From Mar 2007
Pours from 16.9oz bottle(room temp) a clear amber with a smallish head of foam that shrinks very quickly. Just a bit of foam in the center of the glass and a tiny bit of lacing.
The smell is of caramel malt and some alcohol.
The taste is of caramel malt up front and it's in big abundance. There's also some grain in the flavour as well as some bready notes and a bit of alcohol. This is defintely a nice tasting Doppelbock and has much more going on than the Optimator I tried yesterday.
Further sips in and the grain is really asserting itself and, combined with this really nice caramel malt that I'm getting, makes for a very tasty and drinkable brew. I like this one a lot! I'm going to have to get some more, for sure.
Bottom line: This example of the style hits my palate very well. I can only recommend it!

Barwa ciemnozłota, klarowna, piana obfita, wyleciała z butelki po otwarciu. W aromacie i smaku niewiele się dzieje - słodowość, lekkie banany, karmel, suszone owoce, ciemne pieczywo - wszystko jest mało intensywne. Piwo wyleciało z butelki przy otwarciu, ale wysycenie nie było za wysokie. Pyobon (1482) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2017
(Bottle) Pours clear amber brown with short-lived thin off-white head. Toffee aroma with hints of raisins. Medium body with good carbonation. Taste of toffee with some fruity hints. Little bitterness apparent and high alcohol content not particularly obvious in taste. Nice beer. Bitek (773) - Warszawa, POLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Chlebek, suszone owoce, toffi, trochę alkoholu. Średnio treściwe, półsłodkie. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, średnie wysycenie. Spoko piwo, oferuje wszystko to, czego można spodziewać się po tym stylu.
