Patrickctenchi (6473) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Dark brown with a small off-white head. Cola, chocolate aroma. Taste is the same, chocolate notes are slightly bitter, malty....a bit of dark fruit tartness. Not bad, but not memorable.

Bottle. Chocolate, cola, and barley wort aroma. Medium brown with small head. Sweet chocolate barley malt flavor. Okay - a bit underattenuated.

A brewery that I have finally gotten around to sampling is a bit of a let down. Despite a nice price point the result is a bland boring doppelbock that I was indifferent about after just a few sips. Their other beers may be better; I will have to give them at least one more shot. However with places like Country Boy and West Sixth expanding it will be tough to justify on future visits south.

Aroma / Appearance - The brownish base radiates a pleasing warmth. The reverse cascading head grows until it peaks around two fingers high. Cinnamon, cloves, black currants, caramel, red raspberries, and a generally sweet aspect of grocery store chocolate are solid with a few weaknesses around the edges.

Flavor / Palate - Things take a turn for the worse with the first sip. Immediately the taste of Welchs grape juice fills the mouth along with sweet boozy chocolate notes. What was promising at first then continues along in mediocrity like a generic box of Twizzlers. Thankfully the finish is minimal which makes it easy to move on to something better.

decaturstevo (6138) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Deep amber pour with off white head. Aroma is dried fruit and sweet malt. Rich malty flavors with the dried fruit. Light bitter finish. Medium bodied with a tado fizz. A good beer

Opaque dark ruby mahogany, thin head cover, no lace. Taste is a clear toasted malt with a light nuttiness that enters in the palate. A little bittering balances things nicely in the finish. This is a good doppelbock because nothing is overstated. All is well-presented, tasty, and if there is a weakness, it would be the high abv for the strength of the drink. Recommended.

ContemplateBeer (2079) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Aroma: Strong characteristic maltiness (toast, caramel); some tootsie roll-like chocolate. Appearance: Very dark, murky cola red/brown with a bubbly, thin tan head. Flavor: Quite a bit more chocolate character than the aroma; very warming and hearty with some residual booze. Toast tends toward roastiness; caramel more an afterthought. Palate: Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Real nice Doppelbock; could compete with my go to for the style (Weihestephaner Korbinian) if it werent twice the price.

eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bomber. Pours near black with a small head that dissipates into a small ring of lace. Aromas of rasin, other dark fruit, booze, caramel, and light plum. Smooth drinking with dark fruit, light chocolate, bread, and a full finish. Nice brew and glad to have tried.

Tmoney99 (14203) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted sweet malty aroma. Medium to heavy body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good beer.
