mjg74 (2953) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Bottled. Pours a super deep ruby color. Aroma is sweet. Like chocolate and raspberries. Some roasted coffee as well. Flavor is rich with chocolate and roasted coffee. Some sweet berries and a lingering burnt malty finish. Great brew. I would love to have a case of this stuff.

This is such a good beer! Dark brown with some red tones to it, a bit like cola. Delightful aroma with lots of sweet malts. Some raisen is evident and maybe a hint of cherries deep down. Flavor is also of malt and is rich and delicious. Sorry I only bought a single pint. It was thoroughly enjoyed.

Thanks a lot for breaking this one out, csbosox. I believe he got this via Yogi_Beera. The body was dark brown and amber with a khaki head. The aroma was honey with green grapes, pears and caramel. The taste was smooth and leathery with some dry oatmeal and some almonds. I imagine this is even better when fresh.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - DEC 4, 2005
(500 ml bottle from http://hitimewine.com, marked "08.01.02 L") Body is cola-colored, head is light tan. Nose is prunes, raisins, brown sugar, malt. Some lacing. Mouthfeel smooth, a little dry. Flavor: seems fairly bitter at first, then brown sugar sweetness starts to kick in about halfway into bottle. Not quite as wonderfully complex as some of the other doppels I’ve had IMHO, but still certainly very good. Alcohol very well hidden also.

Tmoney99 (13253) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Bottle in Florida. Pours a dark brown color with a small creamy off-white head that diminished slowly. Good roasted malt and molasses aroma. Medium body with a creamy texture. Heavy sweet roasted flavor and smooth finish of average duration. Very good brew.

DuffMan (9283) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2005
Dark chestnut brown, tan head, lacy. Huge aromas of molasses, bitter chocolate. Palate is rich rich malt, slightly nutty, slightly smoky. Quite a creamy mouthfeel. Fantastic!

BeerandBlues2 (11974) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 13, 2005
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium frothy tan head that stays for a short while and leaves creamy spotty lacing. Dark chocolate and cocoa, dark roasted caramel malt (cookie) and yeast (sweat, barn) aromas. Dark semi-sweet caramel and chocolate malt, nutty medium roasted malt flavor with a touch of hops. Medium bodied and creamy to fizzy, lightly dry palate.

pivnizub (10028) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2005
Bottle Dark amber coloured with reddish tints, thin but long lasting beige head; complex aroma: molasses (or liquorice ?) and roasted malts, dried fruit, a bit vinous, too; slightly sweetish flavour, becoming dryer towards the bitter (chocolatey)-malty finish; creamy mouthfeel, quite full bodied :-), but avoids becoming really sweet. Well quaffable, but too much molasses...............
