darioklc (729) - Karlovac, CROATIA - OCT 10, 2016
Ovaj Dopplebock ima čak 9.6% alk. Austrijsko pivo, iskreno nemam pojma odokud mi. Naoko izgleda kao obično pivo, zlatno žute boje, malo zamućeno. U mirisu ima voćne note. Okusom se dosta osjeti ta jačina alkohola, ali ga slatkoća piva brzo zamaskira. Dosta je pitak s obzirom na toliki postotak alkohola.

McSherman (606) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2016
Orange bis kupferfarben fast klar mit wenig beständigem weißem Schaum. Süßlich malzig, spürbar alkoholisch. Aromen von Karamell, Honig, Marzipan. Leicht bitter. Interessantes helles Doppelbock, aber das Samichlaus ist eine Klasse besser.

EvNa (190) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle. Color: Orange golden, clear, small fast disappearing white head. Taste: Sweet, sugar, hints of honey. Nice balance with taste of hops and alcohol. Very dense body. Long lasting finish. Very nice beer.

midovark (654) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - AUG 11, 2016
0.33 l bottle. Pours clear golden with quickly disappearing head. Honey, reisin, alcohol, bitter and sweet notes in aroma. In taste first comes the sweetness and then dry bitterness. Heavy on body, softly carbonated. Good one.

eastroad (6) - FRANCE - JUL 31, 2016 does not count
One of the best Austrian beer i’ve tried. It’s a doppelbock beer; however its palate is lighter as expected. Roasted malt and brown sugar caramel notes compensated by the hops.

SeniorZozo (1345) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2016
Sweet honey aroma. Gold appearance. The head is not staying a lot. Honey strong taste. This could be a honey beer. But very nice body and palate.

ejh8 (118) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Cloudy, little more orange than pale yellow. Strong taste with a high ABV. I didn’t find the 9.6% to be as overwhelming as other higher ABV beers, but this isn’t that good and I took my time at it. It was a good beer to sample, but not make a staple.

SinH4 (3669) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden-orange color with small head that goes down quickly. Aroma is pale malts, straw, corn, honey, marzipan. Taste is straw and corn, honey, honeycomb, sweet, heavy and boozy finish. High, nearly fizzy carbonation - the force-carbonating does not really help this beer. Some aspects of this beer go into a Malt Liquor, but the depth for a non-yeasty pale Bock of this immense strength is quite applaudable. The booziness is also not haunting, it fits. A beer one should have tried at some point (why did I wait so long?), but I am not the biggest fan of ultra-strong pale beers.
