Pours a dark, reddish brown color with 1/2 inch head. You can smell the malt. First taste is sweet and creamy. The mouthfeel of this beer is unusual. It’s very smooth and has slick feel on your tongue. Very malty with taste of caramel and a touch of hops. A very good seasonal brew.

Pours a nice dark reddish brown. Lots of caramel malts and toffee. Pretty good but I think you can get a better doppel for ten bucks.

They just started carrying this one. This one is strong on the malt and caramel. You can smell and taste the alcohol content. Definitely a sipping beer and I don’t think I could have too many of them at one sitting.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 Pours a copper color with a small off white head. Looks very attractive, should win an award on its look alone. Mild aroma of citrus and nuttiness. Taste is VERY rich, VERY thick. Almost feels like drinking syrup. Nutty flavor, malty, citrus flavors. You can tell it’s a great brew for its style but this style may not quite be my thing. Good beer though.

As I poured it out of the bottle, it came out in a nice, brown, translucent color. There was also a slightly red tint to it. After the pour it formed a nice, off-white head that settled very quickly. Taking a whiff, there was a pretty sweet, almost fruity, aroma with a dash of hops. In my first sip, I got a nice, smooth, malty taste. It was followed by a nice hint of fruit and sweetness and it finished up with a nice kick at the end from the barley and the alcohol (9.5% is hard to mask). The texture, I thought, was fantastic. It was very filling - almost like bread. And the entire experience was very smooth. It has a smooth opening and an interesting bite at the end to finish it off.

From first sip, taste buds wait for alcohol taste to hit. That feeling lasts through sip, but above-average beer taste follows. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A - heavy malt backbone with hints of smoked wood and leather A- dark leather with a tan head M - heavy malt with light carbonation T- malty finish that is sweet and hot with the alcohol. O - fits the style and finishes on the malty style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow, what a pretty looking beer. Not much of a head, but a nice maple color. For lack of a better word, it had a woody taste. Smooth finish, and definitely a beer I would have again

The aroma was of carmel and coffee with a roasted quality that lingers in the nose. The color was a dark brown that was clear with very little head but excellent lacing Taste was med sweet, with light bitter tones, hardly bitter at all. The body was medium, mildly creamy, medium carbonation that had a long finish. Overall I liked this, not as in your face as some dopple bocks as I’ve had but very drinkable. I’ll buy this one again. I had this with a veggie ravioli with a butter garlic, cashew sauce, and a chicken ragu. This paiored wonderfully with a meal. Might be under powered for some but a good selection none the less.
