(02.11.06) On tap at Firkin’s, Libertyville, IL. Clear amber hued doppelbock having a giant long lasting off-white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Fruity/sweet malt aroma. Medium bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and spicy/fruity flavors. Finishes dry with light hop bitterness. Very malty. A good drinkable malty beer.

Tried this beer again on the Lakefront tour (highly recommended, BTW). Flavor was initially hoppy, but finished pretty weak. Not one of my favorite Lakefront brews, but certainly not terrible.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Clear copper. Nose bready, some caramel. Flavor sweet caramel malts, some bright fruit, bit chemical. Why is a bock that tastes like a Vienna named after New Orleans, anyways?

heemer77 (5105) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Medium orange body with a small bubbled slightly off white head. The aroma is pears with some light bread. There is also vanilla and the faintest hint of citrus. The taste is intriguing. A little sweet with carrot juice and some mango. There is also a medicinal quality that is almost like menthol. There is also a litte bit of bread crust. This is a strange package, but not bad.

Braudog (5873) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Robust aroma, sugary and sweet. Drinks smooth and silky with a hint of the alcohol. Caramel sugar with an almost clovey bite.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 4, 2005
sugary, barley-wine aroma. Pours a nice copper brown. Called a lager, classified as a bock on the site, and tastes like an amber. Go figure. Sweetness and heavy palate. Still a good beer though. Enjoyable and refreshing.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Slightly cloudy rose-orange pour, lacking much carbonation. Head, mostly diminished, is off-white. Aroma of bread crusts and egg whites, with a hint of lacquer and acidic red wine. Rich sugary malt, that blossoms into a lightly hopped caramel sugar, finishing with a touch of cardboard. A little bitter aftertaste. I’m thinking light struck. Notes of brandy, fresh white wine, and an off tone or two. Palate is smooth, crisp and fairly clean, except for some residual oily wet paper and vanilla sugar coating.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Bocky butterscotch aroma floating off the wispy-foamed lake surface of orange brew. Buttery, butterscotchy, a hint of lactose bitter-sweetness. Thick palate, suds hitting a bit late to lighten the load. Sticky finish but clean in taste.

Aurelius (4317) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Vinegar, sloe and stinky malt aroma - I didn’t care much for it. Tangy, lightly sweet, a bit fruity. Not very hoppy. Fun label, misty copper colored brew with a big bone colored head, suspended bits and particulates floating around in there. Finish has a crisp acidic fruit turn, there’s a little bit of a funky malt aftertaste. A bunt single brew.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Aroma is extremely malty/grassy yet at the same time soft, pillowy - a rare combination. Flavor is similar - very relaxing and employing extreme maltiness to the positive, bringing out elements of caramel apple and maybe a bit of hops. Normally I might cite the low proportion of hops as a detriment for a Doppelbock, but for the style Lakefront has skillfully crafted a malt dominant beer. Hats off to them!
