anstei (1226) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. A slightly smoky, slightly spicy and meaty Doppelbock. Highly drinkable, very enjoyable, but not incredibly deep.

SinH4 (3174) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2015
Amber color with rather small tan head that goes down quickly. Aroma is sweet caramel, some old world hops and "dusty cellar" bottom-fermentation aromas. Also hints of plums and figs. Taste is more caramel and plums, very "lieblich" - it’s light, but still has a good amount of flavour. Incredibly easy to drink. It feels way too light for 8%

motelpogo (7705) - 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
