Distinct caramel and malt aroma the second I opened it. Rich, transparent pour with quickly dissolved head. Light on the palate for such a deep malty flavor.

Fresh at the Brewery tap. A great dopplebock with a good bit of character. The Doppel-Hirsch had a dark amber color with a solid two finger foam head and sea foam lacing. The aroma was soft spiciness, like cinnamon and brown sugar. The taste was malt all the way with chocolate and spice. It was a full bodied brew with a slight hop ness that countered the malt all day flavor. The 7.2 percent was somewhat apparent but it had the spiciness tied to it. I quite enjoyed the effort and care put in the brew. As good if not better than Andechs Aying and the rest.

Exemplary doppelbock: beautiful sustainable head, amazing malty aroma. One of the "must try" beers

Aroma is of malt. A great classic double bock. All that I hoped for. Sweet malt flavor. I give it high marks because I like doppelbocks and this is a good one.

Sticky, sweet, and good. Helps to deal with the extended family during Thanksgiving causing one to be much more friendly than they typically would be. For a $1.99 a bottle, you can’t beat it.

Had at The Soup Cellar in Leavenworth, WA, flip top bottle. Explosive pour. Ruby brown with giant bubbly tan head. Strong smells of fruity malt and alcohol. Quite a bit of malt sweetness and rather creamy. Very warming, definately a big beer. Towards the end it was a bit rich. I loved it but don’t think I could drink two.

Moderate head and normal dopplebock dark color. Aroma is earthy. Excellent flavor. I rate it as VG+, which is one notch from the absolutely best beers I have tried.

Reid (1899) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2003
This bottle comes in a old -fashioned snap top..like all the Hirsch brews I have tasted Pours a deep dark brown.very slightly hazy..head is small and dissapates to a fine lace quickly. the scent of this beer is great i just love the malts and the hoppiness..great. very buttery but not too sweet taste..creamy even..a slight warming hint of alcohol..delicious. Feels good in the mouth just right. quite drinkable i could have a few of these most cold nights.
