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.

the alcohol taste came through a bit too strong. the malt profile was nice but it fail to cool a very "hot" beer. not my favorite doppel

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.

Poured dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Wheaty, strawey, almost skunky aroma. Sweet taste upfront with a sweet and roasty taste.

Another great product from Germany. Thank goodness for the "Reinheitsgebot"! This brew is dark, rich, malty and strong. Weak head, but that only keeps the mustache cleaner. Among the best of commercial German Doppelbocks.

Good aroma. Nice malt backbone throughout, with a nice roasted flavor. Finishes slightly sweet. Alcohol comes through more as it warms.
