MaltOne (371) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Pours clear, medium coffee brown. Fizzy white head, subsides to a lasting froth. Aromas of treacle, caramel, a bit of roastiness, a hint of yeast. Bright but light on the tongue initially, flavor evolves to a medium slightly more roasted malt, and finishes with a lingering hint of darker roast. medium body with a enough fizz to keep it refreshing instead of a coating of flavor. Overall very drinkable, a year round dark session. Great with grilled brats or other wurst.

Not much of a nose. Looks like Coca Cola. Taste is complex, lots of caramel. Medium body with a creamy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown/plum with little carbonation. Taste is sweet plum with a very smooth ending

Color: Dark, small foamy head. Aroma: malty and rich. Taste: bready, toasty, very little hops. Palette: viscous, thick, almost chewy. My favorite doppelbock.

Brown almost black in color. Licorice tasting, but not in a good way. Tastes so bad I had to grimace on every sip. I did finally finish the bottle, but it was a chore. Troegenator is my benchmark to compare other Dopplebocks and this one isn’t even in the same league.

Westy1130 (96) - New York, USA - APR 2, 2017
On tap at Plattduetsche Park biergarten(Oktoberfest). Murky brown color with nutty aroma. Taste of sweet malt, toffee and chestnuts.

danielyabu (1659) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 26, 2017
small frothy offwhite head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. clear average-density dark-brown with ruby highlights body. aroma: moderate malty, raisin, wood. initial flavor: moderate sweet. final flavor: moderate sweet light bitter acidic; average duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, light astringent alcoholic finish. forte dulçor maltado lembrando frutas secas, leve aquecimento alcoolico, leve acidez final lembra ameixa fresca, balanceando o conjunto. A acidez não esta prevista nas bjcp, mas em minha opinião aparece como plus em um conjunto que caso contrário poderia ser enjoativo. 75 s

Draft at Shoal Creek Tavern. Dark brown, with lasting off-white head. Rich, malty aroma. Notes of coffee flavor in the malty backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dorkenstein (545) - - FEB 23, 2017
Aromas of toffee and bread. Taste is berries, toffee, and bread, with a tad bit of smoke and wet leaves in the end.

KevinReddirt (169) - Midland, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Sometimes it just does not connect.The 12 oz. bottle gave up a dark, almost black, liquid with a head that has to be coaxed with the pour. How do I describe the nose, medicinal, perhaps. An improvement with the taste, but only so much. Malt heavy, an astringent edge, a glimmer of sweetness following. Just not my style, Just not my beer.
