Nice appearance and aroma, but the strong alcohol taste distracts from the enjoyment of this otherwise fine beer.

Prominent nut flavor and smell. Some chocolate notes, a little sweet. Powerful alcohol compared with other dopplebocks but not unbearable.

Redwood tinge to it. Smells almost like a Porter or Stout. I have had beer with higher alcohol contents that taste less like alcohol. It really stands out. Tastest almost like someone dropped a shot of vodka in there. Pretty good, but they should have added something to cover up that extra alcoholy kick.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2002
Dark color with a ruby tinge, not a real strong aroma, but what is has is good. Good roasted flavor, a little too syrupy and malty. Leaves a nice aftertaste, that is perhaps a bit too sweet, but overall an exceptional beer. For the price it certainly cant be beat.

CourageBest (51) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2002
Decent beer for a good price ($1.59 here in Tx). A bit too alcoholy. Not as good as some, better than most.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2002
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
