1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2006 Pours to a huge white head atop a hazy ruby/brown body that all but fully disapates. The aroma is strong. Yeasty, cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, banana, clove. The flavor is cinnamon, banana, clove, yeast, wheat berries, banana bread. The flavor is well-blended. Sweet palate. Good carbonation and thickness. Damn this is good.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2005
Bottle from Bitter Virtue. (BBE 28/09/05 Drank 02/07/05). Ruby colour with initially large loose head rapidly diminishing. Nothing about this beer is overdone. The spice, fruit, yeast and malt elements are all well balanced. The alcohol makes itself felt towards the end of the beer and helps to balance out some of the sweetness. Quite a light beer for its strength and it left me thinking about whether I really liked it or not - I think I did but it wasn’t exceptional.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - JUN 23, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2005 Very good, spicy nutty flavors. Slightly sweet finish. The bottle ended too soon on this one, it was very good. ABV not noticed at all.

From opening the bottle one could sense and smell that this was going to be a delight. The perfect pour, with a nice sized head, and a perfect amount of carbonation. The smell is very yeasty, with a scent of a darker stronger beer. The taste fills the mouth and the duration is fantastic. It finishes very well and leaves one desiring more. A fantastic beer.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Pours a clear brown-purple color with lots of carbonation and a decent amount of dark manilla head. Aroma is very sweet, yeasty, and spicy. I can definitely sense the banana smell everyone else talks about. Flavor is very sweet, almost too much so, with caramel malts and a warm alcohol, yeasty finish. Overall, I thought it was pretty decent, but I’ve had other doppelbocks I liked better.

shrubber85 (10756) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Bottle. Strong banana, peach, dark malt aroma. Dark brown color with orange tints - cloudy with small head. Slightly sweet banana/peach and bread flavor with a mild astrigent finish. Smooth - hides its strength well. A great beer

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Poured a dark brown color with a medium white head. Aroma’s of clove, banana, spices and yeast. Flavor was heavy on the yeast with clove, bread, caramel and light hops. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Pours deep caramel brown with a big layer of coarse tan head that settles fairly quickly. Clove and smokey, dark sourdough bread crust aromas. Lots of dark bread character in the flavor too, smokey, sour. Lingering acidity on the palate. A solid beer, but not particularly good for drinking solo. To continue in the dark bread metaphor, it needs cheese or a hunk of summer sausage to go with it. On it’s own it just wears out the mouth.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Bottle. Pours a hazed dark coppery brown with a moderate off-white head that diminishes quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of sweet dark wheat bread with molasses and lightly floral hops. Spicy sweet flavor, clove, souring dark fruit, yeast and pepper in the finish. Medium body and bountiful carbonation.
