A very thick, rich doppel. It pours a deep copper color with a frothy tan head. Sweet, sweet malty aroma with dark dried fruits. Thick, almost chunky in the mouth. Very malty flavoring, toffee, a yeaty fruitiness, and a dash of grassiness. Left my face & hands sticky from drinking it. Good stuff, if a tad bit too sweet for me.

I was very impressed with this beer, even beyond the expectations that come from the Paulaner name. It had a defining doppelbock aroma, and a very rich and thick, malty body. This will definately get more playing time. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2004
This brew pours such an intense red with a tall off-white head that leaves thick lacing. Sweet malt smell and taste in both the aroma and taste. Notes of caramel, fruit, and wheat, with a well balanced finish and malty aftertaste. Very smooth and medium to thick bodied brew. dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2004
Clear red colour, big, foamy head. Very malty, sweet and caramelly aroma. Taste is also very caramelly, sweet, malty. Also slightly fruity, like figs and dates. An excellent Doppelbock. Medium-bodied and not as rich as the best doppelbocks, but still very good and complex. Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Pours a dark copper with a nice head and a nice lace.
Nice nose! Big and malty with dark fruits, raisins, figs and apples, somewhat tart as well.
Very Very caramelly and unbelieveably malty. Pretty hoppy as well. Awesome for the style.

Sparkling clear ruby body with a lasting dense light tan head. Lacing is quite nice. The aroma is tons of malt, sweet caramel, molasses and hints of citrus The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma would lead you to believe. A good bit of bitterness and alcohol are also in the mix. Medium full syrupy body with some alcohol in the finish. Once a staple of my beer diet years ago, I now see it for what it is, a decent but not exceptionaly dopplebock.

Light auburn coloration, thick off-white head. Aroma is fruity (Pineapple, Peaches) with heavy wheat. Easy drinking, but uneventful & bland. Slightly mettalic, with caramel. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 22, 2004
very caramel nose. caramel taste also but hops and yeast invade. end of the night beer for me this time around so theres some alcoholic influence. still a delicious beer Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Appearance: clear, gorgeous, deep garnet hue, with a fine, fuzzy cocoa-colored head.
Aroma: bready, yeasty, but soft, slightly hoppy and spicy, with some traces of fruit.
Taste: smooth flavor, but soon fruity flavors, derived from malt, dominate the palate. Tasty,. tasty, rich and malty, improving exponentially as we go!
Bright, shiny, delicious, with alcohol content eventually rearing it’s powerful head. Flavor feels burnished, roasted, still fruity, and let us never forget, delicious. A world class beer, a champion doppelbock, and surprisingly approachable.

Copper pour with an initially voluminous frothy head, which receded nicely. Malty aroma with some earthy notes and caramel. Very creamy mouthfeel. Taste is malty as well and slightly sweet. Nice finish maybe a bit of lingering alcohol. I’m surprised how smooth this one went down. Tasty
