JoeMcPhee (8313) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
Deep brown pour. The nose is fairly sweet with a little bit of salty character. Soy-like chewiness. A soft toastiness in addition to a bit of plummy fruit. Salty/savoury character on the back. Full-bodied and a little bit chewy. Kind of odd, but it’s okay.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a fluffy beige head. Nose is chocolate, raspberry jam and brown sugar. Almost full body with a tang. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, sour cherry and caramel with a bitter grassy finish. Rich and satisfying. I would have never guessed this was a doppelbock.

yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2010
On tap at KØ-10. It’s a dark brown beer topped by a small, dense beige head. The aroma is sweetish, with some dried fruits and chocolate, and a nice hoppyness. The flavor is quite bitter and also sweet, with dried fruits and chocolate. Nice bitterness in the end. Warming and full-bodied. A pleasant one, more bitter than most doppelbocks, but it suits it. 100506

(750ml bottle best by 3/31/12 thanks to blutt59) clear rich deep brown, creamy tan head. Nose of raisin, alcohol, caramel and honeydew. Taste of toasty raisin, oranges, candied fruit, and caramel. Finish is dry, nearly powdery with a linger of citrus.

Dark brown with a light brown fluffy head. Chocolate, alcohol, and sugar aroma. Smooth palate with a good chocolate, sugar, mild molasses, and caramel taste.
