On tap, Bavarian Grill, Plano. Impressive sized mug arrived at the table dark amber-black, average off-white head. The food had arrived by this point so I couldn’t make out too much of the aroma, some light caramel/toasted malt/biscuit. On the tongue, very alcohol-forward, but the strong, balanced roasty-toasty flavors came through as well. You don’t have to be a huge dopplebock fan to like this beer, as it is rich & thick yet has a moderate sweetness & soft carbonation that make it very approachable. And it goes without saying, supremely excellent with German food!

Just had a bottle but I am really buzzed. I think it's just wonderful. Will have to try again straight as a first beer Nice complexity but overly sweet. Earthy. roasted malt forward with a slight bitter finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2017 Smells amazing. Has a very malty taste with hints of caramel. Not bitter at all, but not too sweet either. Has a rich roast/toffie smell. Very enjoyable especially in cooler weather.

For the price and ABV, it's hard to beat. This is likely my backup beer in case I was to drink two in a night. I like to open with a fruit based IPA, and then use this as reserve. It's only $9 and 7.6% ABV. You wish Guiness would put together a package like this for price and six beers, but alas. Mostly it's a malty slop of beer, which is what I want sometimes. It's also eminently drinkable.

Twelve ounce bottle from mix 6 pack purchased at Ingles Supermarket in Lake Lure, North Carolina, tasted on July 24, 2017. Cola color, big roasted malt nose, good malty taste with some complexity but compromised by astringency. Maybe the megabrewer has changed this beer, and not for the better.

Dark pour with a thin but tight head. Sweet and malty with lots of dark fruit.

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
