COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unser stärkstes Schwarzbräu – speziell für die kalte Jahreszeit. Gebraut als Doppelbock mit dunklem, bayerischem Malz und veredelt mit Hopfen aus der Hallertau, schmeckt es besonders vollmundig und kräftig. Hochbekömmlich durch 6-wöchige kalte Lagerung. Stammwürze: 19.9 %.

jgb9348 (4773) - 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.

pivnizub (8927) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle: Clear, amber to deep amber coloured, moderate sweet-malty and toasty-fruity nose; quite slim for a Doppelbock, moderate sweet-bitter flavour; slightly lingering sweetish toasty-bitter finish. Quite nice, but pretty slim…

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 30, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, chestnut colour with a medium-sized and slightly beige foamy head. Moderately sweet and mildly toasted malty aroma with notes of bread and caramel. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied at most with a calm carbonation. Dark and slightly toasted malty taste with mildly bready accents; sweet, even a little bit sugary finish but with a balancing an delicate bitterness; the alcohol is well-hidden. 17.IV.12

Bottle. Marzipan bread aroma. Dark chestnut, offwhite head. Sweet roast, light rye bread, molassis on the tongue - somewhat sticky, otherwise fresh, nice hop profile in the back.
