Nice dark brown color. Sweeter starting off followed by a combination of roasted malt flavor with alcohol overtones. Not bad.

Recalibration time - adjusted down in this rerating after a plethora of good beers. A deceptively mild beginning but a rich and fruity progression, leading you into some excellent roasty flavours. A bit unbalanced toward sweetness.

A very good doppelbock. Nice hoppy taste. Pleasant, bitter finish.

Malty taste no doubt. Raisiny, sweet.

Caramel sweet with bigtime alcohol overtones. It’s OK, but lacks the complexity that a top doppelbock like Celebrator has.

A good, representative beer of its style. You could do a LOT worse, for sure. Roasty nut flavor. Alcohol shows through.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Sweet, molasses malt nose. Dark amber/light brown color. Smooth palate with medium body. Vapory with nice finish. Great doppelbock! (10,5,8,4,16)

From green bottle. Rich malty aroma, sugary with a bit of tannic tang and light fruity hops. A touch of lactic-type acidity. Clear dark copper brown, with thin light tan lacing head. Medium heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with a medium sweet raisin-fig note and mild soy tang. Malty and rich, but the mild noble hops gives a bit of thinning to the sweetness. Great taste to start, then falters at the finish, with a bit of grainy tang, mild fig sweetness, and a medium bitter nuttiness. Bit of a watery after with carbonic gaseousness. Question is, did my tastes change or did the beer or is it old? (6,3,7,3,12)

The optimal beer. A good full flavor, without the bloating! Definitely not a one timer!
