Pours a dark brown color with a off-white head. Has a sweetish malty caramel aroma. Sweetish malty caramel flavor with some fruity hints and bitter hoppy hints. Koelschtrinker (20205) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 18, 2012
Trocken hellmalziger Beginn. Geringe Süße, mit der Zeit wird das Malz dunkler und intensiver. Ausgewogen, leider auf niedrigem Niveau, das Bier könnte deutlich intensiver sein. Süffig, deutliche Getreidenoten. Nett, mehr nicht. 9/11/9/10/12/9

Bottle courtesy of bierkrug, thanks again for being my main supplier during this trip! Dark ruby reddish brown color, thin tan head. Aroma of lightly spiced butterscotch. Taste of burnt caramel or maybe creme brulee, but without an overbearing sweetness. One of the better bocks from this trip. ogivlado (7764) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 24, 2011

Transparent red/amber coloured, small off-white head, malty alcoholic nose. Sweet malty, light dried fruits and hint of spices with quite dry finish. Alcohol is too exposed. Expected better beer.

Poured a ruby-amber body with a small but persistent off white head. Ordinary malty, somewhat sticky sweet nose with light alcohol. Dryish grainy-toffee taste, (medicinal) alcohol-driven, very light cherries dipped in alcohol. Hop bitterness near the end and in the aftertaste. Odd overall, like a doppelbock version of a sake. Dry.
Thanks to Bierkrug for the bottle. Clear dark brown pour, minimal head. Very light malty aroma, but I’m not really getting anything else from it. Crisp mouthfeel, though the initial smoky taste smooths it out some. Smokiness turn into a dark bread flavor, without the warmth. Not too complex, but doesn’t have the sweetness I associate with dopplebock, so not bad Bierkrug (2129) - - NOV 30, 2010
300 ml bottle in Germany, thanks to shrubber85. A dark amber pour with almost no head. Aroma is formost alcohol, followed by some sweetness. Taste is candy sweet malt with a slight touch of maltiness. Palate is short sweet with a slight metalic burn. Not bad not great. shrubber85 (11322) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Sweet cherry/orange malt and light astringent aroma. Clear chestnut color with large tan head. Sweet light cherry malt and moderate astringency. Drinkable but very light especially style-wise. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2010
Bottled. A dark chestnut coloured beer with a small off-white coloured head. A sweet bready aroma with hints of leather. The taste has sweet fruity raisins and licorice. Full-bodied. Another sweet and tasty strong flavoured doppelbock
