A Mes rate: Bottle from the Belgian Belly. Erm... pretty poor effort. Sweet and lifeless, nothing to shout about by any means.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 bottle from uto. Amber with spotty white head. Ornate lace. Nose of oranges and hops. Taste is of spicy cider apples, oranges and caramel. Finish is slightly metallic, but overall of sweet fruits. Creamy, medium body. Very drinkable. A nice moderate brew.

MoritzF (9564) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 9, 2007
(bottle, with thanks to bierkoning!) Almost clear, amber to copper colour with mid-sized, slowly lacing tanned foamy head. Moderately sweet, slightly dusty toast-malty aroma with caramel, subtle fruity (berries, dates) and noticeable alcoholic notes. Sweet flavour, medium body, smooth carbonation. Toast-malty taste with caramel and a subtle fruitiness; sweet, slightly spicy and bitter finish with a bit of alcohol coming through. Decent brew.

DerDoppelbock (22) - Aachen, GERMANY - OCT 1, 2006
An dieser Stelle ein großes Dankeschön an Joris, der mir dieses spezielle Bier für den März hat zukommen lassen! Ganz sanfter malziger, gewürziger Geruch. Das Mars Especial vermittelt einen stimmigen Eindruck, der nicht nur gute Aromen, sondern auch Balance zeigt. Hefig-fruchtiges Grundaroma, worauf sich die zarten Gewürznoten beziehen und dennoch die Ruhe selbst signalisieren. Die restlichen Aromen versuchen nicht schon die bestehende Ordnung zu toppen und bleiben auf dem gleichen Level. Feines Bierchen!
