Tmoney99 (11911) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Draft sample at 2009 MBG Winterfest. Poured dark reddish brown with a moderate light brown head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good caramel toasted tart fruit and b ourbon barrel aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Good well balanced woody bittersweet flavor with a moderate smooth bittersweet finish of long duration. Standout doppelbock.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle... Pitch black lager with a small, creamy, white head. Smoky, chocolaty aroma also offers less significant notes of wood and bourbon. Medium-bodied and a touch astringent with jovial carbonation. The flavor pulls a lot of acidity, tannins and bourbon from the barrel, but the caramel malt is left intact and flows underneath the radar throughout both the flavor and finish. Earthy, woody and tangy in the end. GoT thinks it’s mack. Word. Thanks to that crazy SOB for sharing the bottle!

Enjoyed on the bus to Bell’s during RBSG. Deep amber pour with a sticky white head. The nose is lightly fruity. A sort of salty character along with a lot of bourbon on the nose along with some nice oaky contribution. Toasted oak, light vanilla and a little bit of lightly lactic tartness. A touch of dark funkiness going on as well as a bit of the light fruit. Pretty nice stuff although its hardly doppelbock anymore.

Pour on tap at the brewery, muddy brownish pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, cocoa, hints of nuts, touch of bourbon, vanilla, touch of oak, sweet caramel and molasses notes as well. Taste was a mix of sweet bourbon, oak, vanilla, hints of earth, spice, some nice dark fruits, molasses, and toffee, finishing fairly sweet.

marcus (7558) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 7, 2007
On tap at the Livery. This black ale poured with a miniscule beige head. There is a really nice roasted malt flavor with a mellow bourbon finish. This one was good to the last drop.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Thanks to Mike for bringing the growler! Poured clear deeper brown with just a little yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up sweet bourbon and vanilla over drawn caramel upfront.. a bit sour and a bit smoky.. a little too much simple sugar going on.. enjoyed the closing impression of bourbon and vanilla as well. The flavor had warm caramel and chocolate (more caramel) with nice bourbon and vanilla accents.. warm, rather dry finish.. good use of lightly-smoked caramel and well-balanced. Syrupy on the palate with lower carbonation.. some sourness from the bourbon and oak at the edges.. warm at the end with a bit of alcohol bite. Solid stuff!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the 2007 GTMW: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a well-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel and light fruits with a touch of bourbon oak. Starts with a light tartness and dark caramely sweetness along with sweet and tart dark maltiness with some black cherries and vanilla. A pretty good barrel-aged doppelbock.

750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy orange brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet caramel malts, ripe fruits, cherries, and oak barrels. The flavor has caramel sweetness, ripe fruits, a slight tartness, cherry vanilla and bourbon. Medium bodied, which seemed a bit thin for the beer. Otherwise a nice barrel aged dopplebock. Rating #35 for this beer.

after4ever (6688) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2009
750, capped. cool square shouldered belgian bottle with a cap. pours cloudy dark brown with garnet highlights and a loose tan head. outrageously bourbony nose. definitely too much & out of balance. creamy medium body, kinda flat. roasty toasty malt underneath a bourbon tsunami on the mid palate. tasty but lopsided.
