YantarCoast (828) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUN 23, 2016
330ml bottle. Best before February 2016. Pours brown with a small light brown head. Aroma is dark fruits, lots of caramel, bread. Taste is caramel, raisins, malt. The 9% is very well disguised. Nice one.

Ritzn (199) - Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2016
Nice. Dried fruit (figs), chocolate, roast. A little too sweet but a perfect balance of bitterness. Medium body, creamy. All in all decent but I expected more complex aromas due to the high abv.

malrubius (2482) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle. Amber with head and lace. Earthy roasted caramel aroma. Very roasted burnt caramel with earthy grains and bitter roasted minerally finish. Medium full body oily. Way overly burnt and bitter. Extra points for being a lot more alcohol than I thought. Good.

maekchu (3304) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Thanks to KL. Dark sugary nose, sweet raisins, and small yeast notes. Clear copper/brown color. Initial burst of mild dark fruit, then a fizzy bot of balance, and a lingering sweetness in the finish. Thin-medium body. Nice enough, but somewhat restrained for a doppelbock.

KyotoLefty (8922) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from Oase. Nose of caramel, cherry, some chocolate, oranges. Pretty orange amber color. Very fruity flavor, oranges, nectarine, caramel. A bit thin. Decent but did not live up to expectations. Punches below its weight.

Jonb5 (491) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
330ml bottle, poured into LaChouffe chalice. A: Bronze, mahogany, ruby, clear, small tanned head which faded quickly without leaving much lacing. S: Initial cherry and cough mixture was replaced by strong diacetyl and chocolate which was reminiscent of Cadbury’s milk chocolate. T: More dark rather than milk chocolate, hints of sourness, molasses, slightly boozy burn at the finish, but didn’t match the depth of other Dopplebocks. M: Oily texture, slightly thick texture, minimal carbonation. O: At 9% this is one to treat with respect, but I felt it offered less than other examples of the style.

ThirstyBird (2530) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Pours a clear mohogany color with light tan head. The smell is toasted malt, spice, earthy. Sweet toasted malt, sweet light malt, spice, fruit ending a bit dry. Light/medium body with mild carbonation.
