Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2008
This is a nice one. Appearance: Dark brown, looks suspiciously like Coca-Cola in my pilsener glass. Aroma: A tad (but just a tad) on the weak side in my book. Nicely malty and caramelly. Taste: Very nice! Raisins, caramel, a subtle but solid Noble Hop presence, nutty and toasty. I gave it a 8.5, which is not an option on the RB scale. Palate: Spritzy. Overall: It’s no Curator or Celebrator to be sure, but for the price (much cheaper than either of those!) it can’t be beat. I used it in the preparation of Doppelbock-Thai pork balls served with a spicy peanut sauce, with snap peas and rice noodles. A glass of it along with the meal was a divine pairing. This would be good with an array of desserts as well.

60minuteman (990) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle from Beer Shop Malvern. Roasted, high ABV, earthy and minty malts totally dominate here. Excellent dynamic. Dark fruit, caramel and roasted barley included. Pretty good stuff.

Zlotta (211) - Bonn, GERMANY - APR 16, 2015
0,5 l bottle from bier-deluxe, best before 28/10/2015. Clear, very dark ruby with a medium large, frothy, very slowly diminishing, tan head. Intense aroma of raisins, prunes, molasses and slight hints of chocolate. Sweetish taste of raisins, prunes and molasses, followed by even more sweetness towards the finish. Medium long, chocolatey, minimally bitter finish with a pleasant, gentle alcoholic and warming note. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice sipper, but not as special as expected. Still very tasty and pleasant on the palate, but not overly complex.

Pour- dark amber with an light tan two finger head.Nose - Sweet dark caramelized sugar, roasted malts, molasses, fresh dark bread. Taste - very full and smooth. Dark roasted malt, molasses, chocolate, leaving a light, sweet coating on the palate. Overall excellent Doppelbock. Will buy again!

Dark brown colour with small head. Aroma of dark fruits, bananas, hebs, roasted malts. Taste of hops, dark fruits, bananas, roasted malts. Nice malty aftertaste which is very well balanced. Overall one of the best examples of this style.

dpgjrnhcraftbrew (64) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 6, 2015
Brown/ dark red color pour. Off white head rose and retreated to a ring and left behind spotty lacing. Aroma was of molasses, honey, malts, and roast. Taste was of molasses, burnt sugar, roast, and a caramel sweetness. Mild carbonation with a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a very good beer, but, the dopplebock style never really works for me.

Pours deep amber-black from bottle with generous tan head. Malty aroma with hints of chocolate, plums, roasted barley. Tastes sweet, syrupy, toasty with notes of anise; finishes with strong bitterness that brings you back for the next sip. Full bodied, particularly for a lager with light carbonation. A nearly perfect production lager IMHO. Not for mass consumption but great with meals. Beer doesn’t get much better than this.

BuckeyeBoy (3158) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 6, 2015
500ml bottle thanks to Kyotolefty for sharing this. Pours out a dark brown with some ruby highlights a small head sitting on top. Nose is pit fruit nuttiness a touch of roast and a nice bread. Taste is more of the light roast malts some spice and the fruit.

OmegaX (1318) - Florida, USA - APR 5, 2015
A good brew and only 2.99. Aroma is dried fruits, plums, heavy malts, dark bread. Flavor is thick with plums, raisins, bread, caramel. Dark brown color. Not much to say except it’s very nicely done, well priced and is sure to be a crowd pleaser of a beer.
