initially, I got an nose of cherry, but it further developed into a bit of a fig aroma, with some hints of "other fruit" tartness. Upon an initial sip, fig definitely stands out as the dominant flavor. It a very good beer with deep, rich fruit flavors. I’m not quite sure what I was getting, but it was dark, rich, and bold. A very rich brew.
Heavy aroma of malt with some winish notes and some dark bread with plum. Cloudy copper in the glass with a minimal head. Taste is really fruity with some notes of brown sugar, bread, toast, caramel and gentle grainy touch. Sticky, maybe little bit overwhelming, but I appreciate it. panda_brewmaster (77) - Bournemouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2017

Bottle from Knighton Londis, Leicester. This is incredible. It has everything. Sticky, deep fruitcake malt; pudding barley hopping. Crispness, some tart snap. Germanic doppelbock authenticity. Really good. Surprising good. A suprise. Grumpelmies (398) - GERMANY - OCT 21, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Bottle. Murky brown with orange tinges and a big head. Aroma of fruity and herbal hops and some caramel. Taste is caramel and toffee. Malty, fruity and bitter. Hoppy finish. Medium carbonation. A hint of booziness. It's nice and delicious but I prefer the regular version as I feel it's more balanced and satisfying.

Leider kein positives Spezial im Vergleich zum Standard. Schwere Malzaromen mit einer spürbaren metallischen Alkoholnote und einem kratzig bitteren Abgang. Mr_Pink_152 (5637) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017
