From tap at Salon Piva, Bratislava. Clear dark brown color with a beige head. The aroma is malty, sweet with caramel, brown sugar, ripe apples and pears. Medium to full body with a medium to medium-heavy sweetness and a light bitterness. Flavor of lightly roasted malt with notes of caramel, cacao, honey, ripe fruits, brown sugar and some noticeable alcohol. silencifobic (52) - Sabadell, SPAIN - APR 25, 2017

Caña en Cimmeria 22..04..2017. (r3701). Color rojizo caoba oscuro, reflejos rubíes oscuros con espuma beige que se queda en corona fina al poco. Sabores tostados maltosos y cereales con toques ligeros ahumados caramelos tostados y ligeros regalices. Cuerpo ligero a medio de 6.7 vol con ligera sensación alcohólica seca y muy suave amargo final entre tostado y ahumado. Bastante buena refrescante y fácil de beber. Para repetir. meccahh69lol (193) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - APR 21, 2017
I have had a few doppelbocks in my time and never really glommed onto them cause they were always too gloopy and cloying, but this one is far from that! It pours a rich black and the nose is a malty deep dive. The flavor is impressively smooth, somewhat dry, slightly sweet, and very well balanced with just the right amount of smokiness. Plus the bottle is covered in goats and you get a cute little plastic goat knickknack to cherish till the end of days (coming very soon! lol). Good for jamming to some sweet Jerry jams from 77 before endeavoring upon an evening of cuddles and audio-visual entertainments! matzou (188) - SPAIN - APR 20, 2017
Brown body with Ruby hue, 1 finger white head disappearing quickly.
Aroma is some chocolate, light roastiness, some sweet tones, fruitiness.
Sweet opening, balanced afterwards. Very good finish.
Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel.

Had the beer as part of the Saveur Bière easter set. The beer looks delicious. The color of the beer is a very dark brown. On the naked eye it almost looks black. A strong light reveals a nice nice dark amber glow. Nice. On top of the beer a nice rough layer of greyish-brown foam. The majority of the foam collapses rather quickly, leaving a thin drape. Nice.
The smell of the beer is also nice. It is a proper bockbier. I smell nice rather sweet malt aroma’s, a bit bready even. There is also a nice aroma of syrup, plums, caramel and toffee and some alcohol. The smell is very warming. The smell is quite sweet, because of the strong lovely malt aroma’s, but there also is a nice slight bitterness of the hops. I also smell a nice yeasty touch, giving a certain doughiness. The smell of the beer gets stronger after the beer warms up. Where it was quite mild at the start, it is very warming and rich at the end.
The taste of the beer also is nice. It contains a lovely warm maltiness. I taste plums, dark fruit, toffee, syrup, brown sugar and caramel. It tastes very full. I like the nice bitter hoppy touch. Not clear hops, but a nice bitter touch to break the mainly sweet flavours. The beer also contains a nice alcohol flavour. Very nice flavour. It is rich and sweet and full. Even though the beer is mainly sweet, it is not to sweet. The hop bitterness is able to balance out the sweetness perfectly. Very well done. I understand this beer is number one in its style.
The palate of the beer is nice. Full body, smooth texture and a nice medium high bitterness. The finish is nice, and contains a lovely alcohol warmth and a nice hoppy bitterness, to balance out the sweets an extra time. Very well done.
