Excellent doppelbock. Poured a dark cola color with large but quickly diminishing head). Aroma of sweet roasted malt, raisin and caramel. Floavor was much of the same, very sweet, slightly toasty. Mouthfeel was creamy like milk. Clean, dry finish.

On tap at der Stienkeller. Man, I do love a good Doppelbock and this baby has it all. Smooth mellow malts with prune and raison and roasted malt and earthy yeast orchestrated into a fine drinking excursion. Nothing fills a 1 liter stien with more style and authenticity.

I got this one on a recommendation from one of the guys where I buy my beer. I was quite impressed when I got it home and drank it. I very good doppelbock. POurs very thick and dark, with zesty creamy head. Taste is a somehwat syrupy sweet caramel malt flavor, with hints of raisins and cinnamon, kind of a rum like aftertaste.

Dark reddish-amber color. Sweet malty caramel aroma. Sweet in the taste. Fairly full bodied, that turns dry in the aftertaste. Good beer.

Dark brown, not much head. Has a sweet and roasted malt aroma. Medium to full body, hops, strong malt, smooth, sweet and little dry in the finish. A good but not great doppelbock.

This beer pours a very dark amber color with a small tan head and a little lacing on the glass. The aroma is very malty and strong but still pleasant. I found this beer to be extremely smooth - slid down very nicely. The maltiness is very apparent in the taste and it is just sweet enough. There is also some chocolate that can be found in the taste. The carbonation is there in the taste, but it is very thin - almost like the bubbles are extremely tiny - dunno how to describe this. The aftertaste is malty with a hint of alcohol. Nice beer.

Dark brown color. Roasted malt and sweet aroma. This doppelbock is a little too sweet for me. It's got good flavors, but doesn't bring it all together as well as others.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2003 First off, what a cool name and what a great bottle. As for the beer, it's pretty much what I expected. Very strong and dark, with a small head, and a good alcohol punch. Malty and sweet in its own way. Just enough hops to balance it in the end. It's not really my style, but it's a solid, strong beer.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 A nice rich, dark beer. Malty taste and alcohol is noticeable but not detracting. The Germans are the masters of this style and this is a fine example. A nice warmer during a skiing break.
