aleigator (605) - GERMANY - FEB 13, 2016
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.

Beerkenstock (94) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2016
Eye: pours a nice clear brown, coke like color with a medium thick and not too quickly dissipating beige head and medium to strong carbonation. Nose: malts, dark dried fruits such as prunes, prune juice Mouth: prune juice again, Rimuss, pleasant carbonation and tickling on the tongue Palate: roasted nuts, chocolate and coffee malts Overall: not too sweet and not too much alcohol, nice mix between sweetness and bitterness, almost porter like! otherwise not as complex as I thought it would be though.

VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
On tap at Munich brewpub. A clear orange-tinted brown with a resilient beige head. Aroma is overripe dark fruit, roast and hazelnut. Flavor is overripe fruit, roast, coffee and hazelnut. Finish is loads of coffee, lots of herbs, and, unfortunately, lots and lots of booze. Too much booze. Would be a GREAT beer without that excessive touch... Medium to full body, weak to average carbonation.

Schlumpfhunter (77) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2015
Farbe: fast so schwarz wie Guiness Schaum: wenigNase: etwas derb dunkel malzig.Geschmack: ziemlich sauer auf der Zunge, das hält auch etwas an. Der eigentliche Geschmack ist dann aber breiter Malz, leichte Röstaromen, insgesamt aber eher süß, angerauchter Honig ;-) Das bleibt dann so auch als Nachgeschmack.Das Bier ist ziemlich schwer, ok ist ja auch ein Doppelbock.Ist nicht ganz meins, aber nur weil ich nicht auf dunkle Böcke stehe, dafür ein gutes Bier.
