Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours a medium-dark brown. Some head, tan in color, not much lacing. Nutty and sweet tasting, very little aroma. Very little warming as well; you think it’s sessionable but watch out! Would have liked a bit more aroma, but fairly tasty nonetheless.
Pours clear dark chestnut, with a thin beige head, moderate retention. Aromas of caramel, coffee, nuts, some earthy hops. Medium light body, smooth, moderate carbonation. Medium sweet, gentle tartness, light bitter finish, slight mineral taste. ogre71 (359) - Utah, USA - APR 9, 2017
Epic has brewed another excellent doublebock lager. Full of malty sweetness smooth easy drinking would recommend. AgentAle (1726) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 14, 2017
Aroma is tart, caramel and citrus. Taste is light sweet malts, honey, caramel and clove. Nice balance between the grains and hops. Finishes smoothly. Appearance is a clear brown with a thin pearl head that retains somewhat poorly. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2017
Sweet note but with enough booze to give it a nice combination. I could fast with a case of this by my side. I would like a little more depth but an easy drinking beer. kassner (1657) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2017
On tap at whole foods in wexford. Light cola color, no head and little lacing. But great taste without an oberburdon of sweetness. Much like Bifrost.

Dark copper color with a tallish light tan head. Aromas of light grain, licorice and floral hops. Sweet start, with pale malt, light fruit and floral undertone. It’s growing on me, but it’s taking some time. A good malt liquor, with a little bit more malt flavor. The floral hops continue to throw me off. A decent beer, but not a great DB. 1/14

Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma is caramel, dark fruit. Not much else. Flavor is caramel, toffee, dark fruit, not much else there either. It’s pretty tasty, but weak overall. patricks110 (2491) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2016
Rarely does a craft brewed doppelbock rank up with the best from Germany. Pots a nice looking golden brown with a thin beige head with a light stream of carbonation. Aroma is a bit malty with caramel and soft toffee, pinch of spice and nutty notes throughout. Light fruit note on the mid palate and almost no bitterness. Light malty sweetness on the finish with a bit of warmth. reebtogi (6246) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 22, 2016
650ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger of off-white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is caramel with some grass and dark fruits. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a respectable brew that suits the style well. Recommended for those dark German beer lovers out there. GarrettB (1583) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2016
August 27th, 2014 - Hot off the elation of the first beer of the day - Epic Brewing’s Utah Sage Saison - is something a little darker and sharper, with the Double Skull Doppelbock. Brown and thick, it is a cup of brunette brew, colored like a doe. The aroma is hard to get from the taster, but the taste is sweet, imitating with a complex flurry of malt sugars and flavors. This is also launched with notes of fig, plum and prune. The body is also refreshing, almost sparkling, and helps to lighten some of those dark sugar flavors, elevating them to new transmogrifications, like sassafras. The aftertaste is short, though, so catching those notes as the change is like catching a ail-o-the-wisp, dancing and bouncing.
