DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 17, 2016
08-Jan-10 (500-ml bottle: Purchased 30-Dec-09 for $2.79 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA)
Aside from being slighlty lower in alcohol than the style calls for, this drinks very much like a doppelbock. Its sweet and very malty nose is loaded with chocolate, dark toast, and raisins. Deeply malty and very sweet on the palate, the beer offers a lot of chocolate, plus cocoa, prune, earth, brown sugar, dark toast, and lightly bitter roast. Full-bodied, almost syrupy on the palate, and fairly cloying after awhile. Carbonation is light-medium. Rich, medium-brown and ruddy tinted through the center with a golden edge and perfect clarity. The tan head pours rather small, barely peaking at a quarter-inch, before settling to a thin ring. Very yummy, but a bit too sweet, and it seems that this is a doppelbock with a lower attentuation level, hence the excessive sweetness and lower ABV.

330ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Metallic caramel first, later husky grains, even later milky. Slightly watery body, caramel, tastes like its strong. Finish a bit papery. A little bit of wallpaper paste. Deep down I like the caramel, but its not a good bock.

zenkis (807) - Ogre, LATVIA - AUG 5, 2013
Pours dark, deep copper reddish, clear, beige medium, fast cap, no lasing. On nose toasted malt with deep touch of caramel sweetness. Taste - sweet with bitter notes of darker malt, a minimal sour @ the end. Lively carbanated, medium+ bodied, thick-slick texture, long toasted bitter finish. Aftertaste - floury bitter. Tasty malt oriented German dark brew, I still like those too.

RyanE (145) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours dark brown and looks like a less carbonated Pepsi. Head is nonexistent. Roasted malt and slight coffee on the nose. Great mouthfeel and nice balance. More of the sweet malt balanced with the toastiness. Pretty easy drinking.

JK (5940) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle from Surdyks. Dark brown and a thin head. Some oxidation has occurred, but not enough to ruin the beer. Caramel and nuts, as well as dried fruit and malt. True to style, but without being a doppelbock, it is very flavorful and has a rich palate, on the thick and heavy side for a dunkler bock.

Brown and clear with a sticky head. Nutty, caramel nose. Medium to full bodied and loaded with sweeter malts. Layered flavors of caramel and roasted almonds. Sweet finish.
