Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2014
Flaske (gave fra Petro) delt med Ovesen pĺ Holmens aktivitetsdag feb-14: jeg ĺpner flasken og transporteres umiddelbart til Karamelleriet og The Coffee Collective i Jćgersborggade. Smaken drar meg ogsĺ dit, og det er ikke alltid at for mye av det gode er vidunderlig, men du verden - dette er snop for en som liker portvin og engelsk fruktkake. Vinkelhastigheten er foruroligende godt skjult. Beware! Kjenner tydelig at inspirasjonsnivĺet stiger.

fourstrings (56) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 16, 2013
Dark colour with white head. Soft carbonation.Sherry, dark chocolate and a hint of coffee in the aroma. It is very sweet almost too sweet to drink. There is also alcohol feeling on the back of a throat which is not that weird considering its ABV. I would say it is a liquid dessert worth trying.

mgajdaczewa (500) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Słodkie! Za słodkie! W aromacie jeszcze jest stosunkowo nieźle, wyraźny karmel, ale i tam słodycz jest dość wyraźnie zaznaczona. W smaku za to już przytłacza i tłamsi, czyniąc piwo bardzo ciężko pijalnym. Są nuty karmelowe, lekko czekoladowo - kakaowe, ale to wszystko ekstremalnie posłodzone. Do tego szybko "kopie". Słabiutko.

Deep, dark amber with full head that lingers with great lacing. If there is too sweet its almost there, still a light sorta thin body with an alcoholic overtone

Argonian (278) - Athens, GREECE - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark body, with a large white head that diminishes slowly, leaving a good lace. Aroma of roasted malts, notes of raisins(I think). Amazing taste, warming alcohol, caramel, very sweet, but definately not cloying sweet, like a cognac I think. Oily texture, almost full bodied, low to average carbonation level. Perfect for the winter.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Primator Double Bock, 16.9floz/500ml bottle into a Samuel Adams glass; served cold. Aroma: Malty, boozy. Chocolate and caramel. Sherry. Appearance: Near opaque dark ruby body with a creamy, tan head. Taste: Oooooooooooh yeah, good and boozy; there’s no subtlety here. Tastes like a nice oloroso sherry. So much caramel flavor. It’s almost identical to Samichlaus, but more malty and less sweet. Palate: So rich and smooth. A nice warming, boozy finish. Overall: At work I have walked right by this beer for months. SO MUCH WASTED TIME. This is a truly fantastic doppelbock.

Recenzja 30 lipca 2011 Koszmarnie słodkie, w smaku i zapachu dominuje niemal wyłącznie nuta alkoholowa (cała reszta jest ledwo wyczuwalna)

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, molasses, fruit (mostly grapes), faint roast, and alcohol. The alcohol becomes more noticeable as it warms. It pours a dark brown with some orange transparency when held to the light. It has a two finger tan head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy sweet brown sugar, lighter molasses, chocolate, and caramel. The finish has sweet fruit, light apple, and just a hint of roast. There’s a touch of alcohol there, but it’s mostly covered up by the sweetness. It’s full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, it’s sweet...real sweet. I generally don’t like beers this sweet, but for some reason this works for me.
