Bottle shared by Skyview. I am disappointed to see this brewery is out of business, because thi was a great beer. The aroma starts with red meat and caramel. Dark brown appearance and low carbonation. Caramel in the flavor again. Thick and rich palate, with a lightly sweet finish. One of the better doppelbocks I have ever had.

[Bottle] shared by skyview. Thanks! Pours clear brown with a dissipating frothy brown head. Aroma is toffee, molasses, brown sugar, fig, and light chocolate. Flavor is nice and malty, brown sugar, light oxidation, toffee. Fairly sweet, lightly oxidized finish. Very underrated beer.

Koelschtrinker (15588) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Mehrere Malztöne erfreuen im Antrunk, leider ist hier auch ein alkoholischer Teil präsent. Nun gut, bei 8,9% verständlich, trotzdem. Im Mittelteil deutlich alkoholischer, das Malz mischt sich währenddessen mit einer getreidigen Note. Der Alkohol legt im Abgang nochmals zu, daher gerät die Würzigkeit in der Untergrund. Süffiger Doppelbock, trotz des Alkohols. Danke an Jevers Zeuge Test vom 8.11.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,11,10,12,10 - 10,15

0.5L swing-top bottle. A clear orangey-golden body, topped by a layer of tiny tan bubbles. A scent of alcohol up front, not really disturbing. Then a fat malt aroma reveals, raisiny, light caramelly, and quite sweet. Strong malt body. Sweetness from the malts and from the alcohol. Notes of dark dried fruits and caramel. Chewy texture. More than medium full. Alcohol warmth in the finish.

Rune (10503) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2009
500ml bottle shared with Richard. Deep, dark orange body colour. Small, off-white head. Aromatic with sweet hoppy fruits and slightly roasted malts. Dried, dark fruits in flavour, including raisin and prunes, overlaid by dark malts. Strong and mouth filling palate. Relatively integrated alcohol (hotel room, Berlin 21.11.2009).

Boutip (5581) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle: Poured a light amber color bock with a rather large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of sugar and light cardboard notes which may indicates some oxidation. Taste is not what I would have expected for the style with medium malt presence with a light toffee sugary finish. Ester are not really discernible with good carbonation and minimal alcohol appearance. Not really good for the style.

Enjoyit (3715) - Vadum, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2009
Clear amber of color with a beige head. An aroma of sweets, malt and fruits. A flavor of syrup, malt and sweets.
