Dark reddish brown with a tiny head that doesn’t last. Roasty aroma with dark fruit, nuts, and caramel. Bold flavor which is similar to the aroma, with some lingering sweetness. Full body with soft carbonation. Very complex and enjoyable. Great doppelbock.

Dark reddish brown with a medium tan head. Malty and fruity tones. Malt, fruit caramel and sweetness. Medium to full body with a nice balanced finish.

DocJitsu (1180) - Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Horehound candy color with ruby glints in the light. A huge caramel colored head forms and performs relatively well. A lot of caramel, some prune fruitiness, and quick notes of hard candy on the nose. Full body, light richness, and mild carbonation. A bit of a smoky quality interacts with the caramel and fruit for a bolder gestalt.

huineman (252) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
Pours dark, almost black, with abundant tan head. Low intensity aromas: toast, coffee, iron. Soft and light, watery and medium lasting. Nice but dull. Apt to drink gallons in a row.

Out of bottle. Despite the bottle being a bit too cold, a very promising and pleasant aroma is there. Pours clear dark with small head. Taste is absolutely great, super-smooth, creamy. It is just so well balanced. My favorite double bock so far. Wow

YigSvartka (192) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2015 Opaque dark brown. Minimally sized beige head. Pleasantly potent aroma containing notes of chocolate, caramel, malt, dried berries and licorice. Full bodied, silky smooth, and creamy. Absolutely delectable combination of flavours consisting of chocolate, roast, caramel, malt, cherry, licorice, alcohol, and vanilla. Amazingly complex beer.

tekstr1der (120) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2015
Wow. No faults here. Perhaps it’s too smooth? This miracle beverage pours very deep, pretty mahogany with thin off-white top. The aromas of plum, molasses, and malty goodness are about as good as it gets. Almost don’t want to drink it. Yeah right...the same delightful notes carry through into the flavors. The mouthfeel is creamy and perfectly under-carbonated. I could drink this by the gallons. My only conceivable complaint? Could be a little stronger. But, that’s silly.

zimbo (738) - SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2015
Dark brown with orange highlights. Nose of chocolate& dark fruits. On the palate figs more chocolate earth with an autumnal sous bois quality. Mealy and rich but not at all overly sweet or heavy. Balanced and supple. Gorgeously beautiful. Love it.

EvanFriend (372) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2015
Very malt heavy, as to be expected for the style. Flavors of wood, caramel, a small hint of smoke, and coffee. Good beer.

kajser27 (173) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 28, 2015
Dark brown with ruby hue, small but lasting beige creamy head. Aroma is of caramel malt, toffee, toasted bread, bready yeast. Taste is moderate sweet caramel, toffee, nuts, some dark fruit, toast, roasted and sweet bready finish. Alcohol very well hidden, a small amount of acidity in the nose and less in the taste. Medium to full bodied, bit creamy, medium carbonation.

Xstream (193) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2015
O man, this is one hell of a beer. Malty, rye with Caramel in a balance that’s just delicious. Rich, luscious sweet, but not too much. Great!
