Jonb5 (343) - 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.

(Flasche)Es hat eine kastanienbraune bis rubinrote Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer kurzlebigen bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist schwer, viel Karamell, Malz, Röstnoten und vllt etwas Schattenmorelle. Der Geschmack ist schlanker und röstiger als erwartet, etwas sirupartige Süße und retronasal Karamellig und Brombeerig. Die Bittere ist nicht zu schwach, scheint aber hauptsächlich vom röstmalz zu kommen. Im Nachgeschmack bemerkt man dann doch den Alkohol.

travita (3857) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The taste is sweet, bread like, with caramel is not bad. The smell is just about the same. The look is brownish in color and has a small beige colored head.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2013
330ml bottle from Arden Wines. Steady-fizzing ruby capped with beige. Sweet toffee, prune, Dolly Mixtures and muscovado nose. Meat stock hints; Allsorts, cocktail cherry, prune, juicy sultana, muscovado flavour; heavy and sweet but the booze takes a backseat. Surreptitiously powerful with the brown sugar and dried fruit sweetness to cleave your head cleanly from your shoulders when you’re least expecting it. Good sessions beer.

graziano85 (294) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 6, 2013
Brown/red colour with beige head. Bready smell, but not really a strong smell. Some herbal taste, roasted notes, and a good bitterness, that last long. Full-bodied. Not bad.

sankara (31) - Pisa, ITALY - MAR 24, 2013
Una doppelbock decisa. Marrone e con poca schiuma, entra dolce, con predominanza di caramello, ma esce piuttosto amara, con sentori di tostato. Questa dissonanza dolce/amaro caratterizza questa birra e la rende particolare, in un panorama di bock che, diciamo la verità, si somigliano un po’ tutte. I gradi alcolici si sentono ma non dispiacciono, il finale poi, è persistente. Per me una sorpresa, buona. ---- A doppelbock decided. Brown with little foam, enters sweet, with a predominance of caramel, but comes rather bitter, with hints of toast. This dissonance sweet / bitter characterizes this beer and makes it special, in a landscape of bock which, let’s face it, you look a bit ’all. The alcoholic feel, but do not mind the final then, is persistent. A surprise for me, good.
