Homebrewerguy (305) - Oil City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2005
A somewhat lightweight doppel. Not as full in palate as most German beers of this style and lower in alcohol. The flavor is of mild roast malt with a raiseny taste. Not the complex flavor associated with this style. Balanced noble hops makes this beer easy to drink.

pineypower (2791) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Bottle. Pours out a dark reddish tinged color with a thick head. Aroma is malty. Taste is sweet malty with some notes of fruit and some strange spice notes, overally I don’t really like too many in this style, this one was alright, thats about it

pivnizub (9482) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2005
Bottle: Amber coloured with a firm, off-white head; malts, alcohol and traces of vegetables or mushrooms in the nose; shy sweet-malty and fruity start; sweet flavour, medium to full-bodied; mainly sweet-malty finish, nearly no bitterness: Not cloying, but a bit too much on the sweet side..........

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2005
Bottled, Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Charneol colour. Nutty, caramelly nose. Slight ashy. Sweet but not sticky mouthfeel. Notes of fruits and almond paste.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Pours deep ruby with a one-finger white head. Standard malty doppelbock aroma--toffee, caramel, nuts, slight dark fruit, and some smokiness. Very sweet flavor, with almonds coming through in the finish.

Sigmund (5832) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2005
500 ml swingtop bottle, bought in Bier Spezi Hamburg. Chestnut coloured, decent light tan head. Rich malty aroma with notes of moderate roastiness, caramel, marzipan and bakery, hints of red fruits. Flavour is malty sweet but not overdone, notes of caramel and dark bread, but a decent hoppy bitterness in the finish makes it very drinkable and moreish. Good beer!

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - NOV 16, 2005
Bottle, 50cl. Nice label and swing top. Brown/amber colour with a fast-fading head. The aroma is good with notes of toffee and hints of malt and almonds. The flavour is very intense, malty and a little too sweet for my taste. In fact, doppelbocks aren’t my type but this one isn’t quite a doppelbock. More like something between a bock and a doppelbock.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle. Pours bold garnet with a quickly fading off-white head. The aroma is musky and malty, with some bittersweet notes. A smooth, but thin, body brings flavors of syrup, brown sugar, a bit of smoke, and a bit of cedar. Not much in the way of a finish, though. Could be better.

Bov (10771) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 3, 2005
clear and bright ruby-brown colour, the modest initial foam disappears quickly; toffee and caramelized sugars in the nose, sweet and full-bodied, clean palate and a long very malty finish with more notes of caramel and a touch of alcohol - well-balanced

Again, I’m surprised at the low overall rating, especially since I found this to taste virtually the same as Salvador. Very clean, smooth doppelbock.
