Deep amber color, sorta brown, translucent when held up to the light. Not much head to speak of, just a white ring around the cap. Smells like caramel and honey, with just the faintest touch of smoke. Not a very strong nose, but pleasant and sweet. Bready as well. Taste is very sweet, honey on wheat bread, with just a hint of smokey caramel. Surprisingly thick body, with a little bit of lively carbonation. Think springtime syrup!

Pretty impressed with this beer. Not a top ten, but very interesting and enjoyable. (518 characters)

Thanks to fratto for sharing this bottle at bu11zeye's 10,000th tasting.

The beer pours a brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a lot of cocoa and hazelnuts, with some toffee and caramel malt also thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of toffee and caramel malt, with some nice cocoa and dry chocolate notes. There is also a little bit of brown sugar and a little bit of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. (443 characters)

A Friday night and a bomber of malty beer? Yes please. Purchased at H E B it has a nice dark brown color with coffee head that quick falls. The smell is thick malt with hints of smoke. The taste is rich creamy syrupy goodness. Almost no hop flavor but slight bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is spot on. Overall great beer (322 characters)

Amber in color with a small khaki colored head. Nose is the fairly standard sweet malt mixed with toast and cola. A bit of yeast, dark fruit, and a very mild roastiness. Nothing really extraordinary. Good flavor, but not amazing. Bread, toasted malt, and a hint of cola and dark fruit. There is some mild roast and yeast notes. Just an okay doppelbock. (352 characters)

Pours a clear, brown color. 1/4 inch head of a tan color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight yeast, slight caramel malt, alcohol, slight biscuit, hint of hop, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of a Doppelbock. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, hint of coffee, sweet malt, slight yeast, hint of caramel malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of hops. Overall, weak appearance, but good aroma, feel, blend, body, and complexity. (511 characters)
