Indra (2568) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Aroma of vanilla, faint smoky wood, flowers, honey, brown sugar, and whiskeyish alcohol. Light golden amber in color, clear, with a medium-sized, fine, white colored head. Malty, sweet, spicy flavor profile, some peppery notes and light syrup, golden raisin and a mild hit of alcohol. Finish has just a brief moment of hoppiness combined with the considerable malt presence. Surprisingly light, bubbly mouthfeel, with some warmth due to the strength. Medium-full body. I was very much in the mood for a beer of this character this evening, and was not disappointed. Unique interpretation of doppelbock, and a welcome one.

fraternie (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2003
Cloudy golden body. Very little head. Sweet, fruity, smokey aroma. Syrupy, whiskey smoke malt. A sweet dopplebock. Very crisp, medicinal finish. Some toffee and bubble gum adds to the complexity of the finish, which still turns out a bit chewy, syrupy and alcoholic. Candy sweet finish.

redlem (1296) - Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2003
A golden color with a orange tinge. Small white head. Sweet malt aroma and some fruits. A sweet taste, not quite cloying but close. Alcohol noticable in taste and in warmth. Sticky aftertaste.

This brew warmed me up...smelled and tasted of grapes; the sweetness dominated with the alcohol taking a close second.

MOboy (505) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Very much not impressed. Maybe it was the THC, maybe I built it up too much or maybe it just had a strange, metallic aftertaste, thin, sweet body and and alcohol flavour too noticable not to mention...nah, it was the THC.

Poureda nice golden color with a sweet smell.Very close to the samichlaus they brew, but lighter.Alcohol is hidden well till it goes down and warms you up.Finish was not too bad, very clean.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2003
Nice golden colour. Sweet smell of alcohol and/or malt, not much in common with other doppelbocks. Light fruity notes. First impression when sippin was "maltliqour..." Not really, but close. Still, this is quality stuff with its elegance and drieness in its long,long warming finish.

I'm not sure I'd say this is worth of the title "cognac of beers" but it is strong and the alcohol is hidden well, IMHO. Medium body, more sweet than malty. In a lower class than Celebrator for sure, lacking in complexity and depth.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2003 has the nice golden color of an ale, but the definite taste of a dopplebock; rich taste and feel; slightly less sweet than most dopplebocks, with a very pleasant aftertaste of hops

Shag (2559) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 A dark golden color with little head. The aroma is alcohol and caramel. The flavor is sweet and filled with candy sugar, honey, and caramel. Some berries are present as well. The alcohol rules a little too much but this is a warming beer anyway.
