v1rgil (151) - Burnaby, British Columbia, - MAY 24, 2012
Pours mahogany brown thick creamy off white head that stays Aroma is sweet malty scent with slight hop smell in there First sip is sweet malty: caramel and toffee notes a bit saltiness and a bit fruit like. Very good beer. Don’t taste the alcohol much Aftertaste is like caramel apple. Caramel fruit esters.

codfishh (52) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2014
Poured from a 600ml bottle, hazy orangey brown. Thin tan head, disappears quickly. Aroma is raisin and toasty malt. Flavor is big and malty sweet with lots of dark fruit, not flying but definitely a sweet rich Beer.

exeter (236) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
A deep red with an inch of head. Small amount of toffee malts and fruity yeast on the nose. The taste is tart fruit, grapes and figs, no alcohol is noticeable. No trace of hops. The mouth feel is full but light and easy to drink.

ljthiessen (308) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle. Clear, deep red-brown pour with a frothy beige head. Roasty malt aromas, a bit of toffee. Very malty flavour, some caramel and toffee, and a light hoppy edge. Quite a nice doppelbock.

pictoman (427) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
Poured from 650mL bottle. Clear, auburn brown with beige head. Subtle bitterness and sweetness leads to a complex, but lacking in a good balance. Seems it doesn’t quite know what it wants to be. I like it, but it’s missing something I can’t quite put my finger on. Some caramel, nuts, and resin.

Very creamy and smooth, leaves the palate clean, slightly sweet, but not too sweet. Does not have high alcohol flavour. Caramel notes. Best doppelbock I’ve ever had.

crazy_cat_lady (108) - - FEB 3, 2014
January 3, 2014. 650mL bottle from LCBO some time ago, pulled from our ’cellar’. Raisins in aroma and taste. Lovely brown colour in glass. Lingering lager taste very minimal. Very nice dopplebock.

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
650 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours clear caramel with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of caramel, brown sugar and nutty malts, along with a touch of herbal hops. The flavour is moderately sweet with nutty malts, brown sugar and caramel, along with touches of apple, herbs and spice. The finish is long and malty with hops and a slight pepper. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent Doppelbock, with nice balance and nutty malts. 2013-05-04

Bottle. Sweet cereal grain aroma with some pumpernickel and a touch of hay hops. Clear chestnut under a tawny, of white patch and ring. Sweet nutty caramel flavour with faint noble hops and light bitterness. Plenty of dried fruit. Medium body, moderate carbonation, clean finish.

Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2013
Bottle. Murky brown red pour. surprisingly short soap scum head. Nose of raisin butter tarts, booze, and a bit of yeasty cheese funk. Bit of beef bullion. Some Diacytl. Soft carbonation. May be infected. I’ll drink the rest anyway.
