Old vintage bottle at Kulminator. Dark brown colour, failing to form a real head; caramelly aroma with bit vinous character, alcohol apparent, bit toasty as well; taste likewise, smooth caramel maltiness, slight roasted bitterness, warming alcohol. Suffered from old age as it was clearly oxidized and had lost most of its body; I’d prefer a young Bock over this.

Got an old bottle of this. Looks really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, no head. Alcoholic-dry aroma. Starts not as strong as exspected, modest dry, some woody notes. Then stronger and stronger, alcoholic-burning with soapy notes, tastes like 13-14% ABV... Finish intense woody-alcoholic, very warming. Interesting!

33 cL bottle. Pours almost clear and golden deep amber with a fully gone head. Roasted and wineous aroma. Flavour is smooth malty with a distinct malty base. Smooth malty finish. Nice and light sweet too. Lovely.

No#9. (1989). Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is same with fruits kickin in however a bit overpowering because of the sweetness. Too old i think a bit syrupy.

Dorqui (2177) - Brescia, ITALY - SEP 23, 2005
On tap. Creamy and compact foam, optimal persistence. Hazy yellow color, enough firm and slightly little bubbly. Alcoholic and strongly bitter scent. Little harmonious and unbalanced. Unpleasant taste, overbearing bitter and with light malty and medicinal rumors. Much alcoholic and spiced, light flowery rumors in the end.

TheBeerGod (5997) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Bottled. Vintage 1989. Body is garnet in color with speckles of sediment floating within it and the frothy cream colored head. Nose is a bit grainy while retaining the rich malt aromas and lighter caramel notes it had when fresh. Some hints of watery cocoa as well. Taste is light caramel with milder maltiness and stronger grains. Some intermittent oxidization. This is a bit past it’s prime. Body is light but still rather creamy. Finishes with malt, and light caramel-like sweetened notes. Good, but as mentioned, a little too far past it’s prime.

Strange yeasty aroma. Relatively light in body for a doppel and light in colour as well. Light nutty, buttery flavour. Not a good example of the style.

Reddish brown color,with thin fast fading head. Alcohol nose. The harsh alcohol heat overpowers everything else

Terrible, disgustig, awful. Has the same taste both ways. Almost couldn’t finish it. EKU Terminator would be a better name...
