4.65/5  rDev +18.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

11.2oz bottle (best by 1/2011) poured into a shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy orange-red (not quite coppery) beer with a off-white thin foam across the top. Poured 1/8" thick foam but this died down fast. Some lacing, but this would drift back down the walls of the glass.

Smell: A rich buttery toffee is what I get, and all I get mostly. There are few mild fruit-like notes in there, but it's mostly caramel malt that comes across as buttery toffee for me. For a single note beer it's quite appealing.

Taste: Oh wow - it really is a rich buttery toffee in flavor too. While on the sweet side, it is not cloying and really damn tasty. Dangerously smooth and appealing - an outstanding beer in that single taste. There are some tiny hints of alcoholic notes (dark fruits) at the end, but they are fleeting.

Mouthfeel: Some carbonation on the tongue, but otherwise thick and somewhere between very smooth and slightly sticky. I go back and forth on this one. Either way it goes nicely with the richness of the beer flavor.

Drinkability: This one went really fast, and at this high of an ABV, is really dangerous with how smooth it is. While I wish I had the 500mL bottle, 12oz is enough for one sitting. Still, I would not mind having another one. Went well with a meal (burger and fries) but I could have this one alone to sip and savor....although its so tasty it's hard to sip and savor, I really want to keep drinking more. An outstanding beer in flavor and drinkability. I will definitely pick this up again.

3.8/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Nice amber brown color. Spotty lacing. Mild head.

S: Light chocolate notes. Moderate yeast aroma.

T: Choclate roasted malt. Nice medium body. Moderate yeast, Belgian yeast maybe? Very pleasant all around. Hides the 8% abv.

M: Medium body. Sweet, chocolatey and roasty.

O: I really enjoyed this dopplebock. Having tried a few here in Germany, I prefer it on top off all the heils, pils and export beers (lager) I have been drinking.
