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 didnít 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, thatís a plus.

12oz bottle from Chipís in OBX. Clear deep amber color with a lasting light khaki head. Big intense aroma with lots of brown sugar and toffee, dark candied fruits, and alcohol. The flavor is a bit too sweet but otherwise nice and complex. Big candied dates and prunes, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, and booze. Full-bodied and syrupy, boozy and warming. Good in some ways but a bit intense and cloying.

TheJester (1860) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
355 mL bottle. Looks the part, with a small, beige head. Smells, bready, with a touch of alcohol, as it should. This carries over to the flavour, although there is not much else to speak of. Body is as creamy a doppelbock as Iíve ever had. A solid example of the style.

Pours clear light maple color, no foam from bottle. Sweet aroma, bread, yeast, raisin. Yeast and alcohol taste, hint of bitterness. Definitely not a bad beer but not very inspiring either.

Dark amber with a head that stays till the finish, and spots of lace. The aroma is appealing - a clean malt with dried fruit overtones. The taste is full roasted caramel malt with dried prunes and raisens. This grows to a carbonated bitter finish that is most satisfying. A big brew...sipping only, and deceptively strong. Recommended.
