Dark amber beer with a thick foamy light tan head that lasts a long time. Nose of roasted nuts, brown sugar, and sweet vanilla. Flavor is similar with almonds, caramel, and sweet grain finished with a mild somewhat fruity bitterness. Pretty good, but the the combination of flavors is a bit strange. rejtable (2819) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2017

Demens (479) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 18, 2017
0,5l bottle. Clear deep copper/ruby colour with slowly shrinking off-white head. Aroma: Intense caramel, chocolate, coffee with slight honey, sweet cheese notes. Taste: Sweet rich malty start (with some dark fruits) with a hiding but noticable sour (bread and red wine) tone in a softly bitter mouthfeel. Well balanced and has a light oily/butterish texture too. Medium/full body with medium carbonation. Long, gently sour and bitter and a little bit dry finish. Delicious doppelbock.

Ar: Pungent, almost sharp, munich and caramel malts; herbal and dank hop character. Ap: Deep red-amber, clear; medium-large tan head with good retention, leaves a ring of foam and a large splotch of covering. T: Sweet melanoidin-rich malt up front, though it becomes a bit flabby, somewhat oxidized with a sherry note and stale nougat quality; a bite of alcohol, with a pronounced nail polish flavor; low bitterness, a bit of a herbal character; caramel and toasted malt on the finish; slightly astringent hop flavor carries through to the end, with licorice and black currant accents. P: Medium-full body with medium carbonation, finish is medium-dry. O: The sweetness and malt richness are fairly promising, but the beer does not deliver on the promise--from the nail polish flavor to the astringent bitterness to the oxidized maltiness.
