can’t beat it for the price, and this is among the best of their 6-pack line. As far as comparing it to the best of the style, it’s boring, but compared to similarly priced beers, it’s a steal." boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle into glass on dek... pours dark red clear.. rotten fruit aroma taste is prune and malts .. not my style but I will drink it all..yay jandd1983 (4276) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2014
It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of toffee, nuts, caramel, alcohol and some roasted malts. The taste was of burnt malts, toffee and light chocolate. stevoj (4966) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 11, 2014
This one is labeled Winterbrew, but is still a doppelbock. Nice roast grain flavor with a touch of coffee bitterness. Nut brown with creamy beige head. Aroma of burnt toast, nuts, dark bread. Not too bad thornecb (5880) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving spotted sheets. Sour malt aromas. Crisp with sour caramel, bitter nutty earth and burnt toast.

I admit that I don’t care much for this style, so from the first sweet sugary sip I winced trying to get this down. Fortunately, my wife was in need of some beer for a recipe so it didn’t go to waste. If drinking simple syrup is your thing you might like this as this stuff lacks any complexity or depth of flavor.

Bottle->SA. Bright medium brown. A: cheap wet grains and malt, some nuts. T: bittersweet caramel malt, nuts, earth. Taste is vastly better than aroma, but still not particularly good. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 30, 2013
12 oz. bottle. It pours a dark amber red color with an off white head. The aroma is syrupy and fruity. The flavor is pretty much the same. Dark fruit and syrup with some herbal bitterness. Pretty decent, but a tad harsh on the palate. Good for the price. Hartung32 (252) - Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Solid beer, but isn't more than an average Doppelbock. It seems to be a tad over hopped, and more roasty than malty.

Pours dark brown reddish amber with a foamy yellow-beige-white head that leaves scattered lacing and hangs around awhile. Aroma is toasty malts and bread. Taste is earthy roast malt, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate and bread with noticable bitter on the back and in the aftertaste. Good balance of sweet and bitter. This beer shocked me - I was not expecting such an excellent doppelbock (I am a big fan of the style).
