A distinct nuttiness, but it is has a very pungent bite to its flavor, and it is very sour. The taste of alcohol is too high for its content.

The best beer in the green bottle? Hmm maybe? The bottle is still looking at me like it would like to say to me "why did you bought only one bottle?" .It was very pleasant to drink especially here weather is not the nicest. I believe that Optimator does have all it needs to be top doppelbock!

Deep, reddish-brown color. Decent aroma. Medium-bodied. Fairly full and smooth flavor with a slight alcohol kick to it. Not the greatest, but still very good, and the price tag will probably put it in my regular beer rotation.

WOW! There is a lot of body and taste to this one. Beautiful dark color, slight hoppiness. Subtle alchohol bite.

8/05/02: Handsome ruby/brown color with healthy wheat-hued head...Aroma and flavor in full harmony: complex and balanced: a bit roasty, a bit sweet, restrained but clear hoppiness, and a faint but attractive medicinal (alcohol) quality--it lets you know this stuff is good for you!! This is substantial faire, but doesn’t feel heavy...moderate carbonation helps this effect. Rich malty finish with subtle dryness from roasted malts and hops...This is quality through-and through...10/20/02: Appearance was striking with massive creamy head atop beautiful garnet-edged body...I noticed the nice hoppiness to this stuff more, which really comes through in the finish...Very fine indeed...

Malty, rich,and frothy.flavours of caramel,malt and sweet fill the palate.Doesn’t match up to the top Doppelbocks, still an enjoyable choice.
