Interesting fact: The Germans brew doppelbock specifically for exporting, thus the two versions of this beer. And yes, I have the export version. When I was in Germany, many of the people did not know about the doppelbocks. Note: I was in Northern Germany and most of the Doppelbocks are from Bavaria.
This beer pours a nice dark roasted brown color and minimal head. The nose is caramel and roasted malt. There is also a hint of bitterness but it is just right.
The taste is over the top. Lots of caramel, lots of malt, lots of sweet but overall this is a really fine tasting rich beer. The ABV is rather high but that is OK with me!! As I savor this brew, it becomes even better. This is a rather new offering to our area and I will seek this out again. I try lots of beer but not that many stay on my "keeper" list.

500 ml bottle was poured into a mug.
Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a dark brown amber color with no vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Aww man, liquid bread baby. Caramel, toffee, lager yeast, grassy hops, raisins, figs, toasted, and bready malts.
Taste: Nice and malty like a doppelbock should be. Extremely tasty and delicious. A little warm booze too.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little chewy, some booze alcohol, low to medium carbonation, some sweetness, and like eating a meal. Very delicious.
Overall: Got to love German doppelbocks. Especially monks brewing this beer sine 1330. Cheers to the monks who brew this beer and cheers to all the other people who have had the chance to enjoy this treat of a beer.

Poured two inches of cream colored head and a dark ruby body. Decent head retention: head gradually fades to a thin ribbon and leaves sparse sudsy lacing. Smell is of roasty malt and heavy on the dark fruit - some figs, some raisins. Alcohol present. Taste follows the nose. Little bit of booze comes through. Medium-bodied with light carbonation and slightly bitter-sweet. Would maybe have this beer one more time, but no more than that. Not to crazy about tasting those dark fruits in my hocks.
