Benzai (10870) - 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 (88) - 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.

kevinsenn (1561) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle. Lemon tea aroma. Sweet and syrupy with citrus notes and a bitter finish. Not a bad bock.

Senka (951) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 4, 2015
33cl bottle from Vienna. A very good example of doppelbock. What is important that it is malty and goes down easily. You enjoy it, and it does not torture you.

Hkrivera (153) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - DEC 26, 2014
First try from Austria. The aroma is soft, the after taste got punch as it is a double bock. I prefer Austrian chocolate better! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma fantástico. Gosto forte e cremoso. Faz juz a descrição que diz lúpulos nobres. Gosto duradouro na boca. Amargor do lúpulo e amargor do alto teor alcoólico bem perceptíveis. Forte e gostosa!
