erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2013
Light brown body, almost headless, looks not very alive. Moderate aroma, specially for a Doppelbock, with light toasty and cookie malts, but not much power. Yeast is also too far in the back for my taste. Low carbonation and a thin body make it is boring, uninspired drink. Little sweetness, which could have been balanced with a spicy or bitter approach, but fails to do so. This brewer’s poorest so far I’ve had them.

Bottle @ Odense Tasting June 2013. Pours ruby amber with a small white head. Fruity and caramelly nose and flavor. Smooth and dry. Some vinousness. Decent. boddhitree (58) - Frankfurt, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2013
Drunk from a snifter at BrauKunstLive! 2013 Festival. The real WOW WOW was their Doppelbock. It was super süffig (drinkable)! Silky chocolate mixed with vanilla, with some pear or another fruit we couldn’t place. At 8.5% if felt strong in flavor but hid the alcohol bite well, a sign of a master brewer at work, IMO. I can see why this beer won the European Gold Star. On their site they call it the

ElDesmadre (3984) - Mikołów, POLAND - APR 29, 2013
Bottle, with many thanks to Quack-Duck. Nice hazelnut colour and very nice, fruity aroma. Like a cocktail of cherries, pears and apples embedded in caramel malt. A bit reminiscent of barley wines. Full bodied with a decisively fruity flavour. Soft and malty beginning with a slightly astringent, nutty and chocolatey, warming finish. Very harmonious, pleasant beer. The best doppelbock I’ve had this far.

It’s red mahogany with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of burnt sugar, light cheese, roasted malt and dark fruits. The sweet flavor has notes of caramel, raisins, preserved fruits, burnt sugar, roasted malt, alcohol, and the finish is slightly dry. laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2013
