Poured from the bottler. Color is a nice dark brown, hints of chocolate with a roasted nut taste. There is absolutely "no" aftertaste on your palate upon drinking. Has a definite European taste (obviously), good beer!
Color: Dark, small foamy head. Aroma: malty and rich. Taste: bready, toasty, very little hops. Palette: viscous, thick, almost chewy. My favorite doppelbock. ginotarugo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2017
Brown almost black in color. Licorice tasting, but not in a good way. Tastes so bad I had to grimace on every sip. I did finally finish the bottle, but it was a chore. Troegenator is my benchmark to compare other Dopplebocks and this one isn’t even in the same league. Westy1130 (87) - New York, USA - APR 2, 2017
On tap at Plattduetsche Park biergarten(Oktoberfest).
Murky brown color with nutty aroma. Taste of sweet malt, toffee and chestnuts. danielyabu (1637) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 26, 2017
small frothy offwhite head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. clear average-density dark-brown with ruby highlights body. aroma: moderate malty, raisin, wood. initial flavor: moderate sweet. final flavor: moderate sweet light bitter acidic; average duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, light astringent alcoholic finish. forte dulçor maltado lembrando frutas secas, leve aquecimento alcoolico, leve acidez final lembra ameixa fresca, balanceando o conjunto. A acidez não esta prevista nas bjcp, mas em minha opinião aparece como plus em um conjunto que caso contrário poderia ser enjoativo. 75 s ZacM612 (699) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Draft at Shoal Creek Tavern. Dark brown, with lasting off-white head. Rich, malty aroma. Notes of coffee flavor in the malty backbone.

Aromas of toffee and bread. Taste is berries, toffee, and bread, with a tad bit of smoke and wet leaves in the end. KevinReddirt (151) - Midland, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Sometimes it just does not connect.The 12 oz. bottle gave up a dark, almost black, liquid with a head that has to be coaxed with the pour. How do I describe the nose, medicinal, perhaps. An improvement with the taste, but only so much. Malt heavy, an astringent edge, a glimmer of sweetness following. Just not my style, Just not my beer.

Btl pours a dark brown color with a dense soft, off white head that hangs around leaving spots of lace on glass. Aromas of dark bread,grain,herbal hops, and whiff of alcohol. Tastes of sweet caramel, dates,malt and spicy hops. Full body, nice carbonation, slick, smooth mouthfeel and a sweet-spicy finish. This beer has a really comfortable taste. It is very easy to drink with nice homely flavors. It’s a little sweet but the hops and alcohol balance it out nicely. It is simple yet elegant. Great winter warmer! hman43 (1538) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - NOV 6, 2016
It pours brown with a brown head. It has a very deep rich malt aroma. There are flavors highlight by toast with some dark fruit. The flavors are sweet, rich and clean They feature toast, malts, and hints of dark fruits. It has a full body that is smooth with some alcohol warming. Overall this is a highly malted beer with little hops, but clean and flavorful. tia (2131) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Tap at Mader’s. Very dark with no head. Smells like dark raisin bread, but dry, and maybe a little hint of chocolate. Flavor follows.
