Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Reddish mahogany with a quickly dissipating white foam. Taste is sweet sweet caramel. Theres a different orangish taste in the middle I assume is birch. Moderate carbonation with a watery mouthfeel. Overall an interesting dopplebock. A bit off the beaten path but good. The birch is unusual bit compliments the style well.

Atom (2390) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bomber pours a brownish ruby with a thin off-white head. Aroma is very sweet syrup, dark fruit, and caramel. Very sweet, from the birch syrup, with and earthy wood finish and rotten fruit finish.

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a very viscous looking texture yielding a lightly hazed deep amber hued body with a small, off-white head. Aromas are quite sweet, nearly cloying. Some caramelized notes, very light banana (odd ester in a lager), vanilla, caramel, mild fruit, light chocolate, and cough syrup. Low spicy notes, mild hop character. Flavors are malty, quite sweet, maple, some esters (again odd for a dopplebock), a bit too caramel like in its malt presence, very sweet. Light raisin quality, caramel, vanilla, light melanoidin, low spice. Syrupy mouthfeel, low carbonation with a very full body. Overall too sweet, big and syrupy.

not bad aroma is a little off and so is the flavor but a good brew nonetheless

650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a small off-white head that recedes to a film. The aroma is moderate in strength with sweet malts and a light earthy spiciness. The flavor is similarly sweet with a classic dopplebock character including, mild apples, pears, syrup, grains, mild spicy hops and some woody notes. The palate is viscous and smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is long with lingering bitter nuts and syrup. Overall: Very tasty well done dopplebock.

BeerandBlues2 (13075) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear tawny with a small, fizzy and bubbly light tan to off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is lightly sweet birch and dates, plum and fig fruity ester notes, light caramel and nutty malts with some toast character and herbal hops near the end. Flavor is upfront fruity esters and birch syrup with good supporting malt, light bitterness to pull your thoughts away from the sweetness just for a minute, then a sweet finish with some alcohol drying. Full body and medium-light carbonation.

22. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head. Light stringy lace. Aluminum nose. Creamy heavy body, soft carb. Graham crackers and aluminum on the mid palate. They must have intended for this to turn out differently.

badgerben (5065) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Dark red color with a small head. Sweet malt and light maple aroma. Malty, bready flavor. Light biscuit. Not much maple character.

Beaver (1774) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2012
22oz bottle. Pours ruby amber with a small fizzy off-white head that quickly goes to a thin film.

The aroma is sweet caramel and toffee, maple and honey.

The flavor is sweet sugary caramel and toffee with a slightly bitter drying finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, the syrup adds interesting notes to the doppelbock. Its a bit on the sweet side for me.
