Soft caramel maroon color with lightly caramelized cream cover. Caramel aroma with some cat litter graininess and the pleasant unfurling of melanoidins. The abdomen is immediately warmed after the first sip. Viscous mouthfeel and somewhat goeyness on the lips. A bit of syrupyness roughness, but pretty enjoyable. The alcohol strength is palpable, but well enough contained. A solid winter warmer of a doppelbock. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, dark copper and red, with a small to medium-sized creamy tan head. Aromas of sweet caramel and roasty malt. The flavor is sweet, with notes of red berry and some mild grassy bitterness. Pretty one-dimensional; below average.  murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear brown with a thin beige head. Strong aroma with lots of caramel, a bit of grainy malt, and some fruit and cherry. Taste is malty and fairly sweet, with more caramel and fruit. Alcohol is somewhat noticeable on the finish. Very flavorful, but a bit on the sweet side. rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - APR 30, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a mug. The label has no freshness date or abv%.
Appearance: Looking into the glass I am presented with a deep garnet red brew with good clarity and a tall off white to light tan head. This head slowly fades out leaving some spotty lacing at the top of the glass.
Smell: There is a big rich malty character coming out of the glass. In it I get candy sweet notes like a grape sucker or grape soda. This is backed up with a big bready sweet maltiness
Taste/Palate: The big malty sweetness from the aroma hits the tongue with candy like grape notes inside of a somewhat modest medium to full bodied bready sweetness. In the back ground there are some very subdued hop notes that offer a touch of herbal leafy spice with almost no bitterness. The palate is very smooth and lightly carbonated. Its sweetness sticks on the palate a bit but not in a heavy or to cloying a way.
Notes: It’s not the most complex Doppelbock but there is something about its basic character that I like and find enjoyable to drink. drfabulous (7813) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - FEB 14, 2011
12 ounce thanks to murphym45. Caramel and sweet. Slightly thin body. Little bit of cherry in the finish.

Draft. Smells of chocolate, nuts and honey. Color is a brownish hue witj no head. Tyasyte is breadyu with carmel, malts and a touch of hops to balance it out. Smooth and abv is hidden well. Perfect for a cold night yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Wagner Valley Sled Dog Doppelbock is a very clear, ruby lager that’s topped with a khaki ring that leaves decent lacing. It smells sweet, melanoidal and grainy. It’s full bodied and syrupy with a dry, chewy finish. It tastes slightly sweet and bready. Alcohol is present in the finish. It has a slightly medicinal bitterness. It’s a solid doppelbock. bhensonb (15088) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle from Half Time. Pours a reddish dark amber with a foamy off-white/beige head. Aromas of sweet malt and chocolate. Full bodied with coarsely foamy carbonation. Flavor is toffee/lightly treacle/hint of chocolate. Not a trace of heat. Finish is sweet, but not sickenly so. Good beer for winter evenings. ganache (5852) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle. Light Munich and wood in the nose. Surprisingly fruitiness. Beautiful dark copper color that still retains some translucence. Tan head. Taste is fairly sweet with only a low undercurrent of bitterness. Some faint dark roast and coffee, but more about the rich malts, has some chocolate and fruitiness. Medium body is a little flat but with a sort of smoky dryness, and the aftertaste is elegant and smooth. Alcohol very well-hidden, I would have guessed maybe 5%. On the gentler side of Doppelböcke, but extremely pleasant and enjoyable. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany without much visible carbonation/head on it. Very impressed - very malty, some caramel and maybe even a little apple/fruitiness in it. Good texture and mouthfeel.
