Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours a clear brown with a off white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma of toffee, caramel, dried fruits, nuts and a hint of booze on the end. Taste is sweet caramel, bready nuts with a nice alcohol warming. Full bodied beer with lots of smooth sweetness and a high abv and medium carbonation. Overall its a really good doppelbock thats easy to drink.

neongolden (1531) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
(650mL bottle from LCBO) Poured dark copper with a slight haze and a tan head. Aroma caramel-heavy with a bit of spicebox and nuttiness. Flavour dominated by brown sugar, maple syrup, slight rasin and a bit of nutty bitterness to dry it down on the finish. Finish neither very bitter nor cloying, but brief. Palate somewhat oily, moderate carb for the style, alcohol came through as it warmed. Kind of bland and sugary, lacked the malt complexity of a good doppelbock.

Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours a nice deep brown color with ruby highlights topped with an uneven, frothy, cream head. Aroma has a very sweet profile with a strong raisin sweetness, light leathery notes, some earthy hops hit the nose and a fairly strong alcohol and toasted malt notes. Flavor has notes of raisin, caramel, toffee, slight nutty middle, light earthy hops kick and a touch of coffee in the finish. Palate is very odd as my taste buds seemed to be in shock initially from the amount of flavor and alcohol that was bombarding them. Good density, perfect amount of carbonation for both the flavor and head retention through the entire sampling. Overall a pretty good brew. After the initial shock to the taste buds wore off, the flavors tended to melt a bit better. My only knock on this is that the alcohol presence is a tad bit on the high side (even for dopppelbocks) but not so much so that its a deal breaker. Solid offering by Tree Brewing overall.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2012
Bomber from the LCBO and the dark recesses of the back of my fridge - boo-ya!!! Clear light copper, large frothy tan head. Lightly nutty aroma, interesting plum overlay, somewhat floral. Taste follows, really well balanced, a little earthy - light body, mild carbonation, quick finish. Simple, light, hides the alcohol well - really tasty.

rejtable (2565) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2012
Not bad at all. Pours amber-brown wih some head that goes away quickly, and no lacing. Nose is limited. Aromas of toffee, some dark fruit, some brown bread. Tastes are medium sweet. Light ish body. Alcohol pretty well hidden. Decent beer in a category with some standouts.
