Very cool pour, ligher almost amber/brown in colour with a medium brown frothy head that is short lasting. The nose is slightly alcohol with malts barley in the nose. Some hints of caramel. The taste is swweeetness of malts very present with lots of caramel in the end. VERY GOOD. The body is full and vapourish. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 29, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Had this on tap at the brewery. Such a nice surprise! rich malt character with a high alcohol content. UPDATE 1/07: Pours dark brown with an off white head. This seems much thinner than I originally scored it. I’m lowering my score from a 3.7. hershiser2 (3660) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Nice burnt-orange color, but has no head to speak of.
Only the faintest floral scent, but it's so far away that it's almost undetected.
Very alcohol flavored, moreso than beers I've had with more alchohol in them. A little too much for me, though I have to give it a 3.0 for its own defined flavor.
Pretty thin in the mouth, feels like I'm drinking beer that's been iced down, or alcohol mixed with a shot of 7-up.
IT'S OK beer, but most likely this will be my only sampling time. PBOYNY (316) - Westchester, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2003
nice bock, pleasnt aftertaste, nothing amazing here, but a very standard, decent brew Beaver (1845) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2003
The Butthead Doppelbock poured a thick reddish-brown with a smallish head that quickly dissipated to a thin lacing. It had a nice malty aroma with hints of caramel and toffee and alcohol. It has a nice full-bodied taste but was a little syrupy. It has a strong toffee and roasted malt flavor with some spiciness and fruitiness to it and a little medicinal probably due to the alcohol.

Pours amber with virtually no head. Aroma is sugary and malty. Flavor is this along with toffee, caramel, and some spiciness. Mouth feel is syrupy and finish is gaggingly sweet to me. Perhaps I need to try a few more. Indra (2710) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Sweet, malty aroma, with rather interesting hints of praline, cinnamon, brown sugar, very faint Hallertau spice and dark breadiness. Medium-dark amber color, clear, head and lacing both seem sparse. Toffeeish flavor profile, with accents of milk chocolate and butterscotch. Finishes with a brief offset of hop spice and bitterness, along with some fading esters, faint earthiness and lingering sugary sweetness. Indeed, surprisingly tasty. igneous1 (1538) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2003
burgundy color with brownish tones. no head. lots of caramel, maple syrup and some alcohol in the nose. lots of caramel in the flavor, very thick mouthfeel, and some brown sugar in the finish. surprisingly good beer from an otherwise average brewer.

A nice red brown color, with a rather small, off white head start this brew. Nose is mostly malt, but nice. Interesting flavor, with a very strong carmel presence. Good, but something strange about this one which I'm not sure I really like. Crash (549) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Smelled like caramel which gave it a creamy appearance. It had a sweet taste and after-taste that didn't last too long. It had a full creamy body.
