Jimthechap (1989) - Christchurch, - OCT 10, 2012
Golden colour with coarsish carbonation and a white head that left some lace on the side of the glass. The aroma is an interesting one with classic golden Germanic malts to the fore, some toffee and a bit of a signature ’there’s a fair amount of alcohol here John, I hope you haven’t got much planned for this afternoon’. I say that, but it could be easily overlooked. There’s also some dried orchard fruit aroma as well. Initially bubbly and then the full bodied juicy whack that also brings out caramel and toffee. It is unctuous without being over-sweet. The finish is one that gives a nod to highish alcohols and fruity esters that dries and leaves you with orange oil and mace.

musehead (13) - Siena, ITALY - MAY 9, 2015
Birra deludente. Stuzzicante come profumi, in cui c’è una forte prevalenza di frutta matura e miele e praticamente nulla di derivazione luppolata, ma anche come colore, dato che la frizzante schiuma chiara lascia subito il posto ad una limpidezza dorata carica insolita per una doppelbock. Quel che davvero mi è dispiaciuto nel sapore è il netto distacco tra la parte aromatica e quella molto accentuata alcolica. E’ una 9.6%, ma la botta arriva tutta insieme e separata dal resto dei sapori, lasciando questa spiacevole sensazione di alcol etilico che dà la certezza di aver bevuto qualcosa di forte ma che spacca la degustazione in due. Non consigliata.

Oro carico, limpida, poca schiuma non molto persistente, ben carbonata, corpo pieno. Aroma di uva passa e pesca disidratata. Stessa cosa al palato con la componente maltata che spicca su tutto il resto, nota erbacea sul finale, molto molto dolce e noiosa.

MarkoNm (1196) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAR 14, 2015
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 (222) - 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 (1228) - 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 (19) - 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.
