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.

Bottle, pours gold with a white head, has a sweet malt and honey aroma, taste is similar but with a little caramel and a noticeable alcohol kick, taste pretty much stays sweet, with very little bitterness, not bad

Mint egy jó öreg viszki, megbarikkolva az igaz. Testes és selymes, nameg aztán negédes.

Buckeyeboy brought this back from Austria... I am sure I have had it before, but am surprised to see no rating.... soooo, here it is. Pours a clear orange... no real lacing... nose is fruity malt extract, not nearly as clean as most doppelbocks.. sweet and very boozy. Flavor mirrors the aroma... sweet with something that reminds me of apricot.. cloying malt with no balance at all... one dimensional and not even remotely to my doppelbock liking anymore. Body is surprisingly not that thick, but the carbonation is lighter than it should be leading to a sorta clinging mouthfeel. Thanks Jeremy, but I remember this one being better.

330ml bottle brought back from Austria. Pours out crisp golden topped with a white ring of a head. Nose is sweet malts candy sugar and a nice grass. Taste is as the nose with lots of sweetness and a nice finish.

Şişe @ istanbul.. Açık maun rengi kalıcı olmayan beyaz köpük, bardakta hafif gazlı ve orta gövdeli.. Koku alkol, karamel, tatlılık içeriyor.. Tadımda yine karamel ve alkol ön planda, ancak meyve tatları da hissediliyor.. Biraz sert ancak başarılı..

Aranyló színe és kevés habja van, mely ennél az alkoholfoknál több, mint megbocsátható. Illata fantasztikusan gazdag, aszalt gyümölcsös, mézes és tejszínes, mely intenzivitás az ízében is határozottan jelen van. A likőrös édességet komlós keserűség követi, mely utóíz formájában is hosszasan megmarad. Rendkívül testes sör, igazi különlegesség.

Fra butikk i Altmünster. Kosedrikk i Bergweg 1 8 Mai 14. Lys gyldenbrun. Lavt skum. God, litt sřt maltaroma med antydning til plommer. Myk munnfřlelse. Smaken er veldig vinřs. Plommer. Mandler. Pĺ grensen til sherry. Avslutter třrt & bittert. Riktig bra! Alkoholen skinner igjennom i avslutninga og drar litt ned.
