Dark hazy brown pour, with a medium beige head. Thick, sticky bready malts. Lots of cereals, sweet plums, and apples. Some minerals, and a tad metallic. Soft mouth feel, soft carb. Very bready, grainy finish, with next to no bitterness and quite a bit of sweetness. hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2014

Schöne rotbraune Farbe, röstmalzig-frischer Geruch. Der Antrunk ist frisch-malzig mit röstmalziger Note. Zum Hauptteil hin kommt eine angenehme malzige Süße hinzu, die sich mit einer leichten Herbe gut verbindet. Etwas sehr malzig-süßlich und leicht dickflüssig. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, malzig-süßlich mit leicht röstmalziger Note. GoufCustom (2005) - HONG KONG - JUN 14, 2014
→ Leckerer Doppelbock, aber für meinen Geschmack etwas zu süßlich. 12+11+11+12

500 ml bottle bought at foodGARDEN in D2 Place, Lai Chi Kok.
Looks: Clear dark copper amber colour; Three-quarter finger head and light beige foam which fades in 30 seconds; Small sticky lacing with active carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant sweet full malt, with strong caramel, strong toffee, brown sugar, light coffee, light musty, alcohol and faint grass.
Taste: Strong and savory sweet malt, with strong caramel, toffee, strong molasses, hint of alcohol, sweet bread, yeast, faint lemon and shades of bitter grassy hops.
Body: Full body. Dry, rich and slightly creamy palate.
Mouth Feel: Very rich dark malt in thick body. Maltyness is harmonious with very expressive caramel and light toffee characters. Sweetness is strong but natural and tasty, and blended well with the smooth but hidden 8.2% booze. Loads of sweet bread, what a beauty!
Hoppiness: Faint grass nose, thin lemon and faint grassy taste. Bitterness is faint in background, match well with malty sweetness for a flickering low finish.
After Taste: Quite dry. Very easy rich to mouth.
Comments: This is a bona fide Doppelbock, one of those authentic and historic German monastic brews that give the style such fine reputation - rich maltyness, strong tasty sweetness (how often do you say that to a beer?), nice caramel and toffee aroma and taste with a dash of coffee for good measure, well-hidden and tasty booze. Every aspect is in the right balance, this is what a nice Doppelbock is about. Highly Recommended!
Bottle, shared with my wife over a dinner of sausage and potatoes. Medium brown with golden highlights. Sweet malty aroma and flavour, brown sugar, butterscotch, brown bread, lightly estery. Medium bodied. A tasty doppelbock. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2014
[Bottle] Darker reddish/orange pour with a thin amount of foam on top. Sweet toffee and fruitcake apparent in the nose. Caramel, toffee, light fruits, raisin and bready notes in the flavor. Sticky palate. Mild warmth from the alcohol comes out as the beer warms. Tasting notes from 2/2012. MichaelAwesome (6519) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2014
