Decent beer for a good price ($1.59 here in Tx). A bit too alcoholy. Not as good as some, better than most.

dark brown color, medium head. Medium to thick body. Sweet slightly roasty malts. A bit syrupy if swallowed too quickly. nice aftertaste.

spydog (75) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2002
Rich flavor with a complex sweetness. I think I taste a raisin or something in there. Not the alcholic bite that you would expect from a 7.2% beer.

A very decent dopplebock. Smooth, wnd with a unique taste with out the alcohol bite. Probably my favorite Spaten beer

HighlanderOne (994) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Rerate 12/2011. Poured from bottle. Aroma of brown sugar with a bit of ginger. Dark walnut, tan head. Flavors of molasses, nut, earthy hops, a bit of spice and alcohol. Birch beer aftertaste. I like the balance of flavors in this. Ok finish. Still a good choice.

Hugerat (452) - somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2002
I wasn’t impressed with this beer. It’s a little more red than I like a double bock to be and the flavor isn’t very complex. It’s too sweet on the palate.

Jumps out and surprises your tastebuds, plus an awesome red color. Another plus is the fact that I’ve seen various deals on it across the country!

tourette (210) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2002
This wasn’t as good as I hoped. It wasn’t bad, but was a bit too strong. It had a slight flavor that reminded me of some cheap malt liquors that I’ve had. Maybe I just got a bad bottle though. My bottle said ’Imported’ on it, where the one in the picture has the foil. Could it be different somehow? Re-Rate: I tried this on tap and it was a 100 times better. Complex, yummy doppelbock taste. Full flavored, but not overpowerign like in the bottle. Very nice mouthfeel and aftertaste. I’m only increasing my rating marginally due to the lackluster bottle, but get it on tap if you can.

MEAL IN A BOTTLE! malty aroma and very complex mixture of tastes as it goes down and finishes.
