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.

Bottle from a Prague beer shop. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin broken light tan head. The aroma is sweet malt, alcohol, liqourice. The flavour is strong sweet with a rich sweet caramel malt palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Super sweet and it totally dominates.

Fľaša 0,5 l doma. Sladkastá aróma, sušené ovocie - slivky, hustá hnedastá pena, tmavá jantárová farba. Chuť sladkastá, ovocie, karamel, pražená káva. Pivo má grády, ale alkohol je pekne zamaskovaný plnej v chuti.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2015 Bottle at Whole Foods - Dark Brown syrupy mess. Tastes like someone poured alcohol into a bottle of watered-down Ovaltine. Way too sweet. Bit of Roastyness there, too. Tasted more like a strangely sweet Imperial Stout than a Dopplebock.

Clear dark red brown. Aroma of dried plum and chocolate. Very sweet and unbalanced taste. Lots of alcohol in the aftertaste. Not round at all.

I really liked this beer, but then again, I tend to like very Doppelbock I drink. It was overly sweet and a bit unrefined but the flavors and aromas were good. Tasted and smelled of dark fruit, brown sugar and chocolate. The alcohol presence is certainly there.

chinchill (2774) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2015
.5L bottle served in a snifter. Looks as expected: clear, dark red-brown with a decent light tan head. Some spotty lacing. Sweet, boozy and malty aroma. Flavor: too sweet, even in the finish. Feel: medium+ body; sticky and syrupy, with medium-light carbonation.

mariuszek (393) - Gdynia, POLAND - JAN 19, 2015
Ruby color, perfect head. And the good things end with the appearance. Aroma is mix of roasty malt and caramel, plus awful smell of boiled rotten potatoes. Disgusting. Taste is Very sweet. Some alcohol at finish. Nice texture- like syrup, thick, but it IS syrup sweet. Dissapointment.
