If you’re going to sin, sin big. With 8% alc/vol and a creamy richness, this brew has developed a serious cult following. Imagine that – a cult following in Utah?!

Ughsmash (7253) - 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.

Rusty (1537) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Pours a brown to reddish brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel and chocolate. Flavor is caramel, malt, toasted nuts, toffee. Thin and watery but still flavorful. Decent bock.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Bottle, from Douglas88. Thanks! Red/brown pour with a deep layer of rough tan bubbles, settling with a bunch of lacing. Dry caramel aroma, raisins, rustic wood, cinnamon. Chalky mineral flavor blended with a nice raw sugar sweetness, raw walnuts, some interesting viney notes along the edges. A bit hot and not as focused as a good German doppel, but a ton of flavor and a very respectable brew.

Bottles from dchmela and footbalm. Thanks guys!
Pours a nice dark clear reddish brown with a smallish beige head. Smell is metal and oxidation perhaps. Taste is chocolatey, toasty bread, and caramel with a light bitterness and a touch of alcohol. Tastes a lot better than it smells, I thought. Medium bodied with normal carbonation.

BelgianBeerGal (3289) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Bottled. 8 ABV from Utah, nice work. Average doppelbock. Pours a clear mahongany colour with a small head. Malty aroma with caramel. Flavour was more caramel malt plus some dusty baking ingredients. Little touch of alcohol too. Okay.

travita (4284) - Frisco, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Red to brown in color with a beige colored head. Clear. Smell is buscuits, caramel, and malts. taste is sweet, caramel, almost nutty. Ok but nothing special.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2008
crystal clear yellowy brown color with a long lasting light tan head. smells quite malty... floral alcohol shows and doesn’t try to hide, grain, chocolate, caramel and toasted nuts. the flavor is quite the same as the aroma... toasty caramel graininess, nuts, chocolate and a dry grainy finish. alcohol is not noticed in the flavor. nutty chocolate-y aftertaste. light to medium body given the abv% and malt sugars... watery mouth feel and an all around ’dead’ texture on the tongue...

hopdog (9461) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2008
12oz bottle acquired in trade with douglas88 (thanks!). Poured a medium copperish color with a smaller sized off white head. Slightly hazy. Aromas of toasted caramel, some roast, toffee, and nuts. Tastes of caramel (lots), ligth chocolate, roast, and nuts. Alcohol content well hidden.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2008
Sampled a bottle at the Bayou in SLC.

Dark ruby/crimson brew, with a thin head with little clumpy islands in the center of my glass.
Dark caramel malts well balanced out by a firm alcoholic nose.
Carbonation is vivid and prickly, taste is quite similar to the smell, with the caramel just enough in the forefront to subdue the alcohol heat, which in turn brings all the flavors together. After drinking that many low ABV Beers, the mouthfeel on this one was quite powerful and I enjoyed it a lot.

LinusStick (2920) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2008
Courtesy Secret Santa. Thanks! A standard doppelbock. Aroma was sweet dark malt, caramel and a hint of roastiness. Pour was a nice hazy medium brown with amber hues and a one finger off white head. Taste was a little stale but pretty good. Sweet and caramel malt, molasses and roasted toffee with a dry aftertaste. Hides the alcohol wonderfully.
