Ferris (5233) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle - Vintage 2010 - Dark malts and cocoa, like a malt teaser. Clear amber with a no head. Very light malt, cocoa and hints of caramel. So light and easy drinking, no sense of alcohol and a breadth of balanced flavours. Very nice.

CapFlu (4651) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2015
Courtesy of Ferris. Pours a headless and copper brown body. Nose of apricots and maple. Very smooth and dangerously drinkable for a 14%. Highly whiskey barrel roasted malt and vanilla stick. Crazy tasty.

Percy0103 (228) - MEXICO - DEC 31, 2014
Reviewed on 14/12/14. Bottle, 750ml, 2013 edition. A mahogany beer with a medium to small white head. Aroma is of chestnuts, alcohol, wood, jamaica and sweets. Bittersweet taste. Faint carbonation and considerable astringency. Very sweet finish. Not very drinkable and gets out of control at the end. Maybe in a small portion is ok.

Sdaniel90 (437) - Mexico City, MEXICO - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. 2013 edition. Deep reddish copper with a minimal white head. Sweet, roasted aroma of caramel, dried fruits, firewood, toffee and alcohol. Extra sweet and sticky, with moderate carbonation. Over the top sweetness. Strong brown sugar and caramel character, with little to no bitterness. Alcohol is well masked for 14%, but still comes across strong in the finish, as well as an overwhelming sweetness. A magnificently complex and well brewed German Strong Lager, but the heavy sweetness makes it near undrinkable. Seems almost like a digestive licor.

DocLock (8086) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Pours hazy copper with fizzy off-white head. Nose is rich and boozy, with caramel, oaky bourbon, molasses. Tastes very dense, sweet, caramelly, oaky, with notes of heavy wood, rum, and bourbon. Dense finish that gets hotter as it warms.

Heavy alchohol but great doppelbock beer. Serve child but not ice cold. 12 ounces is enough.

cmacklin (317) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
750 ml bottle. (2012 edition) Pours a clear maroon colour with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of ripe fruit, caramel, wood and alcohol. Flavour is very sweet with notes of dark fruit, caramel, spices, vanilla and wood with a warming alcohol finish. Medium to full body with a sticky, oily texture and soft carbonation. Very sophisticated, reminds me of a cognac.

motelpogo (7054) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 31, 2014
one litre bottle at baerwaldt’s xmas tasting, thanks chris! my notes refer to it as the ’white beard edition’. woody amber with next to no head; aroma of soggy sultanas, trail mix; still relatively sweet with traces of vanilla essence, williams schnapps and toffee; sticky but not cloying, instead warming and invigorating

Bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringe Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr süß malzig, holzig, sehr reife Früchte, so ist auch der Geschmack.
