Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel/molasses, nuts/shells ,bread), with a note of brown sugar. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. A fair enough rendition but pretty generic and mild. Quiet aroma is just malt and sugars. Sweet in the mouth, and surprisingly modest in body. Pretty watery. Very difficult to get excited about it...doesn’t really do anything wrong, but seems kinda phoned-in.

MichaelAwesome (5167) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 15, 2013
Endlich mal etwas rosinenlastige Abwechslung, die mit einem gewissen Süße und nur wenig Alkohol im Aroma zu punkten weiß. Selten solch ein großes Böckchen gezischt. Toll.

McTapps (5170) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 14, 2013
Deep dark brown colour with low head and smooth body, Nose of intense malt. Taste of rich malt, dark nuts, torf, burnt caramel, medium bitter hops, ripe grains and brown bread. This beer is really easy and nice to drink and it doesn’t have that much of a Doppelbock-feeling (you don’t really taste the strong alcohol). Nice and solid Doppelbock.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 1, 2013
Aroma complesso, zuccherino, fruttato. Marroncina con un bel cappello di schiuma. Al palato ingresso dolce dominato dai malti, molto complessa ma elegantissima. Sentori di prugna, mou, e frutta secca. Chiude in maniera splendida con una leggerissima luppolatura. Calda, buona, equilibrata. Da bere a litri.

Dorqui (2125) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 15, 2013
Bottled 0,50L. Dark reddish color, impenetrable with a long duration bubbly aspect. Optimal foamy head. Much complex and round nose; notes of roast malty, mighty alcoholic, caramel. Medium prickly taste, little overbanding alcoholic perception with a good bitternes final with notes of liqueur and hop.

Grzesiek79 (3392) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Dobry i treściwy doppelbock. Ciemny, machoniowy kolor i kremowa piana. W smaku rozgrzewa w zimowe wieczory, bardzo aromatyczne i smaczne piwo. Polecam

kiwianer (3427) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 28, 2012
The head is ok, the body brown. It smells sweet, maltaromatic, creamy-sirup. The taste is malty, maltaromatic, darkmalty, sirup, sweet, a bit alcoholic. Overall intensive and tasty. 11/11/11/11/11/11

zimbo (655) - SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2012
Consisten level smooth quarter inch head on top of a very dark brown (with an orangy crystal sparkle) body. Dry nose, slightly carbonic to start that takes time to open. Could really do with more richness and dimension though considering what it promises. Another doppelbock with that hard tannic quality which imprisons all that sweet morish juiciness.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2012
A clear light brown colored beer, with a small beige head. The aroma of dark fruits, prune and raisins, a little spices and malty notes. The taste of fruits like prunes, cherries with some spices hops and dark malt. The aftertaste is sweet, with bitter and hints of spices.

500 ml bottle. Heavy beer with a bitter aftertaste and yet somehow mild. Not bad.
