gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2007
From bottle courtesy of Immy. Copper pour with ring of off white foam. Nose is vegetable malts with sweeter malt in the flavor. Not too bad, but the nose really messes this one up.

Garrold (4651) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, deep copper red. Dense, bubble topped, cream coloured head. Nose has fruited malt loaf. Well baked apple. Some caramel. Hint of almond. Taste is toffee sweet. Soft and foamy mouthfeel. Has a little vine fruit dryness towards the end, but stays mostly sweet throughout. Nice enough, but a bit sticky for me.

Xtoph (46) - AUSTRIA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle was in my beer advent calendar. Very nice bottle design. Appearance: Dark red liquid with some visible carbonation and a small white foam. Aroma: Malty with fruits (oranges). A bit of caramel and herbs. Also some dark fruits. Noticeable alcohol. Taste: Not too overwhelming sweetness with a subtle bitterness. Palate: Medium body with lively carbonation, creamy texture and a good finish. Overall: Balanced taste and some good aromas. I like the mouthfeel of this beer.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle. Grain, caramel, nuts, bread crust, sweetish with a light, herbal bitterness and nutty notes in the light dry finish. Tastes lighter than a doppelbock, more like a dunkler bock. And boy, does this one taste good.

Boca 0.5L ravno iz obećane zemlje..hvala predsjedniče...nakooon dugo vremena doppelbock po mjeri, tamna amber boja, odličan okus, alkohol se gotovo i ne osjeti u okusu ali zato se uši odmah za žare...

Clear dark brown colour with medium beige head. Aroma is sweet, hints of nuts, molases, malts and a slight roast coffee sensation. Taste is really sweet, a little bitter note at the end, malty and fruity flavored. Medium body and a bold alcohol sensation. Nice bock.
