1 quart 14.5 fl oz, 2007, dobbel bock, thanks to Papsoe for this treat. Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing tan head. Breadish and mild spiced aroma. Breadish and mild spiced flavour with a mild oldish feel, yet smooth and nicely balance between bitterness and malt base and the spice note. Ends mild bitter and slight spiced. Light liqourice touch too. Ungstrup (37568) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2009
Bottled. An amber-orange beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet with nots of caramel, nuts, and alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing. joergen (28108) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2008

(Bottle 137 cl) Courtesy of MaltOMeal. Pours a clear amber golden with a creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and Danish rye bread. Medium body with roasted malt and Danish rye bread again - perhaps also a whiff of sulphur. Rather solid bitterness. This is by no means a great Doppelbock, but seing people’s ratings it’s obvious that there’s a lot of negative bias against it - just because it’s a Bud. Bud at least in the 2007 version it’s a rather decent beer. So skip all your prejudices please. 140608 Leighton (21236) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Vintage 2007 - what a treat. Pours clear amber with a light, tan cream head. Nicely oxidised in the aroma, with present caramel and bread. Medium sweet flavor with sugary bread, caramel, aged fruits, figs, dates. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary, syrupy finish with more oxidation, toasted grainy bread, leathery fruits, dates, berries. Pretty solid on the whole.

Bottle shared at RBWG ’15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever shared this one, 21/02/15.
Mahogany brown with moderate tan spotting.
Nose is biscuit, toffee, cardboard, malt notes.
Taste comprises wooded notes, toffee, spice, biscuit, light charr effect.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Ok, drinkable if a touch soulless. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2006
Light amber colour. Rather sweet, not especially well-fermented. This makes the body a bit gooey even by malt liquor standards. And this isn’t really trying to be a malt liquor. But then as Yoda said "do or do not do, there is no try." And this does taste like a malt liquor with its apples, alcohol and way too much raw sugar character. Simple flavours, and not pleasant even in the most masochistic malt liquor sense of the word. Ferris (15267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Bottle - Vintage 2007 - Caramel malts and dark sugars. Dark brown copper with a decent white head. Dark malty caramel malts. Like a light Barleywine or American strong.
