Eructoblaster (4308) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
On tap at Der Biergarten (Atlanta, GA). Dark copper body with an average, lasting, beige foamy head. Decent malty aroma with hoppy, woody, and brown sugar hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries woody, beown sugar, and fruity notes. Ends with a warming, sweet/woody finish. Good stuff. ryanscourt (1498) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Very good. Dark brown, tasty. Rich creamy body, malt forward flavor but with a slight hop finish. tiong (7452) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2015
355ml bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a small head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, syrup, berries and sweet sugary mess. Taste is sweet, stuffy, messy and sugary with hints of syrup and toffee. Finish is sweet, sticky and syrupy with loads of sugar. Sugary mess. olio (10434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
355 ml bottle @ hotel room, Los Angeles.lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Pours dark amber color with a small head. Granola aroma, malts, some dark berries and sugar. Sugar flavor, malty, syrupy and some rotting soul remnants from the all real Dobbel Bocks.
330 ml bottle. Enjoyed at Los Angeles, CA. Pours a dark Brown colour with a small head. Aroma of heavy sweet toffee, bread and earthiness. Flavour of breakfast cereal, bread, heavy syrupy sweetness and mild grassy bitterness. Very sweet. Far from a good doppelbock.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Los Angeles. Aroma has grain, some roastiess and cereal. Also raisins. Flavour is very sweet with sticky malt, raisins, ripe fruits and artifical chocolate. Oh wow, this is the most sweet beer I have had for a while. Drinkability is rather bad. ozzy70 (1211) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 23, 2015
Pours dark brown, with thin brown head that is minimal. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste, same a aroma, light sweetness. kingofthemtn (55) - - AUG 15, 2015
I thought if the oktoberfest was good, the optimator would be better. The appearance is an inviting, clear, dark brown/black. Taste is all malt, with a strange raisin flavor. I don’t like it as much as the oktoberfest. There is a slight roasted malt aftertaste. MarauderSky (28) - - AUG 12, 2015
Really nice drink. I can’t really think of any flaws that I noticed. Goo in all categories. Petkus331 (389) - Redford, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Light date-prune aroma with hints of coffee-ish dark malt and some bright apple-clementine esters. Nearly opaque purplish brown with a nice white head. Sweet dark fruit up front, but finishes dry and light. Fizzy, light, but a little watery. Overall, i really like this beer. Had a bucket of it for $10 at Germanfest in Ann Arbor last summer.
