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.

Tap. In general, not my favorite beer style. So take review with a bath of salts. Notez include the following: earthy raisin bread dough. Dough sweet breads. Fine.

tomekk1978 (407) - 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.

BoostIPA (1184) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a clear amber color with just a small whips of a head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, biscuit. Taste is semi sweet with low bitterness. Flavors of dark brown sugar, caramel, sweet dough, unsalted pretzels. Finishes very sweet, borderline cloying. I really love most of jacks abby offering but ths one just misses the mark. Wouldn’t drink again.

Lowenbrau (1866) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 30, 2014
500ml bottle @Cimmeria,Oviedo. 30-06-2014.
BBD: not found.
In short: a sweet and roasty dark ale.
Pours quite clear dark amber-copper, with nice off white head, poor lacing. Roasty, liquorice, ripe fruit aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some oily texture. Taste is caramel, roasty, liquorice, ripe fruit. Smooth and enjoyable, but not a classic doppelbock example.

Bottle, rudy brown pour, aroma is toasty, taste was very grassy and a fair bit bitter, it was a pretty interesting offering

Skinnyviking (6746) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle at home. Medium high fluffy off-white lasting head. Clear ruby body. Relatively sweet roasted malt caramel dried fruit cocoa aroma. Mild and relatively sweet roasted malt caramel cocoa flavor without much hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long sweet finish. Would never have guessed the alcohol percentage.

Vells (622) - LATVIA - JUN 12, 2014
Cant say I am impressed. Mostly light roasted maltiness, some caramel, some dried fruits, bit bready. I expect more intense aroma from doppelbock. Mostly sweet with light bitterness in finish. Quite well balanced, but feels bit too thin for me

zenkis (539) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUN 4, 2014
Very respectable double bock. Malty sweet, toasted, nutty on nose, thick bodied - as it should be. Beige-yellowish rocky top. Very interesting visual texture - like bubbly and silky at the same time, amber-reddish, intense color. Some notes of wood in aroma. A bit boozy on nose at the start but not later, light warming in palate, thick-oily texture, soft carbonation; Caramely, sweet and light darker malts bitter taste. This brew is not complex one but very enjoyable.

rejtable (1223) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
Beauty! Pours brown with a quickly fading head and no lacing. Nose is fig and syrup. Notes of figs, dark fruit like plums, pancake syrup, some nuts and a bit of roasted grain. Taste medium/heavy sweet and light bitterness. Body somewhat creamy with medium carbonation. Very drinkable alc well hidden.
