Lovely dark brown complexion. Nice toasty flavor but seems a bit watery near the end.

Beautiful ruby-brown color, creamy head. Sweet, malty nose. Roasty, caramel flavors. Robust and big mouthfeel. Alcohol is sometimes apparent.

An excellent beer. Very ghosty attributes. A hefty ABV which it incorporates well. Not the best dopple Ive had, to be sure.. but still a great beer. Dopplebock is simply a style with many great beers, the greatest being Ayinger celebrator. Those Germans do everything well.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2010 Pours a clear deep copper ruby with a stringy-lacing froth of beige head. Has a rich caramel aroma with some bready notes. Has a robust sweet flavor with some raisin fruitiness and caramel toffee complexity with a decent balance of noble hoppy bitterness. Finishes slightly warming with a chewy caramel sweetness. True to style and enjoyable.

Dark maple color, head dissipates rather quickly. The alchohol is evident. Not close to the best of its style, but as far as beers go, this is a good one. Double your pleasure, double your fun, one road to drunkenness, is with dopplebock gum.

I love the roasty and grainy aroma. The flavors are dull and undefined.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2002
Deep ruby-brown in color. Thin head that left very minimal lacing. Nose is roasted malt, caramel, coffee and some chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel with just a bit of bitterness in the finish. Not a bad dopplebock.

I wasn’t as impressed with this beer as everyone else seems to be, but it wasn’t half bad. Definitely has a sweet, malty/roasted flavor. Seems to be lacking something somewhere

perhaps the first beer I fell in love with... dark reddish brown color. malt, malt and more roasted malt (virtually overwhelming maltiness on tap - less so in the bottle). the alchohol is there - but in the background. has spaten’s trademark sweetness. great beer - but can become a bit cloying for more than one pint...
