ccex (1240) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2013
12 oz. bottle pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and a moderate tand head + decent lacing. Aroma is that of a malt bomb: bread, caramel, dark fruits and perhaps a bit of chocolate, but nothing roasty/toasty despite the color. Taste is sweet but not cloying. Alcohol is well hidden for 10+%. Body is medium to full without too much carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky. A very good American dopplebock which serves its purpose as liquid bread

DrnkMcDermott (3048) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Single bottle, 99 cents at Binnys (!) July 2010. Got too many cellarable doppelbocks staring at me when I want something for the holiday weekend, so this one seems ready for sacrifice. Pours nearly black, slight brown highlights where possible. Thin tan head that fizzes for a while, then settles to a small parfait layer. Deep malty nose with a bit of grain, but otherwise mellowed out with age. Taste is a nice thick malt bomb. No roast to it, with alcohol in the form of, perhaps, Kahlua. Chocolate-covered cherries. Bananas Foster. All sorts of good things, mostly fruity esters, go into this malt. Then theres a slight roastiness to the follow, but less than youd expect from this black brew.

Very thick and potent dopplebock, for stout drinkers. If celebrator were a doppelbock it would be this.

On tap at WI Microbrewers Fest. Deep amber brown in color. Good malty nose, some dark fruit. Clean malty profile with some roasted characteristics. Finally what Ive been looking for from Sand Creek.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2010
Big caramel aroma and taste. Some dark fruit and a little bit of smoke. ABV is subdued, but evident. Not too sweet. Put together really well, and quite enjoyable.
