This is called the American version of the beer. I've never tried the German version, but I can't imagine it being much better than this one. It pours a typical doppelbock color (resembles a rootbeer), with a pure white head that lingered throughout the glass. The taste was malty and delicious, with very little aftertaste. The high alcohol content isn't noticable: I thought that this was a 6.5-7% alcohol beer, and was very surprised to discover that this had 9%. I've never had a beer this powerful that was this drinkable. I fully recommend this beer.

Poured two inches of cream colored head and a dark ruby body. Decent head retention: head gradually fades to a thin ribbon and leaves sparse sudsy lacing. Smell is of roasty malt and heavy on the dark fruit - some figs, some raisins. Alcohol present. Taste follows the nose. Little bit of booze comes through. Medium-bodied with light carbonation and slightly bitter-sweet. Would maybe have this beer one more time, but no more than that. Not to crazy about tasting those dark fruits in my hocks.
