Clear dark amber with a medium head. Sweet with malt, caramel, syryp and some light notes of dried fruit. Warming alcohol in the finish. Not bad but I prefer a Doppelbock with more malt.

Pours dark brown with an amber tint and an off white head. Aroma is toasted malt, grain, and fruity sweetness. Flavor is sweet toasted malt and grain with dark dried fruits and some bready yeastiness. Finish has some alcohol warmth and some hopiness. Really nice dopplebock

(bottle) Aroma of candy, floral and malt. Mahogany complexion with thick tan head and glass lacing. The flavor is complex and rich. Malty with sweetness without cloying. ABV well concealed. Very well crafted for the style. jookos (6762) - FINLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle. Dark amber, reddish, clear. Malty, sweet malty, light syrupy nose with nice neutral subtle, light citrussy, green hops. Full bodied, soft smooth, light oily, mouth filling texture. Malty sweets, super clean, easy. Just on the brink of being cloying, hides the abv quite well. Feels like malt candy. Just sweet enough, but with a really clean malt flavour. Ingevara (910) - SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2015
Tempting smell. Average head. Fruity sweetness, but less sugar than most doppelbocks. Sturdy hoppiness without exaggeration. Some dark chocolate and lots of malt and bready tones. Complex. Again. AndyW68 (1542) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Really liked this. Brown pour with red tint and minimal off white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt, nutty and you get a nice warm alcohol feel. Linnet (1832) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Jam, marmalade, earthy hops, warming and very malty.
Copper colour, medium beige head, lacing.
Big cloying sweetness, medium bite too sweet for my liking.
Fullbodied, average carbonation, warming finish.
Good example of one of my least favourite styles.
