2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark red black brown pour with no real head. Smell is sweet and super light. Flavor is almost non existant. It is slightly sweet and almost has a cherry bite to it. Medium body - a hint on the thin side. Overall, not very good.

bottle, black pour, nose of malts and sugar, this is way too sweet for me, some coffee and burnt chocolate with a decent body to it but just too sweet

Drinking straight from the bottle. Taste is light and crisp. Body is watery, could use much more flavor. Has a macro-type aftertaste, not too pleasant. Now... if you forget this is supposed to be a doppelbock and tell yourself itís just a bock, itís not bad. Just a disappointing doppel.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours mostly black with a slight transparencey to hit and no head. Smell is malty and rich. Taste is thin, bland maltiness with a hint of tartness and not very flavorful compared to the nose. Not really very good or fresh tasting, and is a bit thin and bubbly. Eh...

This doppelbock is weak sauce. I am a huge doppelbock fan and I look forward every winter to drinking them. I thought this was the worst of what I had. Itís good, but not at all very good.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer pours a light brown colour with a full creamy tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, espresso beans and caramel. Mouthfeel is fairly light for a doppel, and taste is slightly watery initially. Decent taste, but misrepresents its sytle a bit.

Tasty dopplebock at an honest price. Big malty sweetness without much hops. It looks good, surprisingly durable head and its pretty dark. Itís not up to German standards, but I am not going to whine about it - this is one of Leinies best offerings.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This stuff was suprisingly good for only being $3.99 for a six pack and the fact that itís from a "Big Box" Wisconsin Brewery. Not that it was the best beer Iíve ever had or anything, but itís really drinkable. It actually tastes kindaí good. It has a lot of the basic characteristics of a good Belgian Dopplebock, but theyíre on the weak side. Not a bad buy. Iíll have to share the rest with my friends just so they can say theyíve tried it.

Roasted malt taste with light mouthfeel and a thin body. Definitely drinkable but nothing to write home about

Dark brown with a touch of red. Thin light brown head. Roasted malt and chocoalte aroma. Roasted malt flavor with coffee, chocolate and some nuttiness. Maybe some cherry flavor.
