2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Fairly clear coppery red pour with a creamy beige head that quickly shrinks to surface cover. Sweet malty nose has notes of toffee, dates, chocolate, nuts and raisins. Flavour is pretty similar, a little more roasty and the fruitiness takes a backseat to the nutty malt overtones. Alcohol is well hidden but the sweetness becomes a bit overbearing. Medium to light bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a lingering roasty, sweet finish. Rather simplistic overall and somewhat unbalanced in favour of malty sweetness. Drinkable but not the best example of this style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy copper brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, yeasty, crusty bread, brown sugar, and some planty, herbal hops. Flavor is caramel, toffee, butterscotch, light sweet corn, toast, doughy yeast, autolyzed yeast, bread crust, caramelized brown sugar, light earthy, planty hops and dull, spicy hops to the finish. Medium body, slightly chalky, creamy and chewy feel and moderate carbonation. Its a strange Doppelbock with tons of yeast character, but I liked it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cola brown with a 1 finger head into a Weihenstephan glass. Nose is heavy caramel & malt, some overripe banana, Vegemite. As others have said, the taste is very sweet - strong toffee, toasted malts, with some hints of Vegemite, light hops and peppery notes in the finish toning down the sweetness a little. Medium bodied. Possibly a little sweet overall but still very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Tiefes Goldbraun. Der Antrunk ist für einen Doppelbock überraschend schlank, dunkelröstmalzig und nicht zu karamelsüß. Noten von Holz, gerösteten Nüssen, Bitterschokolade. Erdiger fränkischer Hopfen sorgt für einen ausreichend bitteren Abgang. - Ein aromatischer Doppelbock, der weder süß noch pappig und trotz des großzügigen Ethanoldepots auch nicht spritig ist.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a dark and hazy reddish brown with a thin but lasting white head and really nice lacing. Aroma is strong chocolatey butterscotch, with light berry and grassy notes. Quite complex and interesting. Taste is strong and boozy sweetness with a touch of astringent bitterness. Finish is big and malty, with even carbonation and a little bit of a prickle from the booziness. Very nice beer, would happily drink it again.
