12oz bottle thanks to Toby. Pours out a crisp amber topped with a sand head. Nose is pit fruit rich malts spice and a nice sweetness. Taste is more of the pit fruit sweetness and rich malts with a little spice. cwill (92) - Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2016
Pours with a beautiful dark amber red color. Aroma is sweet brown candied sugar with a strong hint of maple syrup and dark fruits and malts. The taste follows the nose. The first flavor comes straight from the maple syrup notes, but the malts and plum come in after, giving it a sweet flavor that is delicious. Hints of caramel on the finish. Full bodied creamy mouth feel. 8% alcohol is nowhere to be found. Outstanding beer drcboehm (104) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2016

It pours amber. It has aromas of caramel and dark fruits. There are caramel flavors with dark fruits, and a rich sweet malt. It has moderate carbonation, a moderate feel, and it is moderately bitter. It does have slight alcohol warmth. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Pours a reddish brown. Sweet caramel/roasty aroma. Roast malt/chocolate flavor with a touch of fruit and great hops.

Everything aside for a second...this beer is beautiful looking. Deep cordovan, rich looking beer. Smells nutty and caremel-y. There’s some toffee and sweet maltiness. Aroma isn’t in your face, but it’s definitely good. Taste is hazelnut, caramel, toffee and grainy. Like it says on the can, it’s definitely chewy as advertised. It feels like a big beer, but the alcohol is well hidden. Overall, it’s a great tasting doppelbock. Liquid bread is pretty accurate. zoucrew102 (1869) - - APR 17, 2016
Bottle, thanks Christina! Rich caramel aroma with notes of toffee, bread and dark fruit. Pours dark copper colored with a thin tan head that has poor retention and lacing. Starts with sweet caramel and toffee malt flavors with just a touch of chocolate. Finishes smooth with bready malt, dark fruit sweetness and a pinch of hoppiness. Really nice bock without the booziness of most. migwell (365) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 31, 2016
Bottle into snifter. Beautiful ruby red color, pretty flat and looks like port wine in the glass. Smells of dark sugar. Medium light body. low carbonation. I don’t find this particularly sweet for the style, nor does the alcohol overwhelm the taste. Rich flavor with a bit of caramel and chocolate and hops, but everything is well balanced and gives this often fairly simply style a nice complexity. Although I like the style, I don’t drink a lot of dopplebocks, but if I do, this is one I will seek out nota (47) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Reddish-brown, transparent with slightly tanned head and ultra-fine carbonation. Caramel, toffee, raisin, fig, pumpernickel bread crust. Not as warm and boozy as expected but still an excellent, comforting brew. Finishes with sweetness slightly cut by toasted bread. thegreenrooster (4396) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is dark fruit on buttery dark bread. Flavor is something like an unsweetened raison bread. You get a bit of the dark fruit but also a decent drying bready feel. There is a bit of caramel felt after the swallow but not enough to be overly sweet. I don’t have many dobblebocks but I would this one would be high on my list just for the dark fruit flavor alone.
