Aggiebob (2683) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 12, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2020 Poured from a growler three hours after purchased. It had a dark reddish brown color with a nice off-white head that dissipated immediately. The roasted malt aroma contains notes of dark chocolate and coffee in the flavor profile. The finish was very smooth with only the slightest hint of sweetness. Excellent. bigben873 (331) - Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2020
UPDATED: APR 19, 2020 Such a classic doppelbock, hard to believe I haven't rated it before. It could use a little more maltiness to tally be awesome but it is a solid beer. Dorqui (3101) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 12, 2020
UPDATED: APR 12, 2020 Bottled 0,33L. Dark orange/brown color, light unclear aspect with medium foamy beige head of discreet resistance. Moderate heavy sweet aroma, notes od toasted, sugary alcohol, brown sugar, light roasted. Solid and fraught palate, warm mouthfeel with sugary and alcoholic impression. Long sweet/toasted and moderate bitter final. Sven1973 (1181) - GERMANY - APR 11, 2020
UPDATED: APR 11, 2020 Flasche bei Getränkefeinkost in Berlin. Trübes dunkelbraun-rot. Kein Schaum.
Aroma: Banane, Malz, dunkle Früchte, Trauben-Nuss-Schokolade, Pflaume, Bitterschokolade.
Sanfter öliger Antrunk. Moderat bis stark Süß, aber insgesamt dezent. Bitterschokolade, Kaffee, alles mehr im Gaumen als im vorderen Mundraum zu schmecken. Bitterkeit versteckt aber vorhanden und entfaltend.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2020 Doft av bränt socker. Smak av bröd och apelsin, eftersmaken känns balanserad där ingen smak överträffar den andra. MNAle (490) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2020 Aroma is sweet. Caramel, stone fruits, raisins, chocolate, hints of roasted malts.
Deep, dark brown color with ruby highlights, 1/2 inch tan head that recedes quickly to a bubbly cap and ring.
Mouth feel has a smooth texture with a moderate to full body and leaves a smooth coating. Some carbonation feel.
Taste fairly complex with stone fruits, peach, some bitterness (which seems to be from the roasted malts, like the bitterness from coffee), caramel, earthy and roasted in the background. The taste is dry, despite the sweet aroma. The middle has a moderate bitterness. The finish is fruit and caramel, roasted malts and mostly dry. The fruit aftertaste fades fairly quickly leaving the roasted malts and only a slight alcohol heat in the throat.
Overall, an excellent beer with an excellent flavor. narekami (20) - Yerevan, ARMENIA - FEB 29, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2020 An outstanding dark lager in the style of doppelbok. The full taste of beer is dominated by the tones of malt, framed by the nuances of coffee, fully revealed in the aftertaste. The aroma of beer is voluminous and expressive, with hints of malt intertwined in it. JefVerstraete (5165) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2020 Sweet, caramel, biscuits, toffee. Nice, medium sweet and well balanced doppelbock. multitasker (36) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 27, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2020 Aromas of malt, dark fruit, dough and wood. Matching flavour with smokey, toasty, and toasted notes. Medium body with mild carbonation.
Enjoyable, albeit not to my taste.
