Draft from Brewery. Served in a tulip glass, the bartender created a nearly perfect pour with the inch thick off-white head touching the brim of the glass, above its medium brown body. This brew has a sweet, almost milk chocolate nose. On the hoppy side for a doppelbock, this beer is nicely balanced, smooth and warming. Very tasty.

jgb9348 (6092) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2017
Deep hazy brown coloured body with a tint of toffee and caramel and a thin, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, pitted fruits, some pungent malt and a lot of sweet caramelised sugar scents throughout and a touch of meat and bacon noticeable at the end. Medium-bodied; Assertive malt and earth flavour at first with a large dose of caramel, funk, toasted malt, grain, alcohol, apples/pear fruitiness and ending with an almost meaty and mushroomy flavour. Aftertaste shows a lot of robust flavours with the toffee and earth the strongest, but also showing some sweetness from the caramel and a rather large bitterness from both the toasted malt and the light hops. Overall, a decent beer that shows some funky flavours for some parts, but a relatively standard beer for the style throughout with a lot of pungency and depth. Nice to try, and worth trying, especially if you like the style. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-July-2016 for US$2,29 sampled at home in Washington on 21-April-2017.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2017 Rosine & Co, prickelnde, fast kristallisierte Asche und ein unbändig alkoholischer Karamelmalztrunk der unsüßen und hopfenbitteren Sorte lassen einen Halleluja schreien 😀. Die gute Asche 😉. Anlakritzt und ausgewogen as hell. Bomber von BEERGIUM.COM. 6 Okken!? 🤓.

Lore (2614) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 13, 2016
hazy brown colour with reddish notes and half inch creamy beige-is head; aroma of caramel, soy sauce, hints of vanilla, dried fruits, raisin and floral notes; taste of syrupy sweetness with dried fruits, mild roasted rye bread, soy sauce notes and spicy alcohol; good beer, though would be much better if this syrupy maltines was more balanced by hops

Bottle shared at Kenny?s 20k 15/01/2016. Many thanks to Jan for this one. A clear reddy amber coloured pour with a small off white head. Aroma is nutty caramel malts, dried fruits, raisin, harsh apple. Flavour is composed of semi sweet nutty, toffee apple, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg. Passable.

Quick3Beers (1171) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Pours a dark brown with red notes, thin off-white head, quickly dissipating. Aroma of molasses, and bread. Flavor is a little more pumpernickel-y, rather sweet and syrupy. Good beer.

Dark, amber color . Thin , off-white head . Aroma of molasses, bread and nuts . Sweet , malty taste with some fruity notes. Decent beer , but far from my favorite doppelbock.

AirForceHops (7042) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 27, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Dark amber body with slight head. Nose is nuts, toasted grain, molasses, figs.

Flavor also malts, caramel, some dark fruit hints. Some dark bread note, decent yeast backbone. Bitter in the finish. But quite sweet but not sugary. It does show a mild bitterness. More balanced then I was guessing. This is actually rather good.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Bit drunk now. Thanks to Fan1Jan. Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Palatye is light, dry and a little crispy. Good rich creamy malts sweetness, but also a touch of lactose like sweetness. Dried fruits. Light semi dry finish. Okay.

dmac (6103) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2016
12oz bottle from somewhere. Poured a really good looking clear chestnut brown body with an ample tight foamy beige head. Aroma of brown paper bags, raisin, nuts shell. Flavor is the same plus date and fig skins. Fuller syrupy mouthfeel and soft carbonation with some warming on the finish. Solid enough.
