hot diggity damn! This juice’ll knock you on your tailbone. The malt presence is beyond high (im a hop guy usually), and it got me a lil sick after a few. But i still felt no pain. Very full and strong, you can taste the alcohol content, but its not overpowering or overly bothersome. My first doppelbock.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2009 This was a very good beer, but I was expecting a little more. Flavor seems to deminish after first few drinks. Update: I added a point for flavor. Maybe I drank it too cold the first time I tried it. The last few times I have had it, more of the big malt flavor has come through and followed through.

Rich, malty aroma, with traces of fusel, ethanol, and other fermentation by-products. Bright and quite dark, with beautiful ruby highlights. Full palate with malty sweetness -- just enough bitterness to balance. Only the slightest hint of chocolate, so as not to obscure the lucious maltiness of this world-class brew. Magnificent!

This is the what Dopplebocks are all about. Very malty and fragrant. Sweet yet not cloying. Better than a fine sherry. Very well made beer. I thoroughly enjoy this beer!

Good but not great. Among the doppels this comes a distant 4 or 5. Celebrator is just so far ahead. The good thing about this offering tho is its price tag. Good beer--GREAT price!

didnt taste like the usual german, very sweet for one. I was so freakin drunk when I drank it that I didnt even pour it into a glass. I do believe that the alcohol content is 7.2%, not 7.5% as the site says. I will buy this again.

Well deserving of its world fame. I first had this on tap at Chicago’s Map Room, later bottled; good both ways.

a good dark beer, but lacks the complexity that would set it past the best of its class. Dark and malty with licorice and alcohol overtones. Brought forward through a light body and malty aftertaste. Very good especially for the price, but doesn’t rank too highly among my favorites.

This is the original beer! Check the label - ’Since 1397’(!) Everything else came after. This is a beer that counts. 2 shovels dig your grave twice as fast. Best enjoyed when alternating with Carlsberg Elephants.

This was hyped up as one of the world’s best dopplebocks. I am used to Augustinerbrau Maximator and it just doesn’t compare. I don’t find this to taste bad, but it was not worth all the hype.
