Delicious beer. Poured a bright brownish-orange color with a half-inch white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Great hops flavor without being too over the top. mvcramer (243) - Lexington, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Thanks to the good folks at Roadhouse in Brookline for this one. Beautiful brew. Nice caramel brown color and thick off-white head (almost tan). Aroma is sweet malt with a slight alcohol burn as well (though not overpowering). Flavor is balanced malt and just a nice slight touch of hops. Loved it. Wish it were more readily available up here.

Deep amber color with tan foamy head. Nice malty aroma with slight traces of dried fruit. Malty yeasty bread flavour with traces of caramel and spice. Lingering ba;anced aftertaste crajun (1243) - , Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 re-rate 8/14 bottle from bagda83 - bumped from 4.0 cause this is a DAMNGOOOODBEER!!! nails aroma; chewy palate. there is alcohol but it is so well balanced with the malt and toffee that it just warms you . exxxxcellent stuff ..............................................bomb rec’d in trade; dark amber pour. big malt aroma with a little toffee. nice chewy med thick palate. Taste is much sweetness but there is some balance with a kinda toffee medicinal bite (poor description by me). I like this beer; thanks arojewski36 (6) - Old Bridge, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2012 does not count
Definitely my new favorite. Opens with chocolate notes but with a smooth finish unlike any dark beer I’ve ever had. Bravo.

Think I drank the whole keg at the Met in Lima, Ohio over several visits. Bold and Tastey; sweet and roasty; ginger and vanilla in the finish. mcclainc50 (217) - New York, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Pours a nice dark amber color with a medium head that dispates quickly leaving little lacing. Nice malty aroma with a slight sweetness. Very malty flavor with a fruity sweetness and caramel and a little bit of hops bitterness, but very little. A delicious beer worth trying no matter what kind of beer you like.

Excellent aroma full of plums. No hops noticeable on the nose. The appearance is a dark amber brown with an off white head with good head retention. The beer is crystal clear. Flavor wise, it's super malty with lots of melanoidin complexities. Hop flavor is minimal per style. Alcohol warmth is noticeable but smooth in character. The mouthfeel is full and smooth like a milk shake. Overall, it's one of my favorite Dopplebocks. Malty and smooth.

Tasty doppelbock, not the best I had but solid, Malty and boozie as expected, will try again rodisian (66) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 28, 2013
In a word: Delicious. An excellent doppelbock: sure it’s a bit sweet, but again, it’s a doppelbock.
