Bendrixian (1505) - Canadiana, Ontario, - APR 29, 2012
big creamy brew sporting tan coloured head & has dark redish/brown color that is slightly pink.Big aromas, chocolate, dry grains, cereal, ketchup chips. Ive been told it reminds somebody of dry dog food, in a really descriptive way, so im going with that. Has a boozy taste, and simply one of the more complex brews ive ever had the chance of tasting. flavours start with a boozy, chocolate and creamy flavour but finishes slightly bitter. so amazing!

drpimento (3223) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Excellent doppelbock! Aroma is roasty malty toffee caramel. Flavor is like nose, more bitter than sweet, has a long bittersweet finish, great carbonation. Not something to drink fast and a good beer to share.

BlazerT (597) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - OCT 29, 2016
Bottle 0,75 L. Sensoric. Deep brown, maggoty with big, dense, light brown head. Very good head retention and lacing. The aroma starts strong - malty (molasses, caramel, syrup, grainy), dried fruits (mainly plums), toffee, some roasted tones, light boozy notes. Taste is nice and complex at first malty semi-sweet, but in contrary to semi-bitter notes - partly tannin like, partly hoppy. Full body, thick and creamy texture, average carbonation, finish is malty with touch of roasted notes, along with some bitter character. In general this beer contains all dark beer goodies is quite powerful in its maltiness, but neither boring not mild. Im not really fan of this style, but this one is definitely worth trying.

zenkis (799) - Ogre, LATVIA - OCT 21, 2016
Tasted this last years summer, bottle.
Very excellent, easy drinkable doppelbock. Alco indeed well hidden, but some warming experience. Clean and complex maltiness without any evidence of carrot like offlavors or too much dextrin. Well rounded and enjoyable. Medium to full bodied, not thick as liquid bread.

Piwo pięknie pachnące wisniowka, czerwonym winem i leśnymi owocami. W smaku sliwka wegierka, trochę nut cherry, alkohol obecny ale szlachetny, rozgrzewający i o długim finiszu. Karmel czekolada i wanillia. Troche zbyt słodkawe ale ogolnie wielka przyjemność z degustacji tego degustacyjnego piwa.
