Very sweet. Cloying. Strange astringent aftertaste. Very unpleasant.

Hard to review this beer. It smells fantastic; all the rich malty notes from quality dark european beers like toffee, raisin, molasses, etc. The taste follows the aroma but it's just too sweet for me to drink the whole bottle. Mouthfeel is full, a little syrupy. Sweetness lingers after the swallow. So although I couldnt finish the bottle because the sweetness was a bit cloying, I can tell its well made, and is what it is, really. I can others enjoying it if you have a sweet tooth. I imagine it would go well with game meat.

The classic and traditional altbier makers of Germany show a strong and stern hand as they flirt with dopplebock and barleywine strengths, complexities and intensities.

Their Doppelsticke tumbles into the glass with a brazen garnet color and a creamy thin head with tremendous staying power and lace. As the nose plunges in, it's filled with masculine sweetness of molasses, brown sugar and sugar cane. Decorated with mild vinous spice, hints of rum and fruitcake come about.

Semi-sweet and leathery, the beer's earthy sweetness is redolent of prune, plum, red grape and fig. As the decadently sweet taste folds in on itself, it pulls in flavors of port and sherry wines with savory toasted taste. Surprisingly arid on the middle, hints of chocolate, coffee and tobacco and herbal tea plays delicately heading into finish.

The beer's full body makes it a slow sipping affair, But the thinning effects of aged acidity and alcohol keeps the taste palatable and manageable to avoid cloying. Its long and savory finish is chocked full of umami and spiced rum.

Had this at Christmas and it massively exceeded my expectations. Wonderfully balanced, quirky beer with a complex mix of flavours - caramel, raisins, prunes, lots of malt - not overly sweet. Shares some characteristics with Doppelbocks, but the alcohol is much better disguised. Really hope to track this down again.

brown, copper.
Smells boozy, like an old ladys perfume and some raisins
Taste like fugde (very sweet butter) with some ogange zest and a quite nice bitter finish.

A: Dark brown hit clear, about the hue of cola. Head was half a finger of off-white, but it faded pretty quickly, leaving just a trace of lacing.

S: Perfumy, with distinct chocolate and raisin notes. Maybe a hint of dark rum as well.

T: Very sweet, cloyingly so initially. I get a taste of orange with chocolate as well. Buttery diacetyl makes a strong appearance later, before a bitter but not overwhelming hops finish.

M: Fairly well carbonated, yet quite moist. The warmth (almost burn) of the ABV is pretty potent.

O: A nice dessert beer, but pretty intense with some rough edges.
