Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark brown with off white head. Huge malty sweet aroma. Caramel, toffee, biscuits, syrup notes. Taste is definitely malt dominated. Toffee, caramel, maple syrup tastes. Sticky sweet mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied. Pretty solid doppelbock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, light booze in the last hurrah. Decent.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 January 29, 2014 - on tap at Hessen Haus. Dark brown pour with nice amount of head and some lacing. Nice aroma and taste of malt, caramel and toffee. A touch of spice in the finish as it warmed. Medium body and light carbonation.

Color is reddish-brown; decent finger of head. Aroma is sugary as hell; sweeeeet molasses. An interesting touch of red-wine grapes. Heavy cola aroma. Once you get past the initial saccharine sweetness, it mellows out lovely. Flavor is tobacco and leather. Stone fruits and ashy mocha. Cola and candi-sugar sweetness, but in a way that is blunted somewhat by a mild sourness. Smooth, oily slickness. Buttery smooth; one of the smoothest beers I can imagine. It’s got that Euro-sweetness, but the dry, ashy quality prevents it from being a sugarbomb.

ryecatcher (731) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep mahogany brown, smallish cream-colored head, okay retention and decent lacing. Nose is kinda faint, malty, some brown sugar, raisins. Mouth is thankfully much bigger than the sniffer... Malt forward, chewy pumpernickel bread crusts, dried fruits, hint of molasses, full bodied and light sweetness, creamy finish. Really nice dopplebock. Prost!

HuskerTan (459) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle. A- Dates, figs, cherries, caramel, brown sugar, plums. A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, off white head. T- Medium maltiness, dark fruits, cherries, brown sugar, sweet bread. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, soft finish. O- A very good beer from a very good brewery. The dark fruit aroma and taste was fantastic. Not quite what I was expecting...even better!

Maakun (507) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2014
Clear dark brown, small greyish head and visible carbonation. Yeast, caramel, toast, coffee beans, some herbal, light medicinal notes. Medium sweet with roasted butter and dry finish. Medium-thin bodied, goes down well... Nice, but Weihenstephaner makes better stuff.
