UPDATED: OCT 2, 2005 mostly malty, very chocolate/coffee, some bitter note w/ hops on the aftertaste, full-bodied. I like this kind of beer, tastes like a belgian strong. Nice balance with the sweet and other elements, will buy again.

11z bottle. Tasted at work, so meager notes. Golden color, a lot lighter than expected. Raisins and port in the nose, very alcoholic. Same in the mouth, plus slight caramel. A staple during the cold winter months.

JonMoore (2062) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle. Golden/amber colour with a slim white head. Aroma has malt, brown sugar and alcohol. Sweet and malty taste. Low carbonation, chewy-ish mouthfeel, late warming alcohol. Not bad, but rough around the edges.

brown sugar, citrus, and some malts in the aroma with a little maple syrup. very syrupy sweet and alcohol is overpowering over the flavors.

330ml bottle obtained from Torrence Liquors, Calumet City IL.
Slightly alcoholic, citrusy and white grape aroma. No head, little carbonation. Lovely clear golden color -- defintely the lightest colored doppelbock I’ve seen. While there is plenty of malt sweetness and some fruit notes, the flavor is drier than the aroma would suggest. Think of it as more of a "doppel vienna lager." Moderate hop bitterness. Not very lively on the tongue, a bit thick going down. A competent, solid doppel but nothing too special.

GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 1, 2005
[bottle from beers of europe] a golden/orange colour with a quickly diminishing head. Aroma is absolutly not what i expected peaches, liquorice, dried rosemary and alcohol. well bodied but harsh and alcoholic.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Light golden color with a nice head that hangs out for a little while. Aroma is basic and the taste is nothing out of the ordinary. Smooth and slightly bitter. Alcohol is hidden nicely.

BBB63 (6543) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Bottle served in my La Chouffe glassware:

Pours a rich amber hue with a small fizzy head and almost no lace. The aroma has notes of honey, over ripened apple, juniper berry, caramel malt, grassy and floral hops, and a hint of peatmoss. The taste starts highly sweet and fruity. The bite upon the finish is more driven by the alcohol and hop spice than bitterness. A hint of oxidition and earthy qualities as well. The feel is heavy and sticky, as bit cloy. Overall, it is good but nowhere near the level of Samichlaus. I also, don’t agree taht this is the right style of this beer. It is a big Maibock and should be listed as a Bock or European Strong Lager.

Thin but complex aroma, disapointing appearence, head not lasting, just a 3. Nice yellow colour. Heavy bitter flavor with a touch of cinnamon!, average finish. You can taste the alcohol. Medium body soft carbonation.

DYCSoccer17 (3612) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Bottle. Spicy, honey-like corny aroma with some noticeable booze and sweet touches in the nose. Transparent golden color with a whitish head that’s pretty long-lasting. Sweet, vinous, honey-like flavors to start. Mildly bitter in the middle. Finishes with more sweetness. This beer just doesn’t come all together for me. A bit cloyingly sweet. *after viewing RB, this is a doppelbock??**
