Pours a very dark brown color that will still allow some light through with a tan head. Smells of dough, caramel, and dark fruit. Rich malty presence tastes of brown sugar, caramel, and dough. Quite yummy even on a hot day. Capa (3393) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Dar brown in color with a nice head. Caramel malt dominates both he aroma and flavor. Roasted malts, dough, and a little nutty. Smooth body. A bit too sweet but still a very good beer. tomjr9 (11) - Lauderdale, Kentucky, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Pours very dark brownish read with a tan head. Smells malty and rich. Rich flavor with lots of malt and a bit bitter. Not as sweet as many of this style of beer that I have had. Feels very silky in the mouth. yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Pours deep mahogany, almost red, with light tan head.
Nose is tough to discern in my wide mouthed German stein but is bready, roasty, and rich.
On the palate is a smooth medley of roasty malts, brown bread, some brown sugar and/or caramel too. All of this glides around elegantly with a smooth, medium body. Very sexy beer.
Finish is lightly sweet with some alcohol. Warming.

Bottle Pours a dark brown that lets a fair bit of light through around the edges. There is enough head that I would guess that I’ve only got 8 ounces or so in my pint glass. Aromas are of roasted malt, nuts and damp earth. Flavor, mouthfeel and palate are all very lovely except for a slight bit of cloying sweetness that I detect from time to time... not every sip, but it’s there enough to get a little annoying. Still, very nice drink.

Pint bottle- poured out a beautiful mahogany brown-amber with a dark khaki head. Aroma was malty with a coffee back. Taste was excellent, toasty malt and nuts with a sweet finish. Palate was good for a Doppelbock, very smooth. Would be great with a hearty beef dinner. Liked it a lot. Christian (13768) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2008
Clear amber beer with a small off-white head. Malty aroma with toffee, brown sugar and molasses. Dry but rich malty flavour, tasty and drinkable for the style. dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Pours dark dark brown, very malty aroma, just what you would expect from a doppelbock. Flavor is extremely smooth, nothing overpowering about this at all, and surprisingly easy to drink. This is one of my favorite doppelbocks so far. TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Clear even brown color. Frothy tan head of tiny foam rather than big bubbles. Carbonation is active but hard to spot in the deep brown color. Sweet aroma thats predominately malt and caramel with an apple tinge to boot. Its a sweet flavored brew thanks to the double malt. The taste is fruity as well with the apple. Its well flavored to handle the high gravity and high alcohol content. Palate is remarkably light and quenching for this heavy style. A great job. This company might have a future (j/k). ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Poured into a 500ml glass stein, which shows off it’s thick, light-brown head beautifully. Lacing is wet, sparse as the head dissipates. Color is deep mohogany, a dark-red/deep brown color. Absolutely a beautiful beer. Aroma reminds me of a real German beer - a sweet malt, slight yeast. First thing I noticed about the taste was the cold, all-encomassing crispness, then a sweet bitterness that focuses on the center of the tongue and cheeks. Second sip tastes a bit more bitter, but leaves no pronounced aftertaste. The more I drink the more I taste the grain. A very decent doppelbock. I’d love to see this available at the local pub!!!
