On tap at Wayne, PA, location - labeled "Sue". Sweet bready and malt flavors, with loads of brown sugar and cinnamon. Quite sweet, just short of being sticky. Not the most complex doppelbock, maltwise, but enough other flavors to keep things interesting and tasty.

As ’Donner’s Doppel Bock’ on draught at Monroeville. Light malt aroma - very weak for the style. No hops profile to speak of. Medium red-amber clear with no head. Medium to heavy watery body with light carbonation. Starts sweet with brown sugar or sugar cane. Malt but not overly so. Light carbonic tinge and light fruity hops. Sweet like doppelbock is expected to be, but really lacks the depth of character in its malt profile that I would hope for. Too sweet overall.

DocLock (9982) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Draft at Wayne location. Deep copper/brown pour with aroma of caramel malt, some toffee and brown sugar. Tastes firm on the palate, with finishing malt, toffee, and cinnamon.

hopdog (11459) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2005
On tap at John Harvards in Wayne, PA. Had both the regular tap and cask conditioned versions. Poured a dark mahogany color with a small sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of malts, bready, toasty, light alcohol and had a light floral thing in the back ground. Cask version was not nearly as sweet as the regular tap and the tastes were a lot more on the subtle side.

On tap at Framingham, MA. Dark brown color. Loads of malt, some yeast, lots of alcohol in this. Decent beer, but like many of their other beers lacks distinctive flavors. Nonetheless, cheers for bringing a doppelbock to suburbia.
