Draught at "The Blue Monk" Mikkeller takes over. Pour is pitch black, tan head that is not very thick. Lacing hangs like a clumpy sheet on the walls of the glass. Smells so sweet and caramelized malt. Taste is incredibly sweet like molasses. Maybe a little woodiness as well. This was off charts of good flavor. I’m so glad I got to experience it on draught.

pour is near black with a big ol head of grey that lasts. doubt i’ll get through this tonight. been going for 17 hours and i can see the end of the line. at least i’ll a have a breakfast beer. this is not a beer, it is a syrup, thick goodness. smells of roast, maple, a bit of smoke(could be the 4 mile fire, but i think it is the beer.) and watermelon. damn this is tasty. nice roast and sweet balance. caramel notes all over without being too sweet. some vanilla and a great warming alcohol throughout. peanut finish that has a lot of a lot of honey flavors, like a candy i used to love as a kid. bit-o-honey in beer form. good times.

Wow! What a beer. Aroma of brown sugar, glazed figs, and heaven. Pours bock brown with great lacing. Great viscosity. Taste is rich with sugar, fig and slight rhubarb. Amazing beer.

Piwo pięknie pachnące wisniowka, czerwonym winem i leśnymi owocami. W smaku sliwka wegierka, trochę nut cherry, alkohol obecny ale szlachetny, rozgrzewający i o długim finiszu. Karmel czekolada i wanillia. Troche zbyt słodkawe ale ogolnie wielka przyjemność z degustacji tego degustacyjnego piwa.

drpimento (3572) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Excellent doppelbock! Aroma is roasty malty toffee caramel. Flavor is like nose, more bitter than sweet, has a long bittersweet finish, great carbonation. Not something to drink fast and a good beer to share.

4.4
spacecube (1705) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Pours a deep dark brown, large head reduces to a thin lacing, aroma of forest fruits with a bit of alcohol. Tastes of roast fruits, pine , a bit of banana, some grapefruit and some alcohol. Very nice balance and does not feel 11% abv.
