Pours wtih a deep red-brown body topped by a thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet and malty with a bitter, grassy and slightly piney hop note. Much hoppier than I expected. Full bodied, dry and warming.

11.2oz. bottle: This bottle gives a new definition to the term "long neck". This beer certainly has the longest, skinniest neck on a swing top that I have ever seen. It opens with a loud pfffft. Good color: is is a hazy, slightly reddish mahogany hue with a small head on it. Nice aroma. Notes of toffee, caramel, and some spiciness. An interesting taste. Slightly sweet, with some bitterness at the same time. The taste itself is quite complex. Full flavor, with notes of caramel, fruits, roastiness, and others coming through. A very good beer.

Pour is a very dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is strong malts with a slight hop presence. Flavor is strong dose of malts with some biterness. Wow malts are out the wahoo on this brew. Some dark fruit is in there but nothing to get this one a better review. Still this is tasty and right in my range of how much i want to spend on a brew.

Bottle from Matt (drbayern) Thanks. Pours out a brown color with a tan colored head that resides through most of the beer. Smell is sugar, some smoked malts, hops, some wheat. Taste is similar, though slighly bitter from the rather high abv content for an altbier. Pretty good stuff, but Id prefer that my altbiers and other German style beers not taste like american barley wine. interesting though. Thanks for the bottles Matt.

Aroma is initially chocolate malt which gives way to a slight hop presence. Great aroma. Medium brown with red hints. Small, quickly dissipating head. Very full and powerfull palate compliments the huge amount of malt flavor that you start with. The malt is followed by a slight hint of alcohol and a nice hop bite. Very full and lovely sweet malt flavor.

doublebock (528) - California, USA - NOV 28, 2006
Very complex flavors for a double bock. Starts off with a sweet taste followed by a chewiness and dry feel. You know its strong without tasting the alcoho until the endl.

jasonp (1557) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2006
Sampled at Dutch 70’s "Tasting in the Woods; Part Deux". Clear dark amber with a thick white head. Bready, doughy caramel nose with some grassy hops. Flavor has notes of dark caramel, lots of bread, alcohol and tons of resinous noble hop bitterness. Pleasantly sweet too. Full, round and creamy with moderate carbonation. Really good stuff.

Interesting balance between the hop and malt department with this beer. A dark amber in appearance with an aroma was a bit overly alcoholic, strongly malty, a little roast and some hops also present. A very malty sweet flavor, however it is nicely off set with hops so one tune doesn’t play louder than the other. Also some alcohol on the palate. Good beer. Cool bottle.
