elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours a dark amber with a slightly beige head. The head is rather thin, but a fair amount of lacing remains for the duration. Aroma is of caramel malts and toffee, rather sweet and distinctive. Upon first taste I was immediately hit by a strong alcohol flavor akin to bourbon, as well as a buttery toffee taste. As it settled down, the maltiness in the aroma reasserted itself. But here’s where it gets interesting: As the beer continued to warm, I also detected a hint of wood smoke and salt in the flavor--just a touch. This is a doppelbock to be sure, but for me, there was just a hint of a rauchbier profile. In the end, I have to say that the taste really was sweet and salty. Mouthfeel was watery, but the carbonation was stronger and sharper than usual for this style. In sum: A beer that holds it’s own with the best German variants of the style. Definitely worthy a try.

ciocanelu (1002) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 28, 2016
Dark amber color with tan head. Aroma has sweet caramel malt and brown sugar with a hint of dried fruits. Taste starts sweet and malty, some dark fruits in the middle but finishes with a bittersweet burnt sugar note. Quite light body with medium to high effervescence. Aftertaste is on the bitter side, maybe more than a traditional doppelbock, but overall it’s a well made example.

Bottle. Bronze with a small head and clear appearance. Sweet and smooth with some maltiness in the background. Pleasantly powerful and left no lacing. Perhaps a bit too sweet for my taste but still pretty impressive.

American take on a German classic. As expected somewhat hoppier, but smooth and with noticeable esthery fruityness. Nice!
