UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Poured from 330 ml bottle. Dark reddish color with beige head that fades quickly to a thin layer.
Sweet aroma of dark, roasted malts. Also some dark fruits, plums, raisins...
Taste is slightly bitter upfront, just a bit of sweetness somewhere in the middle. Aftertaste is even more bitter. Just dark, roasted malts in the taste, no fruit at all but cannot say I don’t like it.
Medium body with light carbonation. Alcohol is present but not offensive in any way.
Overall this is a decent Doppelbock. Not as complex as others and not very balanced but it’s not a bad beer. If you like roasty and malty beers that lean more towards the bitter side, you’ll like this one. hawanna (3291) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2014

In short: A typical, clean and very malty big brown lager. DecentJorisPPattyn (9929) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2011
How: Bottle 330ml at one of the good Romania beer bar (100 De Beri, Die Stube, Fusion, other…), I forget which one, it was available at many
The look: Clear mahogany body with red highlights topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is typical malty brown lager with toasted nutty notes. Taste is clean but on the heavy side. Toasted whole-wheat brown bread covered by caramel and toffee, notes of roasted almonds and tree bark. Alcohol is not really a factor. All in all a typical example of the style. A decent beer I’ve had better from this brewery. Overall I was very impressed by this relatively unknown german brewery available all over Romania, and thankfully I had my wife with me to order my beers for me because unlike me my wife can understand what a waitress says when she speaks Romanian or speaks a perfect English and has large breast.
Small beige head over deep red-ruby beer. Sweet, chestnut, marzipan, dark bread, autumn leaves. Sweet, faint point of saltiness, hints at oxidation, bready and leafy. Alcohol, with a huge restsugarcontent, reinforcing each other. Alcoholwarming, quite slick and a bit sticky. Typical Doppelbock, bit oxydized sample, but still perfectly OK. Thanks to Stef!
