Heat99 (56) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2001
This beer poured a very dark cloudy brown with plentiful head. It had a sweet fruity aroma with what I could have sworn was a hint of spiciness, but the spice did not carry through into the flavor or palate. Instead, it was extremely malty...right down to the lingering finish with hints of apples and bananas. Very refreshing and smooth, but maybe a little too malty.

S_Side_Smitty (547) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2015
Pours a nice clear red-Amber with a thick light tan head. Aroma is heavy molasses and rich malts. Taste is smooth & rich with mellow molasses and heavy malts. Not complex, but very good and ’wet’. There’s a slight tang at the finish.

Zlotta (206) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2015
0,5 l bottle from local trinkgut, best before 20/11/2015 (7.5% abv). Clear, dark brownish ruby with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Lovely, rich aroma of plums, dark cherries, raisins and molasses, accompanied by hints of dark chocolate. Sweet taste of plums, molasses, raisins and cane sugar, followed by a crisp, medium bitter, minimally alcoholic, counterpart finish with hints of dark chocolate. Full body, very chewy, viscous mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Good Doppelbock with a typical sweet and rich taste and a full body. Overall highly satisfying, a very solid winter warmer.

KW92 (208) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 4, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemno miedziana, zamglone. Piana drobna, niska.
AROMAT: Wyraźnie karmelowo-palone. Przypieczona skórka od chleba.
SMAK: Zdecydowanie chlebowo-karmelowy. Goryczka niska. Wysycenie średnie.
OGÓLNIE: Jest wszystko to czego się spodziewałem po tym stylu. Dużo karmelu i dużo "chleba", a wszystko to podbite alkoholem, który w niczym tu nie przeszkadza.

minutemat (1994) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2015
500ml bottle, thanks to McTapps! Pours a deep dark brown with medium tan head. Lots of dark fruits, molasses and roasted malts forming a quintessential doppelbock taste. Enjoyable and a perfect beer on such cold night.

Bottle from Trinkgut in Idstein, Hesse Germany!
Pours dark muddy brown with small head. Smell has dried fruits, caramel and roasted malts. Starts with dark fruits, strong coffee’ish malt notes and some chocolate. Finish is warming, malty-spicy with some coffee and caramel. Nice one!

Chopper925 (264) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Clear red-brown color, medium lacing Brown head. Aroma is nice chocolate, coffee roast flavour. Strong sweetness and ethanolic taste, harsh bitterness. Aftertaste is somewhat dull, I’ve expected a lot more. Medium to thick texture, flat carbonation.

Moravius (722) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) von einer Getränke-Hoffmann-Filiale, Berlin. - Dunkles Rubinrot, klar; kurzlebiger Schaum. - Geruch sirupsüß dunkelmalzig mit leicht holziger Herbe und deutlichem Fusel. - Antrunk dunkelmalzig und plump süß wie Rübensirup; grobschlächtige Karamel- und Röstaromen. Durchschnittlich rezent, vollmundig aber nicht klebrig. Im Abgang herb-krautige Hopfenbittere. Recht kräftiger, derb bitterer Nachtrunk und überdeutlicher Alkohol. - Sehr eindimensionaler Bock: erst karamelsüß, dann derb bitter, zuletzt faulig-fuselig. Zeitverschwendung.

rotaman14 (259) - Potsdam, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2014
Dark brown body with an amber touch and ab off-white head. Typical aromas of a Doppelbock, with raisins, dough, herbs and some citrus. A bit of caramel too. Bittersweet flavour, with an alcoholic finish. The body is medium to heavy, and the alcohol is hidden badly. Not a great Doppelbock.
