Thanks Bunkypop for hooking a brother up multiple times! Pours a dark body, black, with a mocha coloured head, that is thick as nails. Aromas are smokey, malty roasted nuts, chocolatey coffee, and meaty spiceness. Weird! Taste is smoked nuts and malt, with some campfire notes hitting everywhere. Nice complexity I cannot describe. Finish is smoooooooth, dry, alcohol not even here a trace!!!

A great looking beer, nose of caramel, honey and roasted malt. A very sweet caramel flavor with very mild hop bitterness. This is not my choice of a traditional Doppelbock but it is in the ballpark. This beer would be ideal for initiating the Budmiloors crowd to a great Doppel.
Best tasting beer I’ve ever had, the most flavorful beer ever! I love this beer, its so extremelly excellent, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - FEB 27, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2005 This is a good beer. It’s not one I would drink very often though, it’s more of a special occasion type of beer, especially with its higher alcohol content. susini1 (6) - Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2005 does not count
Wow what a beer. This is what beer is supposed to be. Dark pur with a nice tan head. A touch a sweetness going down with no aftertaste. Great carmel taste with just the right amout of maltiness. If you try any beer try this one.

Thick, dark beer. Pours nice and with a nice head. Sweet on the tongue and burns just a little going down. Tastes of nuts mix with fruits before going down with a pleasant, chocolate taste. Despite being a solid beer, I expected more from such a celebrated bottle... could have used a higher alcohol percentage. MillStreetMan (152) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2005
It has been a while since I’ve had this one, but I can remember that it looked and smelled amazing but didn’t really thrill me in its flavour. I’ll have to revisit it and probably rerate it, but in the meantime this is how it stands. jackson220 (136) - new lenox, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 This double bock is amazing with an aroma of malty molasses and toffee. Very strong flavor with hints of chocolate and caramel.Dark teak in color on the pour. Gorgeous beige head rest atop of a extremely viscous almost oil like body. This is one great beer...update, all true above but I must have had two to many on my 1st rating SSSteve (4006) - - FEB 13, 2005
aroma is sweet and similar to coffee. this beer is bursting with flavors. many that come to mind are chocolate, coffee, sugar, cream, roasted nuts. goes down very milky and oily. great beer Imbockinsxtx (82) - Big Bend (Benavides, TX), Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2005 WOW! Poured a very dark Coffee like Colour. The aroma was sweet. The Flavour explodes with Coffee/Caramel/Sugar/Cream/Butter/Cheese/Cream. The Foam stays with you the whole way. The Alcohol Mingles with the Sugar Flavours so Subtley that the cocktail like flavour is seductive. This is one beer that lived up to it’s hype. Salud!
