Brigadier (2900) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2009
12 oz bottle **Summary** - Yet another gift from Santa I saved this one for a cold afternoon when it was not possible to get out of the house. It was a decent winter warmer and what one would expect from a dopplebock. I would call it slightly above average overall. **Aroma / Appearance** - A one finger head surfaced as the walnut colored liquid flowed into my glass. The smell of chestnuts, chocolate, fig, and cherry pulp was an intriguing combination. A bit thin for a dopplebock it lowered my expectations. **Flavor / Palate** - All was not lost because as soon as I took a sip I discovered a smooth blend of cherry, chocolate, and iced coffee. Somewhere oak sneaks in before a moist coconut finish. I do not think this is one to age unless you like declining beers. If you come across this drink it as soon as possible.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Bottle. Toffee sweet nose for aroma. Dark amber body with beige head and some lacing. Flavor start out in sweet dopplebock fashion with a strong bitter bite. Bitter subsides and a caramel toffee sweet candy flavor is there. Rather thin brew and a bit too sweet for me.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 5, 2009
12 oz bottle from blindeyedbetty, my brew babe extraordinaire. Clear coppery amber with a light tan head. Nose is sweet nuts and earth, something smoky and a dash of toffee. Very deep nutty flavors, caramel and a mild hint of chocolate. Wisps of smoke. Somewhere in there , something is off, but I can’t put a finger on it. Really shows in the finish, like a spoiled chestnut. Really nice beige lace. I can’t decide to like or hate this puppy.

daknole (8946) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle. Amber pour. Aroma is very sweet with notes of caramel, sark fruits and spices. Flavor isnt what I expected to be honest. Sweet and malty with a heavy dose of caramel. Not bad, but not what it could of been.

I love a good doppelbock, but this wasn’t one. Very disappointed as I don’t think I’ve ever had an ’average’ doppelbock before. ’Enjoyed’ at Squatters in Salt Lake City.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Deepred-brown pour with a foamy and lacy tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, toffee, brown sugar and ripe fruit. Nice flavor of smooth sweet malt, toasted nuts brown sugar and a touch of fruit. A touch watery on the palate, but nicely carbonated. A little alcohol and spice linger on the finish. A very nice brew.

12 oz bottles from State Liquor Store (SLC) and Douglas88. Nose of brown sugar, vanilla, caramel, and a background plum note; dark rusty red with a medium beige head; flavor has some coffee, caramel, nuts, and fruitiness. Finish is a very light bitterness and alcohol warmth.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Bottled, thanks to Eric! Poured clear iced tea brown with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma was toasty with caramel and brown sugar at the forefront.. touch of beet sugar and alcohol warmth on the back. The flavor opened with sour darker fruit skins that came out of nowhere.. aged, dry caramel carried the middle and really dried out the palate.. grainy brown sugar and leafy bitterness found the edges.. finished short, but warm and spicy, leaving peppery alcohol on the lips. Medium-bodied and fleeting on the palate. very dry.. some nice components in there, but it struck me as powerfully average overall.
