KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a semi-transparent medium brown with an orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) cream colored frothy head that dissipated quickly to a small amount of residue which produced some poor lacing. The aroma was of a toasted light bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, caramel, dark fruit (cherries and plums) and also had a mild nuttiness to it. The taste was lightly sweet with a note of toffee early on and then had a nice bold maltiness come on board with notes of caramel, dark fruit and an ever so mild taste of alcohol. The flavor hung around for only a short while with a sweet fruity taste that was left to fade away rather quickly. Mouthfeel was just above light in body and had a kind of watery texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall a brew that was quite easy to drink and had a nice malty fruity flavor...

[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Soft, slightly strong nuances of malty nuts, some plum, caramel and bread. Balanced. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with malty dried dark fruits. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, good quality product though nothing special. 6 3 7 3 15

Daboch (245) - 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 (256) - 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.

floydslip (428) - 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.

4.1
Demens (518) - 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.

3.1
Jabic (733) - 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.
