Sometimes I wonder why I go for doppel- (or other strong) bocks. In this case, coming from Walking Man helped. aroma of toasted wheat bread (how the toaster chars the sugar) with non-maple syrup. still sweet in the flavor with some woodsy hos & a little smoke.

A nice doppelbock with a roasty flavor that, while nice, is unfortunately overpowered by a too bitter hoppy backbone. It makes the beer off style and not as pleasant for me as most doppelbocks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light brownishred with a thin head and decent lacing. Aromas of fruity darker malts, caramel, chocolate, and a touch of roast. Fruity caramel sweetness accompanied by dry roasted darker malts. Medium to lively carbonation with light warming sensations. Drinks very well.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2008
7/19/08 On draught at the Brewpub. Aroma is molasses with dark dried fruit and lots of roast. Appearance is clear amber brown with a well maintained cream colored head. Flavor is more roast with rich bittersweet caramel malt. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with a medium carb texture. Overall, big and complex and just not that easy drinking.

after4ever (7620) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Draft at Brouwer’s. Pours grainy, cloudy dark brown with caramel highlights. Thick, creamy, dense tan head. Big dry biscuity nose with resinous hop showing through very faintly. Creamy medium body. Crisp woody notes, resin, and biscuit on the mid-palate. Has that Bigfoot-ish woodiness to the flavor profile, almost tastes like a BA from fresh oak; definitely no bourbon or anything in it though.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear dark amber with reddish lights. Aroma of fruit, cola, caramel. Sweet nutty taste that mostly mirrors the aroma. Finishes with a bit of pine.

On tap at Green Dragon in Portland, OR--Poured a deep brown-chestnut body with a malty, sweet, nutty flavor. Hoppy in the finish and well balanced. Alcohol greatly masked. Very good beer!

2008 Spring Beer Festival. Pours darker red/brown, cloudy when held up to see through it. Malty nose, fruity with a toasty cereal and sort of dry chocolate muffin flavor, kinda hard to describe, but good. Finishes hopped up and a bit yeasty like the keg might have been stirred a bit.
