gripweed57 (2146) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2017
From old tasting notes. Deep reddish brown color with a big creamy tan head. Splendid burnt caramel aroma. Big bittersweet toasted malt flavor with a spicy dry finish. Long complex lingering bitter aftertaste. A real mouthfeel. Very tasty and worthy of its style. Nice Belgian lace.

Low carbonation, brown color. Much brighter in color than many doppelbocks I’ve had. Very bready aroma, lacks some of the complex dried fruits of roasted tones I like. Quit strong with evident alcohol. Starts sweet and malty, but finishes quite bitter, much more than expected. I didn’t feel this one was up to snuff...could be because I like my doppelbocks with much lower bitterness.

glennmastrange (2828) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted, caramel and cereal for the malt, light herbs for the hops, moderate broth and leather for the yeast, with notes of toffee, tobacco, brown sugar and faint spice in the background. Head is large, creamy turning rocky, light tan with good slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky dark rusty brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and slightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a soft carbonation. Excellent Doppelbock with a bit more richness than others.

I bought this bottle in Munich during a short stay this winter, I drank it at home tonight before the lunch. In my opinion, it is a delicious doppel bock, well balanced, powerful taste in the mouth, we feel a bit that it is already at 8.1%. The body is brown and copper, average carbonation, thin foam. The taste is sweet, malty, ginger bread, a little smocked and a bit watery with a final a bit agressiv with the alcohol but it is definitely a good product.
