A lot of caramel showing up. Some laceowork. Hints of walnuts. Biscuity malt. Lovely earthy spicy hop profile. NIce balance.

Clear amber color, small steady beige head. Sweetish malty, alcoholic aroma with some caramel in it. Medium-bodied. Malty, harsh alcoholic flavor with grassy hoppyness. Lingering alcohol in the aftertaste with some fruity notes. Almost like a heller bock by taste.
Mild malziger, später aber stark würzig-herber Antrunk, in dem das Malz die Hauptrolle spielt. Der Alkohol ist in Auszügen erkenbar und hinterläst kurzzeitig eine klebrig-süße Note im Hintergrund. Würziger Abgang mit süßer und starker Malznote, wenig herb. Nussig-getreidig, der Hopfen wird nur mit einer blumigen Beinote erwähnt. 9/8/8/9/10/9

Medium amber with a big rocky head and full lacing. Lots of caramel and roasted malt, big mouthfeel, and a clean carbonated bitter finish. Extremely drinkable and refreshing on a cool evening. Well Done! Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - APR 15, 2011
Into the glass pours a reddish-brown beer with a little foam. Roasty-sweet caramel malt aroma. Starts sweet malty, very roasty, with hints of caramel. The center part is something bitter. The aftertaste shows malty and dry with a delicate caramel note and lots of roasted malts. The finish is again very harsh, the hop is now clearly visible. Good Bockbier! crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Comes with a label that has a deer on it adn a wintery scene. 500 ml brown bottle
Pours a clear brown, no other way to describe it really, maybe a hint of red. The head is slightly off-white and it leaves some decent lacing.
The smell is a bit lacking, mild dark fruit, a hint of malt, nothing much.
The taste is better though, it has a nice robustness to it and a great fruity sweetness. There is a decent amount of bitterness as well in the backing. Definitely more of a roasty doppelbock.
It is a pretty flavorful beer in the end, I would recommend it

Draft. Muddled burnt umber but with great thick head. Nice bready aroma. High gravity feel with big body and alcoholic finish. Tastes stark...Dry but malty and spicy, bready and herbal. Is nice.
