2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a mahagony color with a off white/brownish head. Malty aromas (caramel). Tastes like it smells. Sweet beginning. Alcohol well hidden. I’m not sure if I am a Doppelbock fan or not, but this beer didn’t do it for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Firewaters in Atlantic City. This brew pours a dark brownish-amber color with a thin off-white head that dissipates fairly fast. Spotty lacing throughout. Roasted malt aroma with hints of alcohol and raisins. Medium, smooth body with sweet malt and caramel flavors, accompanied by notes of hops here and there. The finish is on the sweet side with caramel and malt, followed by touches of hops and a bit of burning alcohol. Above average Doppelbock for my money.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz brown bottle. Bottled 07/23/10.
It pours a nice reddish brown with a foamy off-white head. The head stick sfor a bit and recedes to a bit of nice lacing.
This is a fruity, alcoholic smelling doppelbock. Really heavy on the fruit. It is basic but pleasant.
The flavor is also fruity, but with a huge kick of sweet caramel. Layers of caramel hit you and the sweetness while high, isn’t too overbearing. The dark fruits accent it well bringing to mind some fine bon bons.
Of course it pales in comparison to Salvator, but it can compete surprisingly with some of the other German doppelbocks, very nice from Troeegs.
