NikkTwist (2401) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Clear dark copper pour with a tight foamy white head. Wet lace. Lots of medium dark caramel malts. Some dark red fruit. Flavors are solid but feel thin and artificial. Feels forced. Lacking the character of traditional Double Bocks.

ARH (1093) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2014
22oz bomber poured into a stemmed snifter. A very pungent, sweet caramel aroma comes through immediately and dominates the nose. The other aromas are more secondary, and even subtle, but they include butter, a damp, mildewy quality, some candy sugar, cake batter (briefly), sarsaparilla, cola, a bright, orange citrus, and toasted bread. If the sweet, buttery caramel weren’t so dominant, this would be a rather nice complex aroma. It pours a clear, yet dark, amber orange body with a soft yellow / brown head that retains nicely, and leaves a light lacing. This beer has a very potent, malty sweetness (high) with a light bitterness that mostly appears at the finish. The full bodied beer has an abundant, soft carbonation, with a creamy texture that has a sugary stickiness to it. The mouth is mostly buttery caramel with a sweet orange citrus, some cough drop, and a burnt toast bitter. The burnt toast, with some light grapefruit, finishes the drink and the fairly short aftertaste is that of oranges and cream.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint. The pour is a deep ruby with inklings of head and no lace. The aroma is really sweet. There is a lot of caramel malt on the front and light notes of dark fruits. Quite good. The flavor is just a little sweeter and carries the se notes through. I think it might be a little top sweet actually. The mouth feel is thin, and the aftertaste is overly sweet, and not the best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark red pour with cream color head that quickly dissipates. A lot of sweet caramel with a thick, malty body. Decent beer.

smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Pours a light brown with reddish hue. Appears to be clear. Minimal head that ends in single layer of bubbles. Spotty lace. Strong, sweet caramel aromas. No hop. Rich, thick beer, but there’s enough carbonation to prevent it from being too much. Lots of sweetness from malt sugars, but there is some hop to provide balance. The aftertaste is mostly caramel sweetness.

rondphoto (3547) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 27, 2014
@ Jungle Jims / Eastgate Clear ruby brown with a long-lasting 1" head, swirls of lace. Taste is oily very sweet malt that adds dark fruit, alcohol, and more sweet in the finish. Big, sipping only, but no balance at all, and a little overwhelming. I expected better.

Bottle: Pours cloudy, red-brown with a short, tan head. Sweet, bready, toffee aroma. Taste is thick, heavy dark bread....dark fruit. Buttery, chocolate. Very good.
