This pours a dark brown color with a thick, foamy beige color. The aroma is very bold with malts. The taste is sweet, complex, and malty. There is a decent amount of carbonation mixed in with the hints of fruit and dried fruit. Very interesting taste and quite well made.

Beautiful dark auburn color with a ruby glint. Plenty of foam in the big chalice. Rich, smooth, and endlessly malty. It may be sticky on the countertop but it's a pleasant mouthful of suds with that warm Sugar Daddy taste. Aroma is pure caramel and hot grainy baked pastries.

Sweet like a pecan roll but tangy with the bitter edge of hops and the dark roasted grains. Flavors of unfermented malt with a whiff of alcohol and the beery tang. Marvelous dark caramel flavor that goes on and on. This must be one of the best sweet beers ever devised.

This really defines the style of the massively malty German beer. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Pours black, some ruby hues when held into the light. One finger beige head, low retention, but long lasting sticky lace.
Smell is not so strong really. Surprisingly subtle roasted malts. Nuts, dark chocolate, faint toffee and raisin.
Taste is stronger than the smell, with nice burnt caramel, milky chocolate, molasses, not extremely sweet, but just enough. It's crisp from some nice juicy plums, dark grapes and figs, also citrus zest, which keeps the nutty earthiness from the nose way in the back. Sweet coffee towards the finish, along with some German hoppiness (tiny hint of metal too).
Medium carbonation, velvety smooth. Warm alcohol. Clean almost dry finish.
A great refreshing doppelbock, lacks the "heaviness" of others and is really quite tasty.

330ml bottle. Snifter glass. Very dark brown color, deep ruby tints to the light. Light beige froth shows good retention. Caramel & sweet toasted malt aromas, chocolate & extract of licorice hues as well as notes of prune & dats to the nose. Creamy & roasted upfront. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Dense texture & silky palate. Chocolate & licorice all over. Sweet toasted finish & fruity aftertaste with hints of burnt malts. Good job !!
