Being that doppel is my fav style, I ecided to rate this style first-The fairly new Sam Adams Imperial....what a disappointment, way too much sugar. Everything looked good and onsistent with other doppels with a nice brown color and thick tawny foam. Smells of mollasses?!?, malts, and some alcohol. Tastes of MOLASSES!!! roasted malt, lot more alcohol than expected, maybe even alittle choco-cherry(might be mistaken). Very thick syrupy sweet confusing pseudo-doppel

12 oz. Bottle. Slight white head. Pleasant smell. Beautiful color. Complex flavors but the alcohol content does not overpower it which is amazing. Highly recommended. Cheers!!!!

MissouriBrent (122) - Missouri, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Sweet malt aroma. Hints of melanoidins. Pours red-brown with a moderate cream colored head that quickly dissipates. Rich and malty with alcoholic aftertaste. Some date-like flavors. While I repect the 9.5% abv, this is not on par with good traditional dopplebocks from Germany. It lacks the complexity and richness of those. Decent enough, but not great.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Brown with off white head. Light malt aroma. Roasted malt flavor with good balance. A little more carbonation than I prefer in a strong "sipping" brew. A good beer.

At the Doppelbock Width Tasting in Shachar’s house, thanks Oren, bottle, cloudy, fruity, pours dark amber almost without head, smoked aroma, and overall a good beer.

UriahHeep (105) - Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Pretty dark red-copper pour without much head. Quite an attractive appearance matched by an intoxicating roasted aroma of caramel, fine two-row barley, chewy toffee, chocolate and also some smokiness. Body has a beautiful malted barley presence and great backbone. Syrupy mouth. Distinct flavors such as coffee, chocolate, caramel and pepper. Sweet brown sugar notes. A bit of alcohol harshness surfaces at times but then is drowned beneath the tidal wave of roasted malt. Medium-length finish, warming from the high ABV. Still contains some Noble hop spiciness, but you’ll barely notice that in this brew.

AnokaBrewer (90) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Brown in color. Malty aroma and flavor. Kind of a browned\burnt sugar flavor as it warms. Very little head and very light carbonation. Sweet, slightly bitter finish.

VAAC (86) - Middlebury, Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Aroma of caramel, beautiful reddish brown color. I didn’t pour much head, so not much to say on that end. Tastes of fruit, figs to be exact, with little malt and a touch of caramel. A tad syrupy, with an incredibly long lasting finish.

As promised, this beer is very malty. Huge body and decent hop balance. A little more complexity in the malt would make this beer really high on my list.
