Slight aroma. Color is as black as coffee. Smooth taste with a rich almost chocolate finish. Minimal foam/head at the top of the beer. Very good beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Niet echt een topbiertje. Het is wel een dubbelbock. Weinig schuim op het bier wat toch wel jammer is. Al met al niet een biertje waar ik snel voor in de rij zal gaan staan.

rjplumer (443) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Deep roasted malt aroma that’s intoxicating. Rich mahogany body with an off white head that lingers nicely. More roasted malt on the taste buds that feel smooth and rich. Sweet caramel background. Also has crisp feel to it too.

fraternie (842) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2014
All malt. Creamy body with tons of roasted chocolate and sweet caramel with a hint of dark plum underneath. Subtle warm bread and wood show through the finish with little to no hop presence, but this is very smooth, warming and rich.

Daanminator (153) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Deze al een tijd geleden op maar hij beviel echt niet. Gedronken van de tap in een 0.5 liter glas van Weihenstephaner. Het is een echte dubbelbock, smaak is zwaar. Geen tot weinig schuim. Vol donker bier.

CraftyBeerTour (72) - Barcelon, SPAIN - NOV 12, 2014
50cl bottle. Rich intense aroma: molasses, sourdough bread, plum cake. Light beige head. Dark reddish brown. Roasty, caramel edge, but flavour is mainly rich and fruity - dark, cake fruit, sherry-drenched raisins. Very light bitterness. Light carbonation. Some silkiness in the mouth. Heady in its richness and fruitiness.

mmargarucci (70) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Pours bitch black with a tan head. Aroma has toffee, Caramel and roasted notes. Taste is similar with an added touch of maple syrup like sweetness. Wonderful classic doppelbock.

Moravius (572) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2014
Flasche (50 cl). - Schwarzbraun, dunkler Schaum. - Antrunk sehr dunkelmalzig aber nur zurückhaltend röstig. Bitterschokolade, Kakao, Lakritz, Holznoten, pikante Säure. Die Malzsüße wirkt nirgends dick. Gut rezent, sehr vollmundig, samtiges Mundgefühl. Im Hintergrund leicht holzige, schwach grasige Herbe. Ausreichend bitterer Nachtrunk. - Vornehmer, außerordentlich harmonischer Doppelbock, der elegant die Kurve von der tiefen Malzigkeit zur holzigen Bittere schlägt, ohne dick oder fuselig zu wirken, trotz eines untergärig eingeschränkten Geschmacksprofils.

50cl bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a fine creamy light beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, black bread, dark fruits, some spices. Taste is similar with some more roastiness, molasses, light coffee. Oily mouthfeel, light caramel aftertaste, very light bitterness. Light carbonation, medium to full body. Excellent.

VincentKabel (221) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2014
Brown coloured beer with a off-white, very firm head. Madium carbonation. The Weizen background of this beerbrand is abundantley clear. The typical creamy taste is there. With a differrent sort of fruitiness (raisins?). Roasted malts and a smooth finish. Good beer, a bit to little character for a doppelbock.
