i really liked this beer. pours med amber color with nice head that sticks around fairly well. flavor is slightly hoppy, spicy, lots of caramel malts. alcohol is noticable, but not overpowering. Ungstrup (37231) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2009
Bottled. An amber-orange beer with a tan head. The aroma is sweet with nots of caramel, nuts, and alcohol. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of caramel, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing. dslunsford1 (55) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Yo, my buddy and I snagged a handle of this from our local brewery. I threw mine in a pint glass, from which I could clearly distinguish the faint aroma of toffee, caramel, and Land-O-Lakes butta. The taste was smooth, yet somewhat refined. My main man demonstrated this refinement by pouring his into a ceramic teacup and "raising the roof" at the same time he rose his pinky finger. There was a definite aftertaste, similar to when you get a bit o’ grass in yo Milwaukee’s Best 40-ounce. The most gnarly feature of this particular brew is the massive champagne bottle that she’s packaged in. This is definitely taking "center-stage" on my beer wall, next to the half-empty bottle of generic tequila and alcoholic energy drinks. The 8.5% is starting to kick in now, so I better finish this up before I have to drive ho......... wetherel (1880) - Cupertino, California, USA - JAN 10, 2009
2007 vintage 750mLish at Ale Atlanta. Awesome. I’ve been wanting to try this for a while, but I didn’t want to spend any money on it. Amber color. Malty aroma. Hint of alcohol. Lightly sweet. Not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Should be rated blind to be fair. Decent. jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2009
I paid almost $22 for this 1qt 14.5 fl oz bottle at a liquor store Roseville, MI. Pours hazy tan-yellow with a very nice soft fluffy head. Smells of caramel, molasses, and corn syrup. Tastes of caramel, honey, molasses, and some grassy hops. Very nice creamy, sticky mouthfeel, and nicely carbonated. A slow warming alcohol. Very rich bock flavor. Tastes very German. Was this beer worth the price I paid?...not really. Is it worth trying?...Absolutely.

caramel tastes with plum, fig and prune in this farmfresh malt brew. 2007 year the beer is basically brown and is refreshing with little sense of alcohol. nice appropriate sweetness this beer as one might expect is not overdone yet the total package is complex enough to intrigue. a totally interesting and tasteful doppel i am mildly surprised. thank you Vincent. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2011
(12oz bottle) clear deep copper, ring of white bubbles. Nose of light metal, rich caramel and dark fruits. Taste is toasty, grain, caramel, light oxidation, soft carbonation, a bit of an old linger but actually good overall! Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Vintage 2007 - what a treat. Pours clear amber with a light, tan cream head. Nicely oxidised in the aroma, with present caramel and bread. Medium sweet flavor with sugary bread, caramel, aged fruits, figs, dates. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary, syrupy finish with more oxidation, toasted grainy bread, leathery fruits, dates, berries. Pretty solid on the whole. fonefan (48622) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2008

Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (300508)
2006 bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a thin white head that slowly fades. Taste is of caramel, fruit, malt, honey and some hops. Rather sweet. The alcohol isn’t noticeable, which is surprising. Similar aroma. A pretty respectable beer from A-B and well worth a try. Also I like the bottle. I’ll have to pick this up again.
