Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - MAR 27, 2004
Bottled. Dark golden colour, small white head, disappears fast, glass sticking. Sweet nose, at first I smell a strange aroma of fresh cut potatoes, after this, more conventional aromas of fruity, apricot and peach preserved in spirit, malt aroma(bread, potatoes bread), alcohol. Taste is sweet (honey), with a lot of alcohol sweetness. Full body, with an excessive alcohol-feel, rather heavy but easy to drink if compared with similar strong lager beers. It's a beer punch!

Holdwine (1075) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2004
A little disappointed with this one. Maybe I chilled it too much. Overly sour alcohol burn. I didn't sense any "noble hops bitterness" or "creamy flavour". More strw color than amber.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2004
Deep golden coloured with white head. Full bodied, malty and sweet. Notes of liquorice and alcohol.

SlimJimDrinker (115) - Nørrebronx, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2004
aroma is quite yeasty with a strong touch of alcohol... Powerful in taste and a long lasting sharp aftertaste

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Doesn't look like a DB, though malty and very warming, with little hop flavor; quite alcoholic tasting; finishes slightly dry; too strong of an alcoholic taste that lingers to really enjoy this otherwsee very tasty brew

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Deep clear golden yellow color, has a decent head that doesn't last. Sweet malty, toffee candy like aroma. Sweet burnt caramel sugar flavors, full body and a thick and syrupy mouthfeel, alcohol comes out in the finish with a sticky sweetness, not at all what I expected.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2004
The aroma is very sweet with notes of caramel, alcohol, and peach. The color is light amber and it has a bubbly beige head, though fast disappearing. The flavor is very sweet malty caramel with notes of peaches and mango. The texture is sticky in the mouth. A nice "barley wine".

brewbear (48) - 3096 Oberbalm, SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2004
unbalanced bockbier with a nasty longlasting taste of alcohol. Why do they use in a bockbier Antioxydanz and Ascorbin ???????

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2004 Re-rate 9/8/2004 Sparkling clear amber with a dense white foam for a head. Lacing is superb. The beer is a true joy to behold. Huge sweet malt aroma, somewhat fruity but mainly just malty. Not caramel or molasses but just pure malt, smells a bit like wort. Some wod notes also come throughupon furhter olfactory contemplataion. The flavor is sweet toffee, breadiness uderneath and no real hops to speak of. The alcohol is neer overwhelming and complements the experience well. Full thick body. Truly a beer more akin to a liquore then its malt-based brethern. A must try.

1/12/2004 8/4/8/4/17 - 4.1Pours very thick. Light amber body small white head with ok lacing. Massive sweet honey aroma along with some very distinct Scotch Whisky type aromas. Huge sweet honey and Scotch Whisky flavors. Oaky flavors and almost zero hops. Wow this stuff is good. Body is huge and syrupy. The alcohol is evident in the numbing effect it has on the gums. Not what I expected given this beer’s classification as a dopplebock. A very different beer and one that any true beer geek must try.

hopscotch (9064) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2004
Clear, deep yellow lager. Huge malt. Smells and tastes like molten butterscotch and honey. The alcohol isn't shy and neither are the hops, which almost balance the beer. Powerful brew!
