Very good flavor, yet it was like drinking cement. Good, but not my style.

A good mid-level doppelbock.When you can’t find Salvator or Aventinus, a decent substitute, though on a par with Sam Adams Winter Lager.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2004 Awesome doppelbock! Dark reddish brown in color. Sweet with hints of chocolate and caramel. Sugary and low carbonation. Classic example of the genre. Tastes stronger than it is. Very bold. HIGHLY recommended along with Paulaner’s Salvator and EKU 28.

Very sweet , with strong malt and burnt caramel taste followed by the alcohol. Leaves the sweet taste lingering in the back of your throat. Not the best German brew but you could do worse.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2004 Very sweet--like it's supposed to be, without the high-alcohol-content burn that some doppelbocks have. Pile on the malt. I just wish I didn't have to drive to Virginia to get one.

Too much alcohol flavor in it to really be enjoyable. Quite a bit of hops also, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. There are better beers at the price to make you happy.
