Ooooh....love having this one with a mouth-watering Wiener Schnitzel.... Gorgeous, dark chestnut/rubyish color with a fine, creamy, long-lasting head. Great malty nose, with semi-sweet and caramel and toffee notes! Very nice body, and pleasant smoothness... Mucho malt taste, with warming alcohol, but has a slightly bitter finish. Much better as it warms. Verry nice Doppel!! Have enjoyed many of these while at the Gasthof Butz, in Rothenburg o.d. Tauber. Best enjoyed while seated outside, laxing in the sunshine! Zum Wohl!!

16 oz. bottle. This beer is a beauty. Clear dark ruby-brown color, foamy, fluffy head, off-white, and inviting. A butterfly with sore feet, would even like this one. Perfectly sweet roasted carmel maltness dominate the nose. Same sweetness tasted throughout the bottle, lots of carmel malt, noticable alcohol finish. Medium body, slightly thinner than the celebrator, less bitter also. Easy to drink very nice dopplebock. IMO, I would list them 1.Celebrator 2. Tucher 3. Salvator. Delicious, sweet, and inviting.

mountains of malt here. more along the lines of a sammy's doppel rather than a celebrator, optimator, or salvator. it has a buttery smooth mouthfeel that neutralizes the spice...and hides the alcohol punch quite well. not too complex and layered which allows it to slide down much too quickly, scoring it high in drinkability. one can detect the more choco/caramel hints rather than fruitcake overtones. pretty damn good if you ask me.

MMMmmmmm!

The only thing that kept this from becoming my favorite d-bock was the fact that I had an Allgauer Cambonator right before this one.

Barring the first experience, there are times in your life when a single beer can just melt all your troubles away. This is one of those beers. The pour, the sniff, the drink, and the swallow all meld into one glorious magic carpet ride--a seamless thread of experience, one inseparable from the other.

To break a beer like this into its component qualities is to take away its very life.

Sure, its a dopplebock. But that's only the beginning.

Dark ruby in color.. with a distinct outer grey ring of foam. Creamy lace. Slightly musty/sweet smell. Lots of gas on the tongue followed by sweet then nutty flavor. Sweet/bitter/dry finish.

Bajuvator: Deep garnet color, with a light tan head and a head so dense that a tiny drop of it rolled around the top of the foam for at least a minute. Sweet malt aroma. Wow, very nice think chocolate malts with a nice sweet after glow. Sweet long finish with a warm alcohol rolling all the way down. Excellent, as good a doppelbock as I’ve ever had, and I even like the name.

Malt and more malt. Gigantic caramel presence, backed up by the hefty 7.2% abv. Certainly lives up to the designation "strong" doppelbock. Still, quite smooth and easy to drink. I had difficulty getting a good feel for any underlying complexity, and the beer tended to be a little one-dimensional. A quality doppelbock, just not my favorite so far.

Rich and creamy with a wonderful malty palate, slight chocolate finish. Very impressive.

Presentation: Long brown 1 pint European-style bottle. Freshness date scored on the back label.

Appearance: Dark rich chestnut brown that pours a thick off-white head. Healthy looking and retains for quite a while.

Smell: Fruity esters, grape bubble-gum, sweet malts, hints of caramel and alcohol.

Taste: Smooth, syrupy and creamy mouthfeel. The hearty full-bodied richness of the complex malts is staggering. This is a seriously malty beer with loads of buttery toffee, caramel, toasted malts, juicy ripe fruits (grape flavours), chocolate, raw honey and touch of smoke. There's a nice spicy bite, a combination of just enough hop flavour and light bitterness to balance and a very strong alcohol presence that pricks at the palate. Finishes with some spiciness, bit of dryness, bready flavour and sweet alcohol residuals.

Notes: At a hefty 7.2% abv., Bajuvator has got to be one of my favourite Doppelbocks ever. Hell, maybe even one of my favourite beers ever! You can really feel the alcohol in the brew, so look out!

Classified as a "Malt Liquor" on the bottle, for legal reasons, but we all know better than that.
