The head is ok, the body brown. It smells malty, bit alcoholic, darkmalty, grain. The taste is malty, bit dry bit alcoholic-dry, maltaromatic, less hoppy. Nice, not that sweet like the most Dopppelbock in Germany but on his dry way very tasty. Travlr (24665) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Draft at Bel-Aire, recommended by Ray, thank you sir! Nice variegated amber brown color, small beige head with good retention. Aroma of lightly toasted caramel and nuts. Taste is sweet and malty with a bit of roasted nuts. Very nice. Ungstrup (37560) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of pumpernicle bread, alcohol, and honey. The flavor is sweet with notes of cardboard, dusty hops, caramel, and alcohol, that makes its mark felt on the tongue. The finish contains a bit of strored fruit. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Chocolatey with allspice and candied fruit aromas and flavours. A pleasant drop made well but not as forceful as authentic doppelbocks that I have tasted in the past. But credit where it is due, at least it is within style guidelines unlike a certain mainstream NZ brewery’s doppelbock down to the -ator name.

Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a brief medium brown head. Aroma is very nice-- sweet brown bread, molasses, chocolate. Oddly, these all fade before the glass is half consumed, leaving a woody caramel aroma behind. Flavours of bread crusts, treacle, chocolate, and hints of coffee are all nice. Medium bodied, and despite the ABV there is no trace of booziness or alcohol. Finish is mildly bitter. Nice.

Bottle, shared by papsoe. It pours an amber, clear body with a decent beige head. Malty nose with caramel and beefstock. The flavor is on the malty side too, with a little fruity touch. Caramel, beefstock and some roasted notes. Caramel-malty finish. Medium body with a pleasant cabonation. Far from my favorite doppelbock, but a decent beer.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden hazzlenut brown with a lacing off-white head. Barley and malty roasted aroma. Sweet flavour of barley, caramel and mild breadish. Lingering malty and slight breadish. Light alcohol presence and warmth into the finish. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 31, 2008
Bottle, pours a deep brown colour with a large foamy off white head. A malty aroma, sweet and a little grainy, with noticeable alcohol and vinous hops. A full malty palate, chocolately, with the finish interestingly mellow but short. Can’t put my finger on exactly why, but I like this.
