arepeejee (3) - , South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2008 does not count
Smallish head, but big on taste. Perhaps too drinkable. This beer was found in the DRAM SHOP, SHEFFIELD.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - APR 12, 2009
Dark red beer with a small head. The bottle was one month overdue and the beer showed already some aging. Caramel and chocolate flavour combined with some dark fruits.

Fin (7270) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2012
Think that I picked this bottle up from Getrenmarkt, Garmisch, Bavaria, Germany, consumed at home Sunday 28th July 2012 Pours ruby reddy coloured edging toward brown with an off-white head. Thick in the pour and in the mouth, toffee, caramel, smooth, sweet and big alcohol kick, this is the sort of German beer that Craig would totally approve of, it’s right uo his street.

Leighton (10515) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle shared with Elena, ever so discreetly, at the Vienna airport. Pours clear, copper-caramel with a fluffy, foamy off-white head. Rich toasty, bready caramel malt aroma. Strong and sweet flavor with lots of caramel, light toast, bread, some booze, slight leafy bitterness. Full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Warming finish with some boozy sting, caramel, slight dry and toasted malts, slight herbal and leafy bitterness. A heavy-duty beer overall. Very sweet but the alcohol definitely pokes through. Decent.

ThirstyBird (1482) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - 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.

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.
