Bottle. Medium brown body, surprisingly transparent for a doppelbock. Sweet and alcoholic in the nose, with some distracting metallic notes. Taste would be nicely balanced between butterscotch / sugarlike sweetness and intense, hoppy bitterness; but the alcohol is way too strong for this beer - suppresses the correct flavour escalation.

MonsterMagnet (849) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle from secret santa Saeglopur, many thanks! Pours deep mahogany brown. Aroma is malty with toffee and dark fruit. Taste follows with nuts, brown sugar, a light earthiness, sweet berries, bit of wood and slightly vinous. Sweet, but not overly sweet, oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation. Very good complex doppelbock.

allmyvinyl (7724) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 21, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours dark brown with a thick bubbly, cola-esque head, and just as short-lived. Aromas of toffee, not much else. Taste is more toffee, caramel. Sweet finish.

VsXsV (3640) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2015
Bottle, thanks Werckmeister! Clear very dark brown liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of raw sugar, chocolate, licorice, red berries, pumpernickel, light ash, dried fruit and toast. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of raw sugar, dried fruit, light roasted malt and light toast. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Unnecessarily high carbonation. Otherwise, pretty nice!

bulldogops (1680) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2015
Rating #1272 - Rich blackbrown pour with a creamy tan head that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is roast malts, hint of chocolate and weak coffee, mild nuttiness (almond). Mild carbonation, medium-heavy alcohol warmth, little yeasty whiff as well. Palate is more malt character, nutty, chocolatey, quite bitter. Decent hoppiness - cool smokiness (almost peaty) on the finish.

RW80 (1644) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2015
33cl bottle thanks to Saeglopur, (Eurio secretsummer santa 2015) Appearance: nice deep mahogany beer with beige foam that quickly falls to a flimsy layer. Aroma: light malts, hint of fruits. Weak aroma. Taste:. Sweet Alcohol boozy upfront but mallowing out in a rich malt bouquet (roasted, caramelised malts), dark fruits kicking in and some sour notes, Then alcohol comes back and warms things out with some light coffee bitter tones finishing it off. medium body, below average carbonation. Nice rollercoaster ride with a few tricks you don’t expect in the palate allthough not perfect still a beer I would highley recommend as it does things in respect of the style, but with a nice twist.

Fukito (991) - Santiago, CHILE - SEP 26, 2015
Pours a clear dark copper with ruby hues and a small but lasting white head. Aroma is plums, figs and some molasses. Flavor is same plums with burnt caramel and treacle notes. Nice bittersweet dark crystal aftertaste. Medium to heavy palate, warming and not overly boozy.

Erzengel (6723) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2015
Malty thick beginning. Malt, dark sugar, great dark think. The alcohol is not tasteable. Burned sugar, not too bitter, slightly sweetish and easy to drink. Hints of roast, burned sugar with not much bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit dry-malty bitter from the malt. Very nice!
