The nose is filled with complex notes of figs, fruitcake, port, licorice, cherry, raisin chocolate, black toffee, coffee and caramel, while it tastes deliciously thick and chewy, with great complexity showing notes of fruits, coffee-roastiness, molasses, licorice, and toffee. This beer is a meal!
Editor's note. The draught version is 9% abv, but also contained under this listing. Edit #2 The bottles are now 9% as well (from 7%)

On tap at Craft Room. Clear deep darker ruby/amber body with an off white creamy head, quite lovely. Dry malty aroma, raisins, caramel. Medium lean body, malts abound, caramel, vague fruitiness - raisins, very slightly oily. Dry finish, liiiight roasty bitterness. While not particularly bursting with complexity, this is a supremely drinkable beer, not too sweet, not as boozy as I heard it was. Nothing off about it at all - and that’s something one should appreciate in a Doppelbock, or strong lager of any kind. Good job!

16.9 oz bottle. Deep chestnut brown with a lacy bone head. Nose is grape jelly and buttered wheat toast. Medium body with a sharp fuzzy tang. Taste is brown bread, date chutney, clove and tobacco. Sweet but not cloying. Coincidentally a fine choice for an Xmas Eve warmer.

Bottle @ Deans Sticky Bomb Shelter Tasting, thnx to the crew for sharing! Pours a clear, darker golden beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma of sweet malts, some faint, dried herbal notes, dark fruits. Flavor is sweet, malty again, typical Doppelbock, a hint of booze. Fruity sweet aftertaste. Quite nice, lacks a decent aftertaste and complexity though.

Thx! to Deanso. 500 ml. bottle sampled @ “Dean’s sticky Bomb Shelter” Tasting. Deep amber, little tanned head. Nose is hugely metallic, some cough syrup, fish guts, sweet herbs,… Taste is herbal, metallic, syrupy fish guts, mocha, metallic syrup,.. Body is a touch thin, metallic. About okay, looking at the high scores on here, this one is simply lost on me.

500ml bottle pours murky cloudy dark red brown with tiny head. Nose is big sweet dark fruit, plum, caramel, maple and crust. Taste is a bit too sweet, body slighty on the thin side, lots of dark fruity plum, maple, raisin, bread and caramel. Finishes sweet, sticky, a touch of medicinal cherry and berry, dark fruit, bread, malt.

Bouteille - De couleur brune avec des reflets rubis et une fine mousse beige - Au nez des arômes de figues, de banane, fruits sec, du malt beaucoup de malt, du caramel, une pointe de vanille un nez complexe et envoûtant - En bouche de la figue, des raisin sec, abricot, caramel et beaucoup de malt, tout aussi complexe, impressionnant - Corp puissant, amertume légère/moyenne, carbonation correcte, douce et sucrée, final douce et maltée - une très bonne surprise, je ne m’attendais pas à une telle qualité et une telle complexité impressionnant
