Tried this in the Salt Lake City Airport. Roasted caramel in the aroma, sweet in the taste with some grains and caramel, some fruit too. Smooth and just as good as the Sam Adams variety of this.

Decent head, doesn’t last very long. Amber color. Smells is sweet malt, caramel. Low carbonation.Like Mcox90 said "Taste is sweet malt with caramel and a touch of chocolate." Nice brew with good abv. One of the better, easy to find beers in Utah.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a modest, off-white head.
Aroma: Bready malt, dry dead leaves.
Taste: Bready and caramel malts, fruitiness. Ends with typical bitterness from the style.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, almost thick.
Overall: Not a bad "double bock." I like it a little more complex than this, but definitely drinkable.

Not an great beer. I had hope for this when I got it off the shelf. Hope was lost. Not much to the aroma. Clear brown color goes with the watery taste I got

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of Douglas88. Pours a lovely claret color with a small receding off white head. Nose is sweet with malt and caramel being the primary aromas. Low carbonation with a heavy mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet malt with caramel and a touch of chocolate. 8% alcohol really warms the senses, or dulls them, as the brew warms.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Aroma of sweet malt and something rather putrid. Flavor of sweet malt with some graininess. Somewhat bitter finish. Unimpressive.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a small white head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Flavor of coffee grounds, smooth sweet malt, and some bitterness in the finish. Pretty good (although it lacks the typical bready/doughy malts of a doppelbock).
