Bottle. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is spicy, herbal, floral, yeast, vegetables, caramel and raisin. Taste is quite sweet. Not too sweet, luckily. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Decent doppelbock.

Great beer. Compared to the Schneider Aventinus, this is a bit heavier & a bit maltier to me. Just as good though!

For lovers of strong and clean aromas of cereal and yeast, great taste and incredible and lasting aftertaste.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 Bottle: brown on the pour, closer to black in the glass with a light-tan head that fades slowly to a swampy & bubbly skin. Aroma is super sweet malt; cocoa powder, caramel, sticky molasses, hints of brown sugar coated dates, plums, and bruised raisins. Kiss of smoke in the finish with a light touch of anise. Taste is similar in complexity, with sweet & malty caramel, toffee, brown sugar & burnt molasses. Good amounts of mid-palate anise, black licorice, plums, dates, sugar-y raisins and quite a bit of finishing cocoa powder. Body is sticky and oily at the same time, just short of a creamy mouth feel. Well crafted doppelbock, I’m just not the biggest fan of the style. Tasty, intriguing, complex, nebulous.

So easy to drink - not at all cloying - impressive dobbelbock for me - fruity aftertaste which pleases me - not over malty.

Transferring Beer Advocate rating here. I don’t think this style is for me. I was not the biggest fan.

smells of grapes and strong dark fruits....(prunish)...great dark red color, taste is bold malt, medium-strong alcohol, lighter on fruits than smell perceived, slightly sour finish...not sweet at all...which hurts it a tad in my book

Donker wit. Ruikt lekker, maar smaakt beetje licht en niet heel lekker. Tijdens popquiz
