Half-litre bottle: looks great. BBD 3rd Mar 14, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 20th Dec 13.

Lovely deep red hue to the ruby clear body, on top a blanket of foam, sadly it turned into a thin wisp and collar fairly swiftly: still looked good though.

I love this style of beer: sweet and malty with just a little too much alcohol for it's own good (and mine). Bajuvator sits right in the middle of this type: caramel notes dominate both the aroma and taste add plenty of chocolate and a sprinkling of toffee from the malty molasses. A rich fruit malt cake sort of feel from the start, good depth of flavours and most enjoyable.

This doesn't mess around: it's malty sweet and alcoholic: if you are a hop monster it'll leave you cold, however if sweet malts are your thing, buy a crate!

500 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly cloudy nearly opaque reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, molasses, toast, toffee, biscuit, raisin, prune, pear, apple, brown bread, brown sugar, light chocolate, and toasted/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malt notes and fruity esters; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, molasses, raisin, pear, apple, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, light chocolate, and toasted/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, molasses, raisin, pear, apple, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of dark malt and fruity ester flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice doppelbock. All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

I've really been in the mood for some hearty doppelbocks lately. Hope this satisfies my craving for the night. Wow...Looks good from the start. Pours a beautiful chestnut brown into my pilsner glass with all sorts of tiny carbonation rising. A tan 2 finger head formed on the pour that slowly faded to 1 finger of rocky frothiness. Small sticky thin patches of lacing form after each drink.

This beer is loaded with great aromas. There's a fruity sweetness. Warm banana bread starts things off. After the hints of banana bread wonderful smelling maltiness takes over. Sweet dough, mild nutiness, mild milk chocolate and a perfect toasted grain aroma. This stuff smells like a meal. Like a meal you would want on a chilly night. Smells wonderful but could be slightly more pronounced.

Every bit of the smell comes out to show it's true self in the flavor. Banana bread starts things off again there is even a small amount of tartness you encounter when eating a banana. When the beer makes it's way to mid-palate the sweet doughiness moves in along with the nuttiness and milk chocolate. Sweet toffee shows up on the swallow after some warming. Creamy milk smoothness. Zero alcohol in the flavor. Excellent!

Medium bodied but velvety smooth. The smoothness is unbelievable. Carbonation is there pushing things through but is undetectable. Very nice.

Drinkability is outstanding. If this beer wasn't so much like a meal, which it's meant to be, it would get the perfect score for drinkability. I think it would be too filling to drink all night long. I do find myself drinking this one pretty quickly though.

Tucher Bajuvator is an outstanding doppelbock and one that will be in stock at my house for the rest of the winter. An excellent beer at an excellent price. Hard to beat. This definitely satisfied my craving for the night.

A: Pours very dark copper under a massive whipped-cream-thick dark beige head. Somewhat nice lacings.

S: Dark dried fruits and molasses! Malt, malt and malt is what this is all about.

T: RIch sweet dark malts, very bready - almost like Pumpernickel. Dark dried fruits, soy-sauce and strong black coffee.

M: Full body. no carbonation and a sweet, but short aftertaste makes no Doppelbock-lover dissapointed.

O: This is a nice and well-crafted Doppelbock, a very dark one.

3.75/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Chocolate garnet – one of the darker German beers I’ve seen – and loose lumpy beige head that goes pretty fast. Stinging sourdough rye nose with ash, prune and dark cocoa, opening to autumn leaf.
Treacle cakes, some marzipan, lots of plum jam, and a bit of raisin with clovey end and a hot buttered rum thing, too.
Caraway and black cherry finish and humming minty linger. Medium to full, chewy, oily.

Either very sweet and full or under attenuated – almost the total opposite of Maximator. Big, with lots of fruit pastry notes, almost like a winter ale. The hops are missed, but it works as a malt bomb, hiding the ABV well. Still, a bit sickly sweet for me, though it dries out and heats up as it warms and opens.

I decided to mix this up and pour it into a small snifter. This pours deep cloudy red giving off ruby hues around the rim, nearly flat though. At best there’s a touch of dark head on the top but as soon as it shows it is gone.

The classic sweeter side of a stout without the nice robust coffee. Sweet fruits, plumbs, raisins mixed in some molasses.

