Marcius (142) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Dark amber color with medium foam without duration. Aroma of toasted malt . Very sweet , in contrast with the toasted malt and a slight bitterness . A good beer but could be a little less sweet.

RexTalionis (2133) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Flip-top 50 cl bottle. Pours clear mahogny in color with a small off-white head. Bready maltyness, brown sugar and dark syrup sweetness in aroma. Sweet malty and notes of syrup in taste. A bit of soursweet dark bread as well in aftertaste. Some light burnt grainy notes as well.

300813. Bottle at home. Pours clear dark ruby with a nice head that disappears leaving a ring. Aroma malts, sugar. Too sweet, feels like half baked.

Marstonlad (333) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
A color of reddish copper with a little white head. Aroma is overall very malty, plenty of bready and nutty notes. Taste is at first surprisingly sweet but dries a little towards the finish. German style maltiness dominates with caramel, bread and bisquit. Medium bodied, smooth and drinkable palate. Overall this malts-driven beer is very tasty but initially a bit too sweet for me.

mikkopen (788) - Oulu, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2013
500 ml bottle. Clear dark orange-brown colour, thin off-white head. Caramel-sweet malty aroma with dark fruits and toasted notes. The flavour is sweet, caramel-malty, with nuts and dark fruits.

JaKeAFC (453) - ITALY - AUG 24, 2013
50 cl swing top bottle, 7.2%. Dark redo to mahogany color, clear, short beige head, no lacing. Smell of toasted malts, stout, coffee. Aroma is pretty sharp on the toasted malts, dark bread, caramel and whiskey, butter biscuits. Some fruity esters. Taste has a dark-sugar sweetness baked by a pomace-brandy like bitterness. Finish is fairly dry with fuel notes. Alcoholic, sustained carbonation, medium bodied. Would say this is something to be expected from a doppelbock, and overall it’s pretty clean and good enough.
