12 oz bottle pours dark brown with a hint of red. Toffee notes after the beer has a chance to open up. Not exceptional but would drink again. beerlover82 (241) - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Luscious-looking dark ruby-red/amber, with a thin white head, no lacing, poor retention.
Nutty scents with some dark fruits, caramel, pineapple make up the aromas of this brew. Very pleasant nose here, makes one curious and eager to taste.
Excellent smooth and chewy mouth of dark caramel malts, creamy vanillaness, some dark tango fruits and faint hops. Good solid medium, drinkable body, with big carbonation.
An overall decent brew, good doppelbock but not even a great example, would have again, worth having once, maybe twice. coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Since the slippers that were given to me for Christmas did not fit but fit my Father, he graciously bought me a mixed six pack at Wegman’s yesterday. I chose this amongst the sixer. Nose of burnt toast and sugar. Pours a darker brown. toffee tones undulate. Some real nice light smokiness gets absolutely overshadowed by the toffee. Hops are missing. Droopy, spotty thin lacing that is unimpressive. Some central doughiness gives it a bit to chew upon but overall it is a muddled disaster of a brew. r464 (2361) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2011
A very roasty malt that is much like burnt toast. Slight nuttiness and caramel, but with a charred finish.

Bottle. Pours brown, thin tan head. Mild aroma, chocolate, basement aromas. Mild roasty flavor, primarily sweet and malty. Thin body for a doppelbock, quick finish. Not bad overall. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Cola brown with red edges. Cover is beige foam. Aroma is woody, caramels, light cocoa. Quite thin. Taste is semi offensive sweetness, there is a thinness about it, but caramels and cocoa dominate. bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Cask at J Clyde Birmingham 3/2/11. Dark brown and filtered. Nose is a bit malty but very light aroma. Taste is a bit soapy to start, a little sweet with some maltiness. Alcohol is evident. Smooth and light bodied. Not offensive but just OK as nothing really stands out here. Maverick34 (3250) - New York, USA - DEC 18, 2010
