3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had it straight fron the bottle so dont know what exact color or head was it. First sip was quite pleasant, had some nice flavour to it, this beer has thin body though with a bit watery finish and a bit too carbonated. Leaves kinda sour aftertaste in your mouth. But comparing to some other cheap lagers this is quite alright. Would definetley buy again for a party or smth, not for solo tasting.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark brown brew with a small head. A nutty, malty, with a little caramel thrown in making it awesome. I was shocked as to how drinkable and smooth this was. I’m going to try it again later since my rating seems to be out of whack with most others. Maybe it caught me on a good day or this one really appeals to my palate...kinda like how most IPAs don’t.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a beautiful black cherry brown. Head is a light tan. Dissipates quickly. No lacing. Aroma of caramel malts, light cocoa powder, and buttered bread. Taste is sweet malts, with hints of caramel, chocolate and buttery cracker. Finish has some bitter and sweet black cherry. Decent take on a bock.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is malty and nutty while the pour is a cherry coke brown with a non-lasting tan head and nominal lacing. On the tongue, the taste is much like the nose. Richly roasted malts and a nuttiness. Having said that, it was just not a good example of a Doppelbock. Sad. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, drinkable but kewpie doll.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle pors a clear copper brown with small off-white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma has caramel malt, some nuts, and perhaps some brown sugar. Taste is slightly sweet, but without much flavor or finish. Body is light with slight carbonation--way too watery for a doppelbock. It’s easily drinkable, though. Nothing exciting here, except for the glare I used to get when I would bring home six o of these from the grocery store and tell my wife it made me think of her.

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thin tan head. Very mild malty aroma and some vegetal hints. Flavor is mild and watery as well. Some caramel malts and not much else to it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a small tan head on there. Nose has some strong caramel notes to it with just a bit of toasting to it. Taste is a bit sweet and nicely caramely. Pretty light and easy drink, though nothing terribly overwhelming.

Pours a dark reddish brown, excellent clarity, with a small light tan head. Head reduces quickly to a thin ring.

Taste: Milder that the aroma suggests. Slightly sweet.
Medium body with some bite rather low carbonation.
O - Not bad, but rather mild flavor for style.
