Smoke burned aroma of malts. Poured black with a tan head that dissipated. Had a vanilla taste to it. Was dry on the palate for the most part but a couple of times throughout the beer it seemed watered downed. Good beer though. atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2005
Dark, dark brown... nearly black with tan head. Aroma is sweet, a bit bitter, and malty. Malts are brown sugar sweet and roasted. Some sour malt flavors are first plesent. Subtle roasted malts mix nicely with the sourness and there is a creamy feel and finish. Also, fruity and sour bitterness. beerluvindave (194) - Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2005
Very nice complexity - a mix of good malt, smooth presentation, and a spice / fruit infusion, topped of by a signature doppelbock flavor. SayNoToCoors (65) - Wheat Ridge, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2005
Pretty much perfection as far as Doppelbocks go. This brew is nice and creamy. For tastes you get some nice syrup and molasses flavors along with a little bit of coco. Head is nice and creamy as well. Good lacing rings are visible around my glass. One damn good beer. Gmku (303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2005
How much beer could I drink if I could drink beer all the time? Well, if it were this beer, I’d sure try to drink beer all the time. If I could. This is lovely. Sweet and malty without being cloying so. Sweet aroma.

This is a big tasty beer. It pours a nice dark brown with a long lasting cream colored head and some pretty amazing lacing. The beer has a slightly sweet taste and a nice bitter finish. PeterA (342) - EL SALVADOR - APR 3, 2005
(bottle) Sweet malty aroma. Dark caramel color with light brown head. The flavor matches the aroma, sweet and malty. This is a rich heavy beer, it leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste, and is slightly sticky. A very enjoyable beer. drunkmonk (13) - hillborough, North Carolina, USA - APR 2, 2005

(bottle). Pours reddish-brown, amber with a thick brown head. Aroma is nutty and earthy. Full, thick, and smooth on the palate, with a sweet fruity taste and a slightly bitter aftertaste. A complex brew overall. Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Nice thick dark black/brown pour, with a larger brown head. Aromas of almost to many things to name but I will try, maple syrup sweetness, earthiness, nuttiness, light touches of vanilla, cherry, and red grapes without the sourness. Smooth flavos of malt and hops balance nicely,with the cherries, some smokiness, and the syrup present in the lasting aftertaste. A beer that got better with each sip as the glass warmed up a bit.
