Looks almost Grey brown, not very appetizing, but tastes like a quadrupel with a German yeast, and the signature banana clove flavor. Dark fruits and slight alcohol burn

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 2013.
Aroma has a nice malt character with a lot of dried fruit notes related to the malt. Lots of toasted bread and dark caramel and toffee. Moderate chocolate notes and faint roast. Lots of raisin, lighter prune and fig with a bit of berry character.
Pours a murky brown with some lighter brown boots on the edges. Medium thick, moderately sized tan head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers for a bit. Light leaving and medium sized legs.
Flavor is fairly sweet with quite a bit of dark caramel and toffee. Moderately high chocolate notes with faint roast. Lower toasted bread notes than in the aroma. Lighter fruit nous than in the aroma. Medium light raisin and prune along with faint berry and fig. Medium light bitterness. Finish has some alcohol spice, faint roast and toasted bread along with faint chocolate and moderate raisin.
Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall a pretty enjoyable beer with a really nice malt character and a light, but balanced fruit character. The alcohol is well hidden behind the malt sweetness. The beer is dominated by malt and Maillard reactions - if that is your thing you will like the beer. Not much yeast character.

Plum aroma. Burn and flavor similar to brandy. A little too sweet for my liking but a decent beer.

Bottle Limited 2012. Piwo swietne zapach powala. Rumu sliwek moczonych, piernika. W smaku dochodza rodzynki w alkoholu. Alkohol ukryty ale lekko sie jednak go wyczuwa, ale to ten szlachetny a nie czysty etanol. Wyglad piwa to ciemno fioletowo brazowa barwa, metna ze spora lepkoscia. Na dnie az sie klei od osadu. Bezowa i gigantyczna piana. Stoji dlugo. Naprawde przy takim alkoholu nie opada prawie wogole. Tresciwe i po prostu super bardzo smaczne. Szczegolnie polecam

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Un classico tedesco delle birre invernali. La doppelbock "ghiacciata", un puro concentrato di alcol e sapore. Colore rosso rubino, schiuma densa e bianca molto persistente. Profumi di malto e frutta. Corpo molto denso, gusto di caramello, nocciola e alcol. Birra impegnativa, da bere con moderazione.

Bottle - opaque dark brown, with slim off-white head. Intense aroma of dark fruit, prunes, banana, cloves. Same in the taste with added liquorice, dark berries. Full bodied, moderate carbonation with warming alcohol in the finish. Excellent.

Intense notes of jammy dark fruit and spice inter mingle on this beautifully rich beer. After the syrupy body coats the palate flavors of currant, rotting banana, clove, cooked cherry, burnt sugar, grape must, and so many more flavors. This beer provides a wealth of depth that really lingers through each sip.
