Very strong aroma for the style. Syrupy brown sugar, some EtOH. The flavour holds up too.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2002
This beer poured a dark amber color and formed an off white bubbly head that was bit sudsy and left some lace. The aroma was of malt and caramel and a touch of chocolate. The flavor was of malt and chocolate with a touch of caramel. The body was a bit light for this style and not as creamy as others. The finish was light, but didn’t find it as bad as others mentioned, just a touch astrigent

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2003 a little sweet, long lingering caramel taste, but it gives a nice bloom with little bitterness. A very nice bock.

Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2002
Really outstanding beer of this style. It’s rich, malty aroma and flavor, has some caramel flavors, along with some nut flavors. It finishes sweet, and lingers nicely

BillKismet (3823) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2002
Thick amber color with a healthy head in this doppelbock that has the heavy malt aroma desired of the style as well as a smooth mid-range malt body. Easy on the palate--not overrich--the trap to which some doppelbocks succumb. A great beer of this style--one that is restrained in flavoring, and thus, should claim a broad appeal.

uhorpheus (215) - houston, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2003 Nice strong german beer. Dark rich amber color, sort of grainy taste as opposed to a strong belgian, low carbonation but very good.

Deep rusted garnet. Tannish beige head. Dark fruit nose. Rich and chewy malts, raisons, plum, medium bodied, and flavors pleasantly arise when warming. Finishes with delicately placed hops, a wonderfuilly balanced beer. Very drinkable, alcohol is hidden, I love this brew, stands up to most doppelbocks.
