Reviewed from notes.

Pours a dark brown caramel color with a light tan head with some pretty good lasting power. The nose is caramel, some dark fruits, a bit of nuts, and brown sugar. Caramel and toffee i the taste and a bit of dry grain. A good dose of dark fruit there as well. Nice medium body with good carbonation. Drinks quite well and is a really nice American version of this style.

I can confirm this is/was available at the restaurant in Lyons and at the Falling Rock the weekend of 7/10/09.

Arrives a pretty deep brown color with just the right amount of head.
Like most US doppelbocks, this one is heading down the path of Salvator. Rich and malty with overtones of dark bread, caramel, toffee, nuts, dark rum, and hints of molasses. It does have a fair amount of chocolate flavor that many seem to be missing, but a lot of the dried fruit flavors present in my favorite German examples really aren't there. That's partially a preference thing, though. Hops are really only there to keep things from being too sweet, and they're doing their job.
Not too strong, but still a little bit boozy. The dark rum flavors and slight burn are a little punchy.
Still, not too bad. If you like Salvator or other American doppels, this is a pretty good one. If the alcohol was kept a little more under control, this has the potential to be pretty great. I know OB experiments a little with offerings like this, so if they go mainstream, this is definitely solid groundwork.

NOTE: My score could be inflated by my love of the style, just an FYI.
