Pale doppel, it’s a dark tan, not really very clear. Good head. Almost prune aroma and flavor dominates with a sweet caramel backup. It’s not too heavy but packs a definate punch.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2004 Not my favorite style but I like the lack of bitter hops. I admire the Carmel flavor and it has an atractive red color.I like this better then Ayinger myself as it lacks the thich medicanal afteraste. I would drink this again without hesitation but I like Pauliners wheat beers much better

Poured almost a clear brown with a nice head that dissapeared pretty quick. Light dried fruit aroma and molasses. Taste was a bit malty for my liking but very clean and refreshing. Not bad and very drinkable for 7.5%.

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.
