UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 12oz bottle.
Clear amber brew, slight beige head. Aroma is slightly nutty, malty, and some spice (cinnamon?). A bit thin, missing the creamy mouthfeel you usually find in a Doppelbock. Caramel malt with some sweetness and hop bite.

Single from the pub store. Clear dark copper, medium head. Strangely stewed aroma. Very sweet malt taste, almost syrupy. Heavy body, yet has the feel of a soft drink. Not what I was expecting at all.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours red-amber with a creamy off-white head that leave some spotty lacing. Aroma is caramel (almost burnt), molasses, nuts, and light smoke. Flavor shows the same with an additional cherry cola aspect. Overall body is moderately sweet, light to moderately bitter, and finishes with some nice warming alcohol. I did a double take when I realized it came from Utah.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lovely appearance, dark but a bright clear copper red tone. Sweet buttery grainy caramel malts hit you in aroma with a tangy almost sour like kind of citrus. Bit of spice and herbal. Cream brule. Taste is malty citrus, herbal and spice with a tangy finish with citrus. The middle is smooth and rich with carmelly malts, sweet raison,toffee rich buttery and some mild roast character. Sticky sweetness stays in your mouth. I suppose this might be better than the average bock, but still pretty shure this style is not my thing. As I always remind myself everytime I get one once in a blue moon.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Poured a reddish, brown, amber semi-clear color with four fingers of khaki tan, frothy head that immediately started dissipating. Minimal wet lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.75)
Smelled booziness right up front, followed by caramel, plum, roasty malts, honey nuts, toffee and dark red apple. (Smell - 3.88)
Taste was slightly better than the nose, coming in with rich, creamy, roasty malts, caramel, roasty nuts, plum and very light chocolate. The 8 percent ABV is hidden. (Taste - 4.25)
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Smooth finish. (Feel - 4.25)
