Only a 72 rating? This Dopplebock is one of my favorites. Chocolate, carmel, figs and malt flavors shine in this beer. Nice thick head with great color. Great with a thick steak! mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2010 [134-20061209] 500mL. Sweet aroma. Dark brown-red body with no bubbles and no head. Flavour is strongly beery and fruity with maple syrup. Complex medium body with very noticeable alcohol. Nice togetherness. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

[3401B-20100928] 500mL bottle. Black banana skin grains aroma. Hazy, dark amber brown body with a quick creamy light tan head. Sweet toasted malt flavour has a lingering wort-like sugariness. Full body. Uninteresting. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.0
Dark, redish brown with a small off-white foam. Notes of malt, caramel and roasted almonds. Medium to full body with a strong bitter/ sweet finish. Wharfrat (27) - Alabama, USA - FEB 10, 2007
My bottle poured with almost no head, and carbonation very low. Aroma and flovor of dark fruit. Malty sweet flavor.
This is just OK. stouby (4781) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2007
Bottle at home.
Brown with a large beige head, almost disappearing, good lacings. Aroma heavy malty (roasted, caramel, dark fruits), light hoppy. Flavor heavy sweet, light bitter. Medium body, normal carbonated, rather strong in alcohol, but not really felt.

Clear dark brown with minimal head. Light malt and coffee aroma. Sweet and mild with some darker malts. Lighter than most of the other doppelbocks I have tasted. gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2007
From bottle courtesy of Immy. Copper pour with ring of off white foam. Nose is vegetable malts with sweeter malt in the flavor. Not too bad, but the nose really messes this one up. Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 19, 2007
50cl swingtop. Thanks are due to G&GKevin for lining us up with this! Cloudy amber with a ring of eggshell for a head. Musty wheat nose, some toffee - not a good aroma. Fortunately, the flavor was far better - sweet nutty caramel with a light roastiness. Provided a nice little tangent to our tasting afternoon that featured much bigger beers.

Fruity/malty flavor, smooth mouth feel. I can detect hints of bread as other reviewers have noted. Liked this one a lot. MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Dark reddish-brown with a small off-white head that seemed to dissipate quickly. Slightly sweet aroma of brown sugar and dark fruits, plums, figs, and dates. The dark fruits seem to contribute much more in the flavor than they do in the aroma. Flavor and palate are dominated by a malty sweetness. Alcohol can be slightly noticed after a sizable gulp. No real hop contribution to speak of. Overall, a pretty good doppelbock.
