Brown body, light brown head. Aroma of malts, apples, peach, fig, cookies with a bit of bitterness. Taste is medium sweet, full-bodied, a bit cookie-like with roasted notes of coffee and caramel. The alcohol adds a fruity aftertaste.

Pint nine bottle poured dark brown with off white head that doesnít linger. Nice aroma of roasted malts, bread, sweet caramel. Medium bodied, flavor,was very good nice roasted malt flavor mixed with some sweetness. Flavor wise its not really caramel though, joust sweet from the malt. Very well balanced and delicious.

Bought a bottle at Bertís Bierhuis. Has a dark brown colar and a large cream colored head, is highly carbonated. Aroma of caramel, bread and some dark fruits. Taste is a little sweet and creamy and has a light bitter in the aftertaste. I would definitely drink this one again. I my opion one of the better Doppelbocks.

Just had my first one. I will certainly get this again when I have a taste for a real good Bock. Love their original brew better, but this is a excellent change of pace beer.

Bottle pours deep brown, decent carbonation. Figgy malty aroma yields a similar flavor profile. Sweet but not cloying, earthy malty finish. Good hearty dopplebock, but not too heavy as some are.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled October 20, 2012.
Appearance: The body has a beautiful color, crystal clear and garnet. The head is tall with moderate density, slowly settling into a dense light tan coating.
Aroma: Deep caramel and biscuit malt notes are backed by hints of raspberry and apple. The aroma is mild in presence, but smells malty with hints of fruit, perfect.
Taste: Bready and caramel malts are on the intro that become rather prominent by the end of the mid-taste where they are met by hints of cherry and apple by the finish. Nice!
Palate: Thick with mild carbonation.
Overall: This is a great doppelbock, I would love to try this fresher! Iíll buy this often!
