11.2oz bottle, code on back reads 2213293. Clear amber / orange color. Good one-finger khaki head. Fades to a decent-sized ring around the edge, but doesn’t leave any lace. Bigger body. Soft, smooth carbonation. More dry texture. Sweet taste (indeed, not cloying), and about the amount of booze taste you would expect from 11% ABV. Though there isn’t any bothersome burn or bite for me, just a nice bit of warmth. After taste has kind of an Eastern European malt liquor feel to it, though. Not much to the aroma, though. Just a caramel sweet and nutty malt flavor, kind of a sherry aroma. Light tropical fruit notes. Solid eisbock
Pours light brown with a thin head. Aroma is caramel, fruit and lactose. Taste is sweet fruit, light caramel and clove. Finish is dominated by alcohol burn. Doesn't disguise booze well, but an interesting beer. vinivini (3009) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 23, 2017
Straight from can. Pleasant aroma. Honey malts, melon-like esters. Medium to full body. The taste is rather sweet. Malty. Boozy. Estery. Light bitterness. OK. WillemsUrenkel (2021) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2017
0,33 l bottle from Getränkefeinkost, Lüneburg. Dark red brown with a small head. Sweet alcoholic smell. Taste is very smooth for its abv. Sweet malt, shy hop. Still warming. Low bitterness. High drinkability for 11% abv. Great stuff. Grumbo (3978) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2017

Pours amber with light off-white head. Aroma is caramel, hay, some berries, alcohol, raisin, some fat, light toffee. Taste is creamy, thick, alcohol, sugar, some berries, warming, liqueur, fat. A lot of alcohol in aftertaste. Drinkable, but not the whole bottle. GSAP (757) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2017
Olie-achtig in de mond, alcohol brandt in de huig en een licht verslavende sherry smaak, wat voller zelfs. Aroma van een goedkope 15% drank, en smaak kan dat niet geheel wegspoelen. Rustig drinken, maar lang genieten is het niet. loscovar (723) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 19, 2017
Bottle from supermarket. Really strong duppelbock, i was surprised but i kind of like it nybol (2348) - DENMARK - JUL 10, 2017
En stærk smag, meget bitter. God smag, men ikke en man skal have mere end en af. davedrinkinbeer (25) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2017
A very strong doppelbock. I am amazed that this is not considered an eisbock, but still a good beer. Sweet beginning at the mouthful, then alcohol warmth comes across. Minimal carbonation, and is definitely a sipping beer.
