Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth thick texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet fruit and malt flavor with a medium smooth sweet finish of moderate duration. Good doppelbock.

500. Pours a hazy medium amber with very little motion of presence to the head. Big cabbage and artichoke funk a dunk on the nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Cabbage and artichokes again on the mid palate. A little basement in the finish. Drain pour.

Found this affordable half liter bottle on sale today at a favorite store and the label screamed out to me that this would be something up my alley. The 9.5% ABV and Santa Claus will sell it to most. I was expecting a double bock, as advertised, but ended up with what I think is Lithuanian malt liquor. The initial whiff was corn, grains, and booze. Pours average amber/yellow with a white head and some lacing. Aroma has lots of apple and some odd spices. Body is medium, not what I’d expect from a double bock. Finish is medium with a little hay. I had to wait a few minutes for it to warm up on me, The 2nd half of the bottle was much better than the first taste. Reminds me of the same brewery’s "Before and After"

Dark yellow pour with a thin white head that dissapated immediately. Aroma is sweet. Taste is sweet and a little metallic. The label is better than the beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7169) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Half liter bottle pours out clear gold with copper hues and thin white head. The mild aroma emits harmless levels of chunky cinnamon apple sauce, a thin layer of caramel and a bit of boozy heat. The taste feels a touch thin to start and delivers a mix of apple sweetness, a mild twang of yeasty tartness and then subtle caramel notes. Midway and to the finish some prune and faint cherry notes join in as well as a dash of booziness. Decent brew for what it is or isn’t.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle: Golden clear, no head, light fizz. Sugar, berry and aspartame with creamed corn and light metal in the nose. Lightly balanced and warming, some sweetness in the finish and a husky grain note in the tail. Sharp.

330ml Bottle - 99 Bottles – Federal Way, WA
Nice easy drinking Dopple. Golden in color, clear with a nice head. Good flavors malt forward with light hops backing. For a late season beer it held up well.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear, bubbly gold with white head. The aroma is quite grainy with some sweet cookie notes and some fruitiness. The flavor is sweet and grainy with a little bit of a sticky pear and white grapejuice behind it. Toward the finish comes a slight hop bitterness with hay and some dust. Biscuit and yeast aftertaste. Meh.

bhensonb (11685) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours orange gold with a foamy white head. Lots of malt aroma with some clean citrus/grass accompaniment. Med body at least. Flavor is a little bready, corny, sweetish, with not all that much hop. No real heat, but the overall impression suggests near to malt liquor. Other than that impression this is pretty much decent beer. Later thought: With some time and olfactory fatigue, this beer actually gets better than decent and is quite drinkable. Up overall from 14 to 15

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear deep golden with a thin ring of white head. Has a sweet toasty caramel malty nose with some light fruity esters and a touch of lager yeastiness. Starts with average fullness and decent light caramel malty sweetness with some malt-liquor characteristics, but overall fairly clean tasting, just a little thin and warming. An ok heller bock and not bad for the price.
