Tmoney99 (13059) - 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 (8915) - 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 (11711) - 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 (9895) - 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...............

danfosha (51) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Good size, lasting creamy light brown head, not a lot of lacing. Clear, dark brown color. Aroma is of molasses, roasted grain, mild hints of chocolate . Very light hops, moderately sweet, not much acid, well balanced. A short finish, kind of watery. Flavor dissipates rapidly - a beer to be swallowed, not savored. Medium full bodied, creamy texture, with fizzy carbonation. Goes well with a dark bread. Got this from the monastery.

frankenkitty (1991) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Clear but densely colored, caramel/red with a huge, spongy tan head with effervescence rising in streams. Insanely sweet-malted aroma was caramel, candy bar & chocolate with slight mustiness. Flavor was sweet and astringent, the alcohol being overdone. It was like sipping a thin whisky, whereas I would have preferred tasting the thick malts that I perceived in the aroma. Finish is earthen with an alcohol gut-burn. This beer starts well, ends disappointingly.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2005 Bottle. Aroma is mollasses. Flavor isn’t far behind. A beer worth revvisitting.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) 6,5% ABV in my version. Light brown with a rich and frothy head that fades a bit too fast. Very full-bodied and malty with a sweet, lightly caramelish touch. Yet a dry bitterness in the finish making a balanced and harmonious Doppelbock. Good, solid stuff. 220801

BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2005
This was a great beer. Very strong in flavor highly carbonated. Great head with a dark brown color. Nice and cloudy just as syle would dictate. Good strong bread aroma no esthers sweet with an awesome flavor.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Clear and dark, with reddish overtones that become more visible as the amount of beer in the glass diminishes, with a huge coffee colored head that fades and leaves lacing down the side of the glass. Great complexity, with sweet dark roast, coffee and chocolate, bitter hops, and a slightly sour undertown, with a chocolate and bitter finish. Kind of dry tannic mouthfeel and an alcohol warmth. Celebrator is a more striking doppelbock, but this is easier to drink.
