Very black in color with a slightly smokey and yet subtly sweet taste to it. A beer I would definitely have again. Truebrew69 (19) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Lots of chocolate and malty flavors on this one! Good flavor, nice, tasty beer overall. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUN 7, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown color with an off white head that is very frothy and dissipates to a thin film that laces nicely down the glass. Aroma mostly of sweet dark chocolate and some underlying earthy hops. Has an big chocolate taste that is overly sweet. Not very enjoyable. The mouthfeel is thick with moderate carbonation. The flavor does not follow through with the great setup from the appearance and aroma. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2013
12oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Rob! Low nut and toasted cocoa aroma. Frothy and fresh. Heavy on the melanoidin dark, toasted malts. A little glassy and crystalline and not quite as smooth, silky, and creamy as I would hope for the style, but still decent and clean with quality lagering.

7.0 abv dark brew with bit of cocoa and rum makes piney hop character seem like licorice in the foam. mellow and a bit of fruit in banana not overdone. some roasty caramel.

Bottle: (labelled as 7.0%)

Bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Stockholm, VasagatanTravlr (25177) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Dark brown color, clean, with some amber-red reflex, and medium sized beige compact head. The aroma is quite American, the yeast produced more fruity esters than a true German Bock; there is also some caramel and light roasted malt. The mouthfeel is lean, dry, partially smooth; roasted malt and dark caramel flavor, with a trace of liquorice.
A good beer, nothing to do with Doppelbocks (lighter, with a bit too much roasted malt, and the liquorice).
Bottle. Cloudy brown color, medium off white head. Aroma of smokey toffee. Taste is sweet caramel. Plain. atlrizzob (225) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Smells choclately. Dark like my soul. I love the toasted charcoal coffee taste. Reved my engine. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with very little head on it. Nose is very malty with a lot of caramel malts in there. Taste is just a tad sweet and a tad roasty. Very smooth and light.
