Red orange color out of the bottle with creamy tan head that left a pretty fringe all the way to the end of the beer. Burnt caramel nose. Very sweet malty flavor with lots of brown sugar, caramel, toffee sweetness. There is a darker roasty finish. Very nice beer.

Much better than Ayinger, in my opinion. Nice dense head. Good dark color. Aroma of musk, soy and alcohol. Tastes very malty and smooth. Great finished with a nice malt in the back of the throat aftertaste.

Very nice Doppelbock. Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet/roasty. Starts sweet and slightly roasty. Finish is clean. This beer does not have much bitterness, just smooth malty goodness.

Ring of head, dark brown in color. Nice cookie dough, caramel and some roasted malts in the sweet aroma. Quite sweet in flavor with very little bitterness and a toothpaste like aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2004 Deep brown/tawny color with a nicely layered off-white head. Fizzy at first but disipates into something more creamy and respectable; light lacing. The aroma is very malty for a doppelbock, almost like a Marzen or an Oktoberfest. The flavor is lightly sweet with some plum, raisin and toasted malts showing through. Medium bodied on the palate and very drinkable. I'll agree with the description, this is a classic german beer.

So thick I’d swear they stirred straight flour into the thing - actually reminds me of eating the dough from baking Christmas cookies - strong molassesy malt, anyway.
