It pours mahogany with dark brown highlights; the head is frothy and off-white. The aroma has notes of: prunes, dark-chocolate, nutmeg, cloves, and pumpernickel bread. The taste is medium sweet that finishes dry; there are notes of: stewed prunes, dark-chocolate, cardamom, alcohol, and cloves. The palate is medium bodied, a little bit watery, and a medium finish. Overall, could use more body for a Doppelbock – however still quite tasty.

Copper-brown in colour with a thin but lasting beige head, excellent lacing. The aroma is sweet and malty, dark fruits, toffee and raisins. The flavour is moderately sweet, toffee, plums, some roasted malts. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long and sweet.

Quite sweet, very malty. Its not bad.

650ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario.
Opened on July 13, 2012.
No date.

Enjoyable brew. Pours hazy dark brown. Sweet malty nose and taste. Very smooth and easy drinking. Not mind blowing but a well crafted doppelbock.

Eructoblaster (2958) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2012
Bottle - 650ml. Hazy brown body with an average, diminishing off-white foamy/bubbly head. Enjoyable, strong malty/hoppy aroma with toffee, fruity and some yeasty hints. Taste is well balanced. It carries brown sugar, woody, and fruity notes. Ends with a warming bittersweet finish. Good stuff.

Metalchopz (2216) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Purchased bomber of this at the LCBO (part of a bunch of Tree Brewing beers that made it here). Pours a clean copper colour with an off-white head that creates thick lacing and a nice coat over the brew. Alcohol is present in the aromas with some mild caramel malts, dark fruits (raisins), nuts, apples and light roasted malts. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel (when head is sipped). The alcohol is not as apparent in the taste. So are the other things though. Very mild burnt sugars, dark fruits and malts. Pretty mild overall, but gets better when eating salty snacks.

Thanks to my friend Simon that helped me with that one while camped at Lac Poisson Blanc. Aromas are not sticking out enough but we can pick-up a bit of caramel,biscuit and molasses. We can also feel very slight wood accents and anise Alcohol is too present. Appearance is lightly cloudy brown with generous creamy head, good lacing and average lasting. Taste is definitely on field berry accents; raspberry, cherry and cassis mainly. Caramel is backing the fruit flavors. body is medium and the finish has too much alcohol in it. Very interesting fruit flavors but not persistant enough because of the alcohol finish.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Pours a dark reddish brown. Aromas are bread and yeast. Some sweet raisin aromas too. Nice thicker mouthfeel...a bit sticky. Some sweet malty flavours up front, boozy finish. Pretty good.

shaynsawchuk (435) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2012
650 mL bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with a tight off white head. Deep caramel toffee aromas, with raisin, almond and fudge. Big, sweet and malty to start, some hops and spices on the slightly bitter finish. Slightly sour on the aftertaste. Rich and smooth on the palate, this is a pretty big beer. Good flavors and aromas, crying out for smoked meats or rich stews.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2012
Nice sweet malty aroma and pours a rich hazy reddish brown. Large head that dissipates fairly quickly. Some sweetness, but the overall impression is of malt with some hoppiness. Sweetness lingers, but not long enough to be cloying. A very, very nice brew.
