Whoa - Molasses! Nice pour. Tan head with lace that comes back whenever you swirl it. Malty. Kind of sweet and as mentioned...molasses. Very nice, but the sweetness can get to be a little much after 2 bottles. Nice kick at 7.5% abv,but it’s evident. chicagobears (474) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Appears dark red with a bready beige head.
A bitter sweetness, a bit sticky. Buttery thick, soothing taste with a hoppy finish. tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2006
UPDATED: APR 10, 2006 Øl (50 cl) købt i Tyskland.
Øllen er klar rød, og har næsten ingen hvidt skum (falder hurtigt). Virker meget sprittet fra start, men bliver bedre efterhånden som den bliver varmere.
Smagen er bitter-sød, og maltagtig.

mostly diminushing small frothy tan head that tops up a clear dark mahogany body. Moderate lacing. No particules. Aroma is medium roasted crisp caramel malt while hops are very faint and yeast is light earth. Also, there are evident traces of plum prune and faint notes of pear . Initial flavor is medium sweet caramel malt while development is leading toward a cherry feeling. Finish is medium and shows notes of alcohol. medium to full body.. creamy texture... Lively carbonation..
A clean, well built doppelbock.
Great frothy head that stay for the duration. Full body with a lot of flavor. A very good specimen...

Great doppelbock from paulaner brewerie. Although it is quite rich and full, it is not overpowering. Lasts shortly on the palate, and the flavor is somewhat spicy, but less than some of the other German doppelbocks. The color is not too "cola-like" either.

Bottle. An excellent Doppelbock. Not too sweet, but very malty. Clean tasting. Quite rich. Nice copper color. BeerandBlues2 (13595) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Bottle. Pours coppery mahagony with a tall foamy tan head and sticky lacing. Medium roasted caramel malt (meal) and yeast (sweat, earth) aromas with dark fruit (prune, plum) and port notes. Moderate bitterness and acidity, medium sweetness and malty flavor, fruity hop and alcohol round out the flavor. Warm and full bodied, spicy palate. auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Bottle. Darkish red colored pour with a small head. Smoked cherry wood, spicy kinda sweet flavor. Not bad, but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. May have to try this again later. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - FEB 8, 2006
This beer has lost some character over the years. Clearly this beer has been re-formulated to reach a larger audience. Its still VERY well made, but the magic for me with this beer, has slipped. What was once a stellar example of dopplebock, has become a very good one, but a shadow of what it once was. Salvator pours to a bright, deep caramel color, with a thick, white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose as some good sweet malty, nutty, and toasty malt aroma. The body is firm, with some good sweet malty, and toasty malt flavor. Finishes clean, with good sweet and toasty malt, with a slight, alchol burn. Still an excellent dopplebock, but once had much more depth in malt aroma, flavor, and character over all. 10 years ago this beer would have been a 5.
