The most nearly perfect beer I’ve ever had. 9.6% alcohol but smooth as glass! Like a good cognac or a good brandy. If you like a thick head on you beer, this is NOT the beer for you!

Just an amazing bock. Not as pricey as Eggensberg's Stanichlaus and tasty as heaven!

This beer is simply fascinating. It is a full flavored bock. Heavy with tones of malt and hops yet it pours a translucent gold color! It is one of the greatest BOCKS in the world

Nothing bad about this brew. Taste is semisweet, fruity sniff and deep golden color with honey, caramel, slight malty cereal, bananna and a slight nutty flavor. The achohol is incorporated nicely. Paired well with jerk chicken. The brew is well done and deserves a higher rating.

Nice body, nice hop, a bit sweet with a fine ending. Works well with hard cheese or otherwise.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2004 This is awesome. Had this before but it has been a while until last night. Strong aroma and taste of alcohol. There is also a slight candy-ish and strong maltiness taste within. Golden blond with a slight shade of brown in color and translucent. Finishes with an alcohol note. Not for the weak of heart! Very similar to EKU 28 (another of my favorites). This truly is the 'Cognac Of Beers'. Highly recommended winter warmer.

An exceptional beer. Pours an rich amber color with little head. This beer has a malty sweetness with undertones of bread and caramel. The high alcohol content is not obvious in the flavor.

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.
