Very malty aroma with hints of bread and honey. Sweet and malty taste with just a touch of bitterness to balance it out. Heavy mouthfeel.

Pours thick with a large head; a dark-orange color. Smooth, malty smell. Rich, creamy flavor, clean with a slight alcohol taste. Very good.

nice clear,dark amber color,good head but faded fast.
strong sweet roasted malt flavor like a stout..
a bit to much alcohol for my taste on the finish,,this would be good once in a while but not more than one.

Very nice molasses smell. Orange-ish, brown color, not much head. On my first taste I had only minutes earlier finished a chocolate bar, and the beer tasted quite like strong coffee with alcohol. Not liking that, I waited a bit and tried again. Much better...nutty, smoky, and chocolatey. Alcohol is noticeable in the finish, but is not unpleasant.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Low, fizzy head. Dark caramel coloring. Tastes sweet with roasted malt, with chocolate finish. Slightly spiced, warming effect, with minor finish of alcohol. Pretty good beer for the price. Not my favoritate style, nor my favorite of the style, but it’s quite drinkable. Kinda thin for a dopplebock, but it's not bad. I prefer Paulaner's excellent hefeweizen over most of their other beers.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a medium redish brown with no real head a little lacing. Stong aroma of honey, warm spices and malt. Sweet and malty up front with honey, hazelnuts, prunes and a nice full smokey slant. Plenty of carbonation and the finish is quick with a little bite that hangs around. If this is a typical Doppelbock, I’ll be looking for more in the future.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a wonderful red/brown colour with virtually no head. The nose is malty with hints of bread. The flavour evokes caramel sweetness with spice notes. Nice little hit of alcohol on the finish makes for a nice mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Rusty orange hue; cloudy. Where’s the head? Nice apricotty/bready aroma. Like the malt presence & tartness on back of tongue. Roasty yet drinkable in quantities.
