2006 vintage on tap at MBGSF 2011. Pours a lightish brown with an off-white head. Distinct prune and molasses aroma. Similar flavor, molasses and raisin, slight hint of oxidation. Pretty nice vintage beer.

bottle pours dark amber with a little off white head. aroma is pretty strong nutty malty and alcohol mix. Not too pleasant and something seems off. I cant even taste this or describe how horrible it is. I get what i think would be a cigarette butt in a bad bock with no mouthfeel. This could be the worst beer I have ever had. American light lager is a better choice...drain pour!

I dont know if this bottle is just old or what, but its not good. Aroma is weak and lightly smells of nuts and caramel. Pours a reddish amber with little head. Taste is like a sweet caramel and nut tea......heavy on the tea. Palate is a bit thin and watery. Could be an old bottle but Im thinking I probably wont be trying any fresh bottles. Pour.

RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Clear coppery amber pour...moderate off white head that lingers but briefly. Nose is sweet caramel/toffee, dark fruit, sweet malt, alcohol. Flavors are also predominantly sweet in profile...dark fruit, alcohol, caramel/toffee, roasted sweet malt, light hop bitterness in the background. Decent example of the style, but kind of middle of the road enough that its tough to get excited by it to any extent.

Cloudy brown pour with a thin beige head. Malty, sugary aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet with a rich maltiness and a very thin hop profile. Smooth and good.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2009
Copper with a medium tan head. Aroma of Munich and sweet malts, alcohol and mild dough. Tastes a bit too much like an Oktoberfest to me. Munich malts, nuts, mild caramel and alcohol. Finish is mildly dry and metallic with some cola like qualities.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2009
22 oz. Brown/amber pour, very minimal off white head. Some sweet aromas, malt, caramel. Taste is some sweet malt, caramel, toffee, yellow raisin. Body is a little thin, the flavors are a bit subdued from this also. Finish is a little lingering sweetness. Overall just a little wishy washy. Not bad but kind of average. I believe there is some age on this since the white caps as far as I know have been retired for a while now. A drinkable example of the style, but not outstanding.

Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Caramel malty body with a light nuttiness and a thin wood feel. Light alcohol sweet fruit. Hop character is grassy with caramel. good brew.

Stupid deleted ratings. 22oz bottle, no date from General Gao--thanks Colin. Pours a clear copper with a one finger beige head, slowly fading to a thick ring and film. Aroma of dirty caramel and toffee with some green and fall leaves mixed in. Flavor adds a decaying grain tang and light green hops with a little bit of raisin sweetness. the finish is semi-dry with bitterness peaking around a 2. Low to moderate carbonation with a medium body. Not too bad, but I would not necessarily buy this one again.

Crushed with Jakebra. Sweet nose. Celebrator destroyed my impression of doppels, but I still havent met one I didnt like. Pretty sweet, but its very drinkable and smooth.
