Ungstrup (36408) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2004
A caramel brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and hints of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, alcohol, and an dry hoppy end. An OK beer but nothing special.

Bottled. Very deep rubyish brown colour, small beige head. Aroma is caramel, wood, some mild herbal notes as well as bready and quite biscuity notes as well. Flavour is caramel, some fruits, wood and mild alcoholic notes. Too sweet in the flavour to be really enjoyed. Otherwise rather nice.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, orangey brown with a small, off-white head. Sweetish, malty caramelish nose. Very solid and potent body with lots of caramel and roasted malt. Very powerful although the alcohol never becomes too much or dominating. Very discreet hoppiness. Quite a nice Doppelbock. 050206

omhper (24616) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2002
Nut brown. Sweet with above average body, toffee aroma, chewy malt. A good doppelbock, but less malty and complex than the prime examples of the style.

fiulijn (20218) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2004
Amber color, brown hue; poor head. Light, strange aroma, with some caramel. Some sweetness, a lot of charamel and a terrible lack of character (but not of strength).

Koelschtrinker (19394) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Der Inhalt der Flasche überrasvht erst einmal, da das Bier bis 2 mm unter den Plopp Verschluss reicht und so bei nur leichtem Schütteln schon spritzt ohne Ende. Der Geruch ist würzig und ich rieche mal wieder spuren von Soja, was mich jedesmal an meinen Geruchsnerven zweifeln lässt. Im Glas riecht es dann eher alkoholisch. Den Alkoholgehalt schmeckt man während des gesamten Verkostungsprozesses nicht heraus, für mich positiv. Antrunk und Mittelteil sind zwar recht würzig, wirken aber durch den geringen CO2 Anteil und den wie schon beschrieben nicht schmeckbaren Alkoholgehalt für einen Doppelbock ziemlich mild. Im Nachgeschmack weicht die Würze langsam einem röstmalzigen Aroma. Für einen Doppelbock bestimmt zu mild, für mich aber ein sehr gutes Bier. Test vom 3.12.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,13,12,11,12,13 - 12,40
