Poured a deep reddish-brown color, nice half inch head that receded to a quarter inch thick creamy foam. Aroma was sweet molasses, toffee and caramel with just a hint of dark stone fruits and some faint chocolate notes. The flavor was pretty close to the aroma, with a very sweet flavor, some prune, plu, caramel and chocolate flavors. The mouthfeel was luxuriously creamy and smooth, like drinking a glass of butter! This was an outstanding beer, but then again, it has been perfected for almost a thousand years, and it shows!

Pours a deep ruby color with a two finger off white head. Aroma is dark fruit, molasses, and bread. Taste is prune, molasses, other dark fruit and a breadiness. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall a nice example of the dopplebock style, not quite in the stratosphere with celebrator but quite good.

Pours a deep brown with beautiful ruby highlights producing 1+ finger of light tan, frothy, rapidly diminishing head that leaves only a small rim of lacing. Aroma is pumpernickel, toffee, brown sugar, banana, milk & dark chocolate, a little dark fruit & the faintest hint of earthy hops. Taste is dark toasted bread, Hershey's chocolate, toffee, baked sweet potato, prune, raisins, figs & roasted nuts with some earthy hop character & a peppery spiciness in the sweet, fruity, toffee & lightly boozy finish. Aftertaste is char, chocolate & candied fruit mixed with a little hop bitterness that is accentuated by the alcohol bitterness, & spice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with light carbonation, lightly chewy, smooth, extremely creamy & silky but with a fine spicy prickle in the latter half of the sip. A damn fine example of the style.

Appearance - Pours a mahogany brown with two fingers of foamy beige head.

Smell - sweet caramel, toasted malts, plum and grape aromas, hint of chocolate.

Taste - Starts off with the sweet caramel then goes into the toasted malts and plum and grape which are most predominate followed by the hint of chocolate.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant sweetness from the caramel.

Overall - A well executed doppelbock. This brew showcases an excellent malt and fruit profile which is spot on for the style.

Heavier than the more delightful (and rarer) Dunkel. This one has a higher alcohol content and a much stronger taste, while maintaining a drinkability and a level of refinement you can expect from high end European breweries.

Poured from a 500 ML bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- this brew has a minimal aroma, no detectable odors
Appearance- a dark coffee black with a thin tan head.
Taste- big flavor of licorice and malt, great flavor
Palate- a full bodied beer that is very satisfying and is lightly carbonated
Overall- an excellent doppelbock, I would look for this again to drink.

The aroma is pleasantly expressive with sharp molasses and prune (especially at first), sweet brown sugar, rye bread, chocolate, and toffee. The body is very clear and deep brown in color with mahogany highlights and a light khaki head. The flavor includes dark berry, prune, smooth toasted grains, a spicy/herbal twang, and a sweet, rich, grainy finish. The body is somewhat light, moderately carbonated, and very crisp.

Strong but not overwhelming, smooth, delicious, and very drinkable. Complex and well structured. A bit light and crisp but not detrimentally so.

Poured into a dimpled mug.

Look: The color of cola, or maybe cold coffee sits the body under a cream colored head. Little lacing, if any, but a nice creamy film lies on top of the body after the head recedes.

Aroma: Chocolate, toasted grains, toffee, caramel.

Taste: Much like the aroma, loads of toffee, chocolate, and roasted grains come out. A really warm, toasty flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light in body, smooth.

Overall: Very, very delicious, without any skunked or musty European import taste.
