Reviewed from notes on 07/07/10 $2 for 33cl @ Huck’s in Spokane, WA. Poured from bottle to snifter. A: Pours dark cherry brown with excellent clarity. No head, appears flat. S: Smells like a symphony bar! Toffee, cocoa, toast. Very pleasant. T: Surprisingly bitter given the nose. Rye toast, cocoa, toffee still there, just not as evident as before. Slight earthen flavor. M: Low carb flows well over tongue and after sweetness feel, but dries quickly and dries with the bitterness. D: A bit thin for the style IMO, prefere a bit more body. Otherwise, strong offering from a classic brewery. Serving type: bottle 12-23-2010

maekchu (2085) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle from AEON Mall Kumiyama. Good toasty malt nose, with light prunes and burnt sugar. Clear brown color with ruby highlights. Light roast malt initial, solid caramel base / alc. warms the palate / finish is fruity, sweet, and smooth. Medium body. A very tasty doppelbock. Not cloying, as some of them tend to be.

ScottWallace82 (64) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle into glass. Pours a clear dark brown with a light tan head. Malty, sweet aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Tastes of dark malt and over ripe fruit with a clean finish. An excellent doppelbock, as long as the ones you grab aren’t light-struck.

bbbeer (586) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Dark brown with light tan head. Aroma caramel malt and some fruit. Medium body. Sweet malt flavor up front, then some cherry-like fruit develops, then the finish is just a little dry. Pretty complex and very well balanced and drinkable. Excellent.

One of the better doppelbocks I’ve had. Deep brown color, thick head, with a rich toffee and cocoa aroma. Sweet and slick on the tongue.

Aromas of toasty caramel malts, a little fruity, and faintly dusty Dark clear mahogany-ruby with a mostly fading off-white head. Dry, with caramel and toast in the forefront, some earthy hops to balance. Light-medium bodied, somewhat creamy, and finishes with notes of vanilla and caramel.
