33cl bottle @ home. Clear dark red brown color, medium to full sized off-white to beige head that leaves fair lacing. Smell malts, dark malts, sugar. Taste malts, slightly dark fruits, sugar and sweetness. Medium, maybe a bit low carbonation, low to medium body.
(I rate it, because I drank it again and liked it). Bottle pours dark ruby-brown with a tan head. A sweet but nice and full aroma of roasted malts, caramel and spices. Taste is accordingly; quite sweet, more than medium, light bitter, with some licorice in the finish. Although rather sweet this is a tasty dubbelbock. droef (190) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
0,3 glass from tap. Not the best "dubbelbock" I’ve had and not the worst, Quite average. Zlotta (3278) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2016
0.3 l bottle from ’Slijterij VOS’, best before August 2018. Clear, dark reddish brown with a large, foamy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty aroma of caramel, nuts and some raisins. Rather sweet, malty, sugary taste of caramel, brown sugar, some nuts and hints of raisins, followed by a short, just slightly bitter, a bit yeasty finish with a touch of clove and some plasticine. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay, definitely drinkable, but a bit too sweet, even for a Doppelbock. Sigmund (7470) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2016

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours almost clear dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty, bready . Taste is moderate sweet, smooth malts, nice doppel, but nothing extraordinary.
