scooterbub (1051) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 28, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark brown with a red hue and thin tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, caramel, smoke, vanilla and chocolate. Has a medium body with a slight fruity finish. Easy to drink and doesnt show its abv.

johndoughty (5311) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle.Black with a small head. Quite a lot of body but not as much flavour as you would expect. Quite pleasant at first but soon sunk into blandness.

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle from Fresh & Easy: Aroma is mild with a faint aroma toast malt, nothing much. Appeared a dark tinting of brown liquid with a tiny formation of foam. The flavor is bland with minimal sweet notes of malt. Slight finish taste of perfume. Cheap brown ale that was rather awful.

nuplastikk (6105) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2014
12oz bottle. Deep brown-black body. Not much of a head...nothing after a minute or two. Very smooth. It kind of has that thin bodied character that makes me think extract, Pretty decent really, just has a neutered, lifeless quality to it that I dont enjoy. Im admittedly pretty biased against MBC. Sugary. OK flavor..but Id never buy it again because it is really just alcoholic sugar water.

JohnnyJ (5541) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown, slightly reddish, with an off white head. Brown sugar, dark malt, caramel, light roast, and sugary. Not bad, but to sweet for my liking.

TBone (17081) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle 355ml (ABM, BBE 11/2014)
Dark ruby brown color, tiny brownish head. Molasses and rye bread in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish with milky notes, rye bread and maltyness. Odd as a doppelbock. More like Baltic type porter.

BVery (10124) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from Binnys. Very dark mahogany pour with a small foamy tan head. Toasted malt, bread, bittersweet chocolate, maybe a hint of licorice. Medium to lighter on the carbonation. Medium palate. Not bad.

superspak (5315) - Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, dark bread, brown sugar, raisin, plum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and yeast ester notes; with decent strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, milk chocolate, cocoa, dark bread, brown sugar, raisin, plum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, milk chocolate, cocoa, dark bread, brown sugar, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice doppelbock. Good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A bit too dark/roasty for the style, but nicely enjoyable otherwise.
