Percy0103 (583) - MEXICO - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle, 330ml. A clear orange-amber beer with almost no head. Aroma is of caramel, cognac, peaches, alcohol and a hint of wood. Taste is bitter with a strong alcoholic finish. Kind of reminds me cognac. Rich and heavy, with a strong malt character. Not very drinkable at all, but well-balance. Feels like the ABV is higher than it really is.

bartholos (220) - GERMANY - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle. Pours straw colored, clear with a rocky white head. Strong unpleasant metallic smell, light fruity notes of grapes and slightly biting alcoholic hint. Sweetish taste that is balanced by a light bitterness. The body is full and thick with high carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. There is a quite noticeable alcoholic warmth. The flavor is also dominated by the alcohol with some notes grapes, caramel and some floral hints. Leaves a medium strong aftertaste that is pleasently sweet and slightly fruity.

Bei der Flasche hätte ich irgendwie einen dunklen Bock erwartet aber wurde dann eines besseren belehrt. Die farbe ist. Vollgold und glasklar. Der schaum ist feinporig aber leider nicht von sonderlicher dauer. Im aroma kommen Ananas Pfirsich sogar ein paar Gebirgskräuter und Weißwein, leider hängt alles unter einer Schnapsschicht. Geschmacklich ist es sehr weich und trotz des hohen Alkoholgehalts nicht zu stark. Hier ist ein feines spiel aus hellen früchten, etwa Honig und einer feinen herbe zu schmecken. Alles in allem ist es mir jedoch etwas zu schnapsig.

peter48er (185) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
33cl bottle bought in Austria and drunk in UK over 12 months later. Pours a golden hue with a very short lived off white head, Very sweet with an almost sherry taste. Very quaffable on a wet winter’s evening.

Michcio (452) - Gdansk, POLAND - NOV 30, 2015
Barwa ciemnozłota, klarowne, piana biała, średnioobfita, dość szybko opada. W aromacie słodki syrop, alkohol, karmel. W smaku słodko, alkoholowo, alkohol wyraźny, ale nie spirytusowy, bardziej rumowy, nuty karmelowe i melasy, troszkę suszonych owoców i opiekanych słodów. Goryczka niska do średniej, wysycenie średniowysokie, nieco przesadzone, ciało dobre, czuć te 23 Plato. Nienajgorszy, ale jednak zdecydowanie za słodki i niezbalansowany.

bulldogops (1686) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 8, 2015
Rating #1271 - 05.10.2014 - Bottle from CBI. Mild-medium carbonation. Aroma is alcohol, sweet malts, mild vegetal. Taste is toasted malt sweetness leading to a dry, yet balanced finish. Malty sweetness lingers on the pallet leaving you yearning for the waitress to bring another. A strong, golden doppelbock sometimes pales in comparison to the rich, roasty darker brews in this category - this however takes on complexity unimaginable to its colour.
