Bottle from the Liquor Store & Wine Loft in Jackson Hole. Dark, dark brown with a creamy beige head. Lovely vinous aroma with burnt caramel undertones. Taste is dominated by a berry tone up front but quickly melds into the sweet malty base, full of dark chocolate, caramel, Schwarzbrot. A mild sour note carries the finish. Body is heavy, carbonation is soft. Tasty! Reminds me more of a stout/bock hybrid than a traditional German Doppelbock but it suffers none from it. Very nice!

Draught @ Aslan Depot. Amber/ brown, frothy, sweetish, toffee, woody, tart, which is disappointing. Really a big letdown. Shit, this got derailed but that inappropriate tartness.

Finally got my hands on some, thanks to a friend who was in the area. As a big doppelbock fan, this was a long time waiting. Pours mahogany, with a thin, beige head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and dried fruit. Taste is notes of chocolate, caramel and raisin, moving to roast and light spice. Finish is very smooth malt. An elite doppelbock.

Bottle from Tavour. Dark brown with light head. Big, lifted, fresh beer with coffee and dark chocolate aromas. Lovely aroma. It’s clean, intense and and balanced. Palate is rich balanced and very long. Dried fruit, cherry and dark cocoa.
This is magnificent. Probably best doppelbock I’ve tasted. No sluggish ferment. It’s clean and delightful. Massive aroma and flavor. kathouse (1942) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 6, 2017
Good balance of chocolate and caramel without being too sweet. Malty with a clean finish. A good beer.

Pours a near black from a bottle. Nice roasty caramel aroma, similar flavor with a nice Hallertau profile. Well-balanced sweetness. Pretty good beer. mjmoen (724) - - MAY 25, 2017
Pours a black color with khaki head. Full of flavor. Bread aromas and malty HourGlass13 (1942) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Pours a deep caramel brown with a thin tan head that left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt, caramel, mild toast, and a touch of prune. The flavor is similar with big malt leading the way, caramel, and mild toast. There is definitely some dark fruit taste in here with fig and prune. Mild bitterness. Nice well rounded mouthfeel.
