this beer had the distinct disadvanage to being drunk in between several stouts, but it managed to hold it's own. I liked the flavor, but in the end, ended up going back to my stouts... JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Dark amber, bordering on brown. Ecru heavy dense head. Malt and sourdough aroma. Lightly smoked grain flavors. Some scotch qualities. Quite dry and slightly acetic. Mid to heavy feel. For the content, the alcohol is hard to find. Not a lot of depth. Finish is somewhat nutty and dry. iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2004
A pretty good doppel by an American micro. Sweetish in both taste and aroma with some alcohol on the nose. Not a tremendously heavy body, but almost there. Good deep color. MartinT (9851) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2010 Fruity Munich malts offer cherry angles to their mild caramel apport...Carbonation is loose, making the mouthfeel juicy; the head of foam quickly dissipates to an ailing ring atop the regal mahogany...Alcohol is not apparent in the flavor profile, which is appreciated, but this has mouthfeel issues to be taken care of to become as drinkable and refined as the best authentic examples of the style... tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2004
At first I didn?t think I could finish the whole six pack as I found the doppelbock to be a hard beer to drink, I got used to it over time. Pretty harsh and heavy to drink at first for an amatuer. Not the best example of the style.

Pours a deep orange with a small white head. Aroma of caramel and candied apples, very bready as well. Body is super malty and sweet, mostly caramel, typical doppelbock. Alcohol is not too noticeable. Finishes sweet. Not too shabby. billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - OCT 5, 2004
bottle 12 oz. Semi clear copper w small tan head that fell quick. Aroma is quite malty w alcohol and min hops. Flavor is rather sweet, creamy lt/med roasted malt that has a somewhat caramel candy flavor, also a bit like malted milk balls without the chocolate. Light hop flavor but hop bitterness is pronounced and a redeeming factor. Alcohol is noticible but masked fairly well. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness. Gachupines (1252) - USA - NOV 30, 2004
Dark brownish red with fairly thick head. Flavor is dominated by malts. Pretty easy to drink, above average for the style. lamas (1636) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle. Bottled on: 08/19/04. Bright amber pour with smallish sandy head that leaves some lacing. Very fizzy. Chocolate, caramel and malts present in the nose along with some bananas and berries. Plenty of sweet malts and fruity flavors including banana. Some caramel present too. Pretty smooth going down. Only a slight presence of warming alcohol. bdmast (10) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Faint sweet aroma. Cream colored head dissapated quicky. Heavy body. Not bad, alcohol is well hidden.
