On tap in Rothenburg, April 2013. I found this at a random restaurant new the town hall. Nearly black, with some redness, and a tall, lacing head. A beautiful beer. Rich malt flavor. Red meat; caramel; butter; and grains. Maybe the best doppelbock I have ever had, certainly in the same caliber as Andechs. saxo (18960) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle. Nice head with excellent duration. Color is dark amber. Aroma and taste are rich fruits, nuts, caramel, malt and hops. Sweet finish and full bodied. TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours Deep Mahogony with an off-white head. Candied fruit aroma. It’s very sweet with sackloads of malty goodness and some plummy, raisiny elements. The alcohol makes its way to the front. A real dessert beer. Ernest (7746) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is medium to dark brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel/molasses, nuts/shells ,bread), with a note of brown sugar.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
A fair enough rendition but pretty generic and mild. Quiet aroma is just malt and sugars. Sweet in the mouth, and surprisingly modest in body. Pretty watery. Very difficult to get excited about it...doesn’t really do anything wrong, but seems kinda phoned-in. MichaelAwesome (6546) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 15, 2013
Endlich mal etwas rosinenlastige Abwechslung, die mit einem gewissen Süße und nur wenig Alkohol im Aroma zu punkten weiß. Selten solch ein großes Böckchen gezischt. Toll.

Deep dark brown colour with low head and smooth body, Nose of intense malt. Taste of rich malt, dark nuts, torf, burnt caramel, medium bitter hops, ripe grains and brown bread. This beer is really easy and nice to drink and it doesn’t have that much of a Doppelbock-feeling (you don’t really taste the strong alcohol). Nice and solid Doppelbock.

Aroma complesso, zuccherino, fruttato. Marroncina con un bel cappello di schiuma. Al palato ingresso dolce dominato dai malti, molto complessa ma elegantissima. Sentori di prugna, mou, e frutta secca. Chiude in maniera splendida con una leggerissima luppolatura. Calda, buona, equilibrata. Da bere a litri. Dorqui (2259) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 15, 2013
Dark reddish color, impenetrable with a long duration bubbly aspect. Optimal foamy head. Much complex and round nose; notes of roast malty, mighty alcoholic, caramel. Medium prickly taste, little overbanding alcoholic perception with a good bitternes final with notes of liqueur and hop. Grzesiek79 (4362) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Dobry i treściwy doppelbock. Ciemny, machoniowy kolor i kremowa piana. W smaku rozgrzewa w zimowe wieczory, bardzo aromatyczne i smaczne piwo. Polecam kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 28, 2012
