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. Zlotta (3184) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2016
0.5 l bottle from local ’trinkgut’, best before September 2016. Clear, dark amber with a medium large, slightly creamy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, moderately fruity aroma of caramel, treacle, raisins, prunes and brown sugar. Rather sweet, malty and a bit fruity taste of caramel, brown sugar, treacle, raisins and prunes, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Really well-balanced, round and quite intense Doppelbock. Tasty! User369532 (907) - - JUL 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2016 Bottle. Chestnut color, hazy liquid, white head. Smell of caramel. Aroma of honey, caramel, wheat. Heavy malty. Taste is medium heavy sweet, light bitter. Very good, but could be less sweet. ironprog (80) - Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours a muddy, medium brown, with a mocha head that dissipates quickly. Dark coffee and chocolate are the most prominent scents, with a slight hint of ripe banana underneath. It is medium-heavy in sweetness with flavors of coffee, caramel, and Kaluha. Full-bodied with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. The finish is mildly bitter and is where you really get a lot of the "alcohol" taste. Overall, I find this to be a great beer and don’t really have much to quibble about other than to complain that I don’t have another one waiting for me in the fridge. :) ForlornHope (510) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours amber-red with a pillowy off-white head that diminishes a bit. Aroma is bready, yeasty, with notes of marzipan and leafy hop. The taste is initially sweet, then a good balance of gentle bitterness follows. The malt is rich and fruity, with fruity backtastes and more leafy hop and marzipan to follow. The carbonation is gentle and each sip is more satisfying. For the strength, this is very drinkable. Nice.

Bottle.Reddish appearance with swing top bottle top opening.Powerful but not overpowering.First tried this one years ago before my ratebeer days and unlike a lot of thinks its a good now as it was then. Highly recommended. Fules (1183) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAY 3, 2016
Hatalmas, bézs habja percekig tart. Színe félbarna. Illata nem túl intenzív és csak a karamellt érzem benne haloványan. Az íze csodás, édeskés, karamelles-barnacukros, nagyon enyhe komlós keserűvel. Utóízében picit felerősödik a keserű, az édeskés ízek pedik tompulnak, ezzel egy kiegyensúlyozott epilógust hagy maga után. Az erejét végig érezni, de nem alkoholos az íze. Testes, nehéz sör.

Big sweet aroma of slightly boozy caramel. Syrupy but smooth. Really clean domimated by a nutty sweetness and booze which is delighting. Doppelbock in the vein of Salvator, but a bit smoother. Kinda one dimensional but a really great example of the style. Piw (1106) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - APR 1, 2016
2l Flasche. Klar und dunkelbraun mit großer Schaumkrone. Röstaromen. Malzig. Erfrischend. Durchschnittlicher Körper. Leicht süß im Geschmack. Alkoholgehalt ist gur versteckt. massingasetta (737) - München, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2016
For a doppelbock this is a really good and refreshing brew. The creamy head and has notes of sweetness and even light hints of fruit. A good beer and an impressive bottle in the large version.
