sweet dark malt with caramel, toffee, and grape. Clear dark brown pour, no head. Taste is sweet and caramelly with brown sugar, toast, and light alcohol burn. Suprisingly light. Finish is dry. A tasty but non-exceptional Doppelbock that still fills a role. Thanks, joss!

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 26, 2006
Abolutely love the aroma of this brew, the sweetness really comes out and is heavy in the flavor too. No lasting head but the flavor makes up for that small flaw.. can’t find much objectionable about this, except that its too easily drank ;)

Bottle. Brown colour with beige head. Sweet malt aroma with toffee. Sweet malt and toffee and alcohol flavour. Carbonated bitter finish.

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2006
Bottled. Dark amber with a dense but diminishing beige head. Sweet and malty aroma with toffee and hops. The flavor is maybe a bit on the sweet side, lightly roasted and malty with some alcohol and hops. It feels lightly sticky on the palate. The finish starts sweet, but turns bitter. Ok beer, but it is not as balanced as I could wish for. (060422)

thegreenrooster (3977) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2006
Pour is a ruby red with a small white head. Aroma is hard to detect with some notes of caramel. Flavor is of tons of raisions with some toffee, candy sugar and brown sugar. A pretty good beer and by far the tastiest from this brewer.

beerbomb (222) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2006
From the way I sampled it (completely flat) this beer was tarnished obviously by the results of bad bottling. This is my second experience with this brewery and both times, in swing top bottles, their beers have poured like water. Great background flavors exist, but its hard to see past the dead, vineous mouthfeel. For this doppelbock, the background is rich and fruity with raisins and caramelly malts. Still, its fullest representation was destroyed by the flatness caused by poor bottling.
