Mothroy (77) - - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle at home. Rich chestnut brown colour with an excellent off-white, creamy head. Aroma of raisins, prunes and crystal malt. Very full flavours echoing the aroma but with a slightly cloying sweetness. Very smooth.

BlackHaddock (3645) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Tall half-litre flip-top bottle: BBD 11th Nov 14, poured (twice) into a ’Chimay’ chalice on 5th May 14. Red hue to the brew, beige head that soon turned into a wisp and collar. Dark berries, raisins and semi-sweet malts in the nose: the taste is sweeter but has the same berries and raisin feel to it’s flavours. A long way from the top Doppelbock brews but an interesting take on the style. Gets better as it warms a little, the second pour being almost like a different beer because of the temp differential.

Vaiz (3336) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear dark brown pour, almost no head. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, toffee and licorice. Flavor is very sweet, slightly warming, loads of licorice and with low carbonation but a decent body.

Frode (223) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle 50 cl.
Pours nice clear, dark amber to brown, with minimal off-white head. Aroma of malt, brown sugar and a touch of alcohol. Soft, lightly sweet, malty and a bit spiced flavour.

arojewski (49) - Old Bridge, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2014
Distinct caramel and malt aroma the second I opened it. Rich, transparent pour with quickly dissolved head. Light on the palate for such a deep malty flavor.

ruigo (1072) - 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.

VastActiv (2782) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 18, 2014

ThirstyBird (1542) - 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.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig süß, fruchtig. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig, getreidig, minimal alkoholisch.
