Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2005
Pours hazy dark brown with a light brown head. Sweet and sticky malt and caramel aroma with hints of alcohol. Typical doppelbock flavor of malt, caramel and alcohol. Little thin. Definately not as good as the best German doppelbocks.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2005
Delicious! This pours out a clear, light brown color with some reddish highlights and is capped by a slender white head. The aroma is sweet like the wort with caramel and toffee scents. Itís a very smooth, easily drinkable, the ABV being well hidden except for a slight alcohol burn on the tongue in the finish. Itís a good malty drink with caramel being the predominant flavor. Thereís a fairly heavy dosage (for the style) of hops here, but they work mainly to keep the brew from getting overpoweringly sweet. Iím having some more.

Tmoney99 (13778) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2005
Draft at brew pub. Reddish brown color with medium off-white head. Complex aroma of hops with sweet tone. Full flavor and body with malt, caramel and hops. Good long finish. Very refreshing and pleasing brew.

DrnkMcDermott (3025) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2005
Bottled. Pours a nice ruby color. The expected malty smell with a note of hops I havenít found in other Doppels. Taste is malty too, of course, with caramel, alcohol and a note of vanilla fudge. I thought it wasnít overly sweet, due to hop presence. Finishes with a bit of yeast bite, stirred up as I grabbed the bottle.

Not bad but a little too sweet for my taste (and I tend to like them a little sweet).

green (186) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 4, 2005
Cellar Temp. Crimson with a minimally retaining head. Nice dark fruit aroma. Chewy, slightly sweet. Drinkable but not terribly flavorful.

Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2005
Pours a reddish copper color, with a thin tan head and decent lacing. I canít seem to detect much nose, maybe the slightest touch of malt. The taste is quite strong, however. Iím struck with malt, those strawberry marshmellows in Frankenberry cerial, molasses, caramel, and an alcohol finish. A very interesting taste, indeed.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2005
This is a rusty brown beer that doesnít pour much of a head. It has a mild malty aroma. The taste is smooth with no distinct flavor jumping out.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Deep plum with beautiful cream head. The aroma is molasses, caramel, plum, olive, chocolate and many, many other things. First thing I notice is a very soft mouthfeel. Nice change from drinking alot of IPAs. The creamy texture melts into a sugary-sweet caramel and spice flavor. The finish is warming (alcohol?) My first Doppelbock - so not much to compare to in the category. I like it though!

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Deep dark hazy copper, thin tanned fizzy head. Nice nose on this one with notes of fruit bread drizzled with caramel, toffee, brown sugar, with lighter notes of candied cherry. A nice balance arrives with sweet dark malt jumping out first, but quickly getting a light to moderate hop bitterness to keep the sweetness in check. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, smooth, candied dark fruit and caramel finish. A very nice doppel....
