PartyFowle (954) - - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle. Mostly clear burgundy hue with a big, frothy tan cap. The aroma: raisins, toast, sourdough, wet grain, red grape. Kind of a weird funk to it. The flavor loses most of the mustiness, replacing it with raisin, brandy and fig up front with toasted biscuits in the back. Lingering roasted malt bitterness. Slick medium-light body with mild carbonation and no trace of the fairly high ABV. A little grainy overall; not a favorite.

JDBaker11058 (1819) - Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2015
appearance: deep, clear dark amber, with half a finger of foamy light tan head that quickly fades to a bubbly collar. aroma: not a hugely strong nose, but there’s elements of toffee and brown sugar, there’s some raisin and a hint of black jelly bean, root beer, and brown bread. taste: big sweet malt bomb; lots of toffee and brown sugar, a dose of root beer and cola, with a hint of leather. notes: malty sweetness lingers, with a bit of rooty molasses the most prominent flavor. notes: This is actually a darn good doppel. Nice sweet malty flavors, but the palate wasn’t overly thick. It wasn’t thin, either, just the right level to handle all that malty sweetness without feeling too heavy. Alcohol is well-hidden. 12 ounce can as a souvenir from Squatters Brewpub in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Nero55 (919) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle. Amber/red with large beige head. Aroma of fruity esters (grape, apple) and malt. Medium body, medium malt sweetness, some mineral notes, caramel, and a malty finish.

stevoj (3771) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Can from HomeBrewStuff. Solid, complete doppelbock, not outstanding, but a great example of the style. Mostly clear brown, small airy head. Nice malty sweetness, drying out towards the end, but still maintaining some pleasant swett taste. Tasty stuff.

Kevin (2191) - New Mexico, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle. Brown with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel and bread. Sweet flavor with cereal flavor with a light nut in the finish. Light berry hints throughout. A nice sipper that is a bit too sweet.

Beaver (1620) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours light ruby brown with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is toasted bready malts with a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet toasted chocolate and caramel nutty malts with some fruit and a little smokiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice doppelbock. A bit too sweet for me.

rjplumer (971) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Caramel nut aroma with roasted malt. Brownish red body with a minimal head. Smooth roasted malt taste with clean caramel malt base. Warming on the palate. Decent finish that is clean, sweet with a hint of nut. Well done for this style.

Strangebrewer (1133) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
bottle. Poured deep reddish-brown with a thinning tan head. Aroma is slightly burnt with an alcohol note. Medium body, average carbonation, a bit of a syrupy mouthfeel. Taste of roasted malt, sweet caramel with vanilla notes, and a touch of warming alcohol at the end.

monk191 (1706) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2015
A quite nice double bock. Pours a deep Amber with a tan head. Smells of malt and vanilla. Taste is sweet, with a bit of booze, vanilla and a sweet marshmallow finish. Had in the bottle at Zion Pizza and Noodle.
