Bottle. The pour was a semi-transparent medium brown with an orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) cream colored frothy head that dissipated quickly to a small amount of residue which produced some poor lacing. The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, caramel, dark fruit (cherries and plums) and also had a mild nuttiness to it. The taste was lightly sweet with a note of toffee early on and then had a nice bold maltiness come on board with notes of caramel, dark fruit and an ever so mild taste of alcohol. The flavor hung around for only a short while with a sweet fruity taste that was left to fade away rather quickly. Mouthfeel was just above light in body and had a kind of watery texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall a brew that was quite easy to drink and had a nice malty fruity flavor...

DocJitsu (1295) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Lager-clear amber-copper with a rich tan head. Rich toffee on light fruit nose. Sticky mouthfeel. The toffee is in the flavor but more muted than what's noted in the aroma. Light fruitiness underneath.

This doppel bock is perfect and in my opinion better than the Andecks doppel bock. The colour is brown-red and the taste is like the "prune" caramel and sweet and not too dry, I mean the taste of alcool is not so strong.

Maxbier (704) - 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 (1465) - 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 (286) - Ohio, 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.

The bottle says it is a Starkbier (Strong beer) but it is aroma wise very much a typical Doppelbock. Good and malty aroma.
