Nice brown-red colour with a moderate fluffy tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Flavour is largely sweet malt with touches of caramel. Finish shows a kiss of alcohol with a dry tangy not quite astringent aftertaste lingers. Nice smooth palate. Thanks obisbeer.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium copper color and a thin head. Sweet caramel malty aroma. Metallic off-flavors are present as well as an unbalanced body and a sticky sweet finish. I love doppelbocks, but this wasn't up to par.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours caramel in color, medium white head, light carbonation, with sporatic lacing.   Aroma was of light malts, slight caramel or toffee.   Flavor was somewhat sweet, of toffee or caramel.   Finish was somewhat light, expecting it to be a bit heavier.   Overall it was clean and somewhat crisp, easy to drink, but was hoping for something more robust.   Thanks goes out to batkins for the freebie!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve been chasing this one down for eight years since it was last brewed in 2007. From a 12-oz bottle pours a semi-hazy golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of Hawaiian bread, floral hops and a touch of toffee. Taste is medium to medium-full bodied with flavors of multi-grain malt, some alcohol presence, toffee and floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet, a little alcohol and toffee aftertaste. A little bit lighter than it’s original release but still a solid doppelbock.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a dark and clear brown. The head is thin from the start. The aroma is old cherries, ashtray and a little caramel. The taste has oak with some molasses. There is also a little bit of dry apple. The rather thin body helps this to stay refreshing. This could use a little more character, but isn’t bad.
