Embrouille (2803) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2011
Bottled 50cl. Ordered from www.bierzwerg.de. It pours very dark beer with a medium sized beige head. A lot of DMS throughout. Sweet. Apple and marmite are very present. Some icelandic moss sneaking in. Low bitterness. I didn’t enjoy this beer at all. Overrated.

jfb (3462) - GERMANY - DEC 23, 2011
(bottle) pours a clear dark copper-ruby colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of dark fruit, burning embers, hazelnuts, roasted malts, milk chocolate and a little too much yeast. flavour is mostly the same, roasted malts, dark fruit and yeast, quite sweet, with a medium herbal-hoppy finish. medium to strong-bodied with average carbonation.

TBone (11888) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2011
Bottled 500ml (BZ, BB 10/2012)
Dark brown color, small beige head. Toasted, woody aroma. Medium-bodied. Dark malty, chocolaty, toasted malts. Light grassy bitterness and some alcohol. Smooth and balanced.

EithCubes (4623) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle by 12.10.12. Nose is sweet caramel and roast, rich malt, more on the molasses than plum/grape side. Dark chestnut pour with ruby highlights and a sudsy light brown head (sort of ugly, truth be told). Taste is sickly sweet and sticky, lots of berry and fruit, raisins and brown sugar. Just super sweet, though. Good malt depth, medium body, just can’t really seem to enjoy it! Maybe for cooking?

TheCametron (1592) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 29, 2011
Bottle. Caramel brown with a tan head. Sweet malty nose. Dried fruit derived sweetness. A nice dopplebock

Rasmus40 (9834) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2011

KnutAlbert (5757) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle at Amundsen, Oslo. Lovely glowing ruby, beige head. Slow flowing, lazy bubbles. Not skimpy on the malt. Aroam of malt and raisins. Sweet, burned sugar, bitter background. A hint of yeast. Rich flavor, would be perfect with pork ribs or a ripe cheese.

Grima (2035) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2011
Pours dark ruby red with a creamy, fine brown head. Smells like dark malts, very roasty and coffee-like, slightly aroma of licorice comes through. Starts very roasted malty, slightly sweet, intense coffee flavor. The middle part has some earthy-smoky flavors. Roasted coffee in the finish, subtly smoky / peaty, again, dominated by licorice flavor! Absolutely magnificent Doppelbock!!!

lagerlovr (2) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2011 does not count
Fantastically rich and interesting beer. Very stong malty almost Marmite flavours. Balanced sweet and bitter taste. Cannot taste the relatively high alcohol. Really worth trying to find a bottle.
