Strong aroma is fruity with a malty undertone and hints of yeast and caramel. It pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, off-white head. Crisp, malty and fruity flavor has hints of caramel and butterscotch, as well as a strong if not fierce alcohol nip. Lively, fizzy texture has quite a sharp edge and leaves behind a fairly persistent and pleasant fizz.

16.9oz bottle purchased at Mid Columbia Wines & Spirits in Kennewick, Washington, for $3.83. It comes with a cheezy/bordeline: sexist label and a huge necktag that loudly proclaims it’s 12 % abv. Been a while since I’ve had a booze bomb from what was formerly a part of the Soviet Union. No obvious freshness date.

Poured a clear, gold color, and featured lots of tiny bubbles arcing skyward. Head was big, creamy, off-white and short-lived. Within about three minutes it had receeded to a thin skiff atop the beer, with some minor lace along the sides of my glass.

The nose was of soft floral hops and pears. As it warmed, some ginger notes became notable as well.

Bigger flavor than I would have thought from the aroma. The soft floral hops are there, along with some fruity notes reminiscent of pears and apples. There’s a also a ginger-like spiciness and a bigger, bready maltiness than was present in the aroma. In the background, midway through the taste, a warming alcohol sensation becomes obvious – no surprise, given it’s highly touted alcohol percentage. Slightly dry zap at the swallow. Asit warmed, the booziness became much more overbearing. Towards the end, it became something of an ordeal.

The body of this beer is closer to full than medium. Coating, sugary mouthfeel.

Definitely a booze bomb, a big beer that reaches the upward end of my tolerance spectrum for sweetness. It’s not bad tasting, but I think one bottle will be enough. It’s overly sweet nature combined with it’s high alcohol content has me already contemplating how my head will feel later. Yet another case of too big a bottle - a 12oz (or, more likely 11.2 given it's Euro-ness) would have been much more enjoyable.

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

Poured into a Stone Imperial glass. Bright, crystal clear orange, almost yellow. Lots of tiny carbonation bubbles that don't lead to much of a head. Initially popped up to about a single finger but dissipated quite rapidly. No lace at all.

Smell is really quite nice. It kind of smells like a Barleywine. Sweet and rich, malt smells. It also (as expected) has some bread aromas. There is also some alcohol.

Taste is not too bad. Very sweet malt. Maybe some dank orange flavors. I put the rest of the bottle back in the fridge because I think the musty yeast will take over if this is too warm. There is some alcohol tastes but pretty well masked other than the warmness.

Mouth is like the aroma, Barleywine ish. There isn't much carbonation, fairly flat but really smooth. A bit warm on the belly but not unwelcome.

Overall.. When my local bottle shop owner gave me this sample, I read the "12% Alc. by Vol." bright red tag around it's neck and saw it was a Dopplebock. "Okay... I'll try it but don't expect me to like it" is what I told him. I was very wrong. It is not a bad brew at all. Really flat and sweet but not the uber dand musty bomb I thought it was gonna be. At $2.50 for a half liter bottle it is a must try.

A. Poured into a mug, got a finger and a half of head that was gone in a minute, and I mean gone. Not even a ring left. Color is straight amber.

S. Immediate smell is malt and dark fruit, but a slight bourbon aroma makes itself apparent rather quickly. Quite a pleasant smell actually.

T. Taste is to smell, although I get caramel where the bourbon smell comes in, and only the slightest hint of alcohol at the end.

M. Heavy bodied but not sticky. Does need the carbonation to help it out.

The color is crisp, clear, and orange. The taste was totally unexpected. Like red hot candies, a little bit of caramel, and oak. The finish even has some chile heat to it. It's incredibly complex, but I was a big fan. Even with that high of an ABV, I didn't think the alcohol was overpowering.

i wasnt sure what to expect with this one. the color of this before/after is ok looks like beer...maybe a slightly more orange-ish hue. the smell is very tame almost non existent... so far this beer is nothing special...but when i tasted it i was impressed. there are loads of honey comb notes and a great smokiness, also i expected a strong alcohol taste due to the 12%abv but there isnt any. pretty impressed that the cool pull it off with out that after burn you get in your mouth after a lot of higher alcohol brews.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Beer pours an orange color. Has minimal head and lace, and a small amount of froth. The beer is obviously high in alcohol content, but yet does not have the strong,pungent sweet taste most beers of this caliber carry. The aroma is sweet, maybe some cinnamon or vanilla. The taste is surprisingly smooth, has a sweet taste, and you can taste the spices.

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

Frosty orange-brown in the thickest parts of the glass that fades to yellow around the edges. Around one finger of sudsy head that dissipates almost immediately, leaving no lacing. The high ABV is apparent in the aromas-it has a nutty, bourbon-like scent accompanied by caramel and sweet fruits. Tastes of roasted caramel, sweet fruits and spice. Very pleasant to drink-has no overpowering alcohol flavor.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Serving: Bottle into an ale glass.

A: Poured a slightly cloudy copper color. Not much head to speak of. Not much carbonation either. Underwhelming really.

S: Smells of cinnamon and brown sugar and maybe ginger. A hint of alcohol. Very nice.

T: On the malty/sweet side. Brown sugar taste is evident, with a hint of ginger and spice. Unfortunately that's really all I taste here really.

M: Sort of flat, reminds me of a beer that was left out too long. Burns a little bit from the alcohol too. Not so great.

O: Another reviewer said this was a european attempt at a fiour loko and I can see what they meant.
