2.91/5  rDev -16.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.

3.64/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

From: Binny's, Bolingbrook, IL
Date: None, but "375" stamped on back of label
Glass: Ayinger bock glass

Primator's Doppelbock is an intensely focused doppelbock, that emphasis being on dark, dried fruit (raisins, figs, prunes) with accents of caramel, roasted malt, and ethanol. Somewhat curiously, the emphasis on toasted bread and caramel are very much subdued in this beer. In this way, it has similar qualities to a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, which I was immediately reminded of upon drinking. For $3 per 500ml bottle, this was an interesting doppelbock, one definitely skewed away from style, but still enjoyable. Tempting to revisit.

Pours a 1.5cm tall head of beige to light tan colored foam, made up of small bubbles that yield a rather foamy appearance, with average retention of roughly one minute, fading to a thin film of lace atop the body, thicker around the perimeter of the glass. Beer is a dark brown to black color, with light changing nothing in regards to the darkness of color. As the body is opaque, no carbonation is visible through it.

Aroma is a strong mixture of raisin, dried black fig, 120L caramel malt, roasted malt, and ethanol, the ethanol becoming more apparent as the beer warms.

Flavor is of heavy raisin, roasted malt and 120L caramel malt, brown sugar syrup, borderline cloying, but actually
Front of palate detects heavy malt sweetness (pale with emphasis on caramel and roasted), a blend of raisins with brown sugar and roasted malt, black dried figs, dried plums, and slight anise. Mid-palate is intensely of dark, dried fruit, ethanol, and sweetness: heavy raisin, dried plum, brown sugar syrup, roasted malt, and anise. Back of palate detects ethanol, dark dried fruit (raisin, prune, black fig), heavily toasted bread, and dried fruit ester sweetness blended with roasted malt. Aftertaste of raisins, brown sugar, molasses, roasted malt, and substantial ethanol.

Beer is medium-heavy in body, with carbonation of medium-low intensity, resulting in a smooth, somewhat foamy, slightly watery mouthfeel. Ethanol is easily felt in the nostrils, palate, and back of throat, as heat or burning. Closes dry, with substantial stickiness on the palate and lips.

3.61/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Long neck 500ml bottle with a simple black and gray label. On this label is a red rectangle with "Primator" in shiny gray letters. Below the name are 3 gold medals and a fake red wax stamp. The back label contains all the mandatory US info and a bottle number of some kind. The large neck label has the brewery's crest and everything you want to know about the beer.

I poured this high proof Doppelbock into my Samuel Smith Imperial pint glass. Out of the bottle came a beer that looked like a solid black ink beer. When I got a good look at it in the glass, I saw that it was more of a dark mahogany brown with a dark ruby center. Either color was fine by me. On top was a creamy 3/4 to 1 inch light tan colored head of foam. This head of foam had great retention! It dropped down to a 1/4 of an inch and stayed with the beer until the last drop of beer was gone. The head of foam was the icing on the cake. It's a sight to see!

For some stupid reason, I found this aroma to be sleeping. I know the aroma could have been maltier, but it decided to keep the malt down to a minimum. This was a slightly malty aroma with some sweet caramel, a splash of chocolate, a hint of black cherry, and then this sleeping aroma finished up with a faint aroma of hops and alcohol. I thought the alcohol would come out more in this 10.5% beer. Of course that's what I said about the malts. The aroma was fine, but it had more potential to be better than this.

After my first sip of this Doppelbock, I was surprised to find this beer very sweet. Not sugar sweet or candy sweet. It was just a shade under that. The taste was sweet with toasted caramel malts, those caramel square candies, a pinch of brown sugar, a drop of molasses, a subtle hint of raisins and plums, and then it finishes up with a mild taste of sweet alcohol. Even the alcohol couldn't get away from being sweet. I like my Doppelbocks maltier than sweet, but going down the sweet road isn't all that bad. The first few sips is where it shined, but then the sweetness came swooping in and took care of that.

This almost too sugary Doppelbock was medium bodied. It was near the full bodied border, but I think it was the sugar from going over the line. As for the aftertaste, that was sweet too. Who would have guessed that? It was sugar sweet with brown sugar, molasses, toasted caramel malts, regular caramel, and a little sweet alcohol to round off this beer. Around the half glass mark is where you'll feel the 10.5% ABV start to kick in.

It was nice for this beer to walk down the sweet road. Just for once I wanted this beer to divert off the sweet road and go down malt alley. This beer had tunnel vision. It was sticking to the sweet road. It was a nicely priced high ABV beer. In case you don't like the sweet taste, you can always use it as a cheap sleep aid.

