Clear nice red-ish color, no head at all. Aroma is alcohol, caramel and tons of malt. Caramel taste, heavily sweet, malt and sugar. Creamy texture, thin body, soft carbonation.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a decent frothy white head. Sweet malty aroma, fruity notes can be picked up, but malt is dominant with some presence of alcohol smell. Taste is malty and (very) sweet, presence of alcohol is evident, mild bitterness in the finish. Not the best one for me. To sweet, with too much alcohol in the taste.

Lele (256) - Padova, ITALY - MAR 12, 2015
ASPETTO: biondo oro moltocarico, con schiuma bianca sottile, poco abbondante e poco persistente. AROMA: aroma da birra industriale, con qualche sentore liquoroso in più, devo dire che mi ha lasciato un po’ deluso. GUSTO: in bocca è alquanto strana, ci sono soprattutto due sapori sconnessi però tra loro. C’è un liquoroso marcato, ma un liquoroso dove si sente più che altro quasi solo l’alcool, senza sentori particolari. Il sentore alcolico è molto profondo ed presente in tutto il sorso fino all’abbondante retrogusto. L’altro sapore è un amaro che decisamente stona col resto. Nel retrogusto si avverte anche un sentore di scorza di pane. Corpo decisamente strutturato. CONCLUSIONE: Il risultato è una birra certo interessante, ma che stanca dopo non molti sorsi.

rikstar (1473) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2015
0,33l fles van de spar in zell am zillertal. In feite is dit een erg sterk pils. Goudgeel met een bescheiden kraag geur en smaak zijn moutig met een honing zoet karakter in de nasmaak een tikkeltje wrang.

szeli (87) - GERMANY - MAR 5, 2015
Beim Einschenken eine schöne satte dunkelgoldene Farbe, jedoch kaum Schaum. Sofort breitet sich ein süßlicher Geruch aus, sogar ehe man das Glas an der Nase hat. Im Antrunk zunächst sehr süß, starke Malzaromen. Zudem Rosinen und nicht näher definierbare getrocknete Früchte. Der Nachtrunk ist unangenehm alkoholisch, schlecht ausbalanciert. Insgesamt enttäuschend.

Benzai (10637) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle @ home, I think from Euro Swap 1/2015 thanks to Sebilinz. Clear golden color with a slight touch of orange and amber in it as well, medium sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, malt sweetness, slightly wort, grainy. Taste malts, sweet, alcohol and malty sweetness, again grainy. Slightly sticky texture, average body, average carbonation. I don’t really like it, it’s too malty, too sweet and too alcoholic.

0,33 l bottle. Golden color with white foam. Powerfull aroma of malts: honey, candied fruits, porto or eiswein, noble hop. Sharp taste, notably alcohol, cruelly warming, malty sweetness, fruits, raisins, low carbonation, alcohol and hop bitterness in finish. Ordung!

bottle at home. light orange, clear shiny color. smells of grains, malty sticky sweetness, dried fruits, liqueur. full body, grains, lots of sweetness, very alcoholic, medium carbonation, light bitter finish. I like the smell but not the rest, too alcoholic / sweet.

Vinx (87) - ITALY - FEB 6, 2015
It pours a full golden color with a very small and quickly vanishing white foam. Aroma of alcohol mainly, then mature fruit, prune, some bread, raisins, candy fruit, liquor-like. Sweet and heavy-bodied, low carbonation. It doesn’t remind me a doppelbock at all, rather a kind of low fermentation barley wine. Not bad, not good, just in the middle.

Bottle during vacation in Austria. Appearance: clear golden with off-white head. Aroma: flowery hops, malt. Taste: light bitter, very sweet. Palate: soft, very sweet body, medium carbonation. Overall: IMHO too sweet.
