biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2006
clear, dark amber with a thin head. Dark caramel malt and raisen aroma with a hint of DMS. Big malt flavor with caramel. Has a bit of astringency and sourness. Perhaps a little thin in body for the style. Nice rendition but I liked previous years better.

legion242 (2163) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Probably my favorite of their’s so far, though I did not check my previous ratings. Very full bodied with, as stated before, nice malty chewiness. In fact excellent malting on their part.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Delicious looking brown body with a thick and creamy beige head. smelled rich, vinous, and fruity. Taste was bready, fruity, and alcoholic. Mouthfeel was rich and chewy. Seems a bit undeveloped, but good nonetheless.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Tap. Dark amber, a bit hazy, beige head. Powerfully alcoholic, pungent aroma of perfume/flowers. Cherries, chocolate...the alcohol could be better; it somehow makes it immature tasting. Interestingly firm mouthfeel and less malt-forward than most dopplebocks.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Excellent beverage. Thick copper. Massive bubbles. Dies away. Cherries and currants. A litle bit of rum. Slight cheddar cheese. Flavors are powerful. Big bold rum raisin kick, with a much more subdued saltiness than most doppels I’ve had. This was appealing. Excellent flavors per the style. Great beer.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 On Tap at Lovejoy’s. This is from the last 5 gallon keg on earth of this beer. Vintage 1999. It really held up well. Not much head. Great prune/raisin notes in the nose. Great malty dopplebock flavor with a little raisin. Slight oxidation. A good beer that I will miss.
Update: Liberator is back and better than ever! Good job Steve!

This was one of the first Live Oak offerings I ever had and it thoroughly impressed me. Full, malty, complex to a degree for the style, chewy, just plain delicious. Now I find that there's a two year old cornelius keg or two that's been found and I'm itching to try it. Word I've heard is that it has aged very well and has only improved.
