This amber ale poured with a hint of a beige head and a malty aroma. This is much lighter in color than the classic doppelbocks. There is a syrupy caramel malt flavor and a slightly bitter finish. Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 19, 2009

Bottle Christmas Present courtesy of a brew loving buddy.
Amber/brown color,small off white head that had a short hang time then faded quickly to leave slight bit behind.The aroma was nicely malty with some hints of caramel and roastiness,a slight hint of possibly coffee or really dark chocolate.The flavor was very good malty flavor up front with some nice roast in there as well as a bit of caramel and some faint hints of chocolate and posiibly some fruit,but that only shows when the brew warms up a bit.Over all a fairly nice brew that is decently smooth and has just a hint of alcohol in the end.Well worth having again. kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2008
