Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:
Clear, dark and tawny ... inviting if you are into strong dark lagers. Patchy lacing on the glass, a treat to watch it cling after each sip. Very clean malt aroma of lightly toasted Portuguese sweet bread with a ghost of browned apple within. Creaminess is dominant in the mouthfeel with a pinch of crispness, full bodied. The taste buds have a massive, dry malt wall of deep toasted grain to climb with each sip. Hops are on the side with some bitterness to move everything along. Suggestions of peppercorn and dried figs in the backdrop. Maltiness still sticks with the drying finish for the most part, even after the first initial wave of sweetness, which is great to experience compared to some of the other overly sweet bocks brewed in the US.
Believe the hype. This beer has garnered a cult status over the years, and it's a delicious beer that easily ranks within our top Doppelbocks worldwide.

Pours a decent beige head that quickly fades to a thin remnant. Brew is a brilliant copper-caramel color, dark but very clear.
Tons of toffee and caramel in the aroma, plus dark fruits: figs and grapes.
Flavor follows the nose: sweet raisins and grapes, chewy bready malts, tons of caramel and brown sugar. A bit of rum raisin meets fruitcake.
Long, long sticky finish from a light but creamy body. Extremely easy drinking, with no hint of the high ABV, and little sting.
Very tasty dopplebock.
