Sdaniel90 (406) - Mexico City, MEXICO - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. Clear ruby with a frothy tan head. Aroma is of dried fruits, caramel, cereal and alcohol. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Sweet malt character with a robust alcohol and bitter finish. Heavy and warming, but lacks the character of a top German Strong Lager.

robto (30) - Belas, PORTUGAL - NOV 25, 2014
50cl bottle at home. It pours a clear dark copper colour with a decent, but dissipating beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel and Dark fruits (lots of plums). Taste is also sweet malts, some roasted malts, brown sugar, raisins and plums and some yeast. It is medium to low body with medium carbonation. It’s not that bad.

Schöner Doppelbock mit eher mildem Aroma, welches aber dem Geschmack keinen Abbruch macht. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tfredvik (1203) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2014
Dark copper body with a beige head. Extremely malty and strong aroma of malt extract, sweet caramel and dark dried fruits (lots of prunes). Strong flavour of malt extract and sweet caramel, dark dried fruits in that back and some nutty traces. Very sweet taste with a light bitterness in the finish. Close to full-bodied, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. A good one if you like sweet malty stuff.

Moravius (603) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2014
Flasche von Ambrosetti, Berlin. - Tiefes Kupferrot, schwach trüb, kurzlebiger Schaum. - In der Nase bockbiertypische, warm alkoholische Malzsüße, Rosinen und ein wenig dunkle Frucht. - Antrunk breit dunkelmalzig und karamelsüß; Bayrisch Blockmalz mit süßer Fruchtigkeit (Pflaumenmus, Kirschkonfitüre). Durchschnittlich rezent, vollmundig. Im Abgang sehr milde, schwach krautige Hopfenherbe, überlagert von der nachhängenden breiten Süße. Der Alkoholgehalt tritt zu deutlich hervor. - Nicht unangenehmer aber viel zu süßer, zu wenig kerniger Doppelbock.
