bartlebier (2229) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2015
50cl swingtop bb11/15, Maruhn. Ruby maple pour, very nice cap. Releases little of its supposed world-class (WBC 2012 Gold) quality charm upon nosing, even when letting it chamber: some roasted nuts, dried molasses on Graubrot toast. Taste is equally hermetic: slow honey, nut paste, honey-coated malts, Kellogg’s Smacks: quality foodstuffs, but little to redeem this heavy-hitting, bulky style that will probably always remain too literal a sum of its constitutive ingredients to me, although the abv is well-hidden, mouthfeel very smooth. The yeast does its thing without any extra lure, joining honey with hops in honest toil, then goes quietly home for a hard-won Feierabend. After downing the better part of a bottle you can feel your paunch starting to expand, the appetite for more inspired fare dwindling.

malrubius (1935) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle straight from a beer market in southern Munich. Clear amber with lasting head and lace. Mild grassy spicy aroma with lots of toasted caramel. Toasted caramel mildly bready sweetness with some slight medicnial aftertaste and grassy woody bitterness. Medium body. Need to let it warm up a bit. Okay.

bonkiedeaap (350) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer is dark ruby colored, with a small and fast disappearing cream colored head, CO2 level is good. In the aroma the sweetness of dark fruits and caramel, and also tones of roasted malts and a hint of alcohol. The taste is light sweet with tones of caramel, to change in a light malty bitterness with a alcoholic finish. The finish is malty and a little alcoholic. Overall, a nice Doppelbock.

Percy0103 (234) - MEXICO - DEC 31, 2014
Reviewed on 19/12/14. Bottle, 500ml. A clear dark ruby beer with a small white head that fades away almost inmediatly. Aroma is of dried fruits, alcohol and maybe apple cider. Not much going on really. Taste is bitter with a strong alcoholic finish. Moderate carbonation and some astringency. Gets out of control at the end. Nice deers in the bottle.

Sdaniel90 (459) - 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.
