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 (5625) - 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.

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.

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_ (2757) - 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…

50 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours clear copper color with a small head. Grainy and slightly malty aroma, some roast and caramel notes. Nice creamy palate, bready and malty flavor, some toasty notes, caramel, faint nut notes and wood. A positive surprise.

500 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby amber colour with a white head. Aroma is rather grainy with toasted whole-grain bread, mild herbal notes and some sweetness. Rich flavour of toasted bread, grains, pungent sweetness, herbs and mild red berries. Almost full bodied. Really rich and pleasant.

tomekk1978 (447) - POLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Barwa: głęboko miedziana, klarowna. Piana w kolorze ecru, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości, względnie szybko opadająca, ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: słodowy, głównie chlebowy, karmelowy, toffi, czekoladowy, melanoidynowy, z dodatkiem suszonych owoców. Mimo dużej mocy alkohol całkiem dobrze ukryty. Całość w miarę ogrzewania coraz bardziej przyjemna i niemęcząca. Smak: słodowy, pełny, słodko - wytrawny, z pewnością nie jest to ulepek. Karmel, czekolada, spieczone ciasto, lekkie nuty owocowe oraz wyraźnie alkoholowy finisz. Tu również w miarę ogrzania się piwa smak czekoladowo - karmelowy wzmaga się. Piwo zakupione w Żywcu (kolejne :) ) z powodu rekomendacji na ratebeer. Oprócz tego zdobyło brązowy medal podczas tegorocznej edycji konkursu World Beer Cup w kategorii German Style Doppelbock. Powyższe zobowiązuje. Saxonator faktycznie przywraca (choć tylko częściowo) wiarę w bocki i powoduje, że zaczynam przypominać sobie za co je wcześniej ceniłem. Jest to konkretne i złożone, bezkompromisowe piwo, a mimo wszystko w stylu. Wprawdzie nie dorównuje innemu amerykańskiemu przedstawicielowi tego gatunku Perkulator Coffee Dopplebock z browaru Dark Horse, który chyba zostanie już na zawsze moim idealnym koźlakiem,ale i tak jest bardzo dobrze. Szkoda dość wysokiej ceny, ale piwa z USA niestety muszą przebyć dość długą drogę do Polski i częściowo można to zrozumieć.
