An extremely boozy taste with a hint of sweet and chocolatey taste. Very hard to finish. Like a sweeter ruinten but more alcoholic and crapier

I'm a doppelbock fan, and I like a few other brews I've tried from this brewer. At $2.39/500 mL I had to pick this up.

Deep brown-red, fizzy tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells like pancake syrup, booze, and dark bread. Tastes like prunes soaked in alcohol, with a sickly sweet finish. Aftertaste is overly sweet. Full, sticky mouthfeel.

At first, I thought this was going to be brutal. But with time (and temperature increase?), it's grown on me. Good thing I have a sweet tooth. This brewery makes better beers than this (Maibock for sure), but for the price point, it's not too shabby.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, nearly opaque, with a fine one finger light tan head with great retention and sheets of lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, dried citron, mild cherry, sweet with slight oxidation and booziness. Flavor is big dried dark and light fruit, caramel, hints of chocolate; sweet and warming. Medium to full bodied with mild syrupy texture. A rich, sweet, flavorful doppelbock that seems to skirt to the edge of cloying. There is a definiate booziness to the finish, but the flavors are rich enough that it finishes with hints of an apertif, which is a nice flavor transition. Not for the sweet adverse, but I liked this a lot more than I expected to. I'd definitely get this again if I were in the mood for sweet malt.

This big beer is just what I expected. Big, bad, sweet and pungent.

It's very dark with little grad or lace. The aroma isn't strong but it is telling of the big sweet taste to come. The taste is a tongue full. It could stand to have more variation, like a smoke flavor or something, but it's just sweet.

The aftertaste is thick and sweet and it doesn't go away. Like other big bocks it leaves me wanting something else, but it's huge and not to expensive.

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Strong aroma of malt
Head average (3 cm), fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm layer
No lacing
Body deep garnet, clear
Flavor very strong malt, no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl, quite sweet but with a slightly bitter and alcoholic aftertaste
Palate full, creamy, carbonation lively

Meh – IMHO barely drinkable, certainly nothing to recommend it except cost/ABV. The Czechs should stick to lagers and pils.

Pours a dark reddish brown, with Coca-Cola style foam on the top. Big fizzy bubbles. Smells a bit like raisins and phenols. On first sip, this beer does very little to hide the 10.5% alcohol. Flavors of raisin and phenols. Absolutely one of the most harsh Doppelbocks I've ever had.

Falls quite a bit flat compared to the dark, rich Doppelbocks I'm used to. It does, however, pack quite a punch in the ABV. Drinkable, but I'd probably try to avoid it unless trying to get tipsy in a serious hurry.
