JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - OCT 2, 2009
12 oz bottle - Pours a fairly clear orange/amber color with smallish tan head. Aroma is somewhat floral, with rose water and honey up front, fair amount of light caramel and toasted malts, hints of mint, lemon zest, and tobacco. Flavor is malty, dry, with caramel and faint oak, lemon, earthy notes. Finish is just towards the sweet side of balanced. Overall this is pretty decent - not amazing, but not bad.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - MAR 24, 2010
Pours a clear brown with a quickly diminishing, off-white head. Roasty caramel nose. Molasses and caramel taste. Warm tasting brew. Not too bad but a little weak on flavor.

Deep copper, clear, beige head. Aroma of bready Munich malt, a little toffee sweetness, a little malt-driven dark fruit aroma. Flavor: bread crusts, toffee, toasty notes, some brown sugar, moderate bitterness.

highibus (721) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Pours deep red almost mahogany with white head. Only light malty aroma. Flavor smacks you with wonderful malt sweetness. Clean finish, a reallt nice deep bock. I have not liked much from this brewery, but this isgreat.

J_man (699) - Tustin, California, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Definite aroma of a German bock style beer with strong sweet malt aromas and that "thing" that makes it German (diacetyl?) Crystal clear brown/orange/amber that reminds me of whiskey and a low volume white head. Immediate bock flavor with a light candied sweetness and buttery taste and feel. This is followed by a balancing hop bitterness that matches the sweetness of the malt perfectly. Finishes with a lasting sweetness and woody sour/bitterness on the tongue. If I didn’t know it was from Utah, I’d swear I was drinking a German lager. Delicious!

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2009
Pours dark amber to near brown with generous tan head. Nose is somewhat faint, malty. On the palate this dopplebock comes across as a "dopplebock light". Unlike most Utah beers, this one is not within the 3.2% limit, but they seemed to have matched the lack of flavor profile that is so common in Utah beers. Malt is lighter, faint caramel, some berry syrup flavors, maple, and a short finish. Body is surprisingly light. Not a good example of this style.

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.
