Tap. Opaque, brown body with red/orange hue. Small ring of a head, stays a ring, and doesn’t lace. Look is OK, but the aroma is lovely. Dark fruits, dark malts, some estery yeasty fruitiness, and a generally rich and delicious aroma. Body is awesome. Velvety carbonation, fullish, not at all sticky with a great finish. Fantastic. Flavor is a continuation of the aroma, fairly malty, but not really sweet. A dark, fruity monster of a bock and it’s tastily complex and lovely.

Piwo pięknie pachnące wisniowka, czerwonym winem i leśnymi owocami. W smaku sliwka wegierka, trochę nut cherry, alkohol obecny ale szlachetny, rozgrzewający i o długim finiszu. Karmel czekolada i wanillia. Troche zbyt słodkawe ale ogolnie wielka przyjemność z degustacji tego degustacyjnego piwa.

mgajdaczewa (1427) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 9, 2016
W aromacie karmel, ale i sporo nut quasi belgijskich, suszonych owoców, cukru kandyzowanego, tak jakby piwo było refermentowane po belgijsku. W smaku stosunkowo wytrawne, leciutko alkoholowe, szlachetne nuty karmelu i czekolady z orzechami. Mało intensywny w smaku, za to bardzo pijalny. Mimo bardzo quadowego aromatu charakter doppelbocka został zachowany. Bardzo dobre piwo!

rusos (476) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown colour. Stable head. Complex aroma, rum, mollasses, tobaco, nuts, some roasty tones. Taste is quite the same, sweet, plus a lot of alcohol in taste (decreases the drinkability), roasted bitterness towards the end. Good one.
