bunget (688) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
650ml bottle. A gorgeous cloudy amber-brown body, good mocha head with a decent retention. Aroma of caramel, sweet dough, cinnamon, coriander, toffee, floral. Taste of caramel, kvass yeast, rye bread, maple syrup, malt and dried apples. A bit of an alcohol touch at the end. Full body, slick texture, carbonation is pretty flat. A really nice doppelbock.

Radek Kliber (6691) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 27, 2012
Aroma:sweet malty with maple syrop notes, some dryness from alcohol.
Look:fine haze on maple amber. Ligher creamy top.
Taste etc: medium bodied with fuller walls. Malty, syrupy - maple like. Carbonation low. Sweet malty approach but not in Euro doppel way.

Frothmeister (633) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
650ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark ruby with a light brown head. Aroma is red fruit heavy, with spices, red wine, (and a sugary scent I associate with hard fruit candies). The taste is sweet, with again, red fruits, malt undertones, faint molasses, woody/earthy notes, and bitter finish that has just a little bit of sourness. A very fruit bock, and entirely different than I was expecting. This would be a perfect beer for the Xmas holidays. Solid.

Bomber from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 23JN12.

App.: Slightly hazy deep copper with a thin light tan head. Aroma: Richly malty, boozy, lots of dark dried fruits, dark rum, brown sugar, fruity, vanilla, rich and sweet. Palate: Medium body, silky, elegant, very velvety effervescence, lovely. Flav.: Boozy, dark dried fruits, minty herbals, a touch woodsy, rich and sweet, nice; sweet with a little bitterness and a long, lingering brown sugar finish.

Captivating...

Nuffield (3858) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Not a great doppelbock but still a good beer. Pours with a nice, rich color and the flavor gives a rich maltiness. The palate is moderately to above average in frothiness, with a decent body behind it. The flavor is malty and toffee without a depth in the dimensions you would get from a good ale (porter/stout). Fine, but not great. Bomber bought in Toronto.

DerWeg (1563) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
Yup getting the nutty, caramel-date-vanilla toffee flavors & aromas.Reddy brown dark clear look, off white head, full body and barely smoothed in alcohol, good to drink it a bit cold.

robinvboyer (3568) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2012
Dark brown pour with a small beige head, and lots of floaters. Lots of bready malts in the aroma with some minerals, soft grains, cereals, and quite a bit of alcohol. The carb is soft, and same for the mouthfeel. The finish is sweet, some decent toffee notes, and sme light roasted nuts, with more alcohol.

AGAquino (665) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2012
650ml bottle from the LCBO. Nice aroma of, caramel and raisins, not as thick a mouthfeel as you get from an Aventinus, but a good beer.
