Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2009
Mondial 2009. Dude pouring probably poured me 2/3 of the bottle for $4!! haha. Pours a slightly hazy woody brownish orange with a nice lasting big head. Aroma is nutty deep toasted malts, earth, light yeasty notes, ligth herbal hops, some paper and rope but good. Flavor is full big malts, munich, lots of toast, some earthy yeast, rope, light meatiness, and a warm bready biscuit-vienna malt character and a somewhat clean bittering finish. Smooth and pretty solid for a doppelbock.

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2009
2009-06-05. Very dark brown body is near black, modest beige head has a bit of lace. Aroma is mild but pleasant, moderate malts are a touch muted. Flavour is similar, with a sweet malty core, drier notes of malt in the finish is the lasting impression. (7+) Average plus palate. (3+) Simple but very enjoyable. Bottle at Mondial 2009, Montreal

Fred82 (2281) - Qubec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle, Mondial 2009. Dark brown with a medium sized fizzy head. Aroma is lots and lots of dark fruits, blackberries, raisins and a small hint of hops. Taste is raisins and black fruits. Quite sweet. Some alcohol but not much. Very good beer. Thanks to MartinT for the suggestion !!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle @ Mondial 2009. Aroma of roasted malt, lots of coffee too, deep auburn, small toffee head. Taste is tangy malt, roasted nuts, burnt toast. Medium bodied, full flavoured, bitterness is wild. Terrific!

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2009
My Bottom Line:
Chocolate and Munich malts galore form the base of this healthy cereal celebration, also developing toasted bread and caramel-coated raisins for this most satisfying Doppelbock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the dark brown with mahogany edges.
-Carbonation is rather soft and the body quite full, making for a nourishing mouthfeel.
-The underlying fruitiness is also redolent of dried cherries.
-Malts in a Fujizakura beer are always beautifully expressed, it seems.

From the bottle at the Mondial de la Bire.

Diogne (1207) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle. Dark black with no head. Aroma is malt, alcohol, metal, roasted malt and hops. Flavor is sweeter than expected with the aroma with a touch of corn and rice.

omhper (24794) - Tyres, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2009
Draught at Popeye, Tokyo. Dark mahogany colour, small head. Estery roasty oily nose with caramel dominating later on. Rather sweet, medium to full bodied with rounded, dense mouthfeel. Fairly low bitterness. Good, but not the best offering from Fujizakura.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - MAR 26, 2009
On tap at Craft Beer Bar...colour was pitch black with a creamy off white head. When I saw other people drinking this at the bar, I thought they were drinking stouts! Slight smell of caramel, burnt sugars, some floral hints. Taste was smooth and creamy and the finish was out of this world; certainly highlighting all the right aspects of a spring bock beer and adding their own little crafty touches (some vanilla in the finish). Very enjoyable.
