Koelschtrinker (16429) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Ausgeglichen kernig-malziger sowie leicht hopfiger Antrunk. Die Malzigkeit scheint sich im Mittelteil kurz ungebremst zu entfalten, ebbt dann aber wieder auf ein Normalmaß ab. Eine leicht säuerliche Note bringt Frische ins Bier. Dezent röstig, hier wirkt dies noch etwas unausgereift, erst im Abgang wird die Note vollmundig und so auch zum nun würzigeren Malz. Zuletzt bilden sich Kaffee-Nuancen. Trotz ansprechender Intensität ein frischer Bock. 12/10//10/11/10//10

yngwie (16423) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle. It pours a clear, amber-brown body under a beige head. Chocolate and caramel, dried fruits and some faint notes of licorice, as well as a tiny spiced touch in the aroma. The flavor has icorice, chocolate, caramel, sweetness, and something unidentified tasting strange but nice. Long sweet finish. Full-bodied. A nice one. (081031)

The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Tastes only modest malty, more hoppy. Unusual doppelbock, but not bad!

MiP (15183) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle, 7.6%. Weak bready aroma. The flavour is also bready, slightly sweet with a hint of liquorice and dark malts. The sweetness reminds me of malt syrup.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Courtesy of MoritzF. Pours a clear, orangey brown with an off-white head. Sweetish malty, somewhat nutty nose. Very full-bodied with lots of roasted malt and sweetish, dried fruits. Almost no bitterness. Very classical and pleasant Doppelbock, 230807

asheft (2924) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2007
Candylike almost Belgian doppel-ish aroma with a tiny banana esteriness that is overshadowed by a grainy, pumpernickel, sorghum molasses. A healthy dose of noble hops is apparent, probably pushing the balance envelope a bit. Very dark, garnetish brown, covered by a lacy, tawny, flanel. Fairly gentle melanoidins that include that pumpernickel/molasses flavour in front of curiously potent hops, ending in a citrusy blast that plays off the medium carbonation. As the beer warms, the ethanol flavour becomes more apparent. Medium body-not quite enough-but not out of balance on account of the modest sweetness. Not too balsy, but quite drinkable stuff.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2006
Abit on the sweet side, that´s ok, but I´d prefer a less sweet flavor, maybe abit more roasted malts, slightly less alcohol. Still a good beer though. Thanks to MoritzF for the bottle.

bierkoning (12185) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2006
Roasted malt and espresso in the aroma. Full bodied. Malty flavor. Roast, chestnuts. Certainly not sweet, but with a rather refined bitterness in the aftertaste. Well made and quite likeable doppelbock. Bottle from MoritzF, with my thanks for this hard to find gem!

logtaads (4) - USA - FEB 5, 2006 does not count
Great bock beer if that is what you are in to. When I was younger I liked bock quite a bit, but now I find them too malty and sweet.
