Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a modest, off-white head.
Aroma: Bready malt, dry dead leaves.
Taste: Bready and caramel malts, fruitiness. Ends with typical bitterness from the style.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, almost thick.
Overall: Not a bad "double bock." I like it a little more complex than this, but definitely drinkable. Beaver (1799) - 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.otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
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.
Appearance: mahogany with ruby and browns bordered by a bubbly collar. Swirls with khaki head, tannish, and lace.

Nose: woody, dry, dead leaves. Old leather and a touch stale. Musty. Mild overall but the pervasive stale old mustiness is an attribute, not a detriment.
Palate: thin with brown sugared dates and a distracting overwhelming saccharine sweetness which wasn’t apparent anywhere in the nose. Candied sugars than candied fruitcake. Thin and weak.
Final Thoughts: while the nose was different, twas intriguingly so. Too bad the palate was nowhere intriguing or appetizing. Meh.
Pours copper, with an off white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, and some fruit. Flavor is caramel, malt, fruit, and some nuts as well. Some bitterness in the finish. Thanks to footbalm for this bottle. degbert (1773) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2015 Bottle. Pous a golden brown with a lite head. A lot of caramel and toffee on the nose; those notes carry through on the palate with a definite cinnamon brown sugar overtone. Holds its alcohol well. It ain’t Ayinger, but it’s decent.

Draft. Dark brown and clear. No head. Nose is sweet and malty. Taste is the same with a ton of sticky sweetness. Glad I got a sampler. JHeath99 (1678) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Can shared by snoworsummer and sonnycheeba. Pours a dark brown with a thin spotty layer of light tan head. Taste and aroma of malts and caramel. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Dark Amber pour with white head, dried fruits and brown sugar aroma, and the taste is malty with some toastiness, it’s a good one. Plus, it has an awesome name. User134089 (1644) - - MAY 12, 2015

Misc.: Enjoy by Aug. 23, 2015
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)

Lovely appearance, dark but a bright clear copper red tone. Sweet buttery grainy caramel malts hit you in aroma with a tangy almost sour like kind of citrus. Bit of spice and herbal. Cream brule. Taste is malty citrus, herbal and spice with a tangy finish with citrus. The middle is smooth and rich with carmelly malts, sweet raison,toffee rich buttery and some mild roast character. Sticky sweetness stays in your mouth. I suppose this might be better than the average bock, but still pretty shure this style is not my thing. As I always remind myself everytime I get one once in a blue moon.
