From the 25 fl. oz. bottle. It pours a slightly cloudy orange amber with a head that fizzles right away. There are malts upfront on the nose but there is also a harder alcohol note and black licorice. The body is medium. The taste also has a malty note followed by a weird bitterness that has bite to it. It is not something I would have often but I liked the name.

alexanderj (3298) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Bottle; picked up in Mesa, AZ. Poured a clear gold with alot of carbonation streams and a smallish head. Aroma of bread, honey, fruit and alcohol. Flavor was quite sweet and reminiscent of honey. Probably wouldn’t appeal to many. Some light earthiness and hopping in the finish. Bread. Lingers in the finish. Pretty one dimensional, but probably a little better than I expected.

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.

Tmoney99 (10444) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2011
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.

wlajwl (3762) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma is caramel/toffee and a strong hint of sweetness. The flavor is toffee, big sweentess and a mildly alcoholic finish. One-dimensional but decent enough.

tnkw01 (1050) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Bottle. I’ve never had a doppelbock that was such a light color. A light golden, amber color. Didn’t have that strong malt flavor one might expect from a doppelbock either. Still, this wasn’t a bad beer. Aroma was similar to other beers brewed by Rinkuškiai. Flavor was caramel, bread with just a tad too much alcohol taste. Recommended at least once.

How did I almost miss this Yuletime gem from my favorite Lithuanian brewer? This is one of those INO (in name only) doppelbocks. It pours a rich golden body with a foamy white head that soon devolves into some film and a slender ring around the glass. The aroma is buttered wet hay, some runny caramel, and a whiff of nail polish remover. The flavor is much the same but with a shake of canned corn... a tad too sweet on the caramel, but that is cut by the alcohol burn in the back of the throat. Another interesting experience courtesy of Rinkuškiai, and a bargain at $1.99 for half a liter, but certainly no Žaibo.

Picked this up from the bargain bin of the local beer store. The Doppelbock name attracted me to it immediately. Aroma was sweetness and alcohol, as was the taste. Not malty enough to be a doppelbock, more like a strong lager. I still found it enjoyable, and for the 99 cents I paid, it was well worth it.

Finhead (1150) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Clear, pale gold pour with a white head (not like a true doppelbock). The aroma is just corn and basements. It has a medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is sweet with some harsh alcohol burn toward the finish.

Bottle. 2.99$. Pours a clear light gold color with a small white head. Nose is light straw and grain with some grassy hop notes. Palate was thicker then anticipated and left a filmy note. Flavors of grains and straw and grassy hops with a light filmy finish.
