IrishBoy's rating

2.8
IrishBoy (4185) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 12, 2012
330ml bottle from Beer Revolution. Nose is a tiny bit of dried apricot mixed with some toffee, a hint of Galliano liqueur , and a light breadiness. Lightly hazed yellow orange with a small off white head. Flavor is lots of malt with alcohol, and a tiny bit of bitterness. Drinkable but no way my favorite dopplebock.

nephirem (507) - CROATIA - JUN 26, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear golden pour, very thick looking. One finger creamy off-white head with pretty good retention. Intensively sweet nose. Heavily malty with lots of caramel. Medium to full body, softly carbonated. Thick, oily texture. Taste pretty much follows the nose - very, very sweet. Cloying, even. Aroma is heavily malty. Caramel, candy, sugary syrup. Molasses. Alcohol. Lots of alcohol. Despite all the excess sweetness, alcohol is not hidden at all. Sure, the ABV is quite high, but still... Poorly balanced. Overall, not much of a doppelbock. Feels more like an imperial pilsner, and not particularly good one at that. Sugary alcohol bomb rather then the beer. Some might like it, but this one just isn’t up my alley.

Icedwarf (1628) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2017
Donkergeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is krachtig, zoet en warm met iets van cognac, rozijn en marsepein. In eerste instantie best goed maar gaat na enige tijd toch iets tegenstaan.

ischas (698) - - MAY 28, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2017 0,33 l Flasche. Orangerotes Bier, flacher weißer Schaum. Riecht nach Marzipan, alkoholisch. Schmeckt leicht alkoholisch, malzig süß, Karamell, Weinbrand. Ungewöhnlich.

mikkellund42 (850) - DENMARK - MAY 7, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2017 Bottle. Pours clear golden with small white head. Aroma is malt, grain and faint brewers yeast. Taste is light sweet, light bitter and light acidic. Body is watery with sparkling carbonation. Finish is light bitter with notes of malt, caramel, sesame seeds and bitter grapefruit.

3.1
geolgau (212) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - MAY 2, 2017
Clear golden, almost no head. Aroma is a bit off for me: mold, cognac, alcohol, wet wood. Oily, medium body, light carbonation. Sweet and punchy/alcoholic. Taste is cognac mostly, with some caramel. Not really my cup of tea.

2.3
gripweed57 (2314) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2017
From old tasting notes. Deep golden color. Strong bittersweet hop aroma. Excessively sweet malt flavor is somewhat cloying. Strong alcohol prescence. Small bubble carbonation.

Rei00 (117) - CHILE - FEB 21, 2017
Una Pale Double Bock de color dorado, baja carbonatación y espuma. Su aroma es a frutos secos (pasas e higos) y toques de Cognac. Su sabor es muy cercano al Cognac, con amargor es equilibrado con los sabores a frutos secos. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma alcoholic, whiskey, malt and honey, intensive. Golden/amber color very clear, almost no head. Mild carbonation, sweet, honey, alcoholic taste.
