Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours dark copper brown with a beige/tan head. Aroma is malty. But not overly sweet. Med minus body. Flavor is malty, hinting at cola, but it’s not "substantive". Finishing thin and not all that strong in flavor. There are hops, but somehow this just doesn’t blend together in a tasty fashion. Needs more of everything. Tmoney99 (15118) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt aroma. Medium body. Moderate toasted malt flavor with a light bitter finish of average duration. Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper with a thin fizzy tan head. Poor head retention. Aroma of caramel, spice, toffee, mild raisin. The taste is raisin, caramel, mild hops. Medium bodied, a bit too sweet. Dogbrick (14309) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2002
Another solid offering from Leinenkugel. They are probably my overall favorite large-scale USA brewery, especially since they always seem to be on sale for $5/6-pack. This was not quite as good as the Creamy Dark but still good. Deep reddish-brown color with a short-lived head. Roasted coffee flavor but a little on the light side considering the color. I will definitely get this one again. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2015
355ml twist off. Calling this a doppelbock is a stretch. Brown pour. Aroma is malty and biscuity. Flavor is a bit spicy, sweet and malty, reminds me of an Amero-bock.

One day I’ll just stop. A sad excuse for a great classic style. Thin and spritzer like with little depth to the sweet bready nose and flavor. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Cocoa caramel malt and grass/hay aroma. Chestnut with large head. Sweet raisin, caramel malt and lightly bitter/astringent alcohol flavor. Medium body. Decent. BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2009
TAP: Dark brown / slight red pour with a tan head. Aroma and flavor is mostly non-descript. A little bit of malt and caramel. Fairly dull beer. hopscotch (11424) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle... Clear ruby lager with a small, fizzy, beige head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel, maple syrup and chocolate malt. The flavor is medium sweet, but hopped adequately to eliminate any chance of the malts becoming cloying. Maple and plum. Full-bodied and almost fatty with lively carbonation. Finishes fairly clean. Thanks to headbanger for shipping the bottle to me! DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2005
Thanks to Duane. This is my last beer from Duane, and they have all been very good. This one pours a deep, vibrant ruby color with a medium, creamy white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, plum, and prunes. Tastes very malty, with the aforementioned dark fruits and a slight, tart cherry finish. Delicious. Not super dense or complex like many doppelbocks, but very good nonetheless.
