ruigo (874) - PORTUGAL - APR 19, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a clear brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, raisins and malty. Average carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is more sweet than bitter. Overall, bit watery for a doppelbock, very drinkable but not remarkable.

ThirstyBird (1217) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 9, 2014
Pours a clear deep brown color with orange highlights and a tan head. The nose is caramel, grain, fruit. The taste is fruit, toffee, grain, grass, a bit of alcohol ending fruity and a bit sharp. The body is medium and a bit slick with decent carbonation. It’s a decent beer though nothing really stands out as being special.

Beerhunter111 (5660) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig süß, fruchtig. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig, getreidig, minimal alkoholisch.

Erzengel (1939) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2014
Very gushing brew! The beer starts malty, caramel. The mainpart is like "Blockmalz", a bit more bitter. In the aftertaste slightly dry, nice Blockmalz-taste, slightly bitter.
A very interesting Doppelbock. Nice dry and still highly drinkable! --> 10/12/11/10

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2014
Clear dark caramel colour, diminishing white head. Quite boozy aroma, caramel, red fruit, raisins, light madeira. Sweet flavour, raisins, malts. Bit thin. FInish malts, raisins. Quite cloying sweet. 6 months before the best before it already feels quite old. Not bad, but I’m not a real fan either.
(From 50cL bottle @ home)

brewmari (3) - - FEB 11, 2014 does not count
Nice rusty brown color, good head, little bit too sweet for my liking. Otherwise good smooth, caramelly, taste of ripe berries.

gueuze (251) - - JAN 18, 2014
Geruch nach Trockenobst, fruchtiger Geschmack. Kaum Bittere im Abgang, dafür aber gut eingestellte Restsüße und schön versteckter Alkohol.

Tayeth (115) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2014
Aroma malzig, mit Noten von Tabak, Vanille und Brot, im Geschmack dann sehr rund, den höheren Alkoholgehalt schmeckt man kaum, nur geringe Bittere, leicht säuerlich, etwas merkwürdiger Nachgeschmack
