Copper color, clear. Sweet nose. Light body and flavor, good length. Slightly sweet, enough acidity, low bitterness. Malty, sweet spices, cinammon, yeasty. Pleasant, good example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocJitsu (1864) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Rich, dark, amber pour with a short khaki head. Faint toffee nose. Mildly rich mouthfeel with ample carbonation. Toffee, fruity, and faint horehound.

spittle8 (136) - California, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Sweet, sharp malt aroma. Dark beer but translucent. Moderate head. I’m not impressed with this beer and only rated it after trying it several times.

One of my favorite beers, not too heavy but complex, nice head and color, malty aftertaste but still has that spaten taste in think from the hops, will always buy again

J_man (960) - Tustin, California, USA - APR 23, 2015
Clean malt liquor aroma. Crystal clear dark orange/amber with a very fine head. Creamy, smooth body with lots of roasted malt flavor. Slight wood flavor with sweet cream and a hint of vanilla. Light molasses and caramel sweetness. Earthy, leafy hop bitterness comes out from under the sweetness and the finish is a combination of both. Delicious doppelbock and definitely a classic. Happy German Beer Day 2015 everyone!

Bottle at home. Great choice for a rainy, cool spring evening. Pours an appealing but not imposing dark and somewhat opaque brown with a small tan head. Super roasty and malty which leaves overall impression as sweet. Nutty and earthy as well. Reminiscent of pumpernickel bread or dark caramel. Pretty smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Great example of the style. Alcohol level well hidden- easy drinker for almost 8%.

bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 11, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2015 12 oz refrigerated pour into a shaker pint. Mild head. Fairly dark, mostly opaque. Malty and sweet nose. A little caramel. Mouthfeel is midway between thin and creamy. Pretty thick. Taste is good. Dark, malty, caramely, dark fruit. An aggressive beer. A bit of an alcohol bite on the end.

Bottle pour. This beer is very sweet. Aroma and taste are caramel and sweetness. Very nice.

NotMolly (3) - Sandpoint, Idaho, USA - MAR 20, 2015 does not count
Nice. Almost completely not-bitter, and super-smooth. But it honestly doesn't taste like much. Like Guinness Stout, really, with a tiny bit more carbonation and about triple the flavor. (Guinness Stout tastes almost like water to me.) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
