UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 It had been a while since I had sipped upon this interesting brew. It has not held up well in my esteem, as I recall thinking much higher of it in the past.+++ Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer pours a golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is of sweet plums. The flavor is very sweet and the mouthfeel is thick. There is a pronounced alcohol burn that actually makes you think that you are drinking something with far more than the 9.6% alcohol contained. Overall a tasty sipping beer, but the alcohol burn is really too pronounced.

Pours a golden color with little to no head. Aroma is vinous. Flavor is sweet and alcoholic. Vinous and fruit coming through. A sipping beer.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Color is a nice amber with a small white head. Very transparent with tiny bubbles floating around. Aroma is very sweet with a honey and fruity smell to it. Taste carries this apple sweetness with a thick malty taste. Very thick and creamy.

thegreenrooster (3301) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Pours like apple juice with very little head. Aroma is hoppy with some honey in there. Flavor is sweet and alchohol to the point of being overpowering. Im liking this less as I drink more. Kind of tough to handle.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Clear golden color with nice sized white head. This I wasn’t expecting from a dopple, but oh well. Aroma was honey-like without anything much else. Big alcohol, malty flavor with a small bit of molasses. Full bodied and strong.

caesar (5321) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2004
Clear golden color, small white head. Aroma of vinegar, alcohol, some apple. Alcoholic taste, salty vinegar, creamy? How on earth can this crap score over 3.3?! Well, tastes differ i guess.

skortila (4619) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2004
Aroma is strong alcoholic and apple-like. Hops present. Pale golden-orange coloured with a thin lasting white head. Taste is alcoholic, hoppy and bitter. Brew is decent but way too alcoholic.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2004
Golden w. small head. Malty-sweet w. hints of vanilla and honey. Alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Pleasent. More whisky than cognac!

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2004
Eeeesh. I’ll be really blunt, this swill is awfull. Amber-red color. Aroma of alcohol and yeast(?). Weak flavor of malt and strong flavor of alcohol. Doesn’t feel like a bock at all.
