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.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Toasted malts, a little roast, dark fruit, a touch of alcohol. Pours brown with an off white head, nice lace. Flavors of darker fruit, toast, soft roast, moderate sweetness cleans up in the finish with just a hint of alcohol. Very well balanced and put together. A style I do not normally enjoy, this was very solid.

Pour from a bottle left over from my trip to the brewery earlier this year. Dark copper amber-ish pour with a think white head. Big malty nose. Caramel, chewy malty goodness. Nice boozy heat in the finish, not too much - just right!

mcclainc50 (204) - New York, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours a dark amber color with an off white head leaving little lacing. Mild aroma with barely noticeable malt note. Light flavor with malt notes. Unimpressive beer overall.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Beautiful mahogany hue topped by a long lasting beige head. Rich caramel and toffee notes with dark bread characteristics. Slight twangy crabapple and fig notes for some complexity. Very faint herbal hop tone upon the finish. Solid brew but just short of the best of the genre.

MaBeer1972 (1368) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Single bottle from DeBuca’s. Poured into a snifter. A deep ruby brown color with a thick tan head that quickly fades to nothing. Low carbonation. Aroma of sweet earthy prunes with booze. Flavor is smooth and malty with booze. Somewhat warming. Goes down smoothly. First glass was much better than the first though.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2014
A clear brown colored beer, with a firm beige head. It has a little aroma, some fruits with a litte yeast. The taste starts sweet, it become stronger fruity. Than moving to some bitter. The aftertaste has sweets from alcohol with bitter notes and hints of fruits.

Bottle. Pretty reddish-brown color with a tall head. Nose of chocolate fudge, raisin, dried plums. Rich malt flavors, fudge, raisins, some port. Tangy fruit and soft bitterness in the finish. Full and silky, but not heavy. Lovely high-alcohol doppelbock.

Beerhunter111 (8393) - Hasborn, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein rötlichbraunes Bier mit ordentlicher beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Karamell, etwas Schoklade, sehr vollmundig. Geschmack süß nach Karamell und Schokolade, etwas Röstmalzig, den Alkohol spürt man auch deutlich.

_angst_ (3058) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle bought @ bierkompass.de Pours hazy reddish brown with a rather thin fizzy mocha head that doesn’t leave and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and slightly floral with sweet dark bread, caramel, butterscotch, dried flowers, moist soil, cocoa powder, hay and orange zest. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter, malty and floral with sweet dark bread, caramel, buttered biscuits, chocolate covered graham crackers, prunes, hay, moist soil and orange zest. Mouthfeel is soft, round, slightly boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, slightly bitter, malty and floral with sweet dark bread, chocolate covered graham crackers, prunes, raisins, hay, alcohol and orange zest. Pretty strange but I like it…
