This is a bottle I have been sitting for maybe 3 years now so we’ll see how it is with that in mind. It pours a murky brown color with just a slight beige head. As the bottle indicates this is very malty and gives off a sweet grain scent. The taste is kind of has a barrel aged, chocolate thing going on. Overall it is very sweet and drinkable. Definitely taste a little of the bitterness from the 9.5% ABV but it is very subtle. Very interesting, next time I would probably just drink this new instead of aging it by accident though.

12oz bottle from Spirits Brick. Poured a thick hazy orange/brown with an average sized creamy beige head. Aroma of choclate, caramel, cherry. The palate if full and syrupy with average to stronger carbonation and noticable heat, a bit to thick. Flavor isn’t as good as the aroma and a bit fruitier, notes of yeast, cherry, dark fruit skins, caramel and wet toast. Meh, a bit to big on this one.

Reviewed 9/02. 12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a dark ruby color with a bit of clarity, but nothing too impressive. The head is a one finger cream color with acceptable retention. S: Darker fruits, caramel, and a bit of chocolate. A *very* nice aroma, but a rather typical one. T: Caramel to start, giving way to a midtaste full of toffee and chocolate, while the finish is fruity and lightly grassy. The aforementioned back end has a nice crispness to it for such a big beer. Quite enjoyable, but it could be even better with a little more in the way of malt complexity. M: Creamy smooth and moderately thick, like any good doppelbock should be. The booze is faintly noticeable, but it never comes close to detracting from the experience. It’s not the most drinkable brew, but it’s a very pleasant sipper in general. O: I feel like it could have a little bit more in the way of drinkability, but it still does a good job of ticking all the doppelbock requirements with aplomb. A damn good brew in general; one of SA’s finest regular offerings.

Lubiere (10455) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
A dirty hazed brown bock with a thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of dark fruits, cherry liqueur, musty and powdery character, a bit cloying. In mouth, a sweet caramel and cherry drink, with warming alcohol, a bit lacking in body, but overall, interesting.

bth122 (1296) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Bottle. Poured a cloudy brownish color, medium head with some dissipation. Joyful, plentiful aroma of caramel style malt, cocoa, wood notes. Has a light sweetness and some nice light bitter. Medium-heavy bodied at least. Ave carbonation. Warming alcohol. Long finish. Tons of malt on the taste, slight notes of dark fruit (like a barley wine) also. This is meal. Yum!

Bottle; poured a vibrant red color with a large, off white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, wine, earth, sugar and caramel. Initial flavor didn’t strike me as the style; then, dark fruit and caramel. Slight of sweetness and earthy. Solid beer.

12oz bottle. Clear red / brown color. Little off-white / khaki head. Lightly smokey toasty malts. Caramel. Little sweet taste, some bitter. Good, smooth lighter carbonation. Little dark fruit aroma. Not much alcohol taste for 9.5 ABV, that’s a plus.
