Doppelbock? Okay, if you say so. But this was a lackluster, watery, one-dimensional (bad) beer. My ratings are generous.

Dark brown color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is malt, dark fruit and sweet. A medium bodied dopplebock. Malts are fruity, brown sugar-ish and sweet. Touch of toffee and some spices. Slightly spicy hops. Way over balanced toward the big sweet malts. It a nice dopplebock if you can get past the nearly overpowering sweetness. Definitely a sipping beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is very sweet.

Sigmund (5119) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2004
(500 ml bottle - thanks to JensenTaster). Black (= very dark brown) colour, moderate tan head. Aroma of lightly roasted malts, tar and dark chocolate. Notes of smoke and woodwork. Flavour is rich, malty and full of molasses. Very sweet, too sweet in my book - nearly sticky. The 10% ABV is extremely well hidden behind the overwhelming sweetness, could (nearly) pass for a 1.7% ABV Danish "hvidtřl"! The Danes might use it to put hyper-active children to sleep on Christmas eve! Despite the sweetness, I kind of like it, due to its very full mouthfeel. A love-hate relationship, you might say.

IndianaRed (2466) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 8, 2004
Bottle Pours a nearly opaque black with deep red edges. Very small light tan head and course spotty lacing. Aroma is a very deep and strong dark chocolate, raisons, figs, brownsugar...did I mention sweet yet? Sweet. Flavors are all that and sweeter. Syrupy actually. Health coffee and smoke notes come through ABV is quite noticeable. Very different. A desserty sipping beer. Tasty though. Thanks to Captain Cougar for this one

Ya know, normally dopplebocks are just as boreing as the other lagers but this one stands out as really being a force to be reckoned with. It has the very strong characteristics that dopplebock lovers enjoy. However, it really isnt balanced the way others like ayingers celebrator is. The nose and taste are very full and round with malts, nuts, toffie, and cream. Pretty darn good. The only thing is that bad about it is that it is just a bit out of balance and overpowering. but if you like dopplebocks you gotta give this one a shot.
