Bottle from Trafalgar Wines, Brighton. Looks great - as you would expect from a Munchner special; reddish brown, like a beaver (the four legged kind) submerged in cherry cola. Rich, delicious aroma of Lyle’s golden syrup cake and chicken satay mixed with honey and sultanas. Seriously. Taste is initially strongly honey, syrup and ginger but settles down, avoiding being too sweet as the bittersweet malt aftertaste comes through. There’s definitely some lemon juice and Benylin in there too. The one downside was that it felt a bit thin and watery but with a taste like this I didn’t mind too much. A triumph indeed - and my first 4+ score in 50 beers. It’s been a long time...

0.5l bottle. Dark ruby body, thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, toast, orange zest and floral hops. Taste of caramel, toast, chocolate, orange zest, some berries and floral hops. One of the sweeter and less roasty doppelbocks. I like it a lot.

München flaska vad mu affären hette.Russin och plommon arom. Fin färg och lacing. Fint balanserad sötma mot den humle som finns. Inget vattnigt hål. Inte ett uns av alkoho6. Löwenbraus bästa ? Jaa siche:-)r

erickok (5395) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2016
Brian body, beige head. Brown bread, pound cake, bay leaves, bit dusty. Totally in style and while the clean fermentation makes it a little dull, it’s quality stuff. Tasty malty body, very pleasant alcohol warmth. Not sharp or nasal at all, which i like. Generally I would prefer more sweetness but from now and then a good bock is very much appreciated, and this a good one. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

UjoKlobasa (628) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle. Almost black color, tan head. Smell of chocolate. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, roasted malt. Heavy sweet, light bitter. Not bad, but it actually tastes more like cocoa then beer.

Donker met beige kraag. Licht rokerige smaak met suikersmaak en wat bananen, licht tintelend door aardige CO2 inhoud. Aroma is meer warm kruidig zoet. Dat allemaal op zijn Duits. Van de tap @ Löwenbrau Baden Baden

Pours an almost black color with red hints to it, while holding the beer against the light, together with a big, fluffy white head. Smells of earth infused, spicy licorice, soothed by toffee and raisins. Has a lower carbonation, resulting in a very soft mouthfeel, which turns out to be a tad fuller than your usual Bock. Tastes of toffee, wood bark, dried earth and rock sugar from the beginning, with spices joining in. The beer’s spiciness creates a peppery bite, mellowed by the overall smoothness, opening up the palate to raisins and glazed caramel. After the swallow the established sweetness finds its counterpart in an earth supported dryness, almost reminding of cold pressed coffee beans, due to the use of a prominent, utmost spicy earth quality and warming alcohol, creating an awesome balance till the end. This convinces for creating a fantastic and ever evolving depth of flavors, highlighting typical Doppelbock qualities, together with a unique, spicy twist.
