bartzluke (483) - Oklahoma, USA - DEC 9, 2015
,5l pour from refrigerated bottled into stemmed lager glass in Kazakhstan. Pours a ruby brown, mostly opaque, with a fizzy light-tan head. Nose is sweet and pleasant-- brown sugar, caramel, plums, raisin, maybe a bit of nuttiness. Body is medium; mouthfeel is oily. A bit fizzy. Taste is far on the sweet side. Fruity, with cherry notes dominating the front on. Those gives way to other dark fruits-- plums, raisins, and fig. Some matliness in the background. Dry all around. Moderate bitterness and only a hint of an alcohol bite on the end. I suspect it may grow more prominent as the beer warms, however. A little off balance in flavor, but overall a sweet and enjoyable dessert beer.

SinH4 (1595) - Garching, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2015
Dark brown color with ruby highlight and a big beige head. Aroma is nutty, malty, caramel, molasses, also some fresh fruits. Taste is toffee, caramel, nutty, with some vanilla and wood, maybe a slight booze sting, but I wouldn’t call it sweet. Oily mouthfeel, but with carbonation. A truly amazing Doppelbock.

500 ml bottle poured. Pours black with a slight red tint to it. Dark fruit heavy aroma, with raisin, plum, grape, and a little spice. Flavor has a cherry, raisin front, with a roasted brown sugar background. Toasty in the finish, with a lingering sugar sweetness. Sometimes when my curiosity takes me around to a new style, I accidentally pick up one of the highest rated Doppelbocks, and quite enjoy it in the process.unique beer with a ton of character. Very enjoyable.

Wonderful aroma of prunes, berries, chcolate chip cookie malts. Sweet malts then some bitterness. Not a heavy beer in terms of body and mouthfeel bit it will rock you. Finish is dry, floral, and kind of boozy. My kind of beer.
