For a doppelbock this is a really good and refreshing brew. The creamy head and has notes of sweetness and even light hints of fruit. A good beer and an impressive bottle in the large version.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Pours dark brown with a fine low foam. Some ripe apricot, but mostly lots of caramel and sweet chocolate. Less sweet than my deScription might imply, but still hefty. Low but lingering finish.

Clear copper red color, foam layer. Sugar sweet nose. The taste is sticky, sweet, oily and a little alcoholic. Calm sweet aftertaste.

Amazing. Rich and well-rounded body. It doesn’t have that much malty sweetness, only a little. But still everything fits together really well. Roast, dried fruit, chocolate and a very little hint of coffee in the finish. There is also a note, that I would mostly describe as cactus, which sounds really unfriendly, but it is not :) Overall one of my favourites.

SinH4 (3183) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2016
Brown-amber color with beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is caramel, raisins, some booze. Taste is toffee, caramel, raisins, liquorice, quite chewy. Carbonation is average. It’s a bit too sweet and alcoholic I think.

Kibble and dates nose, hints of honey and vinegar. Muddy brown, medium yellow head, little retention. Rich caramel, kibble and grain. Raisin finish. Medium body easy carbonation. Dynamic for the style, well balanced.

Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo o ladnej metnej barwie bursztynowo rubinowej, pianie sporej i kremowej choc szybko opadajacej. Mnostwo slodowosci troche moze jakby przy slodkawe ale raczej o przyjemnym wrazeniu. Alkohol rozgrzewa lekko wyczuwalny i dajacy likierowa konstrukcje tego szlachetnego niefiltrowanego doppelbocka. Tresciwe i solidne, doskonale uzupelnialo wazywna kolacje z fasolka w roli glownej. Pozostawia na ustachj slodki u dlugi finisz, bardzo przyjemne, polecam.
