CapFlu (5103) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
(11,2oz bottle) Purchased at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY. Pours a thin, quick dissipating white creamy head with a slow moving, lightly carbonated (looks like air bubbles in oil) amber body. Nose of strong malt and a dog food bag (grainy, musky and stale). Texture is thick and oily with a pastey finish. Flavour is fairly crisp - with a nicely malted, corny and thinly alcoholic. Its more of a well balanced malt liquor than a doppelbock in style and flavour but hey - its a good one none the less.

Very aromatic. Caramel comes through strong. Flavor is strong and tasty. Do not guzzle.

shrubber85 (10932) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Bottle. Very fruity aroma - peach/cherry. Golden yellow with small head. Peach nectar up front - very sweet - with a bitter, alcohol finish. An okay sipping beer - more like a sweet wine though.

bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 18, 2006
"Poured an orage/amber color with thin head which disappeared quickly. Smelled of carmel and alcohol and spices. Tasted sweet and fruity, with some spices. Not bad over all."

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2006
33 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Golden clear colour with a weak head. Very malty aroma. Also malty flavour with a warm feeling from the alcohol. Very tastful of malt.

Bottle. Ooh. Strong banana nut bread comes wafting off this pale golden brew. Rather light colored compared to other doppelbocks Ive had. Whoa! Its got a little bit of alcohol here, banana rum! A little brown sugar mama! Very surprising. Surprising this is seen so low among doppelbocks, its got a very distinctive flavor and its rather enjoyable. A lot lighter than most doppelbocks, so maybe theres a biace, but its got a very enjoyable fruit spice alcoholiness that is more flavorful than any other bock type of beer Ive had. One bas note is that it has a bit of a cloying burnineness to it that is vaguely reminiscent of the samichlaus, like a shadow of that, that makes you want to stop drinking it a bit.

unibaren (157) - 8000 rhus C, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2006
Sweet oaky and pleasant aroma. Golden colour with no head at all. Except for the faint signs of carbonation, you would think the beer had been poured yesterday. Malt and alcohol sweetness dominates the flavour, with a long dry bitterness in the aftertaste. Very rich, but the balance between sweet and bitter is off, and the beer ends up being too sweet for me.
