Draft. Hazy light yellow. More malt nose than hoppy. Full body with a great malt backbone and grassy hop flavor. Different but well done take on an ipa. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
Deep brown with an average beige head. Aroma is of malt, light vegetal, and caramel. Taste is of soggy cardboard, caramel, and mash water.

Tap. The look is clear, decent light beige colored head, and brownish red color. The smell is banana, fruit, wheat, rice cakes, and yeasty. The taste is sugary, alcohol, fruit, wheat, and ok. Ferris (16521) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Draft - Dark malts and a bit syrupy. Cloudy amber with a thin white head. Dark fruit esters and a bit of booze. Lots of fruit peel and caramelized sugars. Odd and there is a slight astringency, but the oddness makes it uniquely interesting. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
On tap at Jack’s. Can’t believe I had never rated this one. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma is fairly malty with some strong caramel and biscuit notes as well as a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is similar. The big malt notes stand out, but they are accompanied by a bit of dark fruit, orange and grapes. I also get a bit of alcohol, but the alcohol is fairly well hidden. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Rich deep amber with a copper hue. Lasting thin tan head that’s pretty dense. Strong malty aroma but not sweet. Strong malty taste but well balanced by the hops. Smooth, strong, full. Good. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Aroma of malts. Pours a dark amber with mostly diminishing tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is malt forward - slightly sweet. Malts, hints of nuts and dark fruit. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, I like it better than the first time I tried it. This Doppelbock was not as robust as some others I like from this style.
