MrHangover (2991) - Den Haag, - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. This pours a very dark brown with a nice layar of tanned head on top. Head leaves fairly quick, within two minutes or so. Very malty based aroma, earthy notes and a light, alcoholic smell to it as well. Flavour is spiced sweet, very full bodied, full of the earthy notes and even a bit of a roasty character, at least there is some burnt caramel and molasses in there. This is an awesome example of how a doppelbock should be in my honest opinion. Too bad I only brought one bottle..

erickok (4006) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 28, 2015
Glowing yet clean brown body and small yet stable head. Clean brown malts, biscuit and toast, nutty, herbal spicy hops. Really nice. Packs a huge amount of aroma for such a clean and moderate alcohol beer (for the style). Griany, roasty, unique. Prototypical lager yeast and really nice. Doesn’t need a thick body. Great autumn beer! (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

unclemike (2395) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Dark brown colour with flashes of ruby and a thick beige head. Aroma of earthy malt with toffee and chocolate. The same notes come through in the flavour (+ a bit of coffee as well), with a strong, sweet start and a smooth, mildly bitter finish

nihtila (1157) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
10.1.2014. Todella niukka vaahto. Tuoksu maltainen ja leipäinen sekä siirappisen makea. Tuoksun makea leipäisyys (limppu?) on ainakin läsnä, myös hentoa lakritsia ja suklaata. Suutuntuma melko täyteläinen ja pehmeä. Ei niin monimuotoinen kuin jotkut, mutta kaiken kaikkiaan kelpo suoritus.

Aroma is nutty, roasty, toffee and dark sugars, lightly smoky. Flavor is light sweet, malty, roasty, nutty, dried dark fruits, dark breads. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Really nice and a very pleasant surprise.
