omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2006
Bottled. Clear nut brown, firm, creamy head. Deep buttery malt aroma with notes of spun sugar. Sweet with wonderfully soft mouthfeel anf fantastic buttery malt flavours. There’s caramel, raisins on top of the malt simmers some light grassy hops, but its the vast malt character that drives the beer. If it’s something that keeps this beer from achieving perfection it’s the sweetness.

schuim (36) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2001
This is nice, a warming malt flavour. Although bottem fermeting still full of flavour. A tempting half liter size. Hear hear for Fassla.

rauchbier (3593) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2004
Bottled. Amber bronze, good thin white head and good condition. Malty and slightly woody in the nose with some hops and background melanoidins. Full bodied and chewy in the mouth with some peppery hop notes, plenty of malt and obvious alcohol. Quite bitter in the finish with a chalky dryness that lingers just a little too long. Sells its self as the strongest Bamberg beer, but the alcohol prevents some of its more subtle nuances from shining through. Seemed more balanced on tap, although after 2 drinks balance was the last thing I was capable of .

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2005
Bottle @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Hazily fruity and a hint of smoked malts. Crispy and fresh and hard to tell the alco content. Moreish.

johndoughty (3859) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle. Clear bronze with a small head.Slightly sweet with a presence that is quite deceptive.Only when I looked at the bottle did I realise how powerful it was.No carbonation and dangerously drinkable

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2005
Germany, Nov 2003. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, roasted nuts, caramel), with notes of smoke, dates, and maple. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Decadent example, maybe a bit too much alcohol though.

maeib (8585) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2006
Bottled. An amber coloured beer with no head or lacing. The aroma is sweet and malty with caramel brown sugar notes. The taste is sweet and malty with some bready malts and a good depth of nuttiness. Some alcohol warmth. A nice beer but there are many much better doppelbocks.

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - MAY 26, 2007
On tap drunk it in Maastricht. A nice ballanced beer. With a taste of alcohol and roasted malts

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at RBESG. Translucent chestnut colour with a pretty well behaved head. Tasty and clean with plenty of alcohol showing but it really works unlike a lot of German bottled beers. Malty and fruity with some delicate hoppage way down underneath. Luxurious mouthfeel. Very good stuff.
