3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a good rich red with a slightly off-white tight head. The aroma is quite complex - fruity with rich malts. The flavour backs up the aroma featuring sweet malt, fruit, faint coffe notes on a backbone of alcohol (unpronounced). The mouthfeel seems too thin. This is good, but a touch one dimesional.

Poured a copper color with a medium off white head. Sweet and spicy, bready, and slightly fruit aroma. Sweetness and malt, some alcohol as well. Mouthfeel didn’t strike me as anything special.

Strong aroma, creamy head, slightly bitter, with some spiciness. The alcohol is definetely present, but not overpowering. Overall good, but a strange aftertaste.

Among my favorites. Sweet, syrupy, blackish copper and has substance though not for eveyone. A fantastic sipping brew especially good in the crisp fall. Not for your Bud faint-of-heart types.

Boring aroma, mild caramel. But a beautiful and tempting apperence, but damn ugly label! Gives a sparkly feel in your mouth, and leaves a bitter taste. The taste is sweet with caramel and sharp with herbes. A beer worth tasting, but not worth lovin’!

Ok, so I do not usually like Doppelbocks (besides Celebrator), but this one is pretty good. Fruity and sweet nose. Deep red color, small white head. Sweet and slight fruit/caramel taste. Doesn’t taste that high in alcohol. Pretty nice.

Malty, caramel and spicy nose......is that Play Dough, too??!! thick malty and slightly fruity palate; gives you an alcoholic prickle on the tongue, for sure, and a nice lingering sweetness, maybe a bit too much there..... My kind of brew, though.

This gives doppelbock a bad name. The appearance was a lot lighter then i thought it would be. This beer has a world-renowned reputation, my ass.

I was really excited to try this stuff when I saw it. My excitment turned to disappointment when I tried it. It wasn’t near as dark or as good as I thought it would be. I feel like a real smuck for buying this shit, it wasn't even half as good as Leinenkugel Big Butt Doppelbock.
