Thick, syrupy Dopplebock. Very sweet and malty. Not the best of the German's but a good rich rendition.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Dark red-brown/mohagony body topped by a thick off-white lasting head with a good amount of lace left on the glass. Sweet malty aroma with a slightly fruity character. Sweet roasty malt flavor with a slight fruitiness and a touch of alcohol. Great flavor. Full bodied, smooth and slightly warming.

Bottle. A rich brown with a foamy light brown head. A roasted malt, caramel, vanilla flavor with a roasted malt and nut aroma. Fairly full in body and well balanced.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2003
Roasty and moderately sweet. WabashMan is right, the head faded very quickly. Still had a nice smooth flavor. Maltiness masks the 7.2% well.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2003 A lovely mahogany colored doppel with a nice tan head. The aroma of this one is spectacular, though it seems to have a love it or hate it reaction among ratebeerians. Flavor is also quite nice, though not QUITE up to the level of the superior aroma. However, this is a GREAT doppelbock, and in my opinion, only the Celebrator goes above and beyond this one!

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - FEB 17, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2004 Yes, and again yes. Slightly thick , fruity and bready. More coffee when cold; gets fruitier as it warms. Finishes semi-dry. Not much caramel. Good stand-alone beer. Tried this at the recommendation of a German friend. Quite glad I did. I try to keep this on hand as an everyday beer. It may not be very memorable, but that doesn't make it any less enjoyable.

bigbish (552) - California, USA - FEB 15, 2003
A nice brownish-red color. A good sized light-tan head forms when poured. Some yeasty aroma, and nice roasted flavors. One of my favorite beers.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Bright auburn color with a cream colored two finger head. Toasty, roasty malt aromas. Creamy feel. Sweet malt up front that leads to a toasted malt and mild bitter finish. Lacks a touch of body and a touch sweet, but still near the top in the doppelbock genre.

Poured a clear ruby amber with a tannihs white head. Malty sweet aroma with roastiness and a whiff of currants. Lots of great flavors - malt, biscuit, sweetness, roastiness, and light chocolate. Dry with a full mouthfeel.
