Moderately sweet and delicately bitter flavour, full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Mildly dark and toasted malty base with nutty notes, dried fruits, raisins and molasses; sweet, dried fruity and slightly molassy finish with a hint of chocolate at the very end.

Bottiglia(Dank am Bodensee!):Deep ruby-amber coloured, clear, stable medium-sized off-white head; moderate to solid nose of dried fruits, molasses, toasted malt with an illusion of Port; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied, fortunately not sticky; lingering sweetish fruity-molassey finish with a balancing bitterness in the aftertaste. Well crafted, well balanced brew from a reliable Brauerei…

FatPhil (14098) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 16, 2009
500ml bottle (BeerAngel.de) 7.2%
Deep reddy brown, big frothy head. As it pours, there’s a rich malty and raisiny aroma. In the glass the malts take over and it’s big-time grains heading toward the husky side. Smooth slick palate. Roasted retronasals, even with burntness. Not surprising really, there’s definitely burntness in the taste. A few light fruity esters try to have a say, but they’re brief, drowned by the kick of drying noble hops and husky malts. Finish almost has a stale coffee-grounds feel to it. Feels potent, but not actually alcoholic. Not in the same class as the big gun doppelbocks, more just a strong dunkelbock. Nothing wrong in that. I must re-iterate - the roast here is great.
