chocolate.Good balance.Smooth,nice finish,medium body.Very good. Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Pours a nice deep reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma is malty with a bunch of caramel malt coming through. Taste is very smooth and malty, with of course lots of caramel flavor. Very good, but not as good as Celebrator or optimator. Still a great doppelbock. Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 31, 2007
This proves to me that Doppelbocks are one of the most enjoyable styles in beer IMO. Great brown color with a light brown head. Sweet but dry, easy to drink yet full bodied. Slight caramel sweetness and maybe dried fruit. Very enjoyable, would like to hav again if i remember to get around to it. yespr (44793) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours beautiful dark amber, visible, with a dense off-white head. Dried fruity and dark roasted malt aroma. Flavour is smooth chocolate flavoured malty with a slight note of dried fruit and a mild woody note. The barley notes keep lingering into the far finish and provide some warmth with the alcohol. Mild bitterness in the far finish. BEERGUY007 (206) - Scotia, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Nice beer. I love doppelbocks too though. If you love doppelbocks, then find this one, or ask me, I can get it for you. I would be happy to trade. Reminds me of coffee. Very nice feel on the palate, very pleasant. Little carbonation and a dark color like it should. Nice.

Beer pours darker than night, with a nice head. Do you like coffee? If you do, take your time in the rich aroma of this beer. Sweet and malty, alcohol very well hidden. Mouthfeel is pleasant with good carbonation. This is a good beer to relax to, but one is enough in a night for me. JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Pours a dark copper brown with a sparse off-white head. Sweet caramel and slight nutty aroma, but mostly sweetness. Nice taste - sweet malty flavor with mild spice. The sweetness never gets to be overboard and the finish actually ends up bring a little dry. A nice dopplebock, still getting a feel for the variety available within the style. illkarate (115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2007
500 ml, lot 4187. Great pour, nice darker tan head. Dark brown with rubyish tint in the glass. Lots of malt up front, hints of chocolate, toffee, molasses, raisins, wood - maybe oak? Very mellow, almost non-existent carbonation. Good mouthfeel, nice finish. Hides the alcohol (7.4%) extremely well. Good beer. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2007
Chestnut brown colour. Rich malt aroma - toffee, some light earth and brown sugar. Soft body. Pleasant molassesy note. Genteel, understated elegance. Becker (14) - Bayern, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2007
This one was nice, but not what I had hoped for. A very nice dark coloration, but the aroma is lacking. Flavor is nice and full, but lacking in real character. Overall, good, but not great.
