Bottle. Pours clear tawny with a small, frothy light tan head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is smoked malt and meat, dates, figs, and plums, earthy hops, caramel and cookie malt. Flavor is malt forward with substantial smoke, dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and medium-light carbonation.

Bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a clear deep caramel brown color with a small and rapidly diminishing off white head. The aroma was meaty smoked malts, moderately sweet malt, hint of earth. The flavor was more meaty smoke, dark caramel and some woody notes. Fairly smooth.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Bottle, shared by brew3crew. Clear red / brown color. Thin-to-minimal bubbly khaki head. Little dots of lace. Smoke evident in the nose, some vegetable. Bigger body, smooth light carbonation. Viscous, but more dry in the finish. Nice big smokey flavor in the taste. Good savory. Little dark fruit, caramel malts. Its got nothing on Aechts (this is more vegetal and rich), but still pretty nice 6/3/7/4/14

Re-rate during an RBWG 2014 bottle share, thanks to whomever shared this: Hazy dark brown, red color. Thin off-white khaki head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice smokey aroma. Good, light dark fruity bready aroma. Moderate light sweet taste, light savory. Hint of spice. Very nice smoked doppelbock. Very solid. Pretty sweet and savory, though. I should love this, not a huge fan, though.

Bomber to snifter (thanks brew3crew). Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells solid; smoke and sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

chinchill (4762) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2014
shared 22oz bottle poured with a clear brown body and a decent head. A good bit of medium roasted malt flavor but the moderately smokey nose is followed by an overly smokey flavor.

suprchunk (2986) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Flat dark brown pour. Not much of a head. I even forced it. Little bit of lacing. Smells like a malty doppelbock with a bit of smoke in the background. Tastes malty, with some raisin notes and a bit of smoke in the background. Sweet finish. Not bad.
