foxo82 (884) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle from Trafalgar Wines, Brighton. Looks great - as you would expect from a Munchner special; reddish brown, like a beaver (the four legged kind) submerged in cherry cola. Rich, delicious aroma of Lyle’s golden syrup cake and chicken satay mixed with honey and sultanas. Seriously. Taste is initially strongly honey, syrup and ginger but settles down, avoiding being too sweet as the bittersweet malt aftertaste comes through. There’s definitely some lemon juice and Benylin in there too. The one downside was that it felt a bit thin and watery but with a taste like this I didn’t mind too much. A triumph indeed - and my first 4+ score in 50 beers. It’s been a long time...

SinH4 (4414) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown color wih creamy eggshell head. Aroma is malty, bready, some prunes. Taste is prunes, bready, sirupy. Warming finish. Creamy mouthfeel, but with a bit of a fizzy carbonation. A bit too sweet and unbalanced, but still quite nice.

ozzatoadisback (145) - ITALY - DEC 31, 2016
Not so easy to rate by appearance as it was served in a ceramic mug. However, the head is pretty dense and persistent and leaves nice lacing. Aroma shows dark bread, caramel, dark/dried fruits and some kind of ’dusty’ hint that i quite can’t determine (it’s something in between roasted and smoked malts). Overall it’s quite intense and very pleasant. Taste follows the aroma suggestions with perfect balance of sweet and bitter notes in both taste and aftertaste. Again it’s also quite intense. Medium body, light carbonation, highly drinkable and easy for the abv but still nicely soft and slightly warming. Perfectly balanced, highly drinkable and quite complex. A truly excellent beer

ElDesmadre (3626) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle. Raisins, light grain, caramel, bread crust, subtle sweetness. Tastes lighter than it should probably, which means that it has an excellent drinkability. Very good.

Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2016
Bottle. Dark reddish brown. Medium sized head. Aroma of dark fruits and some coffee and chocolate. Taste is fruity, malty, sweet. Brown sugar that almost makes me think of belgian ales. Aftertaste features happy hoppiness. A real good Doppelbock but to consider it world class I’m missing something in the departments of mouthfeel and complexity. First world problems.

ciocanelu (2048) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 20, 2016
Really dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has toasted malt and dark bread. Taste is malty, leans definitely towards the sweet side, dark bread, bread crust, burnt sugar and finishes with a slight earthy bitterness. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Overall it’s quite good but a bit sweet for my taste.
