bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, - DEC 20, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 Not very enjoyable, oversweet, cloying and virtually aromaless, overboosted honeycomb concoction that shames Waldhaus’ otherwise quality output and use of natural hops. Undercarbonated, hops buried under unnecessary 8.5 ABV ethanol and sugary malts. Not ostentively awful, but leaden and unbelievably dull. More sensible and tasty paths were chosen with their 7.0% IPA - their Dunkel is enjoyable as well. // Rerate: Edition 2015, MHD 10/2016. obviously updated 2015 version, maybe after all the negative feedback? Still a 8,5% Doppelbock, bottomfermented.... Nose of wet starch, old honey, jenever and vodka. Taste and palate have become much drier, less sticky/pappy/starch. A hint of freezedried peppery aroma hops. Alcoholwise, venturing into tripel territory, without any of the Tripel phenols or esters to balance out the heavy alcohol. As refined as an unnecessary 8,5% Doppelbock will ever become...

pours a clear golden with a medium white head and a nice lacing. aroma of hay, grass, nuts. flavour of sweet sweetness, some herbs, grass and alcohol. oily mouthfeel, flat carbonation.

zvsn (1189) - ISRAEL - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow orange with a small head, does not look a typical doppel bock. Smell of fruity esters, spices and yeast. Taste of sweet malt, overripe fruit, yeasty spiceness. Medium bodied, quite boozy. Not bad just too weird for doppel bock.

Calisky (2021) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 14, 2014
Couleur dorèe, très légère mousse blanche. Nez malté,pomme, note caramel, comme le style bière forte pas chère.... Gout pareil... Vraiment décevante pour une doppel bock!

Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2014
Smooth malts-sweetish. Fresh, not too sticky, intense. Smooth with a not too deep sweetish body. Easy to drink, but I miss the complexity a bit.

minutemat (2911) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
330ml bottle, thanks to Beerhunter111. Pours gold, with white head. Actually didn’t mind this, unlike those below. My notes say ’bubblegum lager’ and this had a fair sweetness that complements the malts. It is slightly cloying but I enjoyed it.

Goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig, malzig, hopfig. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig, hopfig, leicht alkoholisch.

darkseduction (669) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - MAR 14, 2014
Flasche 33cl. Goldfarbener Doppelbock mit mäßiger Krone. In Duft und Antrunk unbesonders. Was ist denn hier passiert? Kein Ausnutzen des tollen weichen Brauwassers? Wo bleibt die Finesse der anderen Produkte der Brauerei? Sehr enttäuschend. Flach, spritig, ölig. Hatte viel mehr erwartet.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2014
Netter, süßlicher Bock mit etwas Butter und leicht an Honig. Dumpf, dennoch einfach zu trinken, aber in vielen Punkten einfach geschmacklos.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep golden colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of flowers, straw, mild apples, grains and cereals. Hints of strong alcohol. Not really special, but okay.

bierkoning (11539) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle from Bartlebier, thanks! Blonde. peach and floral notes in the aroma. malty sweet, alcoholic flavor with floral notyes and plums. Almost sugary. Onedimensional doppelbock, that doesn’t impress.
