wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2005
UPDATED: APR 15, 2005 Pours dark brown with very good carbonation which stays throughout. The looks is almost champagne like but obviously a lot darker. The nose consists of chocolate, chocolate raisin, malts, toffee and caramel. The taste has toffee and caramel with abundance. There is less of a wine mouthfeel and more of a Rollos candy mouthfeel with this. I dig the wine feel a little bit more, but this is still a wonderful beer that I will enjoy many times. Really impressive and priced very well too.

Deep ruby/brown color with big bubble tan head. Aroma is of malt, raisins, and dark fruits. Big upfront malt flavor with biscuity finish. Doesn’t finish too sweet though. Dark and chewy.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Handsome brown in color with hints of burgundy. Large, mostly diminishing light tan head with an alluring aroma of deep fruitiness (raisins, plums, overipen fruits), chocolate and coffee grounds. Chewy malty flavor with hints of fruits, caramel and dark malts. A lovely beer.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JAN 24, 2005
Poured a dark brown with reddish hues with a large light tan head that left a lacing on the glass. Aroma is what I would expect from a good doppelbock: sweet grapes and raisins. Flavor has a prominent vinuous character and a strong malt sweetness, with a mild hop kick for balance and a very sublte dryness in the finish. Body is thinner than I expected. Overall a great doppelbock.

Tasting courtesy of Wohlfs and DougShoemaker. Pours dark brown with mahogany highlights. Decent beige head. Sweet malt fruity aroma. Flavor was all over the place. Rotten banana, syrup, sugar and some roasted malt. Very sweet overall.

Pailhead (5588) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Bottle: Sweet aroma. Caramel, toffee, honey, and fruit. Pours a dark semi-transparent brown with red hilights. Sweet caramel with a slight roasty nuttiness in the finish. There is a metallic taste in the finish that really hurts this beer.
