500ml brown glass bottle from Getranke Oase in Munich:

~8-10cm wide cap of off-white colour and ~10 minute retention. Body is a translucent transparent amber of average vibrance. No yeast or lees are visible within. Clean lager yeast.

Aroma is of the usual doppelbock descriptor "liquid bread." Cleanly attenuating saccharomyces. Aromatic intensity is average.

Taste is of liquid bread, amber malt treacle, caramel, and malt sweetness.

Texture is smooth, wet, overcarbonated, medium to full-bodied, and of high thickness and heft. Heavy and filling.

Overall, it's a mediocre doppelbock that happens to be from a region known for doing far better. Drinkable but not worth a second purchase - especially with Celebrator and Augustiner readily available. I like it, but there are far better doppelbocks out there - especially from Bavaria. Very plain.

A: Copper body. Not exactly lively with strings of bubbles. Smallish off-white head.
S: Grainy malt. Not much going on though.
T: It has a salty, stocky, grainy malt flavour, very similar in character to Fuller's 1845. Less bitter though. It's medium sweet with pleasant caramel. Fruity but nothing analogous springs to mind. Mouthfeel is velvety, if not a little lifeless.
O: Pretty good but gets boring towards the end.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

Makes a decent finger and a half thick light tan head, with a clear and ruby red colored body.

There are sligth hints of cherry, cola, and maybe a little herbal characteristics in the fragrance.

The taste has some notes of chocolate, vanilla, and nutty flavors.

This feels pretty clean for a D/B, and is actually kind of refreshing for a moderately spiked beer.

Purchased at Bacchanalia, a fantastic little offie in Cambridge. Coming in a 500ml brown bottle, BB 09/05/07, served chilled in a pint-size weizen glass.

A: bright copper hue, a creamy beige froth comes thick, tight, with very good retention; moderate carbonation.
S: sweetened plums and semi-sweet lemony notes on top of caramel malts, melted brown-sugar, golden syrup, and caramel-coated nuts… intense and focused, balanced b/w malt sweetness and a healthy dose of sour fruitiness, albeit not terribly complex.
T: quite fruity rather than simply malty upfront… a mouthful of chewy prunes with a touch of roasted Munich malts; followed by more chewy prune-ish fruits, a touch of lemony aroma (as of a Helles), and pleasantly tea-ish bitter mouthfeel left on the wings of the tongue, leaving a lingering nutty aroma of malts in the end.
M&D: softly fizzy and rather light in body, this doppel-bock is delicious, quaffable, balanced b/w malts and fruitiness; definitely worth a try!!

Found at Hightime in Costa Mesa, Turquoise label.

Pours a clear dark brown brew.

Smell is sweet with toasted grain and caramelized malt as the main scents.

Taste is sweet but not excessively so. Large grain flavor that isn’t obliterated by the malt. Alcohol is hidden in the flavor but it warms your chest nicely. A more restrained type of Doppelbock that will appeal to a wider audience.

Mouthfeel is good.

Very good Drinkability, closer to a regular German Lager than most Doppelbocks.
