Batavi (326) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
Emelisse Imperial Doppelbock 2015, gekocht bij Vinotake in Waalwijk. Uitgeschonken in een snifter van De Molen. Fraai koperkleurig helder bier, met een kleine beige schuimkraag, die wegzakt tot een dunne laag, die aan de binnenzijde van het glas blijft kleven. Bij dit bier is het aan te raden het om het rustig in te schenken, er kan veel gistdepot onder in de fles zitten, waardoor het bier gelijk troebel kan worden. De aroma’s zijn complex en rijk met tonen van: geroosterde mout, karamel, toffee, donker fruit als rozijnen en pruimen, chocolade, kruidnagel en lichte houtrook. Het smaakpallet is krachtig, complex en zeker niet te zoet, eerder zacht bitter. Veel tonen van karamel en toffee, donker brood, bittere chocolade, koffie, maar ook fruitigheid en zoetheid van rijpe banaan kersen en pruimen, met daarna kruidigheid van laurier en witte peper. De afdronk is zeer lang en hopbitter, carbonatie is zacht met een peperige finish. Weer een uitzonderlijk krachtig en smaakvol bier deze Imperial Doppelbock van Emelisse. Moutig en complex, met goed verborgen alcohol van 11% nu. Voor mij het beste bockbier tot nu toe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, raisins, hint of sweet dark fruits, dark bread, some brown sugar. Flavour is above medium sweet with a moderate bittersweet finish and some notes of alcohol. Body is nicely full. An excellent heavy Doppelbock.

Lore (1986) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 24, 2015
brown colour, moderate sized creamy beige-ish head; aroma of biscuit, smoke-woody notes, some dried fruitiness and alcohol notes; taste of malty sweetness, smoke notes and spicy alcohol; not a conventional doppelbock, but really good

caesar (6425) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle, BB 03 2013, large sample. Bottle is aged, but had this beer couple of times before, fresh as well as 1 year old. Definitely needed some age I notifed back then, so on purpose saved this one for a while. Rating this aged bottle now. Dark color, short frothy head. Aroma is a bit dusty, so a bit too much aged perhaps. Plenty of chocolate underneath, some cookie and biscuit. Some extra madeira now. Sticky sweetness from the fresh examole is more gone and balanced into big malty taste, with caramel, toffee and some molasses, but not sweet but malty and even a bit bitter. Velvety texture. Bit cherry and chocolate. Wonderful stuff.

Bottle from Biernavigatie. Dark brown colour, beige foam. Sweet nose of caramel, brown sugar and prunes. Sweet and malty, light bitter finish. Good beer in this style.

Zlotta (1561) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2015
0.33 l bottle as ’Imperial Doppelbock 2015’ from Mitra Den Bosch, at 11.0% abv and 45 EBU, best before end of 2018. Clear, dark red with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, tan head. Sweet-malty aroma of molasses, brown sugar, some raisins and prunes with notes of alcohol. Sweet, fruity-malty taste of raisins, prunes, molasses and caramel, followed by a medium long, average bitter finish with notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Medium to full body, creamy to oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very tasty stuff, apart from some notes in the aroma no alcohol detectable. However, although it is supposed to be a doppelbock, it may lack some complexity.

ruuurd (215) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2015
Dark, muddy pour. Spices, caramel and a lot of yeast. Special taste, wouldnt say this is a typical bock, but it is something different

08-10-2015. 33cl bottle at home. Appearance is brown, misty, small lasting head. Aroma is figs, fruit, raisins. Taste is sweet, slight liquorice. Mouthfeel is alcohol, bittersweet finish. Overall not as good as I expected, especially given the 11% ABV.
