Dark brown with a hazy texture if you look really closely. Tan head. A bit of chocolate and a bit more coffee and smoke.

Bottle 33cl. Dark red brown colour with a beige head that fades quickly. Aroma has yeast, coffee and chocolate. The taste is lovely. The beer feels thick and welcomes you with a soft, sweetness. Chocolate and coffee at first and then the typical emelisse bitterness kicks in. Later thereís warmness from the alcohol. Very good stuff, bring on the winter!

In short: A monstrously sweet orgy of caramel-coated candied dark fruits in a sumptuous body. Not for me.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed with some age on it, probably over one year of age.
The look: Cloudy dark burgundy body topped by a medium tan head.
In long: Nose is rich as expected, candied fruits and caramel and allÖ itís a big doppelbock, no doubt. Body fuller-than-full but with plenty of soft bubbles that create a surprisingly pleasant sumptuous mouthfeel. Taste is an orgy of caramelized dried dark fruits, no use naming the dark fruit flavors I picked up here, with every sip I picked up a few different ones. Also noted maple syrup or maybe it was some kind of not-so-bitter resinous wooden hops finish that tasted like tree sap. Alcohol is apparent but not bothersome. This truly is a digestive beer. Too sweet for me, that was to be expected from a 11% Doppelbock. Not sure why I bought this, a style I donít really like from a brewery I donít really like, a winning combination that has as much chances at paying off as playing 6-39-26-B-Chicken-& at the loto.

Erasmus_ro (1893) - Alabama, USA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle, 20/04/14. Pours a wooden dark brown, almost black. Small, beige head. Aroma is salty liquorice, roast, smoke, light smoked ham, some liquorice. Smokiness is a bit of a surprise. Taste is semisweet, a lot of salty liquorice, salty liquorice candy. Thereís roast and some smoke as well. Smoked liquorice is a good description. Some dark fruits. Really strong and rich taste. Full with good, medium carbonation. Really chewy and moreish, rich and full.

The kind of beer that makes you wish it was winter all year round. Beautiful, rich colour and palate. No head at all which is a shame but thatís the only negative point I can find. Rich, xmas pudding aroma and plenty of sweetness (leaves you licking your lips). A greedy beer for greedy drinkers. Wonít quench your thirst but who cares. Yummy !

bottle, xmas chez baerwaldt 2012. rich shade of amber with a minimal head; loads of caramel in the aroma, some vanilla syrup; sticky and sweet, toffeed, hint of prunes, manages to remain quite drinkable in spite of the high alcohol

Moolesen (320) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle 33cl. What a nice aroma... Hints of yeast , chocolate and caramel. Not sweet but very pleasant.. Nice beige head, foamy. Taste is very intense, also due to the high alcohol percentage, but it is not dominant. Roasted malt is present. This is a seriously dangerous beer !!! Tastes sooooo good and it is very tempting to drink it too fast. Think twice before you take the next sip.

Jaar oud bokbier. Zalige volle aroma die doet denken aan een soort zoet, donker roggebrood en regenachtige winterdagen. Nodigt direct uit tot drinken. Lekker gebrand bittertje in de smaak, onder de (te) zoete overtoon. Prikkelt na op de tong. Na de geur verliest het snel aantrekkingskracht van indrukwekkend tot een stevig biertje waar je de tijd voor moet nemen
