mike67 (830) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2012
500 ml bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours red with a short lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of caramel malt, grassy hops and some funk. Malt, hops and booze unpleasantly combine on the palate. It was a drain pour beer for me. What a waste of money.

seymour (1478) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Tasted from a cool 1 pt 9 oz swing-top bottle into nucleated pint glass. Poured a clear deep copper color with fluffy off-white foam, lasting with some lace. Aromas of toast, caramelized brown sugar, very little hops, very faint roastiness and fruitiness. Strong malliard/melanoidin flavors: that elusive tart, toasty, roasty, browned, almost burnt, mildly fruity, mostly dry impression usually derived from Munich malt recipes. Unfortunately, this is not a very balanced beer, though. Too much residual sweetness. Aromas and flavors of alcohol are much too hot and harsh; perhaps the fermentation temperature was too high. Medium body, low carbonation. Unpleasant, almost astringent aftertaste. The look of the bottle and the beer itself are really the only strengths.

Nephilium (1414) - Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Slightly astringent roasted aroma, with hints of chocolate, a touch of sourness, and a bit of candi sugar. Pours a clear reddish amber, with a thin white head. Very thin mouthfeel, and tends toward the sweet side. There’s touches of light fruits, and not much else. I’m not really a fan of this, and will not be purchasing it again.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Poured from 1 pint, .9 ounce/500ml bottle purchaswed at Trader Joe’s Cincinnati. Dark ruby/brown hue, small tan head that swiftly diminished with fair lacing, moderate sweet malty aroma with chocolate notes, moderate sweet malty flavor with chocolate elements, although some astringency detracts from the overall experience, I wish the brewer would up this one a notch or two. Worth checking out, though.

CanIHave4Beers (3362) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Pours a very clear orangish, almost amber color with a great big fluffy white head that fades and leaves some lace on the glass. .

The aroma is strikingly, oddly sweet... like cotton candy & some caramel... maybe a little over cooked cake. It’s really not pleasant or very inviting smelling. Not outright putrid, but certainly not what I like a beer to smell like by quite a long shot.

The flavor has some of the creamy, lightly roasty, mildly spicy pleasantries of a dopplebock, in fact it smells worse than it tastes. The flavor is a tad too sweet and malt forward in sort of an odd way, but it’s not as sticky or off putting as the aroma lets on. Some pear and nuttiness get through as well. There are a good number of things that this beer has going for it flavor wise but it lacks some finesse to allow those flavors to work well together throughout.

BrewDad (5040) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Decent brew. very lifeless and light in flavor. Wish this had more. Seemed like this sat way too long on the boat over.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Clear reddish-amber with a thin white head. Aroma of cherry cough syrup. Taste is fruity malts with light bitterness and a dry finish. Thin body, and the alcohol peeks through at times. Enjoyable, but no dopplebock.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Clear, medium amber pour, white head. Floral, caramel, and toasty notes on aroma. Nothing else really stands out when sipping it, just more sweet caramel and floral hops on a moderately light body. I’m really not seeing the "double dark" or the doppelbock aspects, but it remains quaffable.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bronze-bodied, off-white fluffy caramel head. Heavy wood and malted nose with honey malt, esters, and sweet hops. The body is also of honey malt grains, with some sour tannins and saccahrine sugar finish. It lacks the malty depths, particularly the melanoidins and malt ball qualities one expects of a doppelbock. The strength is pretty well masked. To me, this is a souped up amber lager - or, what an imperial Vienna Lager would taste like, if such a style were recognized. :)

Reid (1946) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2011
500ml swing top bottle ( very attractive package) from TJs Salem Oregon, $3.49 Amber/orange ale with a big ole thick bubbly off white head Subdued aromas..mainlly creamy cereal,roasted peanut..not that bad really Taste is again of course malty..bready,hay..slightly toasted..some semi-dark coffee bittering at the very end. I actually liked the mouthfeel..its rich enough yet still easy..only a touch of the alcohol. I actually did like this beer but its no doppelbock..a nice strong bock/ale hybrid
