Grima (2099) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, - NOV 17, 2012
Very nice bottle design. Pours dark ruby red with flat head, that disappears very quickly. Smells malty fruity, with lots of plum. Starts sweet malty, slight sugary, with some plum and licorice. Goes into a malty-sugary and slight fruity. Awesome Doppelbock!!!

Garry_Evans (29) - HONG KONG - AUG 12, 2014
Dark brown with short lived white head. Not a lot of aroma. Full mouth feel with maltiness that gets sweet towards the end. Light for 7.2% ABV. Nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ippopotamo36 (173) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 14, 2014
0,5 lt bottle in Kosovo courtesy of a German colleague. Pours a chestnut-amber clear color, very tick beige head. Nose: dry prunes, caramel, malts. Mouth: very tasty. Besides of its 7,2% of alcohol this beer remains very easy to drink. The initial feel is amazingly balanced, the sweetness is not invasive but stays in the background providing a pleasant feel among very balanced notes of black bread, dry fruits, amber malts and a stunning carbonation. Thumbs up! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Calisky (730) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 5, 2014
Couleur brune, reflet ambré, sombre, legere mousse. Bon nez de caramel sucré. Gout doux de caramel sucré, note de malt, et grain de raisin. Fin un peu liquoreuse.
