foxo82 (765) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, - SEP 7, 2012
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...

Saeglopur (716) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 1, 2015
500 ml bottle, one year old.
Dark copper/brown body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of dried fruits, caramel, bread, smoke.
Taste is quite sweet, but interesing, with caramel, dried fruits, berries, tea, some bread, some hops.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes sweet malty, a bit sticky, but also a bit roasty and hoppy.

Nice one. A bit too sweet for my liking, but still with a multifarious taste, that has some notes you wouldn’t expect. Overall nothing outstanding, but a very good, recognisable Doppelbock.

From the bottle. Not very much aroma, malty and sweet, but not much aftertaste. Could be better!

Skinnyviking (7501) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2015

lello4ever (196) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Il colore è marrone scuro, con una schiuma compatta e persistente anch’essa tendente al marrone. Ottimi l’aroma di malto tostato e caffè. Al gusto, nonostante abbia oltre 7%, si mantiene bevibilissima, forse perché appena secca dato il sentore di tostatura e caramello. In conclusione una doppelbock niente male, specialmente considerando il produttore industriale.

gieldekoning (30) - Gemert, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2015
Kräftig aber dünn und wasserig am Anfang. Was Malz mit Jodium und Lakritze. Schöne dunklen Farbe

jamestulloch (1849) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear chestnut body with a medium beige head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of Marmite, rust, stewed tea and treacle. Flavour caramel, salted nuts and a peppery, alcohol burn. Medium body with an oily texture. A bit too heavy and peppery for my liking and the alcohol is far from hidden.

bonkiedeaap (384) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer has a ruby red to dark brown color and a nice cream colored, with also livingly Co2 content. The aroma is fruity and malty, with sweet tones of dark fruits and caramel. But also roasted malts and a little yeast are noticable in the background. The taste light sweet with tones from the aroma, to change into a pleasant malty bitterness. The finish is warming and a little bitter. Very nice brew.

Diabobale (271) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una doppelbock molto ben equilibrata. Colore eburneo alla vista, schiuma nocciola fine, sentori di liquirizia e cioccolato al naso, biscotto, caramello e torstato al palato. Corpo ben strutturato, ma leggera nella bevibilità

Baalzevuv (68) - Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2014
Barwa rubinowa, klarowna, delikatne bąbelki gazu. Piana lekko beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, gęsta i trwała, średnio obfita. Aromat słodowy, zdecydowanie przeważa nuta palonego słodu. Gdzieś z tyłu wyczuwalny karmel. W smaku bardzo słodowe, zdecydowanie palony słód, lekka gorycz, ale nie chmielowa. Czuć alkohol. Piwo zdecydowanie do degustacji, choć stosunkowo pijalne. Odczucie w ustach rozkłada się na cały język, po bokach utrzymuje się dłużej, w szczególności pieści policzki. Na języku szerokie. Goryczka zalegająca, pod koniec trochę zbyt kwaśno.
