Bottle thanks to Blake. Black body with a big tan foamy tan head tha leaves good thick lacing. Very strong "burnt" aroma. Coal with sweet dark bread. Dark rummy flavor with brown sugar and black malt. Lingering tangy sweet finish. The sweetness is overpowering.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Dark brown color, with crimson edges, small, soon evaporating head. Sweet nose, with complexities unfolding as it opens...toffee and caramel, maple, nuts, and anise...molasses...and a whiff of alcoholic heat...nice... Smooth entrance in the mouth, soft and untroubling. Thick malt, solid flavor, full bodied. Slick, sweet, delicious...the alcohol isn’t detected in the taste, not yet atleast...getting thicker and richer on the palate, feeling a bit of port wine mixed with dark rum. Recommended. A nice little doppelbock, probably my first from the Czech Republic, and a sweet surprise.

Bottle - thank you Dortmunder!
Attractive dark crimson colour, creamy brown head. Sirupy and honeyish aroma - has a bit of mead in there. Very sweet base flavour, sugar, honey, caramel, but also sweet fruits, a light herbal edge. Fat sirupy mouthfeel, sweet aftertaste. Too sweet as it is, but probably a good desert beer - I wonder how it would develop after cellaring it a couple of years.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2005
(bottle) Dark brown colour with medium frothy beige head. Sugary malty aroma. Initially very sweet malts, taste of roasted malts and dried fruits and a syrupy finish.

pivnizub (9000) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2005
Bottle: very dark, reddish brown, thin, lasting reddish brown head, big nose (caramel, liquorice), quite alcoholic with a tinge of port-wine, also hints of roasted malts and coffeee; quite sweet start, a bit sticky, fruity(plums)-malty taste and also a short fruity aftertaste, nearly no bitterness; lacks the hoppiness in the short finish, unharmonic, not well balanced, boring !

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2005
Deep brown, nearly black in appearance with a tan, creamy and small dense head. Aroma is pretty bad - whisky, molasses and allspice come to mind. Flavor is sweet and cloying; heavy emphasis of molasses seems to be intended to mask the high ABV, which it does well, but then it ruins any sense of balance that the beer could hope to attain. Thick, like a port laced with molasses and chocolate malts. Apple cider vinegar like aftertaste, with some roasted malts coming through on the back end. Too sweet and very cloying. Boo.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2005
Bottled. Dakr ruby red colour. Medium head. Chocolate, caramelly nose. Molasses and chocolate in the taste, otherwise terribly sweet. I could detect no bitterness, just sweetness. Some of the flavours are interesting, but they all get buried in a cloying, sugary sweetness.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Huge vanilla creme and praline malt with a wonderful light roast cocoa nose that leaves you wanting more.

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Metallic powder bitterness atop mild hops and roasted malt and molasses. Sweet biscuits and some coffee. Dark brown black clear with thin tan head. Medium thick body, not quite oily, with light carbonation. Starts syrupy sweet, with roasted malt, molasses and brown sugar. Alcohol warming and mild carbonic acidity. Light hops sourness in the finish with molasses and biscuit after. Not quite cloying but close.

Doppelbock? Okay, if you say so. But this was a lackluster, watery, one-dimensional (bad) beer. My ratings are generous.
