Had at The Soup Cellar in Leavenworth, WA, flip top bottle. Explosive pour. Ruby brown with giant bubbly tan head. Strong smells of fruity malt and alcohol. Quite a bit of malt sweetness and rather creamy. Very warming, definately a big beer. Towards the end it was a bit rich. I loved it but don't think I could drink two.

Nice bottle. Poured a clear dark amber red, with two fingers of tan creamy head. Sticks around nicely and leaves some lacing.
Smell is of caramel, dark fruit and malt.
The tast is nicely starting out with dark fruits, being met with a good portion of malt and caramel flavors, yet balanced in the end by mild hops.
Very nice medium bodied Bockbeer, nothing outstanding , but very nice and drinkable.

Review from 9/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip.Pours a dark red-orange amber. Nice tan head with slight lacing. Looks nice. Sweet malt aroma. Sweet malts, dark fruit, hint of dark malt and light caramel. Taste fades quickly. Finishes light sweet malt with a slight astringency. A good standard doppelbock with no outstanding qualities. I'd like a bit more assertiveness. Nice bottle.

Deep amber with goo clarity. Massive and sticky off white head with a faint yellow tint. Raisin whole wheat bread on the nose along with figs and dark fruits. A rich nuttiness in the background with an overall earthiness. Some herbs and spice.
On the lighter side of being medium bodied. Surprisingly crisp and clean. Grainy bread like sweetness up front rides into a rich nuttiness that stays consistent to the finish followed by the perfect amount of dark fruit. Finish is slightly spiced and balanced by a moderate alcohol presence that warms the throat. Sweet but not cloying and is layered extremely well. The flavors get even deeper and more complex if you really want to get into them.
An extremely drinkable and well done doppelbock. So incredibly smooth with great complimentary flavors. Not one of those overbearing dark fruit bombs that some heavier malt beers can be.
Incredible subtlety, flavor, and balance.

Pours clear dark auburn with lots of carbonation clinging to the pilsner glass, while a dark beige head rises half an inch before quickly fading, leaving a trace of lace.
Sweet malt with notes of brandy. The background contains raisins, dates, and possibly some cherry.
Fruity and earthy with overripe cantaloupe. This one is very sweet with plums and no significant finish.
A medium body with lively carbonation and a touch of alcohol. The texture is velvety and there is a sticky, residual left on the lips.
Sit and sip while enjoying a rib-eye. This one takes me back to crisp Thanksgiving days on my Grandfather’s porch -- he with a cigar and me with a healthy piece of pumpkin pie.
