Pours a deep, dark reddish brown color with a thin tan head. The aroma is strongly malty and slightly fruity. Full body with medium carbonation, the flavor is sweet and malty all the way through. This one is thick and rich, with that lovely malty sweet flavor of a good Doppelbock. Very nice.

I havent had any other doppelbocks so this was a unique flavor for me ... very smooth and warm with nice malty flavors ... very easy to drink ... nothing too special in the color/mouthfeel/etc

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2004 Slight head; nice malt smell; smooth texture; semi-sweet, malt taste with a moderately bitter finish (2/14/04 on re-evaluating, I thought the texture was higher than I had rated it before)

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.

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.
