Very dark ruby. Faint head. Very good malt nose. Tons of malt in this one. Very nice. Maybe the best American dopplebock I have ever had. Very impressive.

Draught at 11th Southern Brewers Festival in Chattanooga. Pours dark brown with a huge tan foamy head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with fruit hop notes (prune, plum, raisin). Roasted caramel chocolate malt flavor with faint hoppy prune flavors and low acidity. Medium bodied and fizzy palate.

Nice stouty beer here. Brown black, with an good head. Malty to there core and very creamy. Two things it lacks...1.) the dopple part, alochol 2.) a better yeast. Once these damn ABV laws clear they have the foundation for a great beer. South Carolina, baby!

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2005
This poured dark chestnut, with a fluffy foamy tan head. Sweet nose with traces of spce and orange cinamin, and roasted malts. This tasted very spice, I would swear this to be a winter warmer, if not for the alcohol wamrth lacking. The flavors swirl from chocolate to cinamin to syrup sweetness tofruit. Why is this rated so low? for being off style, or people not liking spices?

jsquire (4067) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2005
This beer glows a ruby/garnet color when held up to the light, with an initial foamy beige head that shrinks to a lasting slick and leaves good lace. Sweet malt syrup nose with hints of burnt toast. Lots of dusty chocolate, some coffee, roast grains and an almost berry tartness as it warms. Finish is more coffee and bitter chocolate on the tongue. Okay beer.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Bottle courtesy of Suttree: Darky brown body with a small, but thick, tan head that fades to a thin layer that sticks atop the beer. When held to the light the body shines a dark ruby. The aroma is molasses, grapes, dark fruit, chocolate, and mild coffee. The taste is chocolate with a hint of roasted malt, bitter coffee, molasses (but not sweet), and a hint of dark fruit. Finish is bitter chocolate and coffee. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, somewhat thin in the mouth.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Draft at Music City Brewer’s Fest. Dark brown in color, with a small but frothy light brown head that fully diminished. To the nose, a light molasses aroma with some hints of dough also. The taste had a light bitterness to it with molasses and hint of coffee standing out. Light to medium body.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2005
Pours a dark ruby brown with a very thin head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is predominately hoppy with a little malt. Easy-drinking brew, thin, and simple, though not bad at all (just not what I expect from a Dopplebock). Mild coffee flavor with floral hops. $$

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Pours a dark brown, small off white head, no lacing. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruit, malty. Flavor is smilar, really not bad at all. Flavor is somewhat rounded and full, good palate.

A Dopplebock brewed in sub 6% South Carolina seems like a very novel concept to me, and when I saw this new arrival on the shelves in Georgia, I had to snag a six pack to see how close they could get. The beer poured out dark brown, bordering on black, and had a really small head and very little carbonation. The lacing was sparse and thin. The smell was not malty and floral like a Dopplebock, but more like a chocolaty roasty Porter, or a Belgian Dubbel. The taste again confirmed the lack of malt in this beer. Roasty, chocolaty, grainy, soured, and a little burnt in the taste profile, this was more or less like a Schwartzbier to me. The flavors were not bad, but were just no match for the real thing. There was no explosion of fruity notes and grassy hop bitterness here at all. All I could detect was a steady and simple mix of the more basic flavors. The thin body and the lack of strength made this a drinkable beer. Judged on its own merit, it is not half bad. But slapping a label proclaiming the contents to be a well known style does not make it so. And just for that atrocity, a few points were shaved off the rating.
