The date says the 130th day of 06.

The head pours out alright, but then leaves behind a 1/8 inch head covering the beer on top, so it's not that bad. The color is a deep brown, I can still see through it fine, but it's very brown with carbonation bubbling up all over. The smell is bready, and I can't smell much of anything else. The taste is off a bit, the sweetness has been morphed into a sour/sick flavor. The mouthfeel was ok, a little too carbonated, but ok. Overall I would have to take my time and find out a date of the next one of these I find.

Poured a fairly dark brown-amber color with a massive rocky tan head. The head is super fluffy and after a few minutes the spotchy lacing is revealed. Aroma is super sweet and malty with a hint of molasses. Hint of metallic corn???? Flavor is overly metallic and way too malty and sweet. Hints of caramel and chocolate come though in the taste. Mouthfeel is creamy but flat. I have heard lots of good things about this with descriptions such as "luxurious and rich".

This bottle was far from it. I will have to try again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

from a 500 ml bottle. Served at 46-52 F per the bottle

App: A solid ruby color with a tan head. I always seem to prefer doppelbocks with a darker coloration.

Smell: Great notes of minerals and herbs. Roasted aromas from the malt. Slight notes of copper that is always great in german beers. Ends with tart, salted caramel and touch of grassy hops.

Taste: Flat start. Slight caramel and roasted malt in the beginning. Middle is cardboard. Ends with a cloying sweetness and papery faltness. Tastes like unfermented candy syrup.

Mouthfeel: Strangely thin for a doppelbock. That makes it more drinkable, but it feels like a cola.

Overall: I expected better from this brewery, but I am now remembering why I haven't had this beer in years. I will give it another try and rating in the future. I will be sure to try it on draft and on bottle from another supplier

Pours a dark ruby brown with a thin yet persistent tan head. Sheets of lace. Smell is malty and fruity, light alcohol aroma.

Big malt in the mouth. Caramel and peppery spice. Lots of alcohol in the flavor and some hops in the finish. Mouth is lightly sticky and the malty alcohol taste lingers. Not too drinkable and not too smooth. Not a great beer quite frankly.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

A: Pours a ruby/burgandy color with a big tan head. Moderate lacing.

S: Big smell of sweet malt and caramel.

T: Sweet and malty with noticable alcohol flavors.

M: No noticable carbonation with a very flat texture. Medium body with a clean finish.

D: I've been looking foward to trying this ever since trying Weihenstephaner's weissbiers. Big disapointment. Being a textural person, the mouthfeel was a huge turn-off, and the rest of the beer's traits were less than impressive as well. I won't be buying this one again.

16.9 oz bottle poured into a pilsner.

clear amber brown with half an inch of tan head. falls evenly leaving little lacing

malty sweet aroma. just a hint of coffee and molasses.

sweet caramel malts in the taste as well, but it's got an oddly empty aftertaste. much weaker flavor than i'd expect from a doppelbock. very light carbonation and a medium-light mouthfeel.
