Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 500 ml bottle. Very dark, almost black pour with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Sweet aroma reminiscent of dates and molasses. Sweetness carries over to the flavor with some light underlying chocolate, molasses and prunes. Nice stick to your ribs flavor - would be great in the winter. Thickish, rich mouthfeel - 10.5 ABV hidden extremely well. Impressed - did not expect when looking at the budget brand label.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a very dark brown and a small creme, head. Aroma is quite strong with notes of raisin and caramel. Has a thin body with a very obvious presence of alcohol at first sip. Flavor is extremely sweet with no discernible attempt at balance. A good beer at first, but is a challenge to down a half liter because of how cloying it is. Does unfortunately remind me a bit of steel reserve.

2009 Bottle - Thanks BuckeyeBoy!! - Pours thin and dk with a medium beige head...aroma is very sweet fruit and some dk roasted grains, chocolate...flavour is almost unbearably sweet, caramelized sugar and cocoa, seemed a bit thin for the style, and the overly sweet malt covered up just about everything else...

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Oooo baby, ooh baby, oooo baby……Primator double bock @ 10.5% weew. From a big fat half liter bottle, must be the equivalent to our pint. How can one not buy a beer called primator, eh? Big sweet bready aroma, no hint of the heavy alky within but sometimes I smell choco or malt carob. First taste is great, then the alky immediately sets in with an almost syrupy sweet attack on the palate. Pour is dark and reminds me of a few dopple beers I’ve had from the old country. Mainly…picantus, vitus or aventis. .. Sweet big bang alky follow. The look of this beer is dark bock weizen tho there is nothing on the bottom of the bottle. Root beer dark and almost as sweet. BTW, my label looks nothing like this one, this is a gold label that says double bock right there in plain English., then there is this red banner with white lettered primator proudly typed on. . Yea, weizenbock. All the way for this brew. Sweet old aged high alky beir feeling my friends. Sweet finish that almost attacks your back of throat like many cheap American malt liquors such as jaguar, with its gag reflex and all. Let me see you chug of these obtrusive bottles. Sicky sweet finish. Somewhat strong boorish and brutally bearish at times.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle thanks to photomike. Very dark brown with a small beige head. Very malty aroma with lots of dried fruit going on. Raisin, fig, date... just a ton of that stuff. Very rich and pleasant. The flavor is very sweet with lots of dried fruit and toasty malt. Bitterness and hop flavor are pretty much non-existent. Fermentation character is clean and lager-ish. Full bodied with medium-low carbonation and a syrupy texture. A very sweet dessert drink, but pretty nice overall. Pure dried fruit and malt overload. I saw this many times over in europe and even got to see these guys at a beer festival in Prague, but it took me this long to try their doppelbock. This is a pretty good take on the upper end of the style, but it is just a little too sweet for my liking.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle.
The label says it’s a porter.
Pours a dark brown/ruby colour with a small beige head on top, carbonation’s lively.
Sweet smell of roasted malt, coffee and alcohol.
The start is sharp, taste is sweet, flavour’s of coffee and vanilla.
Roasty and caramell aroma, the finish is coffee-bitter, dry and alcohol’s warming up.
The body’s full, texture is sticky, but not (porter-liked) oily. Not bad, but unfortunately the alcohol’s not hidden well and overall it’s impressing rather to a doublebock in deed...
