500ml bottle. Clear chestnut brown pour, thick, but short-lived, off-white head. Aromas of malty caramel, toffee, maybe honey. All sugary stuff though. Taste brings a fruitier note. Clean finish. Pretty good.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Really good nose here. Very rich deep prune and brown sugar with a salivating meat quality. Deep dark glossy brown colour too which formed an easy dense thick smooth head which did mostly goes the distance. Rich dark chocolate on the palate ending with an earthy dryness. The feel is full but there are some overcurrents of fizziness but this doesn’t take away from its luxurious richness.

GreenJeremy (63) - Spruce Grove, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2014 Pours a very beautiful clear dark ruby brown with a medium head. The aroma is quite sweet, with malty toasts, cereals and dark fruits. The taste is sweet as well from the malts, with just enough hops to balance them out. Very well done. Medium body, light to medium carbonation. All in all, a fantastic drinking experience.

westler (53) - Stuttgart, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle 500ml. My best german Doppelbock so far: dark coffee brown color, light brown head. Very rich dark malt aroma, a bit sweet. Full taste of dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate and liquorice. Light bitterness. Average carbonation, medium bitter finish, well hidden alcohol. Complex and beautifully composed beer.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Yoav. Clear dark brown with cream colour head. Sweet, grain then dried fruit and plum aroma, sweet, ripe fruit that becomes dry taste. Full body, smooth and grainy finish.
