A 0.5L bottle shared at One Point Pub (BB 30.04.09). Pale beige head. Dark coppery colour. Malty and roasty taste. Mild hoppiness. Slight dissapointment. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2008

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2008
Rich orange, no head. Not much aroma; sweet malts I guess. Quite an alcoholic kick, but a big malty body. A touch of mustard. Overall, not too boozy, but definitely strong. Pretty estery - I would say this falls easily into the European Strong Lager category, rather than Doppelbock. Finish is quite hoppy.
A clear dark amber colored beer, with a small beige head. The aroma of caramel, fruits and alcohol. The taste is caramel sweet, with fruits and some bitter. The aftertaste is alcohol warm with a bitter flavor, which gets stronger. mjs (7266) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2008
(Bottle at One Pint Pub, Helsinki, on 2008-11-10) Pale amber. Clear. Small quickly disappearing white head. Malts and some alcohol in nose. Full bodied palate with little carbonation. Malts, vegetables, bitterness, sweetness and salty liquorice in taste. Bitter and malty aftertaste. Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2008
An orangey golden bock with a thin off white head. Solvent like mlat aroma with light banana and cloves. In mouth, a chalky malt with light peaty notes, cramel, medium bodied. On tap at In de Wildeman, Nov. 2006. Borresteijn (7047) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2008
On tap. Amberbrown, white head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Flavour is very malty sweet, sticky. Very slight bitterness in the end. Too sweet. kappldav123 (6100) - GERMANY - JAN 18, 2008
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Aroma not dry, a little bit hoppy. The beer is somehow hard and not strong, every special is missing. Only an average doppelbock.
