janubio (527) - - 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.

deepeary (288) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2015
500 ml bottle from LCBO. BB 01.26.2016. Pours clear, deep mahogany. Minimal tan head. Nose is prunes, dark fruit, molasses, and some roasty character. Taste has similar notes, well balanced sweet malt. Some fruity malty finish.

lesifflebiere (1474) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
Boisson de couleur acajou foncé et presque opaque, avec une mousse rare et un nez un peu aviné, avec des notes de raisins rouges et de boisé. La bouche est de noisettes, de sucre d’orge, et de jus de raisin doux. L’alcool est joliment restreint, bien que présent. Un bock double de facture tout à fait classique, exécuté sans sortir des sentiers battus par le style, mais très bien fait dans le genre, ce qui en fait une bonne introduction à celui-ci.

RhetoricalAns (596) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle. Mahogany pour, not a lot of head. Aroma and taste of sweet toffee malt, dark fruit, sweet. Mouth feel is slightly syrupy. Some warming alcohol. A little too sugary for me.

bartholos (98) - GERMANY - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle. Dark amber colored with a frothy tan head. Alcohol is already noticeable in the nose. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and dark chocolate as well as dark berries and plum. The taste is sweet with a light bitter finish. Besides the roasty aroma and the notes of fruits, hints of sherry join into the flavor. Quite complex but well balanced with a medium body, medium carbonation and some alcoholic warmth.

Panzerfaust (613) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JUN 29, 2015
Beautiful pour, with a dark mahogany color that looks crimson against a strong light. A gray-ish ead dissappears after a few seconds. Powerful aroma of caramel malts with notes of molasses, beet-root juice, truffles, nuts and Christmas spices. Some phenols or liquorish notes come to the fore but they are generally not distracting. Taste is sweet but not cloying. Caramelly and rich, maybe not as overwhelming as Celebrator or Andechser, but still pretty intense stuff. Medium body and sticky texture. Warming. Feels like a liquid meal. The 0,5 liter bottle was fine (it would be too much for other examples of the style). That speaks out loud about a drinkable Doppelbock. Nice.

jamaty (1242) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Morena oscura. Espuma de 2-3 dedos blanca. Aroma a caramelo y malta tostada. Muy cremosa y suave en boca con marcado carácter a chocolate, caramelo y algo de especias. Disimula bien el alcohol. Buena cerveza, agradable, pero dos cansarían.
