A noble Doppelbock, which with more than 7% alcohol and 18% wort belongs to the strongest beers in Bavaria. This specialty owes its color to the large amount of barley malt and its smoothness to the five-week lagering at 2 degrees Celsius. Strong and simply good!

0,5 l Flasche. Rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Röstaromen und Karamell im Aroma, geschmacklich dann nach dunkler Schokolade und Espresso. Für einen Doppelbock wenig alkoholischer Geschmack.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle pours a dark ruby color with lush, absurdly resilient beige foam after an aggressive pour. Smells of blackstrap molasses with edges of berry, vanilla and sherry (exactly two months past best-by date). Rich fruity-vinous sweetness, comforting alcoholic warmth in the middle middle, and a balancing bitterness that builds through the finish and lingers long with the alcohol. Medium-full body but far from syrupy. Very, very nice doppelbock.

danielecamo (839) - ITALY - SEP 24, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2015 In bottiglia. Colore marrone, piuttosto limpida con buona schiuma, non molto persistente. Aroma di malto, nocciola, caramello. Aroma piuttosto intenso ma monocorde, meno complesso di quanto ci si potrebbe attendere. al palato ritroviamo le stesse sensazioni, con un caramello quasi invadente. La birra risulta molte dolce, quasi eccessivamente dopo alcuni sorsi. Bock ben fatta ma piuttosto semplice.

Idiosynkrasie (6534) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing, mahogany colour with average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, tan dappled beige head. Dark malty aroma has notes of malt lozenge, rock sugar, caramel and spritz biscuits. Taste is bitter hoppy capped, the malt notes seem to be there but quite in a surpressed and undeveloped way, without space for an active game, sadly leading to a bitter almond accord. Has the field of excellence in optical range.

mile (3830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and light bread, light dark fruits and alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light bread with faint dark fruits, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, some caramel and faint bread, light - some alcohol. Sweetish doppelbock with caramel. 7,1% makes the finish bit drier. Finish has bit too much alcohol considering the body.
