In 1994, the 33 Plato gave it the world’s highest gravity. Though the beer can no longer make this claim, it is still one of the world’s most reknowned strong lagers.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2016 On tap at the brewery. This beer amazed me. Very dark and viscous, little soy sauce flavor. No real head on it. For a high abv German beer it was pretty delicious.

Vom Fass im Brauhaus. Rötlich braun und trüb. Schaum ist sofort weg. Es duftet nach Pflaume und Gewürze. Sehr spannend. Süsser Antrunk. Dörrpflaume, Getrockneter Apfel, Brot. Sehr weich und rund. Schlner langer fruchtig-schwerer Abgang.

pivnizub (10183) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 22, 2016
Bottle: Cloudy, reddish-amber coloured, rapidly vanishing loose off-white head; fruits and caramel in the sweet nose, distinctive traces of Schnapps in the background; solid sweet flavour with hoppy traces, full bodied and a bit sticky; lingering sweet-fruity finish, some herbal-hoppy traces detectable, warming alcohol in the very end. Totally overrated…

A simple bottle without information about the hops or malts. A cloudy red brown beer with a very small Cappuccino head. Strong malty and heavy sweet, caramel, full body, flat carbonation, texture oily, (I have a 0.5l bottle without batch or best-before date.)

rosenbergh (10658) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Draught at the Vetter, Heidelberg, Germany. Dark brown color with a tiny light tan head. Dark fruits, raisins, sweetness, marmalade and dark maltiness in the aroma. The flavor is... Wow!? This is... strong! Dark fruits, sweetness, plums and alcohol. Alcohol is quite strongly present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (2275) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Pours a finger of head on a hazy brown body. The aroma is mild to non-existent... grain? The taste is caramel candy, malty sweet, touch of lemon, alcohol heat, cotton candy with a long finish. The texture is medium and smooth. It’s really sweet, worth trying for the experience.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2016 Colore ambra scuro, schiuma quasi invisibile. Birra molto dolce, da degustare a fine pasto e preferibilmente nei mesi freddi. Non è facile da sorseggiare visto l?alcol così in evidenza. Una buona doppelbock che spinge molto sul lato dolce. Carbonazione bassa.
