This one was great, I enjoyed every second of it! Dark color with molasses in the flavor and the aroma. Maybe even a bit of chocolate in there. Complex, delicious, and malty. Great beer, I highly recomend it. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 26, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2007 This dopplebock rocks. Pours deep dark brown w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Superb hangtime w/ textbook residual lacing. Aromas of moderately roasted malts, leather, cocoa, and dark fruits. Malty w/ a moderate roasty character. Flavors of mother earth, leather, cocoa, roasted coffee bean, and some dark plumby nuances all integrated w/ a mild sweetness factor. Well ballanced with BIG flavors to the last sip. Very complex. You get all the hops, alcohol (well hidden), sweet steak, and density balanced perfectly. Goes down smooth. Highly recomended. kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Pours an extremely dark molasses. Aroma of malt, raisins, and molasses. Deep, rich malty flavor with hints of molasses and maybe even chocolate. Almost no hop flavors present and no bitterness whatsoever. thornecb (6152) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 24, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2006 Pours a deep mahogany. Earthy with almost an artichoke aroma. Root vegetable. Nice head retention with uniform small bubbles. Light sweet/bitter. Thin and soft with long bitter finish. drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 12 oz. bottle. Deep brown body with a thin brown/white head. Aroma is toasted molasses, and I found it very strong. The flavor, however, is much more subtle. It is a very nice blend of molasses with raisins and a faint hop presence. I also tasted some coffee and dark chocolate. It felt smooth in the mouth with a moderate amount of carbonation. The style isn’t my favorite, but this is a very nice doppelbock.

This beer pours a very, very, dark brown almost black very little light can get threw this brew. This bock smells of caramel, roasted nuts, and figs. The taste of this beer is very delicious, I taste the sweetness of the caramel, some nutty flavors, and some dark fruit plum/figs all combine together and bring out some incredible tastes on the palate. This is definatly a sipping brew, one that can warm you up on a winter day.

It was a while back when I had this doppelbock but I remember that it was slightly malt-sweet with a roasted background and poured a deep brown, slightly hazy color. Excellent all around with a very clean, smooth finish. I will definitely get this again when I have the opportunity. OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2006
Pours a dark garnet with a thick tan head that has some staying power. Nice roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Flavor is of roasted malts and a bit of hops, goes down good but leaves you dry in the mouth. ebarnes (261) - Beech Grove, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours very dark with a robust, chocolate colored head that laces nicely. Almost tastes like a stout. Chocolate. Smooth. No bitterness. No after taste. smeero (1) - Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2006 does not count
A coffee colored beer with a a nice full roasted malt flavor. Dry hoppy finish with a strong hint of dark chocolate. Pretty head with very symmetrical bubbles doesn’t last very long, but then neither did the beer itself.
