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.

Cerveza color ámbar rojizo con aromas a maltas y notas dulces. De consistencia semi-espera. Al paladar se perciben notas a maltas tostadas con final acaramelado. Muy agradable cerveza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (2855) - DENMARK - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle received in the European trade, thanks Saeglopur. Clear chestnut brown with a medium sized beige head with good retention, lace and regeneration. Caramel, roasted malt, chocolate and dark fruits in the nose. Flavour follows. Caramel, brown sugar, dark dried fruits, syrup, molasses. Sweet with little bitterness, light warming alcohol. Ok, but a bit too sweet for my preference.

I’m going to say first off this was an 8 year old bottle from nachbar. Need fresher bottle.

imdownthepub (13207) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle, 330ml at Aux 12 Apotres, Strasbourg, France. Dark brown with cream head. Big fruity beer, toffee, fudge notes, some sweetness, some fruity alcohol, maybe a barley wine like hint. Nice and rounded in the close Pretty decent indeed.

wheresthepath (2115) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark brown with no head. Moderate prickly fizz and a bit sticky on the lips. Chocolate and muscavado sugar and roasty malt up front. Warming sherry-like alcohol grows with a slight woody bitterness, although it’s sweet overall. Chalk at the end with an unfortunate hint of cheap lager. Finishes less well than it starts, but still a decent beer.

Bottle, 33cl. Deep reddish with a frothy to minimal tan head. Aromas of dried fruits, roasted malts, alcohol. Robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Moderate to heavy sweet roasted character with moderate bitterness into a complex fruity and alcohol finish. Very pleasant.

Lore (2166) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 9, 2016
ruby to mahogany colour, moderate sized creamy yellowish-beige-ish head; aroma of caramel, biscuits, dried fruits like figs and raising, herbal and medicinal notes and spicy alcohol; taste is the same with syrupy sweetness; good, although not easily drinkable

rouhlas (2754) - GREECE - MAR 3, 2016
330 ml bottle. Dark cooper brown color with off white to light beige head. Malty aroma, light grainy notes in the beginning, caramel, light bready, fruity, dark dried fruits, light vinous, some chocolate notes when it gets warmer. Sweet and light bitter taste like aroma with some alcoholic notes addition. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation. It becomes quite good when it gets warmer and breaths for some time.

MonsterMagnet (1175) - 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.

33cl bottle. Pours a deep brown not much head. Smells of toffee and malt. Chewy malt, moderate mouthfeel. Pretty good.
