look: 5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Initial whiff was a combination of traditional bock malt and something that reminded me of a whiff from a milk carton that you are wondering if it has expired (and thankfully it hasn't!). Pours a dark brown with a slightly foamier head than typical bocks. Tastes indicate good munich malts and fairly dry. Excellent lacing. Mild carbonation (typical). I could drink this on an occasional basis. But its not very cheap. A decent bock but my preference is a little sweeter.

500ml bottle. No discernible date. Appearance: Deep brown with ruby red tint and a thick khaki head that lingers. Aroma: Raisin, cherry, fig, toasted bread, and a touch of alcohol. Taste: Rich malt sweetness, toasted bread prominent, with a strong dark fruit flavor reminiscent of plum and dark cherry. Moderate bitterness enough to balance the rich malt. Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy body with some creaminess for the style, moderate carbonation, and a hint of alcohol on the swallow. Finish: Toasted bread lingers long after the swallow with a touch of fruit. Overall: On the low end of a Doppelbock intensity scale, closer to a traditional bock in that respect. However, the rich dark fruit aroma in flavor more in line with Doppelbock. Either way, an outstanding beer. Complex aroma and flavor profile, balancing the toasted bread Munich malt character with well developed fruitiness of plums, cherries, and raisins.

Beautiful, nearly opaque with mahogany/crimson ribbons that shine through. Light white head that quickly settles to persistent skiff.

Light lager aroma with notes of plum and malt.

Smooth balanced taste with low hops, sweet malt, stonefruit, plum and raisin.

Well carbonated with velvety mouthfeel.

Excellent beer ... a go to for this style. Balanced, smooth and delicious.

Clear mahogany colour. Malts, toffee, and slightly nutty aroma. A little spicy as well. Medium to heavy-bodied, malty and sweet antrunk but phases to a pleasant slighty bitter hop and nutty aftertaste. Crisper towards the end.

Served cold from 500ml bottle into straight pilsner mug.

L) Deep chestnut brown with a reddish tinge, opaque and 2cm off-white dense head, fades quickly to 1cm. Wasn't expecting the dark colour, this is my first dunkel doppelbock.

S) Rich, deep fruity malt odour, reminiscent of some strong English ales. High ABV is evident too.

T) Very dense dark malt flavour, hints of burnt malt and of hop bitterness. The burnt flavour builds after the drink.

F) Thick mouthfeel for a lager, although very fizzy. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Lots there.

O) Wow, what a bier! Strongly recommended to anyone.

Dark, deep, reddish-brown in color with a fantastic, thick and tan head. The aroma is moderately malty, with a clean, lager-aroma as well. Full in malt flavor. Earthy and slightly nutty, with a rich malt backbone. Excellent!

The beer pours a nice bubbly and foamy head that dissipates quickly but leaves a bit of tan and light brown lacing behind. The beer itself is a nice opaque dark brown color that just screams "heavy drinking, buddy."

The smell and taste are very interesting for a dopplebock. The beer has the expected sweet caramel malt notes with bits of toffee and maybe a light bread character but seem to also have a slight roasted quality to it as well. The contrast between the two notes definitely provide for an interesting experience and is what makes this beer worthwhile. The beer also has a slight bitter hop note.

The feel is what you would expect from a good dopplebock; smooth and heavy bodied. Although, the body feels lighter than some other ones that I have had, I won't knock any points down from it because it's definitely heavy.

Overall, a pretty interesting dopplebockj with its roasted character. I definitely recommend this.

Had in a British pub glass. Pours clear dark ruby brown with a thick clingy tan quickly receding 2” foam collar. Big bready and bread crust malt flavors and aromas with kettle sugars suggesting dry caramel and toffee, some malt and hop spice and a mild hop bitterness. Clean and smooth with a little above medium body and a little below medium carbonation. An outstanding Doppelbock.

Dark brown color with a thick beige head with eternal retention.
Nice aroma with notes of licorice, chocolate and plums.
Flavor with notes of chocolate, spices, earthy and spicy hops, cocoa, prunes, lots of licorice and figs. Dry aftertaste with a medium but balance bitterness.
Medium towards full body with appropriate carbonation. Smooth feeling. Alcohol of 6.9% is absent.
Beautiful Doppelbock with a personality of its own. Complex with great depth of flavors.
