Huge brown sugar malt aroma on this brew. There's also a slight sour hint of vinegar. Medium heavy body has soft carbonation and is extremely smooth.

Deep, strong and heavy with complex and intense flavorthat is very well balanced.

Falconseye8 (542) - Evans, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Deep Rich Mahoghany color. Little to no head out of bottle. Very smooth and satisfying. Roasty and caramel undertones. As well as coffee flavoring makes this very tasty. Not as good as the Autumnal Fire offering from Capital Brewery. Very good beer. I like it.

I have to admit that this is a style I've not had many of, so I can't speak to its suitability for the style. When I had it, it was served in a snifter. Very dark brown, toasty flavor with just a hintof the hops and alcohol. Definitely makes me want to drink more of this style.

Had a strange sour bread type of aroma, wasn't looking forward to the taste, but I was nicely surprised. Light carmel sweetness, coffee aftertaste. A great after lawn mowing doppel

y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Dark brown almost black color with medium light tan head. Very malty and not very rich aroma. Flavor was one of chocolate and malts. Became more chocolatey as it warmed. Nice doppelbock.

jgb9348 (5915) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Dark brown in colour with major ruby highlights -- absolutely no head. Very malty aroma with a slight grapey and subtle vinegary aroma. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour, alcohol very noticeable with some grapey hints. Aftertaste malty and alcoholic - a bit sweet as well. Overall a good doppelbock - respectable for the style! I had this pint at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.
