Release#4 9% ABV. 22oz bomber, didnt open with much of a hiss, but it still had a nice off white head on top of a filtered ruby-amber red-brown body. A pretty well done Doppelbock certainly, captures some nice lager notes. Smooth creamy malt tones. A touch thin at times, sort of makes you wonder how it would have been unfiltered, but I imagine the way it is keeps it way more drinkable. Rich bready, fig, butterscotch, dessert finish. Really enjoyable beer!

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 (1605) - 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.

JPDIPSO (6002) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2016
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. Its growing on me, but its 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. Its pretty tasty, but weak overall.

patricks110 (2468) - 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 (6022) - 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.

August 27th, 2014 - Hot off the elation of the first beer of the day - Epic Brewings 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.

Wood, caramel, biscuit, dark fruit, some mild roast. Very drinkable doppelbock that is usually not my fav.

SudsMcDuff (8232) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - APR 16, 2016
Had a small glass at J Henrys invoice. Or is dark brown caramel. That is green meat and white but the leasing is not very good. The taste is mostly of molasses and Dusty cereal with a little bit of booze and fig chocolates. The mouth has soft carbonation it a nice long sticky finish which really rounds off the beer .. Decent doppelganster! .. . . Dictated not read.

Dark brown with a medium cream head. Sweet aroma of roasted malts. Taste is sweet, roasted malts, caramel, fruits. Smooth with a medium body, sweet, not boozy. Classic flavours for a quality beer.
