Maxbier (890) - Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Opaque dark brown with thin tan head. Aroma of hay, toffee, sherry and anise. Flavor is toffee, caramel, some hints of cocoa, medium carbonation (more than I had expected based on other’s reviews). Sticky sweet boozy finish.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
A dark, mahogany red-brown coloured beer with a very weak yellow-white coloured head. A strong, dark malt aroma, dark caramel, bready, raisiny and grapey. Medium mouthfeel with very little fizz. A smooth, bittersweet dark malt taste, burnt caramel, bready, candied fruit and raisins, plus some spice. The finish is bittersweet and lengthy.

bnokk (465) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle, imported to USA. APPEARANCE - dark amber color like you?d expect from a doppleock. Not much head to speak of. NOSE - somewhat weak. Not too much to it. I think it fits the style, but very little to get excited about scent wise. FLAVOR ? good flavot ? reminds me of siting in Augistiner brewery on the eve of Oktberfest a couple yeas ago. It?s a solid drinker.

MMR (682) - NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2015
The bottle says it is a Starkbier (Strong beer) but it is aroma wise very much a typical Doppelbock. Good and malty aroma.

Clean reddish color with a nice off-white head that keeps a nice lacing until he end. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit, hints of plum and slightly alcohol. Flavor follow the aroma but not alcohol notes, hints of burned sugar, caramel and hops. Low carbonation and medium to full body with a sweet roasted finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone 4S

rjplumer (1003) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Deep dark ruby body with a thin off white head. Lightly carbonated. Sweet malt dark fruity aroma. Dark fruity taste with some light bitterness. Finishes wet but clean. Looks lightly carbonated but comes alive on your tongue. Feels potent at first but settles.

chinchill (4271) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2015
330 ml undated bottle served in a pilsner glass. Pours clear and with plenty of visible carbonation, but less than a 1 finger head despite a fairly vigorous pour. The tan head was reasonably durable. S: Roasted grains; hints of roasted nuts, toffee and dark dried fruits. T: Also malty with hints of raisins, dates, dried plums and roasted nuts. Lightly sweet overall but with some bitterness. M: Medium+ body. Medium-light carbonation. Just a touch syrupy. O: Very good.
