More red than amber color, yellowish head and big caramel, toffee aroma. Sweet, full flavored and toasty. Delicious. Mellow, slightly burnt finish, like pancakes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had this on draught in Germany a few years ago and enjoyed it very much. This sample was a 12oz bottle that poured crystal clear brown with a thick tight head that dissapeared in a couple minutes leaving only a few tiny dollops of white foam. Only slight lacing as well. Aroma is super sweet and malty with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is also very sweet and nothing but malt. It improves as it warms and flavor loses a little sweetness. Not nearly as impressive as when I had it on draught but a fine Doppelbock none the less and probably the best German Doppel out there.

this medium bodied beer is dark amber in color. the cream colored head lasted only a moment and gave way to basically nothing. a burnt sugar nose continues on to a malty sweet taste, followed by a little bitter aftertaste. this beer is a mouthful!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle Deep burnished copper colour, massively malty nose. Foams prettily with a vigorous pour, but is quickly subdued. The taste is heavy and sweet but finally balanced with a prickling bitterness. A most hearty beer, with plenty of character (albeit of a malty nature).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light nut brown, much lighter than I am used to from a dopple bock, but then again this is the original
so does that mean the rest are wrong? Anyway, good malty aroma, with some nuts and sweet caramel.
Flavour is very sweet, with some pears and light nuts. A slightly spicy finish sits well on the palate, but I
didn't enjoy this one as much as some others.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish brown almost burgundy color. Has no head. Smells sweet. Taste sweet and alcohol. Has the wet dog flavor. Warming down the esophagus.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is sweet and fruity. The color is a deep amber with a small disappearing head. The flavor is sweet with notes of juniper berries. A very nice beer, but not a good as Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel nor Carlsberg Bock.
