obguthr (6002) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Banana and graham cracker nose, some plastic notes. Cloudy copper, thin head. Caramel dominated flavor with apple and berry accents. Not tart. A bit chemical. Light body, fizzy. Kind of cheap, but not awful.

Slightly murky brown with tan head. Aroma is a bit like a dusty attic with some dark malt notes. Flavor of dried fruit and nuts. Would not have guessed this to be a dopplebock as it tastes much more like an English Old Ale. Ok but out of normal style guidelines.

Cool 50cl swing top bottle pours a deep ruby red amber-ish sort of color with a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up raisin, spiced red apple wedges and some hazel nut like nuttiness. The taste is similar as it puts out a mix of raisins, cherries and spiced red apples as well as a bit of roasted malts and nuttiness. Interesting estery and also nearly astringent maltiness at times.

Looks nice, after that it is pretty disappointing. Dark orange, slight haze, swirly white top. Nose is grain and a bit of malt. Palate is similar, a bid of dough. None of the complexity, esters, fruitiness I expect or need from a doppelbock. From Trader Joes.

Tmoney99 (13994) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear dark copper with a moderate to large light brown head that last with good lacing. Good caramel toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Good well balanced dark sweet malt flavor with a moderate smooth sweet finish of moderate duration. Good doppelbock.

Dimpled mug. Murky light brown with good head and some lacing. Smell of malts, vanilla and alcohol. Smooth taste and quite enjoyable.

Pours deep amber into a snifter. Off-white head with medium retention recedes to mottle surface. Sour caramel and pit fruit aromas. Soft with dark caramel and sweet toffee upfront turning to pit fruit before the lasting stale malt finish.

It poured cloudy at first, but I was impressed by the bottling and capping techniques. The flavor was similar to darker beers, without that heavy mouth feel or stomach sit. Definitely one I’ll drink again.

A noticeable pop happens when you open the groclsh-top cork. Pours a deep amber color, it is highly carbonated with a slightly off white head. There is a sweet malt and toffee with a slight hint of peaches or plums. Hops not really noticeable in the nose, perhaps a hint of spice. There is some caramel sweetness but has notes of wet paper ( potential oxidation) . There's a more noticeable hop bitterness on the back end, and it finishes sweet with some a tinny malty floral vibe. Some alcohol heat is noticeable and there is a creamy mouthfeel with medium heavy mouthfeel. Not sure if the bottle I had was old, but it seemed kind of oxidized and not expressly enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark golden brown color. Has a honey smell with a bitter malt taste. Would not buy again.
