Very little hop aroma in this beautiful dark ruby/brown lager. Smell is of unfermented wort, like homebrew before you pitch the yeast. Nice and sweet like it should be, with a full mouthfeel. Slight twang on the finish that just keeps it from being cloying. I want to brew a clone! JoeM500 (1909) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Superbly sweet, and higher in alcohol (barely hidden), this is a perfect example of the style, very middle of the road, but very authentic doppelbock. Malts are very dominant, overly sweet to my palate (bordering on disgusting). bac080 (398) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2003
This really kicked me in the head. I had much higher hopes for it. It wasn't BAD but I've had better. IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2003 What hasn't been said already? It's a solid doppelbock all across the board. It's very inexpensive as well. igneous1 (1538) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - AUG 20, 2003
heavily carbonated, deep amber color with a decent light tan head. aroma is huge on bready malt. flavor is wonderfully malty with a hint of chocolate and slight bitterness in the finish. alcohol is mostly undetectable, but there is a hint of it. very good.

Very dark appearance, heavy full bodied beer. Notes of caramel or molasses. This is one great bock. tallmatt67 (99) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2003
(bottled) Subtle roasty, prune & caramel aroma. Brilliant dark reddish brown appearance. Rich base of Munich malt with a raisin & prune sweetness, crystal malt color and aroma. Full bodied with medium creamy carbonation. A sure winner! Why the green bottle? vector (163) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2003
Excellent doppelbock. Poured a dark cola color with large but quickly diminishing head). Aroma of sweet roasted malt, raisin and caramel. Floavor was much of the same, very sweet, slightly toasty. Mouthfeel was creamy like milk. Clean, dry finish. humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - AUG 8, 2003
On tap at der Stienkeller. Man, I do love a good Doppelbock and this baby has it all. Smooth mellow malts with prune and raison and roasted malt and earthy yeast orchestrated into a fine drinking excursion. Nothing fills a 1 liter stien with more style and authenticity. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 5, 2003
I got this one on a recommendation from one of the guys where I buy my beer. I was quite impressed when I got it home and drank it. I very good doppelbock. POurs very thick and dark, with zesty creamy head. Taste is a somehwat syrupy sweet caramel malt flavor, with hints of raisins and cinnamon, kind of a rum like aftertaste.
