Pours beautiful copper with a thin beige head. Clear. Aroma is malty, a bit sweet and with some dried dark fruits. Taste.. oh, it is truly satisfying. Malty, fruity and sweet and bitter. Kind of like I want all bock style beers to be. Lots of balanced caramel flavours, some candy and heaps of caramel ice-cream. With dried plums as toppings. Kind of takes me back to medieval times as for some reason this is tasting as I would imagine beer to taste during the time of knights. Grumpelmies (364) - GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Black/brown. Beautiful head. Aroma of red berries, treacle and malts. Sweet and vinous. Taste is a little bit fruity sweet, a tad bit spicy and bitter. Caramell, plums, liquorice and malts. Heavy, complex and balanced. Good carbonation and mouthfeel. Amazing Doppelbock. Very bavarian but for whatever reason also images of Belgium and Britain cross my mind.

16.9 oz bottle pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, coffee, caramel and roast. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee and plums geolgau (468) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle from Auchan. Nice dark brown color, wih thin, rapid dissipating pink-ish head. Aroma is nice: dried plums, caramel, roasted malt. Taste is a bit too sweet, and with notes of caramel, dark fruits. You can feel the alcohol. Sweet and lasting finish. A good one for its price. ironprog (98) - Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2017
I pint 0.9 oz. bottle. Pours a brownish-black with a tall, frothy, tan head that lasts forever. Smells like sweet milk-chocolate and caramel. Taste is sweet with flavors of lightly-burnt caramel and a hint of licorice and honey. It is medium-bodied with a creamy texture. Carbonation is average and the finish is long and sweet. There’s really not much I can quibble about. This is just a really great beer and will soon become one of my favorites.
