Bottled Wow! I couldn't believe I'd found one of the great beers of the world, but there it is, and without an "-ator" name on it! A very complex and captivating beastie. Looks almost like a stout, though I can see the brownish head from the underside. Big aroma of molasses, malt, and... blueberries, it seems, or maybe canteloupe. Taste has an up front bitterness that calls a stout to mind again, but then is replaced by roasted malt sweetness, lager yeast, woodiness and another fruit overtone. Finally, there's a smooth alcohol finish like a scotch and soda. Just incredibly pleasing all the way through.

Dark, deep, reddish-brown in color with a fantastic, thick and tan head. The aroma is moderately malty, with a clean, lager-aroma as well. Full in malt flavor. Earthy and slightly nutty, with a rich malt backbone. Excellent!

Flasche - sehr dunkles, rotstichiges braun, fast schwarz. Stabiler Schaum. Aromen von dunklem Malz, Trockenfrüchten. Trocken im Abgang. Sehr rund und süffig. Alkohol kaum wahrnehmbar und etwas gering für einen Doppelbock.
