Bottle. Amber/red with large beige head. Aroma of fruity esters (grape, apple) and malt. Medium body, medium malt sweetness, some mineral notes, caramel, and a malty finish. stevoj (5046) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Can from HomeBrewStuff. Solid, complete doppelbock, not outstanding, but a great example of the style. Mostly clear brown, small airy head. Nice malty sweetness, drying out towards the end, but still maintaining some pleasant swett taste. Tasty stuff. Kevin (2199) - Montana, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle. Brown with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel and bread. Sweet flavor with cereal flavor with a light nut in the finish. Light berry hints throughout. A nice sipper that is a bit too sweet. Beaver (1802) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours light ruby brown with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.rjplumer (1098) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 19, 2015
The aroma is toasted bready malts with a little fruit.
The flavor is sweet toasted chocolate and caramel nutty malts with some fruit and a little smokiness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a nice doppelbock. A bit too sweet for me.
Caramel nut aroma with roasted malt. Brownish red body with a minimal head. Smooth roasted malt taste with clean caramel malt base. Warming on the palate. Decent finish that is clean, sweet with a hint of nut. Well done for this style.

bottle. Poured deep reddish-brown with a thinning tan head. Aroma is slightly burnt with an alcohol note. Medium body, average carbonation, a bit of a syrupy mouthfeel. Taste of roasted malt, sweet caramel with vanilla notes, and a touch of warming alcohol at the end. monk191 (1980) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2015
A quite nice double bock. Pours a deep Amber with a tan head. Smells of malt and vanilla. Taste is sweet, with a bit of booze, vanilla and a sweet marshmallow finish. Had in the bottle at Zion Pizza and Noodle. RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a Stem glass at 40°. Color is a dark clear amber with mellow carbonation and a thin tight head. Aroma is sweet with scents of malt and fruit. It has a medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is sweet with candy sugar and dark fruit then a note of hop spice and bitterness. After taste is a continuation of the sweet with just enough bitterness to leave it with a slightly dry feel. Overall it’s a good Doppelbock, easy enough to drink and not too sweet.

Poured a reddish, brown, amber semi-clear color with four fingers of khaki tan, frothy head that immediately started dissipating. Minimal wet lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.75)
Smelled booziness right up front, followed by caramel, plum, roasty malts, honey nuts, toffee and dark red apple. (Smell - 3.88)
Taste was slightly better than the nose, coming in with rich, creamy, roasty malts, caramel, roasty nuts, plum and very light chocolate. The 8 percent ABV is hidden. (Taste - 4.25)
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Smooth finish. (Feel - 4.25)
This beer really grew on me. Maybe I just enjoy the style, but I was really digging it. Wish I had more than one. (Overall - 4.13)
