McTapps (6324) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep dark brown colour with low steady head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of malt and flowers. Taste of malt, barley, dark grains, strong alcohol, dried fruits, plums, roses and woods. Hints of chocolate. Decent Doppelbock.

Bottle, at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. It pours a clear, brown body under a small, off-white head. The aroma is malty tending towards meat. Caramel and a touch of dried fruits and fruity hops. Some bitterness in the flavor, with the maltyness dominating. Full-bodied, dryish yet sweet and with a nice carbonation level. Lasting caramel finish with dried fruits. A pretty nice one. 131019

Bottle, at Cardinal. It’s a dark copper, clear beer topped by a dense, beige head. Bread, grains, mash and rye bread on the nose. A silght oxidized hint in the mouth, with dark rye bread dominating. Bready finish. Medium to full body, dry. A pleasant bock. Rating: 6-4-6-4-13-3.3. 091106

Bottle, at Norøls Bockølfestival. It’s a dark brown beer with a reddish hue. A small off-white head sits on top. Roasted, slightly burnt bready nose with caramel and a hint of dms. Sweet caramel flavor with roasted malts and some dms. Full-bodied, almost sticky feeling. Strange, it felt dry the last time. Some bitterness in the finish. A nice beer suffering from dms even though the levels are low, and it could use more bittering hops. 100313

Beer5000 (5640) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2013
Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. Clear deep amber body with an off-white head. Aroma is mainly malty and gives a sweet impression. Flavor confirms the sweetness. Rather sweet on the malt side with dry fruit and not so much more, but that’s OK in this case. It’s simply a lovely sweet malty bock with a fine body, strong, sweet aftertaste and a hint of warming alcohol without being boozy.

500ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black with a big creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet malty and bread, Flavor is sweet malty, light bitter, some caramel and some kind of an unripe fruity freshness. Very pleasant and the alcohol is well hidden.

kappldav123 (5810) - GERMANY - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle looks really good. Gusher! Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts intense malty, fine roasty, not too much. Some fine malty-earthy notes. Modest alcoholic. Warming-malty finish. Not bad!

LCRBM 2009. The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Starts fruity and strong, malty with notes of liquorice, finish a bit moldy. Dry-malty aftertaste. Not bad!

A red-brown beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with light alcohol notes. The flavor is sweet matly with lots of caramel and alcohol, leading to a dry end, where the alcohol burns the mouth slightly. Nice.

Cristobal37 (626) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 20, 2013
A tasty bock, however nothing really to write home about as far as doppelbocks are concerned. Beautiful pour, although the aroma was very faint. The flavor too is not very bold and makes for a mild brew from beginning to end. It’s alcohol content is masked by its sweet silky nature. Not bad.

Idiosynkrasie (5861) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2013
500ml bottle. Wonderful clear, ruby red glowing, mahogany colour with average, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Malty aroma in typical dark Doppelbock style: caramel, toffee, a touch of malt spicyness. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet malty with identical characteristic, dry hop notes compensate portions of the sweetness. Typical, good.
