Pours a deep, dark brown with a nice off white head and some good lacing as it goes down. Smell is rich caramel and toffee along with hefty amounts of figs, dates, and other dark fruits. Slight hint of nuttiness as well. Taste really brings the dark fruits forward along with caramel and some candied brown sugar. Mouthfeel is fairly full and nicely warming without really being boozy. Very nice drinkability. Other than Andechser, probably the best Doppelbock that I’ve come across.

Bottle. Poured dark brown with a thick beige head. Aroma of caramel malt and sweetness. Full flavour, caramel, and the tiniest bitterness. Malty finish. I loved this. JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
(on bottle) Clear dark red/brown, small, white head. Distinct aroma, very plesant; sweet tobacco, prunes, vanilla, freshcut wood, and at least an 89% chocolate. Even some wineaspects, as in Merlot. Perkyfresh carbonation, soft dark malt taste, with more vanillapod and red peppercorns. Mellows nicely out, pure pleasure. I just love it when under(dogs)ferments, can give such a complex experience.

Bottle purchased at Liquor Box in East Moline. Deep brown body, like strong iced tea with a light yellowish khaki head. The aroma is cellar and tofffee. There is also a note of old leather. The taste is lots of caramel with some light milk chocolate. There is also some cantalope in the clean finish. Very soft carbonation. Nicely made.

Pours near black with reddish hues and a mostly receding tan head. Aroma of thick sticky malt, bread dough, earthy toffee. Taste is sweet and malty, toffee, thick caramelized wort, raisins, and dark bread. Full bodied, lightly sticky with moderate carbonation. A half liter of this beer is a meal!

Bottle pours brown with amber hue, has off white head with large bubbles. Aroma is has a sharp bready malty sweetness, fruits, yeast, toffee caramel, lots going on. All flavors combine very nicely for a well rounded taste. Complex aroma with well balanced taste very nice. joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 14, 2011
Pours dark red with a tan head. The aroma is bready with some potent molasses, and some raisin/plum. The flavor is rich and malty with pumpernickel bread, molasses, raisins and some dryness and hop presence in the finish. Some cocoa and yeastiness that adds complexity. Nice dark German beer!
