Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a semi-clear copper color with a film of a little off white foamy head. Barely any lace.
The aroma was moderately sweet with some bread, light chocolate, some caramel, light toast, some dark fruits.
The flavor was moderately sweet through the prior mentioned aromas pulling a decent bready/malty aftertaste rolling into the finish fairly nice.
The palate was guided fairly nice by the bready malts to have a nice grip on a medium body. Good sipper with what seemed to appropriately project the ABV by which the brewer said. Low carbonation and a good smoothness.
Overall, pretty nice doppelbock I’d have again. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2014

Very dark brown pour with red tones, small brown head. Aroma of cocoa and milk chocolate, flavor of cocoa, roast and chocolate. A little thin. Cybercat (5895) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a clear coppery brown, almost mahogany, with a fair light tan head. Roast malt aroma has notes of cloves and horehound. Roast caramely hops dominate the flavor but let hints of horehound and yeast, as well as a touch of cloves, get through. Smooth mouthfeel is quite fizzy and fairly sturdy. Let it accelerate down your throat - but please take The T if you have de trop! beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2011
On draught at the Fenway location. Arrived a deep brown with garnet tinting that allowed no light to pass through with a thin-moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of malt which begins mild and increases a bit as the beer warms. The flavor is malt with a solid dose of caramel. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Very mild bitterness at the finish. Enjoyable.

The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Tap. Salem. Pours a deep reddish brown without much of a head. Nose is malty and fruity. Flavor is a little thin for a doppelbock as well as mouthfeel. Slightly sweet with licorice in the finish, minimal bitterness I have had better from the Beer Works. Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2006
While the haymarket was very aromatic, this had no aroma at all, none, whatsoever. I don’t even have to adjust the score in fact. Ruby brown color. Flavor is very strange, syrupy, overly ripe and alcoholic. Some caramel, toffee and plum, but mainly just husk and alcohol. beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Powdered sugar aroma that’s subtle. Asparagus aftertaste. Garnet colored. Tastes foamy in the palate. Excellent clarity. Had at Canal St. Location. GeniusGirl (221) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2004
tap @ canal. oily palate, as beaconstreet noted an asparagus aftertaste, creamy on the palate... almost like swallowing a sweet load.
