This beer is what I judge all beers by. I consider it the best. A dark beer that’s not bitter and full of flavor. It tastes so good I drink it without food or anything that would affect the taste. Nice sedative on an empty stomach too.

Good, easy drinking but still rich doppelbock. Coffee and light roast. Thick creamy consistency. Black pour with some mocha head and lacing. Good balance. Bottle from total wine.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 This beer brings our my German ancestry. Even though it is dark it does not taste too bitter and just malty enough. Fortunately it is available at Gustav?s Bargarten in Keizer and sometimes through the local Roth?s IGA stores.

Copper color, clear.
Light body and flavor, good length.
Slightly sweet, enough acidity, low bitterness.
Malty, sweet spices, cinammon, yeasty.
Pleasant, good example of the style.

Rich, dark, amber pour with a short khaki head. Faint toffee nose. Mildly rich mouthfeel with ample carbonation. Toffee, fruity, and faint horehound.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Sweet, sharp malt aroma. Dark beer but translucent. Moderate head. I’m not impressed with this beer and only rated it after trying it several times.

One of my favorite beers, not too heavy but complex, nice head and color, malty aftertaste but still has that spaten taste in think from the hops, will always buy again

Clean malt liquor aroma. Crystal clear dark orange/amber with a very fine head. Creamy, smooth body with lots of roasted malt flavor. Slight wood flavor with sweet cream and a hint of vanilla. Light molasses and caramel sweetness. Earthy, leafy hop bitterness comes out from under the sweetness and the finish is a combination of both. Delicious doppelbock and definitely a classic. Happy German Beer Day 2015 everyone!

Bottle at home. Great choice for a rainy, cool spring evening. Pours an appealing but not imposing dark and somewhat opaque brown with a small tan head. Super roasty and malty which leaves overall impression as sweet. Nutty and earthy as well. Reminiscent of pumpernickel bread or dark caramel. Pretty smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Great example of the style. Alcohol level well hidden- easy drinker for almost 8%.
