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.

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!

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.

More you drink, sooner you will have to stop. One was enough for me.

Well constructed, short of spectacular. Some maltiness in the nose with yeast wisps. A good late night brew. A great beer asserts itself with a great nose and I can’t find a nine or ten in this nose.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 Deep ruby red, nice light tan head, very complex nose of rich malt, grain, caramel, chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Exceptional doppel here boys. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied and somewhat chewy. Starts out with sweet malt and caramel, middle is an intense sherry like quality thats fantastic. Could have a bit more bitterness but why complain. Delicious. Drinkability is off the charts.

Nice dark color, big head, very malty aroma with a lot of alcohol. Flavor also very malty, a tiny bit sweeter than I’d like (I prefer Paulaner’s Salvator), but overall very good.
