Not bad, though it can’t compare with the top shelf doppelbocks. Doesn’t have the same rich, thick flavor. This has a nice caramel and toffee background. Tried at the brewery. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Pours a translucent amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of toffee, toasted malt and soft pretzels. Flavor of dark fruits, pretzels, cherries and toasted sweet malts. deyholla (11597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains and bread with a hint of cookie. Flavor has similar notes of sweet grain and bread that finishes smooth. unclemike (3121) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - DEC 20, 2011
at brewpub This pours deep amber with a fine white head and has a sweet & vinous nose full of raisin and dried plum scents. Initially tastes sweet and full-bodied, but as the flavour develops the sweetness is balanced by a nutty hop character, lots of malt, a hint of roastiness and a dry alcoholic bite. The finish is dry and gently bitter RobertDale (6470) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - DEC 17, 2011
On tap at brewpub. Comes clear copper with a nice biege head. Aroma of malt, sugar and dark fruit. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, fruit and a bit of alcohol. A bit of hops at the finish. Nice.

Taster @ the brewpub. Color is completely clean copper. Aroma is lightly fruity and earthy German lager yeast, that only that combination can bring. Taste is clean and lightly earthy. Fine stuff for a doppelbock but a bit boring at the end. heemer77 (5357) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 8, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. The body was deep copper with a light khaki head. The aroma was sweet bread with apples. Perfume is in this one. The taste is sweet caramel and almonds. Nicely balanced with just enough sweetness. Obvious alcohol, but it is still a pleasure to drink. theisti (4126) - Kansas, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Glass from a growler graciously shared with me by csbosox. Pour is clear ruby brown with a tan head. Aroma of caramel sweetness, some grainy hay. Taste is caramel maltiness, sharp sweetness, with hop bitterness in the finish. Grass and dirty straw throughout. Palate is thin to medium, easy drinking, though still quite a bit of flavor. Overall nice beer. Super cool of you stop by and offer me a glass of this Chris. Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Pours a clear, deep orange with a dense, creamy, off-white head that laces nicely. The nose is a sweet, malty brown sugar and raisin. The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium-bodied with a lightly metallic feel on the tongue, transitioning to a fairly dry and mildly astringent finish. Sweet malty raisin and caramel with a hint of alcohol at the finish. A solid Doppelbock but it’s probably not one that I’m inclined to order again. My opinion is probably tainted by the fact that I drank a Paulaner Salvator and Sprecher Doppel the night before sampling this one, but I just wasn’t blown away by this one. tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 24, 2007
On draught at the brewpub, pours a clear dark amber with a slight head. Malty aroma, medium body, slightly heavy mouthfeel. Rich but clean big malty flavor, slightly sweet malty flavor balance. Very subtle hop bitterness. Slightly rough/coarse finish. Very nice.
