a nice dopple malty and rich in flavor,mid range on the after taste.a slight detection of alcohol but nothing that would set this one back ucsbdude (68) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - NOV 16, 2002
A well balanced doppel bock. An appetizing hop and malt aroma. Smooth syrupy body with a dry hoppy finish. TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2002
This ’Doppel Bock’ does not have the ’teeth’ of most dopple bocks I have had, but it is stil a kick-ass litte beer. NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2003
(bottle) Pours a reddish-brown with a creamy head. Crystal clear. Immediate & long-lasting sweet malty taste with a slight amount of hopping that kicks in after a second or two. This is probably the easiest doppelbock to put away quickly that I've ever experienced. No clue that the alcohol content is so high until it's too late--very well masked. POW! Who just hit me between the eyes with a mallet? This holds its own with almost any of the more expensive doppelbocks, imported or domestic... hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - APR 13, 2002
Not bad - it comes on pretty strong with some winey notes in the intense malt, but if you can stomach such high pitched advocacy, it settles into a round, robust, smokey goodness.

This has a terribly nice aroma and a fantastic blend of Germanic spicy hops and sweet, clean malt. The flavor is rather sweet, not a ton of depth or complexity, but extremely tasty. I really like this a lot. Thanks a lot, Slikwily. Gmku (303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Doppel meaning double not single and yet not dubbel nor trippel, that of the liquid bread this, the task fo the monks of Saint Francis of Paula, sweet and profound, I do bend on one knee to thee. omhper (24959) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2002
Reddish brown. Big powerful maltiness. Complex. Rather bitter finish. A nice doppelbock.

Sampled this back-to-back with their regular bock. Wasn’t quite the step up in strength that I had expected. The chocolatey taste was a little bit more pronounced and the mouthfeel was more satisfyingly thick. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Color is a dark amber glow with a huge foamy tan head thats nearly three fingers high. Has a nice sweet bread-like malt like cookie dough and has some bright hops, very fresh. Taste is a fairly sweet and somewhat chewy malt, thin syrupy feel with a nice underlying of hop dryness. Feel is mediumd bodied, fresh and clean, slightly syrupy and very smooth. This is one drinkable beer, goes down smooth and has a good, golden fresh flavor thats just great and goes down with ease.
