What memories came back - skying 87 in Berchtesgarden - oh yeah - we were so drunk - back on the beer: Coffe and caramal nose. Dark brown brew with a little foamy fast diminishing head. Malty and chocolatey. Syrupy fullmouth taste.

Maybe a little bit too sweet, but all in all very good taste of chocolate and some sense of nuts. Dark brown in color with a sense of red in it. Very nice beer.

Caramelly, sugary, spicy nose; dark brown color with red tones; Nice low, tan head. Fully heavy body that is really really sweet. Hints of dark fruits and a slightly spiced finish. There is a nice toasted, roasted sensation after the swallow. Excellent double bock by all means.

mpbro (132) - Stanford, California, USA - APR 4, 2003
(3Apr2003--500ml bottle) Nice beer. Invitingly thick head, light brown. Dark brown in color. Some malt in the aroma, light alcohol, and a potato-like smell. Odd, but not unpleasant. Toasty malt flavor, fairly sweet, low bitterness, slightly sour. Slightly vinous. Finishes a bit flat. Alcohol hidden very well. Warming, but never obvious.

Good beer. Malty but goes down smoother than expected. Enjoyable for 7.2%. A unique doppelbock with good head.

I didn't get much hop in the aroma - very malty and sweet - slightly raisiny flavor. Flavor is definitely sweet and malty, with a lingering hop bitterness at the end. Not as good as the Celebrator or Salvator, but an interesting beer to try.

This was a strange one. The aroma is a bit hoppy, and maybe even slightly skunky, yet there were hints of fruit, and flowers and malt. It was as if this beer didn't know which way it wanted to go. The appearance was a dark drown, with a thin off withe to brownish head, yet not as dark as most D-Bocks I have seen. The flavor is malty, and a slight bitter aftertaste. The beer is smooth and crisp. Overall this beer seamed to be confused as to what it really was... On the label of the one I sampled it claimed to be Malt Liquor, yet is calssified as a D-Bock on this site... I'm confused, the beers confused... But overall it was an ok beer.

Nice dark brown with reasonable head and okay head. Nice malty flavor with a touch of sweetness. Slight hop aftertaste balanced the malt nicely. Pretty good stuff!

Very good dopplebock. Dark amber color. This is not the best dopplebock out there, but this one blows away most domestic offerings. It's a big mouthful of maltiness with just enough hop to balance it out. Good brew.
