Grima (2209) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, - NOV 17, 2012
Pours dark brown reddish with no foam. Smells malty roasty, caramelly. Starts very malty, with lots of plum and licorice. Middle part is warming, strong malty-fruity with plum and some pine wood. Goes into a fruity finish with lots of plum, licorice and roasted malts.

motelpogo (7701) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 1, 2015
bottle from pilsen’s old pivoteka. nutty brown with a shortlived beige head; loads of stewed fruit in the aroma, tending towards schnapps but just kept in check by some tinny hop character; modest bitterness with some prunes and plum jam and a light hint of chocolate spread; a bit messy but not awful

Bottle at home from the Bottle Stop. Poured a clear reddish amber with a thin greay / beige head. Aroma of sweet malts, some caramel, some fruit. Flavour is nice roasted malts, dark fruits, fairly thin palate, easy to drink, alcohol fairly well hidden. Tasty stuff.

Dark nut brown color, small off-white head. Woody, bready aroma with hints of caramel. Medium to full-bodied. Caramel, hints of sweet licorice, sweet bread. Low bitterness, alcohol well covered. Sweet doppelbock. Not perhaps one I’m fond of.
