I’m not a big fan of Dopplebocks, but this funkyily awesome one from New Holland is something special. The smoke and rye malt pair well together and pull off a balance of smokey/sweet/malty/crisp to perfection. wlajwl (7063) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2012
Heavy malts and smoke in aroma. The flavor is mildly sweet maltiness, campfire smoke, next to no bitterness and a hint of banana in the finish. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Bomber bottle and served in NB worthy snifter: Deep mahogany hue with a fading frothy head and minimal lace. The aroma is SMOKE, RYE, and MOLASSES BABY! It hits you right bout the head and says "lets rock" geek-a-zoid. The taste completely follows suit and in this case it is a damn good thing... smoked WOOD, smoked BACON and smoked GRAINS combined with the sweet and fruity undertones to lay layers of complex RYE forced flavors.arkurzynski (2463) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Completely in your face and wonderful for it. DIG IT or U R Lost in America, Welcome to My Nightmare 4 this is simply the best beer that New Holland ever did, know that. werd Mikey. I think I just may have Jizz In My Pants, truth.
Beautiful red-brown mix - one of the best looking doppelbocks I’ve laid eyes on. Carbonation that churns the beer.Aroma deep deep dark fruit, sweet malt, burnt caramel, mild alcohol. Smoke aroma is very different - earthy charcoal. Wow - taste is highly roasted malts, and prominent rye. Smoke flavor is also pretty prominent on the finish. Great warm, dry roasted finish. Style points on this one, a unique offering. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours an extremely dark brown with a moderate white head. Nose is extremely smoky, as you would expect from the style. Smoke comes through in the taste amazingly, too. Would be AWESSOME with meat.

Whoa! Man, love this beer right off. Yummmmmm.... Served with a large, foamy, light tan head and a little lace. Color is deep dark amber with chestnut hightlights. Aroma is a luscious, rich, smokey, dark malt, raisins, dark ripe fruit, leather, and a bit of dark cocoa. Flavor’s about the same with sweetness coming out at the end. Great body and carbonation. Boozy at the very end. A session beer for slow, easy quaffing. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2012
(bottle - 22 oz - 2011 vintage) Copper pour with a thick and fluffy tan head. Big smoke and bacon aroma with some light caramel and malt notes. Flavor is a wonderful smoky beginning with some mild sweetness which is a bit odd at first, but the warmer it gets, the smoke really takes over. Big thumbs up.
