Nuffield (3761) - 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 (1546) - 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 (3395) - 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 (663) - 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.

Pours a dark brown-reddish colour. Aromas of raisin. Cassis too. Pretty interesting beer.

chris__hartley (291) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2012
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.

radiomgb (2463) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
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.