I have a hard time describing this one. It tastes like hops well WELL faded mixed into a highly mature malt. The malt has the dark fruits that don’t crescendo with the sweetness I expected. The finish has hops but they don’t bite or bitter, but they seem to finish the malt sweetness.

Surprisingly carbonated and rather light in the mouth feel. Almost watery to a degree.

This beer is really off what I think of in a doppelbock. It isn’t as rich or sweet and it takes on a lot of odd flavors I’m not used to as well. It isn’t bad, but it is far from good. Very far….

3.65/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bronze in color with ruby lighting, pretty cool color, but not nearly as attractive as it should be due to a super-fizzy head and sheer lack of lacing. Bubbles like a soda and fizzles out..

Aroma contains some dark fruit but more of a ripe phenolic fruit character. Lots of brown banana alongside raisin. Munich-style malt for sure.

The flavor is really aggressive, and a little off-putting to me. Very sweet, with overripe fruits such as macerated date and bruised banana taking the lead. Finishes with a sharp metallic bite of carbonation and a hint of herbs to offset the malts even the tiniest bit.

Body is fine, carbonation is strangely active given the head situation. For style it's maybe on the light side of medium. I find the black tea-sweet dark fruit flavor here to be a little overwhelming and not up my alley, but no one can deny an interesting brew. Try it for yourself.

a doppelbock that was a tad on the sweeter side but still had that nice fall out on the tongue of any lingering sweetness. this is was toasty and a bit sour. the meatiness was a bit subdued to the fact that it was a bit fruiter than usual. they as the fresh pop subsided the ding and smoke revealed it self a tad. i would say that is on par with most other great doppels and much easier to find in europe.

Not a lot of head on this one, but the nose is incredible. Chewy as all, you get malts, smoked malts, just a nose full full nice grain. Hints of molasses and chocolate.

Like mos doppelbocks, not a lot of head, but what it does have, it can carry aroma.

Flavor is everything you want out of a doppelbock. Chocolate, smoke, malt. Agricultural love my friends. Yum

Mouthfeel is smooth, but also chewy. A lot going on here. Slight warmth for alcohol.

Overall, a grat beer at a great price. I snagged a pint for three bucks, and I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes solid dopplebock or some smoke. Rich, and roasty.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours very dark red-brown with a two finger mocha head that dies too quickly.

The aroma is very odd - bitter chocolate, toffee and coffee with just a little malty sweetness.

The flavor left me going back to the bottle to make sure this wasn't coffee infused. The coffee notes are very, very strong, with some chocolate thrown in - mocha beer. Unfortunately it all tastes a little too burnt and bitter. Some hoppy sweetness but it's not a major player.

It feels a bit watery, far thinner than I expected. The carbonation is fine but if it were creamier it would have added apparent body to the beer.

Nothing special for me. Too bitter and the flavors aren't the caramel/toffee malt that I've come to look for in a dopplebock. Not offensive, but definitely not a favorite.

.5L, Germany, best by 9/17/11.

Pours a brilliant dark amber with ruby highlights and a soda-like head: fizzy and short-lived. Sticks to the glass a tiny bit, but basically no lacing.

Aroma is quite excellent: toffee, chocolate chip cookies, and rich malt. Touch of clean hoppiness cuts through.

Flavor is good, though I must say I do really notice the alcohol on this particular Doppelbock-- there are others that do a much better job of integrating this. Lots of chocolate and overripe, dark fruit on the palate, with a surprisingly dry, bitter finish. Notes of dulce de leche and caramel. The mouthfeel seemed a tad thin and soda-like at first, but it really creams up with the fine carbonation. Despite the detectable booze, this stuff drinks real easy.

This is a nice chocolatey Doppelbock, perfect for the winter. Another great example of the style from Germany.

Picked this bottle up in Chicago.

Pours medium brown with a bit of a garnet hue to it. Good off-white head with a touch of lacing around the edges. Bubbly cap on top as it settles down. Nose is really quite nice with a good amount of sweetness along with some toffee, caramel, and fruit character. The flavor isn't quite as impressive. It lost a bit of the sweetness from the nose and also has a noticeable level of bitterness. Mouthfeel is really nice and I like the overall level of sweetness in this. Slightly bitter. Drinks quite well; glad drabmuh was looking for this and I was able to pick it up, as it's quite good.

