BB12/2014 Shared by 3, 11/14. Icing sugar, vanilla and honey variations of heller Doppelbock malt concentrate in aroma merge into a broader range of plum wine, apple compote, honey malts, cereal sake. Herbal hops at the fringes for contour to this unctuous partouze. Low-carbed, well-rounded and mostly balanced despite its heavy abv wallop. Unlike many traditional malt-cooked clobbers like this with no alleviating sugar-aided Belgian yeast profile, quite delicate and enjoyable.

0,33l bottle out of Bockbeer Box. Well I must admit that this beer has something special, although I usually dont like such extra strong beers. Of course I couldnt drink this every day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sparf (162) - Östersund, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2014
Provdatum okänt. Fruktiga malttoner dominerar aromen, utan rostade inslag. Snarare en söt, brödaktig doft. Ganska stor och intressant. Klassisk lagerfärg och ett snabbt försvinnande skum. Rejält maltig smak med sötma. Inslag av torkad frukt och så en värmande alkohol. På grund av den höga densiteten drar den nästan mot belgisk ale i stilen, trots att det är en lager. Intressant. En mycket liten beska pockar på uppmärksamhet i eftersmaken.

Light amber color, short white head with no lacing. Nothing in particular on the nose.
Aroma is, wow, very liquory. thick malts with syrup, honey and brandy/rum. Doughy yeast, slight fruity esters. Thin hops profile, seems noble hops indeed but undercover. Alcohol is burning, very warming.
Taste is sweetish then ends up in a quite strong bitterness, a bit metallic but mostly alcohol-related. Finish is sadly short, spicy, with fuel notes. Body is full, ultra thick texture, heavy, creamy texture, sticky, low carbonation.
Perfect for winter. The cognac of beers? Hum, really don’t know as rarely i end up to such powerful lagers at the edge of barley malt neither i know something about cognacs, but i’d say it fits well.

Hugi (463) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
Tasted with bastarda and bartlebier. Thanks to the latter for providing this beer. Light-orange, clear with a small head. Aroma of Brezel, apple, quince and honey. Sweet and malty, honey-flavour, baked apple and a low bitterness. Full body, velvety, long-lasting taste.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle served in a chalice. My first Austrian beer review. A: Nice bottle art. Pours a clear golden color forming a medium, bubbled and creamy white head. Good retention with some lingering lacings left S: Sweet and malty in the nose. Strong notes of sweet grains. Dark fruits. Bready yeasts and flowery hops. A bit booze in the end T: Quite sweet and malty upfront. Strong notes of caramel malts. Some notes of caramel and dark fruits. A bit metallic in the end. You can feel some alcohol nevertheless it’s well hidden. In overall, a quite balanced bittersweet taste M: Full and bit molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Malty bittersweetness in the aftertaste O: Good drinkability despite the high ABV. I was expecting much less from this beer, good surprise [ BA Review @ 2/5/2010 ]

Stefanos (114) - POLAND - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle. Pale, clear, nearly no head at all. Aroma is clear with some nutty notes and metalic too, although test for iron came negative ;) It’s sweet. Really sweet. Heavy, oily and bit alcoholic. Not my cup of tea. Or rather - not my glass of beer.

Very sweet and fruity doppelbock, clear golden color with a small white head. Strong and warm alcohol aftertaste.
