This is about as close to what I imagine the ur-doppelbock should be as I can imagine. Thick and sweet. Mostly dark fruit, but has a nice amount of anise character, some molasses and coffee. Very sweet. Tried for the first time back in 2007. tgrtnr (282) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2017
500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown, almost no head. Nuts, grapes, bourbon/liquor, toffee, roasted malt. Malty sweetness and some bitterness. Boozy alcoholic. Full body. Flat carbonated, oily texture. Bad carbonation ruins this beer, maybe a bad bottle... BrewerySensei89 (1) - Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2017 does not count
I will leave the descriptions to others. When ever I’m in Germany I stop by the cloister and pick up a dozen bottles. 1.5 Euro a bottle. The best beer ever. Lager43 (54) - Watertown, Connecticut, USA - JUL 18, 2017
A wonderful full flavored malty beer. Great body and very smooth mouthfeel. Tastes almost as good here as at the monastery in Germany. Prost!

1 pint, 9 oz. bottle. Pour was dark brown/red, off white head. Aroma of dark fruit, malty, raisin. Taste was mild sweet, malty, caramel, nut. MatiF96 (259) - POLAND - MAY 24, 2017
Barwa ciemnobrązowa z czerwonymi przebłyskami. Obfita piana, dzięki której piwo bardzo ładnie się prezentuje. Złożony aromat, melanoidyny, ciemne owoce, skórka od chleba, karmel, melasa, nuta kawowa. W smaku dosyć słodko, dużo chlebowości, obecne także ciemne owoce, karmel, cukier kandyzowany. Piwo jest treściwe. Przypomina trochę quadrupla bez fenolowości. Generalnie całkiem fajne piwo, bogaty smak i aromat gripweed57 (2796) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2017
500 ml bottle. Copper color with a brief creamy beige head. Roasted malt nose has notes of caramel, figs, dark dried fruit and syrup. Flavor mirrors nose with additional notes of light chocolate and cane syrup. Chewy mouthfeel. Cloying sweet malty finish and aftertaste. migwell (366) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2017
Not my favorite style. Aroma of figs and caramel, flavor much the same. Large bottle poured into a tulip, twice... very flat indeed. Deep brown color, medium oily body. Sort of like lightly carbonated prune juice. Couldn’t take more than one of these sweet treats and had a hard time finishing the bottle. This brew is the opposite of complex and it’s rather disappointing.

Dark red with little brown head. Aroma is brown sugar, grapes, butter, some nuts. Taste is buttery and flat, a bit sweetness and roast bitterness. Thinbody. Hm.
