3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz. My bottle looks noticeably different than the one in the picture, but anyways...beer is a garnet color, clear, with a tan head that turned into a ring and didnít lace much. Aroma is bananas foster, clove, some roastiness, hazelnuts, and a touch of esters. Mouth is fairly full, but on the flat side. Flavor is roasted malts, mild clove, mild banana, spicy, subdued-dark fruits, hazelnuts, and with a fairly dry finish. Itís pretty tasty. Definitely a lager, easy drinking, fruity, packs a punch...not too bad. A little flat for my liking, and itís actually pretty rich.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a reddish copper color with a very skimpy off white head. Aroma of caramel, cocoa, nuts, fruit and alcohol. Flavor was a nice blend of flavors. Caramel, fruit, slightly sweet malt, bread, and nuts. Insanely drinkable with a quality palate. Really liked this one.

Scored from DTM’s trip to SoCo. This may be the best Dopplebock I’ve had to date. The flavors of malt, mostly caramel and toffee, came out crisp and full, while not being too sweet. This was very good.

Bottle from Hi-Time Wine in Costa Mesa, Ca. When I bought this beer I was expecting something mediorce, but upon first taste I was blown away. Carmel and sweet malt flavor flowed over my tongue. The palate was impressive. Wish this beer was available in NorCal.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper color with a fleeting head. Nice malty lager roasted nut aroma. Smooth medium body. Decent enough flavors are toffee butter nut crunch sweet with dark bread. The 9% is well hidden. Nice dark lager taste, but far from a Doppelbock.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Hi-Time. Near mahogany color with a decent tan head. Aromas of chocolate and roasted caramel. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor starts with chocolate, roasted caramel, and seems to toss up some lighter fruits. Finish is fairly dry, and quite pleasant. A touch of berry sour seems to be there. Good sipper.
