Smells like caramel extract. Light brown. Somewhat hot but balanced with the malt. Ok.

Too much of a caramel bomb for my liking. What Travlr said below is right - kind of a creme brulee vibe. For me it’s a little too syrupy in consistency though and too sweet. Some roast. Very sweet finish with burnt elements. Dark mahogany pour with ok head and lacing. Tap at Right Proper.

Draft at Right Proper. Clear extremely dark marron color, beige head - see pic please. Huge burnt creme brullee aroma. Taste has rich sweet butterscotch, cocoa, espresso. Delicious.

DiarmaidBHK (3785) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2015
Draft at taproom. Pours dark brown with a thin khaki head. Rich and malty on the nose. Kind of like a malted milk ball of a beer. A little thin on the tongye but still flavorful. Finished clean. Solid bordering on nice.

On tap at their place on Locust Street. Pours dark brown with a thin creamy tan head that persists. Aroma is malty. Flavor is sweet and lots of toffee maltiness. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Narnad (1504) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2014
3-22-2014 Deep black in color with a low head and very clean. Nose has a light nuttiness too it with some light chocolate, mild raisin and dark fruit sweetness. Flavor is strong of malt, strong raisin, light coca nib chocolate late and a light nutty finish. Body is thick, low amount of carbonation and a slightly sticky feeling to it. OVerall a good brew but strong sweetness from the raisin.

seymour (1684) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sampled on tap at the 2012 Schlafly Hop In The City festival. It poured a clear, medium reddish-brown color with lasting beige foam and some lace. 100% true-to-style Doppelbock aromas and flavors. Malty, great marshmallowy pils sweetness, balanced by tangy, peppery noble hops. Well-balanced and very drinkable despite the higher alcohol. Medium body and carbonation, faint but pleasant caramelly aftertaste. Nicely done.

Sampled at the 2012 Heritage Festival. It poured a dark amber color with a white head. The aroma was of bread, coffee and some alcohol. The taste was of coffee and toast with a hint of alcohol. A very tasty Doppelbock.
