rakkasan (142) - Bresso, - AUG 7, 2010
on tap pizzeria Milan. Dark brown with light brown creamy head. Aroma of toasted caramel with a light hint of chocolate and apricot. Taste is balanced, roasted coffee, chocolate and dried fruit, lightly bitter finish, very creamy. A good beer.

deep reddish-brown color; sweet, caramel malt aroma; sweet, caramel malt flavor up front with nutty, mild dark fruit notes; semi bitter, bready finish; very well balanced and quite smooth; this is not quite a doppelbock, but it is a very enjoyable beer

Kita (1348) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 19, 2015
Draft in Cortina D’Ampezzo. Clear brown color with small frothy off-white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, light roasted malt, dried fruits and grassy hops. Taste starts with sweet caramel and nutty, follows by mild fruity acidity and bready with mild bitter finish. Medium body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Pretty nice surprise from Forst...

Lambister (285) - FINLAND - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle @ west coast of Italy. Darkish brown color with a thin light brown head. Nose is pretty sweet with a nutty character. While flavors are malty and roasted, it has notes of nuts. Bit too much bite at the middle cuts the finish and the flavors too quickly, otherwise decent brew.

zenkis (647) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours coppery, intense reddish with beige-yellowish finger wide frothy top, light to medium lasing. Aroma- first was unpleasant boiled vegetables, a bit toasted malts although almost no malty, some licorice, a bit sour- messy. Taste is sweet, malty flavor, a bit nutty, minimal bitter, pleasant but short. Moderate to full body, light dry finish, toasted-roasted like aftertaste. Except aroma- enjoyable brew.

Moravius (748) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2014
Niedliches kleines Fläschchen (20 cl) von Getränkefeinkost Berlin. - Rotbraun, klar, rasch schwindender Schaum. - In der Nase breit süßes Karamelmalz mit schwachen Röstnoten, herb fruchtig-weinig, etwas fuselig - wie ein typischer Doppelbock halt. - Antrunk kräftig karamelmalzig aber nicht zu süß. Brotrinde, leichtes Röstmalz. Mild rezent, vollmundig. Abgang kräftig holzig-krautig hopfenherb, wenngleich etwas dumpf. Längerer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Ordentlicher Doppelbock nach deutscher Tradition. Den „Maisgritz“ (Maisgrieß) schmeckt man nicht heraus.

McGarnigle (575) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2014
My bottle has a ’Sale’ sticker on it and is about two months past its due date. Still, the faults of this beer don’t seem to have anything to do with freshness. I applaud the Italians from taking a shot at doppelbock, but this is thin and weak. There is an almost chocolatey tone underneath, which is nice, but not enough. Sorry excuse for the style, though not that bad beer overall.
