Sampler from bottle. Big and rich malt flavor with light chocolate notes to it. A nice change to an authentic doppel after sampling a Leinieís Big Butt. This one has a deep brown color, and finishes very hearty. This is the kind of beer thatís conjured to mind when reading about the brews those monks drank to get through Lenten fasting.

Red-black body with a light white head. Coffee and peet dominate the aroma with sweets and honey to compliment. Excellent taste based on caramel and suggar. Very clean ending.

Dough, brown sugar, dark fruit in the nose. Murky orange-brown stuff with a thin head. Big malty palate with a bit of alcohol there and some grainy notes. Finishes with a grainy-sour feel. Nice experience.

"I love doppelbocks. Poured a brown color with a nice head, with not much lacing. Aroma was malty, and of dark fruits. Mouthfeel was a little bit creamy. Very good beer. "

Chocolatey aroma, light turd brown in color, head is off-white but there isnít much and what ther is doesnít stick around for too long. Wonderful malty chocolate/heavy fruit flavor. Finishes nice, just enough bittering hops to balance the huge maltiness. Awesome beer. Thanks Roger.

Augustiner Maximator pours to a deep, bright, chestnut brown color with a creamy off white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is stunning. Deep, toasty, sweet malty, and nutty waves of aroma flood the nose. The palate is hefty, and chewy with big sweet malty flavors paired with more toasty and nutty character. This beer ends with more big malt up front, then is balanced with just enough hop presence so this beer isnít cloying. This is paired with a high octane, soothing, warming burn. Without a doubt one of the finest examples of dopple bock on the market today, and a true bench mark for this style. This beer is hard to find, but if you are lucky enough to find it here in America, snap it up, and as much as you can. Dopple bocks are rich, strong brews that will stand up to some age. You wonít be able to put too much age on it, as you will want to drink it. This beer is suited more for the colder months, but makes the perfect night cap, and would work well with deserts. I would pair this one with creme brulee, but would much rather enjoy this beer by itself. This beer truly is a "mash tun in a glass", an is a flawless example of dopple bock. I canít not praise this beer enough.

This beer pours a silky dark brown and leaves a sticky beige head that lingers in the glass. As I smell this beer I can really get the caramal a faint alcohol smell as well as the chocolate and a dark fruit essence. The taste is slightly sweet with a def bitter chocolate malty presence and a finish of hops and alcohal. I can also feel a sense of warmth as this beer flows down the throat. This is a decent brew that has a great finish and is pretty balanced. Although could be better for the style and price.

Bottled. Dark brown colour. Light brown head. Wonderful chocolatey tone in aroma. Vineous backbone with bitter chocolate in the finish. Very very flavourful!

500ml bottle: Iím surprised to see that this beer has so many ratings. Purchased in Germany. Nice aroma of bubblegum, soy sauce, dark fruits. Medium sized beige head. Rich malty flavor with some soy sauce, lots of chocolate, raisins, plums. A cornucopia of flavor here. The finish is lightly bitter and fairly quick. This is a damn good beer. My wife even likes it. I wonder why it took me so long to drink it. Itís been in my fridge for over a month.

Pours dark amber with a mostly receding tan head. Aroma of sweet caramelized wort, raisins, plums, toffee, and gingerbread. The taste highlights the spectrum of kiln treated malts, from the lightly toasted crystal to the roasted chocolate. Mouthfeel is heavy and slighty sticky with lush carbonation. The innermingling layers of malt create a sticky vinous quality that makes this a truly unique beer. This beer is a suitable replacement for bread.
