COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark strong interpretation of a double bock. Full bodied with a raisiny, dark fruit, slightly roasted and chewy malt character. Lagered for two months, a smooth malt character balances the high ABV of this strong beer.

LeRose (73) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottled, no date found. Poured a deep amber color into a lager glass. About two fingers if beige head. A little cloudy. Nice lacing on the glass. Smell is earthy, malty, yeasty almost bread like. Not picking up any fruity aromas. Taste is smooth malty sweet with slight bitterness. The word silky comes to mind. Nutty, a little bready, definitely earthy, and yeast character. Some acidity, maybe a hint of raisin or date notes. Very clean on the palate, light to medium body. Carbonation is moderate. Very smooth, balanced, and drinkable even with the alcohol. Seems well hidden to me. Enjoyable.

NikkTwist (1886) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Draft at Eulogy. Dark clear copper brown pour with a slim white ring. Full body. Has the general character of a doppelbock. Black cherry cordials. Chocolate pudding. Vanilla toffee caramels. Plums. Fresh figs. Bettered expectations.

LordMariscal (20) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 10, 2015
Cerveza tomada en el Kraken Oviedo. Bastante alcoholica. Color rojizo turbio. Sabores afrutados y ajerezados. Apenas hace espuma. Potente.

larsga (6523) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2015
Medium beige head. Clear deep red body with ongoing carbonation. Raisiny perfumy syrupy aroma, very delicate, with spicy toffee notes. Dry-sweet spicy raisiny toffee taste with wooden herbal notes. Wonderfully delicate. Wow. Full-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish raisiny chocolatey dusty caramel aftertaste with rye crisp bread, nutty, teak wood notes. Lovely, lovely flavours, melding together just right. I’m really impressed. Didn’t have high hopes for this one, but wow. (0.5l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen. It’s been in the cellar roughly 9 months.)

dfinney23 (2096) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Attractive amber pour with tan foam. Caramel chews and bread dough but there’s a bit of a stale quality. Maybe got trapped at the back of the fridge too long? Based on the other reviews, will have to give it another shot.

Pours dark reddish amber, med tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, raisin, brown sugar, caramel, nutty, prune. Flavor is sweet pruney malt, doughy french toast malt, berry, light spicy hop. Medium body, some sticky boozy malt. Very well balanced nice stuff.

bennetporter (223) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Pours a copper from a bottle, aroma is of caramelly golden raisins, like some European pudding or something. Flavor adds some roasted nuts, good bitterness to counterbalance the sweet malt. Rather big mouthfeel with some good alcohol burn at the end. Good beer.

Gedronken bij mijn neef benzai op zijn verjaardag. Robijnrood. Karamelsmaak en geur. Lichte tinteling in de nasmaak.
