*Reviewed on 18.07.2005
The beer pours a dark brown base, medium caramel colored head, solid retention and nice lacing throughout most of the beer. The smell is heavy of malts, smells like coffee and chocolate - unusual for a doppel.
The taste is perfection, strong on malt taste but not overpowering, the taste is roasty, hints of coffee/chocolate, the aftertaste is the best of any beer I've tasted. The beer is never harsh on the mouth but the head retention isn't perfect to give the beer the best of all smoothness. This is such a great beer, and I would have another, a slow session of this one is best.
Final Thought: This and Aventinus are the clear champions in the bock variety, which has quickly become my favorite style in German brews. A classic beer!

330ML bottle with no date, poured into my Troegs mug...
A - Dark muddy brownish/black color with a perfect one finger head and nice tan head. A sticky lace holds throughout consumption
S - Caramel and malts are predominant for me. Very good aroma that makes you crave it
T - Dark fruits, caramel, toffee, butterscotch and with a malty backbone. Absolutely perfect for the style
M - Smooth, medium body with a low carbonation. Ultra smooth finish
O - Doppelbocks aren't usually my thing but there's no way you can't appreciate how great this beer is. The 6.7% masks amazingly well. I could crush this beer so easily. The unique flavors meld perfectly together. This is absolutely world class and I'm kicking myself for continually passing it up time after time