Bottle shared by Thorpe during the Outback Bowl, thanks Mike, you knew I was looking for this one. Poured into a DFH signature glass.

Beer is dark brown but clear at the corners, almost red. Big head of small bubbles that leaves lacing, head has some retention on it but eventually gives into peer pressure and collapses, carbonation appears moderate to low but steady. Looks good.

Aroma is a poster boy for doppelbocks everywhere. It's sweet but much darker than expected. There is almost a bitterness to the aroma but mostly the candy is coming through. Caramel and toffee, those are the winners.

Beer is medium in body and lead off is sweetness, malt syrup but not in a cloying way. It's good and clean with a decent finish. There is some bitterness in the back from the grains and the finish is a little dryer than I hoped but overall it's a very good beer and I'd have it again.

S: You can smell the alcohol inside and behind that a faint sweet aroma also you can sense the toasted grain.

T: Very nice flavor, balanced, an slow transformation between sweetness and bitterness, also a bitter chocolate combined with alcohol sensation.

M: As doppelbock you can feel alcohol in the mouth, bitter and then dry sensation at the end that lasts some time.

A - Dark mahogany brown with some dark brown and ruby hues on the edges. Large, creamy, frothy, fizzy, light beige head with decent retention with a thin film of lace left.

S - Dark malt with slightly burned caramel and molasses along with a touch of bready malt. Slight tartness with some date, raisin, and prune. Smells like a sweet molasses cookie with some dates in it.

T - At first there is a touch of slightly roasted dark malt with some caramel and molasses. This provides a sweet base for the dark fruit that comes up a bit later. Dates, prunes, and raisins provide a sweet sticky taste along with an increase in the molasses taste. The fruit also has a very subtle tartness and there is a faint hoppy bitterness that comes out. Overall, like the aroma, it reminded me a bit of a molasses cookie with chunks of date in it, or a sticky dark fruit molasses syrup. Finishes with a touch of spice (particularly pepper).

M - Full to medium body with moderate carbonation. Rich with a slight creaminess that becomes more sticky toward the finish.

D - Decent drinkability. The sweetness brings it down a bit, but it is enjoyable to drink and doesn't kill the palate. A nice beer to sip that I would enjoy every now and then.

Notes: Best before 13/09/10. Well made and a solid example of the style. A fairly sweet beer that made for a nice sipping beer. I enjoyed drinking this, although I wasn't necessarily blown away, rather just continually pleased. Worth trying as it is a tasty beer and a good Doppelbock.

Reviewed from notes--
Poured into pint

Nice deep reddish brown. Tan head is thick and frothy with decent lacing.
Really sweeet caramel smell... slight fruit/banana/herb smell
Taste isn't as sweet as smell leads me to believe. Still sweet, but thought it smelled better than it tasted.
This coats my mouth with a medium body that seems a little undercarbonated to me.
Not bad, but I probably won't get it again. It could be worse, but this one just isn't for me.

Served from a 1 pint 1 fl oz brown bottle with freshness date on back.

Appearance: Translucent dark brown that with a fizzy tan head that leaves an ok lace.

Smell: Aromatic black treacle with dark fruit similar to prunes and raisins Some bread qualities as well.

Taste: Malty. Black treacle again along with the same bread and dark fruit qualities that were in the nose. I can't really make out much in hops except for a slight hoppy type dryness toward the end. Twang of alcoholic acridness and maybe a bit of smoke and unsweetened chocolate also on the end.

Mouthfeel: Rich. Pretty full bodied and smooth. Could be described as syrupy but not in a bad way.

Impressions: Very nice. Bold flavors and lots of them. Bit strong on the alcohol though, so be careful

Doppelbocks are so delicious. I don't know why I don't drink them more often.

A - Pours a chestnut-brown, with a good two fingers of froth and nice retention, some spotty lace.

S - The aroma is pungently raisiny, malty, with a slight cherry nuance, and a tinge of alcohol

T - The flavor is rich and malty, with a sublime sweetness tempered by a caramelized-roasted malt, imparting tons of dark fruit and bread, pumpernickel, raisin, fig, date, cherry, etc. Doppelbocks, in general, are so rich and complex; this is no exception.

M - A little slick for my liking. The only negative.

D - Awesome. Pair it with rich food, or guzzzle it out of a paper bag like a hobo, great either way.

