750ml bottle. Reddish brown pour, small head. Aroma is rich malts, toffee and raisan. Malty sweat taste with some toffee. Smooth yet complex. Velvety feel. Mild carbonation. Very good start to finish.

A family favorite. Aroma is red apple peel, some toffee, and a corn syrup malt extract (in a good way). Pours deep red brown with no head but noticeable carbonation. Taste is sweet with instant iced tea, apple peel, and malt. Very easy on the palette despite the ABV and dangerously easy to chug. Still a dependably great brew.

750ml bottle from Jesterdeal. Older bottling. Thanks. Pours a dark brown color with a minimal off-white head that quickly dissipates to fine ring. The aroma is quite pungent with rich malts, caramel, toffee and some molasses. The flavor mirrors the aroma, lots of complex toffee, caramel, molasses, raisins and dark roasted grains. The palate is full and viscous with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering toffee. Overall: one of the best dopplebocks I have ever sampled. Good stuff, highly recommended for lovers of this style.

Dark orange with small off white head. Aroma brown sugar, bread, candied fruits. Medium full body, strong warm alcohol presence. Flavors of molasses, caramel, citrus, dark dried fruits. Pretty sweet. Some good flavors here but I thought with this one the alcohol was not well hidden and interfered too much.

Bottle shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff! 2008 Vintage A: This beer appears a burnt orange hue, perhaps slightly dark brown. The head stands in at an eighth inch and leaves some good lacing in its wake. S: The aroma is pleasant and consists of lager malt, caramels, brown sugar, and toffee. T: A delicious bock beer. Well balanced and full of flavor, this one is not too sweet or hot. Delectable toffees and sweet breads, along with caramels in soaked in alcohol. M: Surprisingly smooth and creamy, it seems as though a few years of aging has worked some magic on this beer, though I have no point of reference. D: Very tasty. I easily consumed my half of the 750 mL bottle. Would definitely drink again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-01-2011

750mL bottle, quite old. Poured crystal-clear, deep coppery-amber with a dusting of smoked tan head.. nice color to it. The aroma picked up warm, aged molasses, caramel, chewy dark bread, and a hint of chocolate.. alcohol amplified, and did nothing but help enhance the goodness. The flavor found similar stuff.. aged molasses, maple, and rye bread at the core, with peppery alcohol and warm, slightly jammy dark fruits around.. a little acidity helped guide the deliciousness through the finish. Heavier-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. felt great.. loved it!

This one has been sitting in my cellar for a few years. Dark amber pour, thin lasting brown head. Very nice big aroma of molasses and brown sugar. Smooth drinking, no hint of alcohol or boozy taste. Sweet. Make a nice after dinner sipper. Very malty, taste of dark fruit and molases. Iím going to get a fresh one to compare but really enjoyed this one with a little age.

I donít remember much about this one, other than thinking it was a bit weird that we had to pay an extra 50 cents to taste it during a tasting of beers on tap at the brewery/vineyard. My guess is that it was higher in alcohol? Seems like commonplace these days... Most of their beer was pretty forgettable.

Bottle, as pictured, purchased a few months ago. Poured a pretty deep mahogany brown, though not opaque. A good dark fruity sweetness to it without the spicy notes of a tripel/quad. Really easy to drink for the style, didnít feel the alcohol content either.

Pours a dark, dark amber with near zero head. Slightly oily taste of overly sweet licorice, raisins and plum with low carbing. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and grainy. For my taste if the SG was dropped a bit at the end to ease the sweetness and dry it out just a tad it would improve the overall flavor.
