Had this one at the 27th Bokbierfestival in Amsterdam (2004), but did not make any notes and forgot most of the impressions I had. Really want to try this one again, judging from other peopleís ratings.

Pours dark brown with light tan head. Aroma has lots of malt. Flavors of dark fruits and yes, lots of malt. Little hop bitterness, just enough to be appropriate for style. Moderately carbonated. Good Doppelbock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) The word "Bock" doesnít appear anywhere on the label on this beer from the brewery said to be the oldest in the world - but clearly, thatís what it is. Dark and heavy with lots of malts and sweetness, and not really any bitterness. Pleasant and quite characteristic. 301003.

Aroma of freash baked bread just out of he oven. Dark ruby red body when held to light and tan foamy head. Flavor was sweet, slightly bitter and licorice candy. Not overly sweet and not overly bitter. Good Doppelbock.

This is a very nice beer - and i think its official that doppelbock is an excellent style. Chocolaty, full of spark and and fizz. A top notch brew.

Poured a very dark amber, with a thick layer of off white head, that recedes after a few minutes to form a medium ring. Aroma is all prunes, chocolate, and raisins. Some yeast also makes its way through. Lots of malts in this bad boy. So, so malty. Plum is dominate on the palate, as is some grape flavor. Seet with a dry finish. Good stuff. As it warms, more chocolate and sweetness are evident. The alcohol is not noticeable at all.Yum yum.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red amber color with a good sized head that went down in a short time. The aroma is thick and hearty. Itís pretty full of roasted character, and some earthy sweetness. Flavor is lightly roasted, and sugary sweet. Palate is slightly bitter. This is a really well rounded beer, but not standout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
07.01.05 500ml bottle. Strange that Iíd never heard of or seen this beer before today. Anyway, the pour is dark, beer-bottle brown with ample tan head and not much lacing. Aromas are less sweet than many doppels, caramel, brown sugar, peppery hints, dark pretzel. Flavors follow suit with some bananas foster appearing at the finish before a lightly charred note and salt/pepper grip takes hold of the aftertaste. Itís nicely done if not enchanting. Alcohol is not at all noticable, body is a medium-full, but should be meatier.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
1.9 pt bottle. Fairly standard double bock beer. Not as sweet or thick as Celebrator or Paulanor yet very tasty without the cloyness as this type can be. Personally this seems more like an Aventinus, but that is just me.
