Complex aroma with various malts. Color is a deep dark brown with a ruby one to it. The head was small and disappeared quickly. Deep rich taste with a slight bitterness to it.

monk191 (874) - California, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Very very malty. Pours a deep brown-black with a tan head. Smells of roasted nuts, molasses and post-boiled malts. Taste is very malty, with some nuttiness, and an almost too sweet finish. Had in the bottle.

djoeye (1380) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
Beige foamy head. Dark red brown about clear body. Lacing lacings. Aroma; chocolate, sweet mocca coffee, crystal brown sugar, floral spices, yeast, apple, pear. Taste; dark sweet caramel, flourish dusty hops, cocoa, megnut, mocca coffee. On palate nice. Finishes still sweet in the dark brown caramel way, with some hops mixed into. Overall decent brew, and a nice supper sipper. [33cl brown btl 6.9%abv BB17.07.14]

Schnabelhund (67) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2014
Asam Bock pours clear dark reddish amber and sports a tan head of medium lifetime. The nose is pretty reserved for a doppelbock, with scents of dark dried fruits, dark bread, and a hint of sassafras root. The flavor is pretty straightforward and slightly less nuanced than other doppelbocks playing in the same league, being primarily malty-roasty and darkly fruity from the front to mid-palate and ending in a semi-sweet roasty bread crust finish. The texture is thick and creamy and the carbonation is pretty soft. Nice one.

nearbeer (3660) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2014
500 ml. Pours a deep, clear mahogany color with a lasting film of cream. Aroma is dates, chocolate, a hint of dark grape and some spicy dry grass. Taste is the same great mix. Medium body has a great balance, and is soft and smooth with a low carbonation.

BLADT (577) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2014
From bottle. Black pour with off white head. Consistent lacing all the way down. Damp and sweet smelling. Lots of malt notes offset with light ash and smoke. Dull chocolate and candied fruits. Taste is cut from the same cloth. Generally sweet (but never cloying): candied fruits again, molasses and mild roastedness. Medium bodied. Chocolaty finish. Very good. Never overreaches.

AlainG (1175) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
Elle est brune, aux reflets rouge, ayant une mousse beige, crémeuse et soyeuse qui se tient en place. Des arômes de fruits secs, de miel, de mélasse, de pain aux bananes avec un bel éventail d’épices. J’ai une pensée pour de bons carrés aux dattes. Le goût est fidèle aux odeurs, où le caramel vient parfois faire un tour. Les épices semblent moins précises et formeraient plutôt un tout épicé. Au tournant de certaines gorgées c’est herbacé. Plaisir gustatif incontestable. M.A. 05-08-2014 (1132-300614)

Pinball (10765) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2014
Dark brown beige head. Wheat roasted malts and caramel in the aroma. Flavor is hard roasted malts brown sugar toffee burnt caramel. Very hardcore for a German, flavor resembles a Belgian dubbel

Lemke10 (768) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 9, 2014
This pours a dark brown color with a thick, foamy beige color. The aroma is very bold with malts. The taste is sweet, complex, and malty. There is a decent amount of carbonation mixed in with the hints of fruit and dried fruit. Very interesting taste and quite well made.

BitchPls (542) - FINLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Cola black beer with a big beige head. Sweet liquorice and ash on the nose. Loads of malts as this tastes like the Finnish easter food called mämmi. Some coffee notes too. Medium carbonation, thin to medium body. This is a really nice bock.