16.9oz bottle, pilsener, no freshness date, but who ever heard of such a thing on a doppelbock?

I poured this softer than I often do and got an OK but not towering lager head. What is there comes in the standard cream color that often pairs with rich red, woody brown brews such as this.

The nose is full of buttery toffee and plump fruit. Plum, caramel, lead, raisin, buttered toast, and alcohol.

Bready malt drizzled with caramel, buttered, and spread with a layer of plum marmalade judiciously sweetened. A very rich package with some, but not as much as I taste in many doppelbocks, clean lager yeast. This is a deep beer. It is loaded with dark overripe fruits and salted caramel but is tempered by a noticeable hop bitterness and leafy noble flavor.

Good carbonation where it could have gone over the top in a lager sort of way.

I wish very much that this were distributed widely. I found it in Springfield, MO several weeks ago and I believe it was the cheapest imported doppelbock on the shelf. Well worth the $2.39, it would be a staple at that price.

Beer is a deep mahogany color with a full head and nice carbonation. It has a sweet aroma that is a mixture of caramel & a trace of fruit. Taste is creamy with some sweetness. A great full body that bathes the mouth and goes down smooth and easy with no alcohol kick you might expect. This is the most drinkable beer I have had in Germany.

Had this beer on tap in a small pub just outside of Nurnberg, Germany.

A - Pours with two fingers of light brown head on top of a perfectly clear, amber-brown body. The foam settles at an average rate and leaves nice lace.

S - Rasiny malt aroma with lots of toffee and dark bread crusts. Some caramel and brown sugar as well. Otherwise very clean with no yeast or hop character, nothing but malt.

T - Sweet, creamy malt up front with toffee and dark caramel flavors. Some raisin and plum notes in the middle that darken in the finish as burnt caramel and light roasted malt character takes over. Lingering dark sugar character in the aftertaste with a hint of spicy alcohol.

M - Thick, smooth body, moderate carbonation, and a sweet finish with some alcohol warmth.

D - Nice doppelbock, the aroma is spot on, but the flavor is just a little lacking. There is a complex blend of rich malt characteristics in the aroma, and while some of this complexity carries over into the flavor, it is not as enjoyable. There is a bit too much roasted grain taste and the finish could be smoother than it is. There are a few superior examples of the style, but this is likely better than most.

Tucher Bajuvator Doppelbock was a medium brown in color with a modest beige head that rapidly faded to a thin collar.

The aroma was largely a sweet malt with a prunish background.

The taste was caramel malt sweetness and biscuity. Bajuvator really had an enjoyable flavor to it.

It looked to be a little thin in mouth feel, but as it warmed, it firmly established itself as medium bodied. Carbonation was sufficient for the style.

Drinkability was very good, the ABV was reasonable and the flavor excellent. I would have loved to have another.

A - Poured into a big mug. Dark mahogony body with some deep ruby hues. Dark brown in the dead middle of the beer where light can't quite make it through. Foamy 2-finger off-white/khaki head that fades pretty quickly settling to a 1/8-inch cap on top. Very nice sticky lacing on the glass.

S - Dark ripe fruits, especially cherries. Strong malty backbone with some chocolate notes. Just a touch of alcohol in the back. Somewhat bready and more so as it warms.

T&M - Big and malty up front then the sweetness of ripe cherries comes through. Medium carbonation lends a slight dry feeling. Chocolate notes on the tail end of the malt. The alcohol is noticable only in the way that it lends a really nice spiciness to this beer. Other spice flavors in this beer I can't quite put my finger on.

D - Hardly notice the ABV. It is well hidden in this beer and lends a great spiciness to it. Great flavors all around and not overpowering in the cherry department. I'd love to sip this all night.

Tucher makes an exceptional Weiss and especially a dunkel that is the most delicious of all German beers I have tried so I was open to a dopplebock, and not only for the higher alcohol count.

The dark flowing and medium carbonation of this beer lured me in and its smells included fruit, yeast, oats and grains, a little lemony hint.

The taste blew me away with an abundance of bold wheat and oats, tiny spice, very little hop, then sweetness. What a tasting experience.

Drinkable and smooth, worthy of another try, and another.

Actually I stumbled upon it and I can't find it other than one little store I was in. I have to go back and set it up for my beer club as this month's winner.
