Hazy copper brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, yeasty, crusty bread, brown sugar, and some planty, herbal hops. Flavor is caramel, toffee, butterscotch, light sweet corn, toast, doughy yeast, autolyzed yeast, bread crust, caramelized brown sugar, light earthy, planty hops and dull, spicy hops to the finish. Medium body, slightly chalky, creamy and chewy feel and moderate carbonation. Its a strange Doppelbock with tons of yeast character, but I liked it. edgallow (4570) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 17, 2014
16.9 oz bottle pours hazy brown with a off white head. Aroma of malts, bread, caramel and some fruit. Taste is malty, dried fruit and a little roast. Shark_Pants (769) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 17, 2014
Pours cola brown with a 1 finger head into a Weihenstephan glass. Nose is heavy caramel & malt, some overripe banana, Vegemite. As others have said, the taste is very sweet - strong toffee, toasted malts, with some hints of Vegemite, light hops and peppery notes in the finish toning down the sweetness a little. Medium bodied. Possibly a little sweet overall but still very enjoyable.

A nice rich and smooth molasses based doppel. Heavy toffee, caramel with mild hops and a bit of boozy warmth. A nice heavy finish with a good sweetness overall Moravius (1468) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Tiefes Goldbraun. Der Antrunk ist für einen Doppelbock überraschend schlank, dunkelröstmalzig und nicht zu karamelsüß. Noten von Holz, gerösteten Nüssen, Bitterschokolade. Erdiger fränkischer Hopfen sorgt für einen ausreichend bitteren Abgang. - Ein aromatischer Doppelbock, der weder süß noch pappig und trotz des großzügigen Ethanoldepots auch nicht spritig ist. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 2, 2013
bottle from ambrosetti in berlin. rich amber with a steady head; rich aroma of stewed stonefruit and vanilla; rich with some warming alcohol and tinny hops all nicely in balance Creedence (315) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a dark and hazy reddish brown with a thin but lasting white head and really nice lacing. Aroma is strong chocolatey butterscotch, with light berry and grassy notes. Quite complex and interesting. Taste is strong and boozy sweetness with a touch of astringent bitterness. Finish is big and malty, with even carbonation and a little bit of a prickle from the booziness. Very nice beer, would happily drink it again. KnutAlbert (6797) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2013
