LoFi (1763) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle, best before 170810. Dark reddish brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma: sweet malt, raisins, just a tiny hint of buttered corn. Taste: raisins, dried fruit, warming alcohol, very malty, not exactly port I guess, but vinous. Full-bodied, almost moussy. Nice and warming. gopherfan99 (2012) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2015

Aroma of fruits and roasted malt, pours a dark amber with a thin light-brown head. taste of spices, caramel, roasted malts, alcohol. Nice and creamy, with a medium sweet finish JorisPPattyn (10121) - BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2004
Beautifully clear, darker chestnut with appetising dark-yellow head. Perfumed, bready nose, sweet nuts, even raisiny, malty to the quadrate. Sweet, but with a slight tart (herb) touch that eases off the worst sweetness. Full-bodied, slick and oily MF. It’s more interesting than most Bocks, but one misses that extra complexity a top-fermenting yeast would have given to such a technically superb beer. Emil (6064) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle. Ruby colour with a small beige head. Light caramel malty, raisin, light alcoholic aroma and taste. Medium to full body with a sweet light alcoholic finish.
ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Swing-top. Thick grapey aroma, sweet, alcoholic, rasiny, caramelly. Muddy ruby pour with a light brown creamy head. Super thick and malty, alcoholic, sweet, caramel, sugary fruitiness, plums, medium roasted malt, bread, balance...dry hoppy fruity finish. Not quite cloying, but a sipper nonetheless. Aftertaste is powerful and long, dry. Good one, much maltier than expected, and less bockish. MiP (16055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2008
Bottle at ÅBF08. Roasted, sweet malt aroma. The flavour also has some roast, sweet malt. Good alcohol level. Clear brown colour. No head. Nice hint of lagering. arepeejee (3) - , South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2008 does not count
Smallish head, but big on taste.
Perhaps too drinkable.
This beer was found in the DRAM SHOP, SHEFFIELD. Fin (11069) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2012
Think that I picked this bottle up from Getrenmarkt, Garmisch, Bavaria, Germany, consumed at home Sunday 28th July 2012 Pours ruby reddy coloured edging toward brown with an off-white head. Thick in the pour and in the mouth, toffee, caramel, smooth, sweet and big alcohol kick, this is the sort of German beer that Craig would totally approve of, it’s right uo his street.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2017 330 ml served in abbey glass. Dark brown, beige small head. Toffee, roasted malty aroma, dried fruits. Quite bitter for Doppelbock, sweet hint, slight metallic taste. Alcohol taste is strong and warm, but acceptable. Soft carbonated, full body, creamy oily texture. Bitter aftertaste. This beer has character and is definitely different from the better known Doppelbock beers.
