11.2 oz green bottle (why?). Date on bottle says 10.02.12.
It ours a nice color, a deep reddish brown with a foamy off-white head that leaves some nice lacing.
The smell is kind of boring for a doppelbock.
The flavor is a bit better. It is not like a Bavarian doppelbock. It is actually pretty interesting to have a north-German doppelbock because they are rarer and a lot different. I would still take it over most American doppelbocks that throw way too much in to cover up shortcomings in their lager-making abilities. This one isn’t as sweet and dryer than Bavarian examples, also more subtle. There is still a noticeable hop character to it. The sweetness takes up the back end though, with not hop bitterness to level it.
Overall not bad, but not up to par with Bavarian examples. LetsGoState (877) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Aroma is a medium brown head and clear brown color. Aroma is sweet chocolate. Taste is also sweet chocolate malt with little toastiness. Overall not overly impressed. Hangover (1134) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Clear brown-red pour witha thin tan head. Aroma has a bit of vegetable with some dark maltiness behind it. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Flavor has more of the vegetable funk with some dark fruit notes. Not very exciting... good body but not big on flavor. FROTHINGSLOSH (7694) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer poured a medium nut brown color with a small beige head that left some lacing. The aroma was perfumey and lightly malty. The flavor was caramel, maple syrup and perfume. The finish was long with caramel and perfume. Medium body. Ok. Koelschtrinker (20216) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Bitterer Start, hopfiger und malziger werdend. Die Malzigkeit beißt sich trotz der Milde fest und wird zum Nachgeschmack etwas stärker. Zum Ende röstiger und würziger.

cheap (5794) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Green bottle with a gold and white label and a gold neckband. Pour looks like darker colored iced tea. Smell is a little veggie, but not overwhelming; other than that its smells like many green bottle lagers from that part of the world. Some co2 but flavor overides the effect. Comes across a little strong on the first taste. A little more than this lager lover cares for, but its not terribly alky. Not real gentleman like, actually gets a littler ruder toward the end of the session. Finish is somewhat difficult as well. Big kick in the ass for a 7.5% beer fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2011
jeez, why the low overall ratings? i thought this was pretty good honestly. nicely balanced with nice buttery bread notes and dark roasted malts. very nice. ExpendableHero (916) - Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle labeled as Premium Doppelbock. Dark brown beer with ruby tints, and an off-white head. Weak caramel aromas. Tastes a bit of chocolate, and some caramel. Smooth, and clean taste, but one-dimensional. A bit boring, but not a bad beer. fonefan (48648) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2011

Bottle 500ml. @ home.
Clear medium to dark red brown color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to light beige head. Aroma is moderate to light light heavy malty, roasted, caramel. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, caramel, light roasted, chocolate malt notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. 
right off the bat this beer when pored into the glass put off a strong skunky/earthy aroma. it has a very dark amber color with very little head. it has a light bitter taste and it flowes over the palate oily with soft carbonation. Overall the initial smell is discuraging but the beer is not the worst in the world.
