77ships (8117) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2012
Draft @ Borefts 2012. Crazy dark red ruby amber with a HUGE, lightly tanned head. Light lager yeast, dark thick sugar, syrup, lighter hops, pine resin, thick malt. Taste is thick sweet syrup, prune jam. creamy dark sugar, thick caramel, dark fruits, pine resin in the back, wow dude. Very creamy body. Wow dude, this is some serious stuff, this is a doppelbock? It is like they made a barley wine out of a doppelbock.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2012
Orange amber coloured beer. Decent head that holds nice10. Light sourish smell and taste, dark fruits. Slightly caramel. Something inside that makes it less pleasant for me.

goozen (3810) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2012
Tap at Boreft Beer Festival ’12, Bodegraven: Hazy dark amber coloured brew with taste of fruity, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Quite an suprise from conservative Bavaria.

Borresteijn (6422) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2012
On tap at BBF’12. Slightly hazy dark reddish brown colour, thick off-white head. Aroma is sweet, soft, malty, dark fruits, some tartness from the spelt I guess, toasted malts. Flavour is sweet, smooth, dark fruits, prunes and raisins, hint of roasted malts, light tartness, lemon, nice bitter finish. Fullbodied, smooth and thick beer. Really nice stuff.

thewolf (12081) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2012
Tap @ Fermentoren, Cph. Pours murky redish amber with a stunning, staying, large, creamy, yellowish head. Aroma has caramel, light vanilla, vinious, soft red berries. Low carbonation, super creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is malty sweet, with caramel aplenty, light toasted, some chewiness, vinious, light dusty. A hint of smoke and sweet vanilla cakes. Very nice. Hides the ABV great.

rauchbierlover (638) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2012
Tap @ the brewery. Thanks Andreas! Ruby body with a thick white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, ripe fruits. Taste is cherry, bread. Body is full, carbonation almost flat. Body is oily, very oily. The best doppelbock I had so far. I never thought I’d have found something better than Celebrator or Korbinian...
