UPDATED: NOV 13, 2010 Thanks to Ramenen. Bottle: Looking at all the ratings I’ll have to re-try this one. A bit light and lacked character, boring.
Re-Rate: Great Beer!
Brown color with red shine and stable head. Malty Aroma with some special taste of red berries (plums?, black currant? Can’t really say). Good balanced sweetness with bitterness. Daboch (190) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 22, 2017
Ciemne herbaciano-wisniowego koloru piwo, niezła piana. Aromat słodowy z nutami palonymi. W smaku podobnie, głównie słod, posmak chleba, nuty palone, wyrazisty. Jeden z lepszych podwójnych koźlaków GregMooreNH (161) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2017 Pours dark gold with thick, foamy head. Aroma is of nuts and bread. Flavor is plum, with a slight hop bite that builds and dissipates to a creamy aftertaste. Enjoyable, drinkable doppelbock that is going to set the world on fire, but won't let you down. allmyvinyl (11069) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle at work thanks to Johannes. Pours clear ruby with a thin white head. Aromas are malty with a dried peel note. Raisins. Taste is sticky dried fruit. Clean finish. floydslip (424) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2017
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.

Bottle from Phil. Pours murky brown no head or lacing. Nose is fruity, syrup. Flavours are plums, raisins, brown bread. Taste light/med sweet, light bitter. Lightish watery body somehat sticky with low carbonation. Demens (498) - 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. Jabic (713) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 10, 2017
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.

Eye: Pours a amber to coke like color with a thick and regular bubbled beige head which dissipates rather quickly. TaktikMTL (7999) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2017
Nose: a beautiful mix between malts, hops and yeast, smells sweet and sour
Mouth: medium to thick texture, sweet, ripe bananas, sweet licorice, compote,
Palate: sweet and bitter at the same time, dark whole grain bread or even pumpernickel, a bit burnt, forest, cooked pepper, hazelnuts perhaps, raisins
Overall: super drinkable, very tasty and thick Doppelbock, complex in the finish
