Ratman197 (14514) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2006
500 ml bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a diminishing amber head. Aromas of prunes, dark malt, a bit of molasses and a hint of honey. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark bread, a hint of dark fruit and honey with a smooth dry finish. The nose is much better than the flavor which is pretty one dimensional.

thewolf (12486) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
A very beautiful mahogany colour with good brownish head that stays for a while. Aroma contains berries, nuts and chocolate. Flavours veer more towards a sweet caramelly feel with some citric notes and a limited hoppyness.

Wow another winner. Chocolate,carmel, malt. Good head that dissapates quickly. Great aftertaste with long lasting flavor. Great with a thick steak and scalloped potatoes. Not a beer I would drink every day. Only because I drink beers like this with special meals.

DocLock (10570) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Thanks to Hogtown Harry for this gem. The pour was hazy deep brownish ruby with a 2-finger khaki head. The aroma was malty, with cacao, some Wheaties, brown sugar, and almonds. Flavors were very malty, cereally, with a lot of grape nuttyness, almonds, some brown sugar, and cacao. Good complexity and balance.

Shared this bottle with Duane. Thanks to Rich as well! Just read what Duane said, as my experience with this beer was the same. It smelled amazing, but the taste didnt quite match up to the great aroma. Overall though, a very good beer!

16.9 oz. bottle courtesy of RLB, thanks Rich you helped knock another one off of my want list.<!-- br --> great looking pour to this one. dark brown with a ruby edge and a decent size khaki head. aroma was outstanding of sweet caramel, plums, raisin, hints of dark chocolate and coffee, my anticipation is high. medium to almost full bodied the flavors were more of the sweet caramel, plums, etc., and while good there was just a little strange bitterness that did not match the aroma profile. still a very good doppel and one I hope to have again.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Bottle: Pellucid tawny cherry brown color, thin head and light lacing. Nose of sweet malty goodness, fig, plum, fruit. The flavor is chewy, sweet, balanced, very nice doppel. On the likes of Celebrator but with a denser body and less sweetness. Tangy alcohol, good. Jesus, almost a millenium to perfect and its still not that great. Well, it is awesome, but not perfect or world class.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 11, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 (Bottle BB 09/10/07) Roasted malty, caramel and chocolate aroma. Dark brown red colour and small, light brownish head with a hint of lacing. Roasted malty, dark bread-like, coffee, chocolate and port winous flavour. Lively carbonated, warming (hint of alcoholic), medium to full-bodied and sticky palate. A splendid beer! 05/08/07 (original rating was 8/5/9/5/17)
