Look; tan-beige carpet on clear medium brown body. Aroma; chocolate, caramel, mocca, strong plum jam and solid brown malts. Taste; strong caramel, chocolate, plum jam, sweet roasted malts, berries - leading to a lingering sweet malty almondy finish. Good body, soft up carbonation. Overall a nice doppelbock on normal abv.

mariuszek (1101) - Gdynia, POLAND - OCT 22, 2015
Clear, chestnut color, thin head quickly dissipating to nil. Rich aroma of caramel, malt, plum, dried fruits, raisins and spices. Taste is malty, caramel sweet, dried fruits and spices again. Medium to low carbonation, medium body, alcohol well hidden. The aroma and taste reminds of Christmas, a bit like gluhwein. Very good doppelbock..

Foerdifuxx (217) - Franconia, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2015
Dark red amber coloured beer with a fine, medium, medium lasting, off-white head. Caramel, herbs, french brandy, light dark fruits, light chocolate cake and roasted malt in general . Very malty in taste, good portion of warming alcohol, medium to long, roast malt dominated finish. Oily texture, medium to full body, soft carbonation. World Beer Cup Gold Award 2012, it’s incredible solid but i fail to unterstand the gold rating. I guess i’m not skilled enough.
