Pours a clear ruby amber hue with small brown head. This beer looks great. Aroma was caramel and roasted nuts. Taste was sweet with some coffeeish bitters on the finish. The mouthfeel was thicker then expected.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2011 Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford, CT. This is a really nice blended Doppelbock with a smooth, creamy finish with notes of wood, cherry and leather. The ABV is masked well, as the body is medium. chandler0201 (650) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Amber pour with a medium head. Aroma of malts, some candied fruit. Flavor was sweet, with a weird sort of aftertaste, kind of sugary. AirForceHops (8179) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 26, 2011
12 oz bottle. Poured into a mug. A somewhat clear amber in color. Medium carbonation. Sweet malt in the nose, lots of malt in the taste. A very light hop in the finish. Body is much thinner then the German varieties. A good beer by a American brewery however, not as superior as the true German brews of the style. You do not taste the alcohol as it states that it is 7.9% ABV. LiteWait (266) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 26, 2011

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark oak color with a nice thick off white head. Aroma has molasses, some caramel, and tons of malts. Flavors are also mostly malt: sweet with hints of molasses and some spice. Full bodied and a very tasty brew. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear garnet brown glowing with a smaller fine off-white head, looks great. Aroma is nicely rich munich and vienna malt, bit of oxidation in there, some fading hops, very nice. Flavor follows, really really nice, but again maybe a bit too hoppy, fantastic rich German malt flavor, love the richness, like cinnamon, some crystal flavor, really lacks a bit of mouthfeel, maybe too clean? Medium bodied, smooth glassy feel, lighter carbonation, maybe could use a bit of grittiness, but really easy drinking, nails that 8%, I’m not complaining it’s very good. coolfunnj (374) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2011

This beer pours a rich deep red with khaki colored thick head. There is a sweet toffee and mild chocolate aroma under the head that blends nicely. This beer is mild in sweetness and bitterness which makes it very mellow and enjoyable. A nice warmth from the alcohol comes through at the end with a silky smooth mouthfeel. This beer is a real joy to drink. Dogbrick (14389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Sample at Duke’s Alehouse & Kitchen in Crystal Lake, IL. The beer is a reddish-brown color with a medium thin tan head that dissipates slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and toffee plus some fruit. Medium body with flavors of malt, dark fruit and a touch of hops. The finish is sweet with a lingering dark fruity aftertaste. Above average overall.
