This beer poured a very dark cloudy brown with plentiful head. It had a sweet fruity aroma with what I could have sworn was a hint of spiciness, but the spice did not carry through into the flavor or palate. Instead, it was extremely malty...right down to the lingering finish with hints of apples and bananas. Very refreshing and smooth, but maybe a little too malty.

From bottle. At opening, there’s a nice aroma of dates that hints at the flavor. Taste if of dares with chocolate malt. Exceptionally smooth.

ciocanelu (1435) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 14, 2016
Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has lots of dried fruits, mostly figs, dates and raisins, toasted malts and some brown sugar. Taste starts with the dark malts shining the most, continues with some of the dried fruits and finishes with some alcohol warmth and a touch of roasty bitterness to balance out the sweet malts. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. This is a really good doppelbock. I’m not really a huge fan of the style but I can appreciate such a well made beer.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2016 Słodowe, karmelowe, z nutami suszonych owoców. Słodkie, niezbyt treściwe jak na styl, alkohol lekko wyłazi. Spore wysycenie.

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, dried fruit, bread and nuts.

Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and dried fruit; ends slightly dry with bread and nuts.

This beer is rather intense and balanced. The flavour could have had more depth and could have been more complex. The aroma lacks in all areas though, missing any intensity to make it interesting.

Bottle at the 2015 Beer&Boardgames in the woods session with esp0r & simonsen. Dark brown body with a small tanned head. Aroma of dark fruit, nuts, yeast and roast. Taste is sweet, chocolate, with a raw bitterness I didn’t enjoy. Short malty finish with a light alcohol note.

BlackBeerPG (367) - Darien, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2016
Taste: bold, strong alcohol kick with a malty and hop presence. Complex fermented grains with a hint of sweet malt in the nose. Dark amber and semi opaque with a amber head with tight bubbles and carbonation. Full body with some kick.
