Fatehunter (2342) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Pours a half finger of head on a black body. The aroma is mild caramel malt and a touch of lemon. The taste is pretty mild for a doppelbock. Mild caramel sweetness with balanced bitterness. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. An easier drinking doppelbock. Enjoyable.

A half finger of head on a dark brown colored body. The smell is faint overall: roasted malt and candy. The taste is good: roasted malt, bread, malt sweetness and a tiny lemon bitterness at the end. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation and medium body. A nice, solid doppelbock.

Dark ruby/mahogany with a half-finger off-white head and minimal lace. Aromas of toasted malt, yeasty bread, dark fruit and brown sugar. Flavors of fig and plums, with a touch of spice, warming alcohol and some bittering earthy hops. Medium body and carbonation, incredibly smooth mouthfeel and a long warm finish.

Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a mix of sugar and loads of dark fruit. Lots of plumbs and figs. Flavor is pure raison juice with a bit of treacle and toffee. This was such a dark fruit forward beer. One of the best dopple bocks Ive had in a long time. This beer leaves so much raison on the tongue you may think you are eating a box of sun-maids.

beer_rookie (445) - Arkansas, USA - APR 17, 2016
Pours a dark mahogany color. About one finger mocha colored head. Poor retention, okay lacing. Its so dark, its hard to see it. But from what I see, it looks good.

Aroma is coffee, chocolate and malts. Lots of fruits. Raisins, cherry, figs,. Smells great.

Taste follows the nose. Very malty, no hops. Very fruity with cherries, raisins, figs. Sweet, no bitterness. A little alcohol burn, but cant taste the alcohol. Chocolate and toffee.

Mouthfeel is full bodied. Creamy and rich, but has alcohol burn. Cant taste the alcohol. Be careful, high ABV, sweet and easy drinking, could make for trouble. Drinkable yes, sessioinable...no.

Overall, its rather tasty and enjoyable. I dont have much more to say about it. I would buy it again and I would recommend it. Its mighty fine!

vyvvy (5973) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 3, 2016
The beer pours deep brown with a reddish hue with a beige head. The aroma has toffee, rich malt, some dark fruit/berries and lager smoothness. It has a medium body with some mild carbonation. The taste starts with dark toasty bread, lager smoothness and burnt toffee. The finish is pretty dry while maintaining the richness. Pretty good.

theOptimator (368) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Aroma is bright sweet caramel malt with hint of chocolate roast. Appearance is dark brown with redish tint, medium off white head. Taste is bright sweet malt followed by a light chocolate bread crust followed by a light herbal hop flavor/bitterness. Palate is medium. Crisp yet full, hides alcohol well. Overall a very nice beer. Not a world class example, but has some malt depth and very clean. Good example of the style

A great Doppelbock, very well balanced. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smell is raisins and caramel. Taste is very well balanced with a nice amount of hops. Well done. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

"not a bad beer, but sub par for one of my favorite styles. slighlty lacking in the big body. the malt character is there as well, but not robust enough. it didnt help that it was served too cold, but i got the idea as it warmed up a little. pleasing, if a little lite for the style. 1/11 - had it again in the bottle at proper temp, and raised the score 0.1
