Reddish/brown clear, tan head, strong malt aroma with a hint of hops, flavor is intensely rich and malty, sweet, finish is light and slightly astringent... however not unpleasant... quite a good beer.

Pours a deep brown but still transparent. A nice frothy head sits atop. Amazing toffee sweetness and an alcohol bite make this a must try.

Had this at a beer tasting in Washington DC and the small sampling did not do it justice. Noticably malty aroma with a smooth, smokey flavor. Finished fruity and slightly sweet.

Did not have that strong Doppelbock sting to the flavor. Smooth drinking with nice malty taste.

I'm not impressed. Red, quickly diminishing head. Smells dry and ashy, but it tastes somewhat medicinal, like Robitussin. Not much like most dopplebock's I've had, but there's also a lot of alcohol to hide.

Very well masked alcohol - a little bitter for a doppelbock, but still has its share of malty sweetness - not what I was expecting, but still good - light and easy drinking for the style.

A really pleasant doppelbock, but a very light one. I'd actually consider it a bock. Didn't taste the alcohol at all.

Deep red color and thin. Sweet syrupy aroma. Interestingly mellow 'til the finish when it takes on a vaguely mediciney appeal, but in a pleasant way. Damn good!

Growler bottled from tap. Striking clarity. Frankly quaffable double bock, with perhaps more hops than are often seen in examples of this style. All the malt you'd want. Thanks be to LiebeBier for lugging this back from Downingtown.
