culchiem (3516) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber with a thin head. Aroma is dusty malt. Flavour is a bit weird, kinda sour booze that hits the back of the mouth, warming and malty but strange overall.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2012
#767 Der wenige Schaum ist schnell verflogen. Leicht hopfig-herbe Aromen liegen in der Luft. Der Antrunk ist dann vollmalzig-würzig. Im Abgang eher herb bis bitter. Der Alk.-Gehalt drückt massiv auf die Süffigkeit. Insgesamt ein eher sperriger Bock, der in der Stärke übertreibt "Bambergs stärkstes Bier" halt. Test vom 19.2.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,7,9,10,9 - 8,75

MrHangover (3952) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle @ de Paas. This pous out a clear, dirty brown colour with a small, white head. Malty, earthy aroma’s and some funk. Flavour is faints, packs an alcohol kick and still has a watery body. I didn’t liked this one that much...

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 10, 2012
On Tap @ the brewpub. The head is ok, the body amber. It smells darkmalty and a bit alcoholic. The taste is very malty, a bit darkmalty-smoky, also a little bit sour. The consistency is oily. 11/10/10/10/12/10

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Brown half litre bottle, best before 2nd Jun 09. Poured into half litre ’Berliner Kindl’ glass and drank in Jan 09. This review was done while eating brown bread and a Smoked German Salami salad. Because of this breweries history (I have visited twice) I assumed this would be a real smokey special with loads of hidden strenght. That was not the case, there was more smokiness in my salami then in the beer! The beer poured a clear dark amber with very little head, even after a vigorous pour. No aroma worth mentioning when the beer is first poured and cold. As it warms a Peaty (like some Whiskies) aroma does appear, a warming open fire sort of thing. It is however, too little, too late. The alcohol is evident in the mouthfeel and taste. A little smokiness arrives in the aftertaste and a slight warming of the throat followed each mouthful (it isn’t a sipping beer). I feel this is a half and half compromise between a Rauch and Doppelbock, with the Doppelbock coming out on top, but only just. Having said that, I enjoyed the beer, I just wish I could have scored it higher in some of the other review areas.

Tranquillity (1861) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
Draught, cafe brecht. Dark gold body, small white head. Aroma malty, but rather weak. The taste is too much of alcohol, and the finish is weak but very bitter.

Jonb5 (507) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2012
Copper colour, hazy, minimal head. Slight musty aroma, strong hints of booze, a bit hoppy. Tasted charcol and roasted malts. All flavours were slightly drowned out by the booze, it was a bit too much. Not smooth but not fizzy. Ok to have tried but won’t seek out again.
