janubio (424) - - JAN 9, 2013
500 ml. bottle, porus a small brown head, amber colour. Smells of caramel, chocolate, banana and dark fruits, with hints of vanilla. Very sweet palate, though I found the body too light. Taste of dark fruits, chocolate, xerry or port wine and a hint of coffee in the end, though it keeps the sweetness.

tfredvik (1179) - 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.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 months before BB date, courtesy of my mother in law, from somewhere in Berlin]

FunkyF (103) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014

Moravius (568) - 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.

Harubi (5) - - OCT 9, 2014 does not count
Quite light on the nose, candied fruit, old plum aroma. Appearance in clear brown, no cloud. Bready in taste and quite bitter in aftertaste. Would go well with creamy food or light stew probably.
