bartlebier (1530) - Belchum im Breisgau, - JAN 29, 2013
50cl bottle, with helpful flip-top bottle (thankfully). Unique Doppelbock that pours a solid reddish-brown with a good head. Immediate fumes of its powers are released, some spice, nut not much else in the way of aroma. Medium mouthfeel, dry and slightly sticky palate. Taste is an interesting blend of typical and idiosyncratic Doppelbock notes: roasted malts, marzipan, caramelised fruit, wayward esters, decent hop bitterness somewhere in the mix. Somewhat reminiscent of Gulden Draak, with drier malts and more hops. The alcoholic burn is unmistakebly there though, and at 8.1% I found this quite a heady sipper, not smooth drinking at all (compared to some 9-10 ABV trappists and IPAs) - which is where the helpful flip-top comes in handy. - May have to revisit later in the season.

Botella de 50 cl en el lúpulo tomada en mayo de 2011. lote 35001v hasta 09-2011. color oscuro casi negro con bastante espuma de beige persistente. Cuerpo medio con 8.1 vol que le dan una buena sensación alcohólica. Sabores y aromas maltosos y cereales ligeramente tostados y dulces. Buena, para repetir.

Excalibur123 (114) - Soria, SPAIN - MAY 24, 2014
Vierte un bonito color ámbar rojizo; abundante cabeza de espuma beige que perdura en la copa, aromas muy marcados a caramelo, uva moscatel y vino oloroso; en boca entrada agradable y maltosa; amargor equilibrado con el alcohol bien integrado sus ocho grados casi no se aprecian, largo pos gusto pero un tanto seco, una buena cerveza dopellbock .

Chopper925 (117) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy, beautiful amber-brown colour, with malty brown head. Aromas of toffee, dark chocolate and dried berries. Decent sourness, sweet, malty and medium bitter, alcohol taste comes to the fore. Carbonation is rather flat, but balances well with the heavy body of this bock. Looong and tasty malty finish. One of the best Bockbeers we have in Germany! Absolutely must drink.

downender (6159) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Deep amber in colour with slight carbonation. Berry fruits, some brown sugar and a hint of roast before a warming alcohol finish. Avoided being excessively sweet and enjoyable for it.

Bamsen78 (2968) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2014
Bottle (2 litres!). Pours cloudy dark amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit, with mild notes of hops. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with pronounced fruity and hoppy notes. Sweetish finish, with mild, hoppy aftertaste. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel. Well balanced A very good Doppelbock!

Muggus69 (1139) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - APR 26, 2014
500mL swingtop bottle BB 10/14 Deep ruby body, small dense off-white head persists. Nose is quite restrained; toffee, grainy maltiness, faint notes of cocoa & spicy dried fruits. Full bodied, doesn’t allude to the big abv however. Low carbonation, slight warming. Malt aplenty on the body; grainy cereals, light caramel, biscuit, toasted nuts, notes of dried apricot and sultana. Finishes with a reasonably decent bitterness, drying alcohol lingers, drawing out the palate. Overall reasonable. Sort of expected (wished for) more in such a big beer, but still tasty.
