From bottle, aged at least a year. Deep mahogany colour like a stout but lacking the smooth head. Lovely head nonetheless. Wonderful rich fruity aroma. Bourbon soaked raisins, some chocolate, red wine, grapes, butter. Flavor is big and boozy, warm and lingering. Thick malts with a smooth well balanced bitterness. Rumtopf anyone? Chocolate covered raisins. Lots of fun to drink, plenty going on. Smooth mouthfeel and delightful lingering notes without a sticky palate.

love the bottle design, brown in colour, brown sugar aroma’s , tastes brown .. just joking, tastes of coffee and sweet malt. sweet aftertaste/linger but the bitters of the coffee we’re much better than sleep over.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2013
750ml bottle: pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a small creamy froth of light tan head. Has a sweet toasted dark caramel malty nose with some dark fruits and a touch of doughy yeast. Starts with pretty goodfullness and light carbonation with sweet dark malts, some light oxidation and toffee with some plums and bready yeast. Finishes sweet and slightly warming. Pretty true to style and complex.

Wow, that is excellent. Dark coffee and brown sugar. Brandy soaked figs and dates with a nice raisin sweetness. Bitter chocolate burnt toast. There is a alcohol finish but it isn’t off putting it actually helps and enhances.

Theydon_Bois (9116) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle at JF’s, BOE, 07/03/13. Hazed dark chestnut brown with a thin beige head that dissipates to the edge and leaves a film. Nose is dark malt, dark toffee, brown sugars, booze, some background hops. Taste comprises dark toffee, light chocolate, hint of orange, booze, some hops. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sweet boozey finish. Great stuff, hoppy backnotes, boozey but well disguised for 11% !

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
750 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours deep chestnut with a moderate, dense tan head. The head mostly remains and leaves a moderate amount of loose lace. On the nose, there are notes of brown sugar, molasses, dark fruit and dark chocolate, along with herbal hops, and a hint of ginger spice. The flavour begins moderately sweet with molasses and brown sugar, nutty malts and a hint of chocolate. Espresso and spicy ginger enter in the middle along as the hops pick up. It becomes spicier towards the finish, which is also somewhat bitter. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a huge doppelbock with a spicy, herby quality and a big boozy presence. It grew on me as it warmed, and its complexity started to come through. A nice brew that will be interesting to try after some ageing. 2012-07-05

Tasted blind. Deep brown with a light tan head. Nose is caramel sweet malt, butterscotch, and just—maltiness. Taste has a bit of smokiness to it—sweet and caramelly with the smoke, medium roast, and a bit of booze. Thinnish body with a decent amount of carbonation.

AlexanderJanku (110) - Randers, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2013
70 cl. bottle @ home. Pours a dark brown colour with beige 1 finger head. The aroma is malty, notes of chocolate, caramel and coffee-like. some berries (like cherries in madeira) the taste is full bodied with malty flavours. some ripe fruits, some hoppiness and a slight hint of alcohol. Not a "trippelbock", but still a decent beer.
