COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After twenty years of making beer, Millstream has decided to celebrate! The brewmasters have carefully devised a special beer, a dopplebock, to commemorate the event. This beer is available only in 22 oz large bottles, and only 1000 bottles were made. Each bottle was hand filled and labeled by zealous fans of the brewery. The brewers say that this beer is fantastically rich and full of malty goodness. Notes of sweet plums and caramel are present throughout this dark, heavy beer. At 6.25% ABV, this is the strongest beer that Millstream could legally make in the state of Iowa. This beer will probably not be made for another five years, so donít miss out!

Thanks to JPDipso for sharing this: Pours a dark crimson color, small white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, cherrys and wheaties. Flavor is smooth, lots of toasted malt, dark fruit notes.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Dark copper with a small off white head. Maple syrup and brown sugar aromas. Mostly sweet and malty. Normally that is not a bad thing but that seems to be the only thing going on in this on. Not much for depth or balance.

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Tasted at the Tosa YeHA 2005 and provided via Heemer77, I figured:

Slightly hazed brown with reddish highlights with a minimal head and lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, prune, apple, butterscotch (but a good thing here), brown sugar and earthy yeast esters. the taste is sort of cloy, sticky sweet malts and ripe fruit with a yeast background. Not much sharpness or hop notes. The feel is quite average, sticky and smooth. It is okay really but does not make much of a lasting statement.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Clear yet semi-translucent with a bright cherry lacquered Target furniture brown color. No head, little bit of lace. Aroma antagonizes with pistachios, grenadine drizzle and a touch of port with a few cocoa beans that fell victim to an open vat of said liquid. Flavor comes about and luckily this one hasnít bitten the dust just yet, as the nose had alluded to. Slight sprits on the palate but gently carbonated. Sweet Hershey syrup, a dash of amaretto and a caramel coated raisin embody the lighter-fairing doppelbock. Chocolate toffee backdoors it just in time to be assigned the role of "aftertaste." Thanks for brining the Milwaukee crew a bottle, heemer!

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Clear brown body. Tart-malty aroma - classic bock with a dark brown touch. The flavor is really sweet - loads of brown sugar, brown malt with a tomato-y tartness. Sticky mouthfeel.

Ughsmash (7177) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2005
Bottle. Poured a clear medium orange with just a slim ring of beige head. Chocolate and caramel malts, dark berries, and a pleasant nuttiness in the nose, however a bit subdued. Definitely enjoyed the flavor.. carried through the aroma, but with a little more oomph... very nice chocolate, caramel, and nuttiness in there. Somewhat thin on the palate and rather sweet, but smooth and quite drinkable.

1FastSTi (3340) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2005
The beer pours to a dark brown body with a thin khaki head. The aroma is lightly nutty and caramelly. Some light wood notes. The flavor is brown sugar, sweet pralines, light nutty chocolate, nice sweet powdered sugar. The palate may be a touch sweet, but it has a good smooth and easy to drink mouthfeel.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Nice shiny and clear mahoganey body. Thin bubbly tan head. Bready sweet chocolate aroma. Some roasty pinecone hops also in aroma. Nice flavor, a bit overly sweet with nutty chocolate, licorice, roasted caramel. I agree, it is "a bit" flat, but not completely flat and not a bad thing (I donít like overly fizzy beers).

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2005
Courtesy of Pailhead. Dark mahogany with only a ring of bubbles. Seems flat, from the pour. Aroma is very nutty (smells like dried leaves in the fall) with the sweet malt taking the background. Flavor again is nutty up front, with some sweet caramel malt, and lots of roasted grain. Average doppel.
