Dark red pour with some lace. Candied nose. Sweet caramel flavors. It's a doppelbock.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2002
This is only available off tap I believe, at the brewpub. Starts with a nice clean and semi sweet flavor, but by the time I got to the bottom of the glass, I was having to work just to get the stuff down. Darker than I would expect, but something just didn’t line up right for this beer.

On draught at Widmer Gasthaus. Dark amber in color. Smooth alcohol warming with taste of roasted malt, pit fruit, and faint chocolate.

what is in my mouth? roasted malt thinned with water, whiskey, dark cheries & maybe a stray cigarette butt. aroma of roasted malt, dark syrup (sans maple.) dark brown with ruby highlights, no head. great in the mouth--- numbing the tongue and all around. a good intensity, but hte pieces dont fit together

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2008
1/19/08 On draught at the Portland brewhouse. Aroma is smoky, malt-forward, with no hop character and some dark fruit character in the background. Appearance is amber/brown with a very low head. Flavor is rich, sweet and fruity, with malt dominance followed by moderate flora-free bittering and a low alcoholic note. Mouthfeel is medium/high bodied with medium carb texture and good alcoholic warmth. Overall, great complexity, but probably wouldn’t go for more than one.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Deep redish amber color, clear, with a thin white head that left before I got to it on the sample tray. Little aroma, very sweet, with fruity esthers. Wish I knew the ABV on this one, seemed fairly high, but hard to tell as it was pretty well masked.

On tap at the Widmer Gasthaus, Portland brewhouse.Smells amazing. Tons of malty sweetness that oozes with caramel and raisins. Even the most vigorous pour only produced a thin ring that I wouldn’t even call head. The beer is dark brown in color with a ruby glow. The lack of carbonation in this beer is almost to the point of flat, and it makes for a dissapointly watery mouthfeel. It isn’t as sweet as the aroma suggests, but then that’s not such a bad thing. There is plenty of caramel and toffee flavors up front. Towards the end there is a bit of alcohol and a faint bitterness that is more astringent then hop induced. A decent doppelbock with an amazing aroma.
