kappldav123 (5597) - GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, dark brown, nice head. Starts strong with some alcoholic notes, malty, not too roasty. Fruity-sweetish notes of apricot. Finish still warming-alcoholic. Okay.

jgb9348 (5233) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Very rich deep brown coloured body with a very thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, earth, pit fruits, metal, malt and some lighter scents like banana and concord grapes - nice. Full-bodied; Rich caramel flavours up front with a big malt kick, some alcohol notes of brandy and cognac and hints of the caramel and a touch of spice on the finish. Aftertaste is a bit rich from malt and also showing some alcohol depth with a subdued yet strong complexity. Overall, a nice rich malty doppelbock with a good taste of yeast and some sweet finishes. Not as refined and polished as I would like, but a good option if you can find it in Germany! I sampled this stubby 33 cL bottle purchased from Ambrosetti in Berlin, Germany on 30-December-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 24-October-2014, almost four years later, but still showing good character.

Feinporiger Schaum von kurzer Dauer. Farbe Rubinrot, klar. Geruch nach Karamell und Trockenfrüchte, brotig. Antrunk sehr malzig und süß, mit guter Vollmundigkeit. Karamellnoten und Trockenfrüchte mit leichten Cognacnuancen im Hintergrund. Trotz der hohen Süße ist der Hopfen deutlich wahrnehmbar. Langer, weicher Abgang.
