Nice bready, malty aroma. Very clear amber with very little head that did not linger. Very subtly alcoholic, malty sweetness with low bitterness in the finish. Clean and well fermented beer. Excellent.

tillmac62 (181) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Pours a dark ruby red, almost brown, with a good head and lacing. The nose is dark fruit (plums, raisins), caramel and toffee against a sweet biscuit background. As it warms, prunes are at the forefront. Full medium body with a nice smooth texture that approaches slick. The carbonation level is low normal. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with dark fruit, progresses to toffee/caramel and ends with a rich toasty sweetness. The finish is smooth with a nice burst of sweetness and a slight tingle of alcohol at the back of the throat. An outstanding doppelbock.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle - Pours a very dark brown with a nice off-white head. Aromas of hay and grass. It’s a healthy 7.6% alcohol, but it has a nice smooth flavor with more hop bite than I’d expect based on the aroma. Nice beer.

Characteristic fruitiness, mild vanilla, medium hop bite, mild astringency, thin head. Very well balanced, real nice mouth feel. Classic Doppelbock.

Pours a deep drown with a medium off white head. Aroma of sweet malts and caramel. Tatse is malt dominant with a good caramel flavor, finish is well balanced with hops. Great beer, well crafted.
