slapknot (8) - Safety Harbor, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Appearance is clear gold, a sort of maple leaf turned early. Bottle hissed with minor carbonation and indeed bubbles are few but steady, leading only to a thin white halo around the top of the glass. The smell is of alcohol, malt, and sweet iced tea with mint. Mouth-feel is dense, like caramel syrup. But the carbonation regains life on the tongue, forcing any excessive sweetness away from the tongue and bringing forth a mellow bitterness. This is a complex taste that lingers and coats the back of the throat, warming yourself as it flows down. Internally this is a lively beverage that awakens the intestines, perhaps best suitable as a digestive following a heavy, fall meal. Me thinks it would serve well after dark meat, like lamb or veal. As the temperature drops the malty sweetness becomes more dominant; notice the sugar coat on the lips. Served in a Samichlaus tulip.

Wendigo (197) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 17, 2016
0.33l bottle. Malty aroma with caramel, toffee and sweet notes. Clear golden color, no head. Malty taste with sweet caramel notes, cocktail cherries, light alcohol traces. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation and sweet finish with caramel notes.

darioklc (715) - Karlovac, CROATIA - OCT 10, 2016
Ovaj Dopplebock ima čak 9.6% alk. Austrijsko pivo, iskreno nemam pojma odokud mi. Naoko izgleda kao obično pivo, zlatno žute boje, malo zamućeno. U mirisu ima voćne note. Okusom se dosta osjeti ta jačina alkohola, ali ga slatkoća piva brzo zamaskira. Dosta je pitak s obzirom na toliki postotak alkohola.

McSherman (564) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2016
Orange bis kupferfarben fast klar mit wenig beständigem weißem Schaum. Süßlich malzig, spürbar alkoholisch. Aromen von Karamell, Honig, Marzipan. Leicht bitter. Interessantes helles Doppelbock, aber das Samichlaus ist eine Klasse besser.

midovark (576) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - AUG 11, 2016
0.33 l bottle. Pours clear golden with quickly disappearing head. Honey, reisin, alcohol, bitter and sweet notes in aroma. In taste first comes the sweetness and then dry bitterness. Heavy on body, softly carbonated. Good one.

eastroad (6) - FRANCE - JUL 31, 2016 does not count
One of the best Austrian beer i’ve tried. It’s a doppelbock beer; however its palate is lighter as expected. Roasted malt and brown sugar caramel notes compensated by the hops.

SeniorZozo (1293) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2016
Sweet honey aroma. Gold appearance. The head is not staying a lot. Honey strong taste. This could be a honey beer. But very nice body and palate.

ejh8 (118) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Cloudy, little more orange than pale yellow. Strong taste with a high ABV. I didn’t find the 9.6% to be as overwhelming as other higher ABV beers, but this isn’t that good and I took my time at it. It was a good beer to sample, but not make a staple.
