Dark brown color with small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, a bit like pear as well. Taste is medium sweet and alcoholic. Medium body, oily testure, avarage carbonation. May be a bit too sweet and alcoholic...

Bottle. Pours clear very dark brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, dried fruit, caramel and alcohol. Sweetish, malty and caramellish taste, offset by bitter roasty and hoppy notes. Sweet but not unpleasant aftertaste. Potent. Rich. Decent.

A nice finger of tan head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is a blunted roasted malt and mild chocolate. A bit weird.
The taste is rich and sweet and sweeter. Wow.
The texture is sticky with low carbonation and medium body.
The super sweet taste was tough to handle and the aroma was interesting.

Very strong aroma of alcohol with a slight hint of roastyness in the back. Taste is very sweet, but the alcohol isn’t as overwhelming as in the aroma. Aftertaste has a nice short finish, but leaves the beer fairly balanced.

Some serious toffee and dried fruit tastes in this flat Czech beer. Really glad I was gifted it although I’d kept it refrigerated for nearly a year before I found out it was just over 10% rather than 24%. Take it between meals to fend off hunger for tea for another hour or two. I see others are describing it as over-the-top on here, but it’s acceptable as any strong beer can be for me. And by that I mean it’s brilliant.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2013 I assume, due to the high alcohol content, this beer is too sweet for me...it would be much better if it was a bit ’conservative’.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Dark brown, small head. Aroma is caramel and lots of fruit that seem to be on the edge between overripe and dried. Raisins, dates, figs, plums. Also, a pronounced (hazel)nuttiness, plus some alcohol. Likeable smell. Unfortunately, the taste is far too alcoholic and cloyingly sweet. Oily, heavy body, lots of alcohol fumes retronasal. Good quality German-style doppelbock but the style doesn’t suit my taste.
