12oz bottle - pours amber brown with ivory head and good lacing. Nose is caramel. Flavor adds molasses or some sort of natural sugars, and alcohol.very sweet. light to medium body. I think I will add this to styles I donít get overall.

This is a "big" lager indeed. The malt really gives this beer that sweet edge. The German hops add a nice citrus character. A subtle aroma and lingering sweetness in the palate.

Good beer. Caramel sweetness dominates along with a lot of alcohol on the finish. Would have liked more complexity and depth.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2013
A - Pours a dark amber. A yellowish brown 2 finger head with good retention. Spotted lines of lacing left behind. S - Roasted crystal malt. Earthy bread covered in maple syrup. Cherry alcohol. T - Wow. Much more going on with the flavor. Chocolate and dark fruits-cherry and plum, rich caramel, and molasses. This one packs a punch in every category. The flavors are elevated and adventurous. A bold and complex Dopplebock that is challenging to pick apart. I thoroughly enjoyed drinking this. For some reason Iíve passed this up so many times. I had no idea it would be this good. Donít pass this one up! We need more Dopplebocks like this in the States. Serving type: bottle 09-29-2010

12 oz. bottle from Jewel, Lisle, April í12. Big malt nose right out of the bottle. Pours a light brown color, though I believe itís just right for a bock, and a thick head. From the glass, the nose remains malty, sweet, a bit alcoholic, and grainy. Taste carries that nose right on through, with subtle notes of cherry, hazelnut and banana. My bottleís pretty cold, so the alcohol doesnít feel that warming. But I suspect Iíll feel its effects before I finish this bottle.

Bottle. Pours a medium brown with a small vanilla head. Nose is toasty nuts with brown sugar. Palate is tingly but full with a slick note. Flavors of toasty nuts, vanilla, brown sugar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle->SA. Medium bright brown with frothy offwhite head. Aroma: malt and caramel, quite sweet. Taste: more caramel malt, and add bread and raisins. Sweet nose slides to bitter and back again to a sweet lingering aftertaste. Good.
