Bottle. Black colour with brown reflexes. Nose is not very intensive. Mouth is dried cherry and prune. Medium sweetness, not bitter. Soft carbonation. Not very impressive. rich8880 (83) - - DEC 28, 2017
Black colour, strong head. Fruit / licorice aroma. Wow - that tastes nice. Licorice,roasted malt, sweet taste but underlined by a might bitterness which balances the beer beautifully. Good on the palate - medium/full body, creamy texture, and a beautiful long finish. A good beer. miki74 (192) - Sabadell, SPAIN - DEC 26, 2017

Rubin gleboki dosc klarowny w refleksach piana gesta wysoka i trwala. W aromacie susz slody i karmele nienachalne wyważone. Intensywnie, ulozone bogate. W smaku wyrazny karmel, syrop cukrowy, cukier trzcinowy, w polaczeniu z ukrytym alko daje ladny rumowy posmak na finiszu jakby przydymiina sliwka. Tez bogato i wyraźnie. Polecam choc moglby byc mniej ulepkowy. JNyberg (15) - - DEC 24, 2017

Bottle, three months before bbd. Pours deep dark chestnut, with a big creamy off white head receding to finger thickness. Aroma is dark roasted malts, with bread, leather, dark chocolate and wood. Creamy body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is dark roasted malts, with burned wood, bread, leather and dark chocolate.
Rich dark brown ruby in the glass with a decent light brown head. Big big roasted malt aroma. Rich malty taste. Not too sweet, just a hint of bitter. Malty, all the way through. Not syrupy at all like many bocks I've tried. This is outstanding. MonsterMagnet (1695) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2017
Bottle, pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is quite malty with chocolate and toffee, and a bit herbal. Taste is roasty with chocolate, toffee and a bit of coffee, raisins, elderberries, burnt sugar and herbs. Sweet, but not overly sweet, a hint of sourness, quite full body, average carbonation. Excellent balance. I know I had this a few years back and I wasn't impressed, I'm glad I revisited it. beikes (174) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2017
The King of Doppelbock? Maybe so.. Very malty and lots of roasted barley and a full flavor of toffee and hints of french nougat. This is really a manly beer, and a meal on it's own. One of the fullest tasting brews I've ever had! 2OLD4BS (24) - west windsor, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2017
Best German dark beer I have ever had. Always on point. Smooth it never disappoints. It is very well put together. Those Germans know how to build cars and make beer. Enjoy!
