Theydon_Bois (9990) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at the Hey Merchant, Houston, 21/05/13. Mahogony brown with a medium light tan head which retains well. Nose is dark toffee, dark fruit, malty, sugars, light boozey notes. Taste comprises dark toffee, a little booze, dates, raisens, dark malts, toasted brown bread. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sweet boozey finish with a pinch of spice. A good take on the style !

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle... March 08 Tampa Bay Tasting... Clear, dark copper lager with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic, never-ending retention. Lactic, vinous nose with prominent, awkward, berry essences. Full-bodied and creamy with ticklish carbonation. Sweet, fruity flavor delivers a truckload of unidentified berries with plenty of alcohol warmth and bitterness. Moderately bitter, boozy finish. Strange brew... maybe past its prime.

adnielsen (9479) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up somewhere in New Mexico. I had a really godawful Doppelbock early, so I wasn’t really in the mood for this but what the hell. Pours a clear brown appearance with a tan head. A bit woody smoky, dark caramel, slightly nutty aroma. Rich nutty, light toffee, toasty malty, kind of grainy, herbal flavor that dries out a bunch on the finish. Ok.

daknole (9467) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle. Amber pour. Aroma is very sweet with notes of caramel, sark fruits and spices. Flavor isnt what I expected to be honest. Sweet and malty with a heavy dose of caramel. Not bad, but not what it could of been.

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.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle at Freakin’ Frog in Las Vegas. The beer is a murky mahogany color with a medium tan head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, molasses and dark malt. Medium body with flavors of earthy malt, caramel and dark fruit. Faint hops in the background. The finish is sweet and malty with a ripe fruit aftertaste. Decent overall.

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
A yeasty dark strong lager with noticeably unclean fermentation: metal, mold, higher alcohols, dark caramel malt, cola, plum and apple hooch, vegetables / canned corn / DMS. Solvent and oily alcohol on the palate. Sweet and chalky with a limp, watery body. Shamefully bad!

shrubber85 (7977) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle. Raisin, caramel and bready malt aroma. Brown with small head. Sweet raisin bread malt and and lightly bitter herbal flavor. Body on the lighter side.

crossovert (7977) - Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2011
12 oz bottle. Born on: 03/24/11. It pours a lighter reddish brown with a foamy off-white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing. Smell is weaker and more like a brown ale than a doppelbock. The flavor is also more reminiscent of an ale than a lager. It is roasty and chocolatey, far too much to be considered a doppebock. It is an okay american dark lager.
