Bottle. The pour was a medium-dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown head that diminished quickly and had poor lacing. The aroma was of a toasted bread malt and a doughy yeast with notes of caramel, molasses, dark fruit (raisins and plums) and a slight metallic smell. The taste was lightly sweet and malty throughout with a note of caramel early on and had notes of dark fruit and a mild alcohol presence at the finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a slight metallic fruity flavor left behind. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery yet just a tad dry in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall a pretty basic Doppelbock with a slightly bland flavor...

My bottle says malt liquor. And I picked it up in the hood. Brings me back to college days when we would go to the heidleburg and grab one of these bad boys. Taste is light. Sweet. Hint of toffee on the backend. Rather enjoyable for a dopplebock really. Smell is lighter. Toffee apple. For a higher abv beer this goes down dangeriously easy. Really not a bad beer.

Brown color. Smells of fresh baked bread. Surprising light body for its size. Sweet and malty. Perfect touch of hops. Tastes of coffee and dark bread. Yummers.

Eructoblaster (3477) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
On tap at Der Biergarten (Atlanta, GA). Dark copper body with an average, lasting, beige foamy head. Decent malty aroma with hoppy, woody, and brown sugar hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries woody, beown sugar, and fruity notes. Ends with a warming, sweet/woody finish. Good stuff.

355 ml bottle @ hotel room, Los Angeles.
Pours dark amber color with a small head. Granola aroma, malts, some dark berries and sugar. Sugar flavor, malty, syrupy and some rotting soul remnants from the all real Dobbel Bocks.

lusikka (7622) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
330 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Los Angeles, CA. Pours a dark Brown colour with a small head. Aroma of heavy sweet toffee, bread and earthiness. Flavour of breakfast cereal, bread, heavy syrupy sweetness and mild grassy bitterness. Very sweet. Far from a good doppelbock.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Los Angeles. Aroma has grain, some roastiess and cereal. Also raisins. Flavour is very sweet with sticky malt, raisins, ripe fruits and artifical chocolate. Oh wow, this is the most sweet beer I have had for a while. Drinkability is rather bad.
