foxo82 (709) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, - 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...

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 (241) - 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 (37) - - 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.

Alengrin (2431) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Classic Doppelbock with thin head and dark brown colour. Caramel malts, candi sugar, toasted accent ensuring a gentle bitter finish, soft and smooth mouthfeel. Good example of its style but not quite the quality of Ayinger Celebrator or Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Tap. Light to moderate toasted cereal for the malt, light candied orange for the hops, light to moderate dough for the yeast, with hints of raisin and cola. Head is average size, frothy, light tan with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts light to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finisheslightly acidic and bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, syrupy, with a soft to lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic and sticky finish. Thick and rich, and a bit sweeter than other traditional Doppelbocks.
