ALIBALI (289) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2016
Aromen von Kirschen,Vanille und Marzipan umspielen das Näschen. Ein Fruchtcocktail mit leichten Rauch/Malzverweisen. Der Trunk dann zuerst süß, superb vollmundig und abschließend dezent herb. Toll !!! Und auch der Nachhall weiß zu überzeugen, ist er doch angenehm, bockbiertypisch, wärmend und schön fruchtig. STYLE +. 0,3/3,50 aus der HOPFENLIEBE zu Norderstedt (vom Hahn).

PabloZab (977) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 9, 2016
Butelka 0.5l (08.02.2017). Piwo klarowne o miedzianej barwie. Piana koloru ecru obfita ale szybko znika pozostawiając tylko cienki kożuszek na powierzchni piwa, który praktycznie nie zdobi szkła. W aromacie mało "bocka" za to jest kawa, dopiero po ogrzaniu dochodzą nuty typowe dla koźlaka i subtelna nutka alkoholu. Całość tworzy delikatny ale przyjemny koźlakowy aromat. W smaku delikatne nuty opiekane, melanoidynowe fajnie się komponują ze wspomnianą wcześniej kawą. Piwo jest słodkawe z wyraźnymi chlebowymi akcentami, z fajnie ukrytym alkoholem, choć delikatne akcenty są wyczuwalne ale przyjemne w żaden sposób niemęczące. Pije się powoli ale z przyjemnością delektując każdym łykiem. Jak na koźlaka to jest bardzo dobrze.

Jonb5 (488) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2016
A: A bronze, reddish tint of auburn. Large tanned head made a quick getaway, low amount of lacing. S: Caramel, banana and a hint of booze. T: On the sweet side, dangerously drinkable as the booze was almost undetectable, finished with a hint of slightly burnt caramel. M: Light body for the style, not much carbonation, smooth, slipped down well. O: Probably the least boozy dopplebock I’ve ever had, also managed to be subtle for the high ABV.

ciocanelu (899) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - FEB 22, 2016
Dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has toasted malts, dark sugar and rye bread. Taste starts malty, just slightly sweet with caramel notes and gets bitter on the finish with more roastiness. Body is medium, a bit soft at first but leaves your mouth very dry. Quite good overall. Easy to drink with a well hidden alcohol content.

zenkis (747) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 18, 2016
Decent without extras. Too carbonated and sharp textured, gets more drinkable with degassing and staying for a bit in the glass. Medium+ body, very few notes of nutty, cake. Sweet, maybe even too sugary forwarded in aroma and flavor.
