Thanks to Skyview. This rating may be skewed because the beer is slightly frozen and I skimmed the ice out. Rich caramel color with no head. Butterscotch nose. Taste is strong malt with butterscotch and lactose. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours a dark semi-cloudy copper colour with a medium sized tan head. Aroma is rich in dark fruits and bready malts. Noticeable black cherry and maybe milk choclate on the nose. Taste is full, creamy with a semi sweet creamy texture. Cinnamon and almonds.

Ruby red, with beige head. Looks amazing! I get deep maple tastes and some very ripe fruit. Can not get over the looks. Wow! IPAaLLtHEwAY (142) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Beautiful appearance, no head whatsoever but beautiful none the less. The flavor is decent. Complex overall yet not my preference for a dopple bock. Truely well brewed. Shag (3027) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2008
A dark amber to almost brown apperance. The aroma contains some raisin bread with some other dark fruits and chocolate. The flavor contains some plums, cherries, caramel, and maple. Kind of surprised to not see it rated higer. Overall a nice beer.

Dark amber body with a yellowish khaki head. The aroma is really malt with some black tea and peaches. There are also some notes of alcohol. The taste has some sweet bananas and cinnamon. There is also a little bit of leather. A little thick in the mouthfeel. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2008