A nice finger of tan head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is a blunted roasted malt and mild chocolate. A bit weird.
The taste is rich and sweet and sweeter. Wow.
The texture is sticky with low carbonation and medium body.
The super sweet taste was tough to handle and the aroma was interesting.

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

This pours a dark, dark brown—almost black—with tight foam which rapidly dissipates.
It has a distinct malty-sweet aroma with some caramel notes. Mouthfeel is immediately boozy—you can definitely tell the ABV from first sip on. It tastes sweet and malty with notes of light cocoa and a caramel sweetness. Oddly there is a whisper of tin on the finish that is unwanted and distracts from the beer as a whole. Otherwise it warms well and makes a solid sipper.
(And, as an aside, mixes well with colas.)

500ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

A - Small tan head from a vigorous pour has some big bubbles. Dark brown in color with good clarity. No lacing left on the glass and the head completely dissipated.

S - Rich with some sweetness. Complex caramel aroma approaching raisin-like quality. Alcohol sits in the background.

T - Rich caramel all over the flavor which is a little on the sweet side. Slight chocolate tone with a red fruit/raisin quality. Clean finish along with considerable alcohol warmth.

M - Full bodied, sweet, light carbonation.

O - Very smooth and full malty flavor. A little on the boozy side, better doppelbocks have a bit more drinkability. A little too sweet and overly fruity malt.

Told Matt the beer guy that I was looking for a good bang for the buck beer thet was not too hoppy. I have been getting into doppel bocks. He denoted raisons and alcohol, and I think he was right on. Like many doppelbocks I had to aggitate on the pour to get any significant head. Minimal lacing, and just a thin layer of white around the perimeter of surface. A dark coffee color with brilliant red when held up to light. Nice carbination.
The nose is fantastic and really reminds me of the quads and crand cru beers I love. The taste is very dark fruit and raisons, however the alcohol is not hidden as much as some of the higher end beers. My wife mentioned the syrup flavor, but this beer gets better as it warms up- and like many of the dark fruit, malty beers, they are great for sipping and flavors change as the temperature does. At 10.5%, this beer can really hit you...

Enjoyed this bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours dark brownish/black hue with a thin off-white head that ends in a wispy lace leaving a partial trail down the glass.

S: Sweet licorice and malt aroma.

T: Similar to the smell the flavor consists of sweet licorice and malt which finishes on the sweet side..

M: Heavy body and medium carbonation. Had a syrupy quality too it.

O: I’m not a huge fan of double-bocks – always seem a little too sweet for me.

O: At $3.29 for a 500mL, I consider it a good value for a Czech double bock. I would purchase again if I were in the mood for a sweet, dark, malty beer.

Primator Double Bock (Double 24 Specialni Tmave) has a thin, beige head and a dark brown (ruby under light) appearance with some bubbles and little lacing. The aroma is of alcohol right up front and some dark-roasted, sweet barley malts. Taste is of dark cherries, alcohol, dark-roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and molasses. Mouthfeel is medium, and Primator Double Bock finishes semi-dry, syrupy, and super-sweet, yet not disgustingly so. Overall, this is an excellent beer. Drink with trepidation!

3.73/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a warm reddish brown, clear throughout with a tan head atop it. Retention isn't great but who expected it to be on a 10.5% ABV beer? A thin film is all that remains after a minute or so.
Smell is malt, peat, smoke and caramel. Well balanced.
Taste is malt, smoke, whiskey with an odd, sugary sweetness. It isn't a bad sweet note, just unexpected. The balance is pretty good but the the alcohol does tend to stand above the rest somewhat.
Full bodied with a light effervescence up front. Warming, especially in the throat, this drinks easily at the lips but says you should slow down at the swallow. A strong drink for certain, but a good one.

Pours a cloudy brownish with an off-white head. Nose is bread, maltose, and cardboard. A little bit nutty and toasted, light alcohol notes, and some sugar. The flavor is sweet sugar, maltose, bread, and caramel. As with the aroma, some toasted malt character, a bit of cardboard/paper, and a bit of alcohol.

2.13/5  rDev -39%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

Poured from a 500mL. capped bottle (no date) into a pint glass.

A strong pour yields a 1/2-finger tan-colored head that quickly dissipates in seconds to a minute dusting and thin foam ring. The body is a deep dark brown with traces of amber crimson when held to light. Very little lacing can be seen at any point during consumption.

The nose can be summed up as dark, roasted malts and booze. The malt gives notes of caramel, burnt nuts, and roasted coffee beans. The booze gives notes of cough syrup and soy sauce. Together, these components create a very rich, complex, and slightly off-putting nose.

Like the nose, each sip starts dark and sweet with notes of caramel, molasses, and cough syrup alcohol. As the beer is swallowed, dark fruit and brown sugar flavors come out. An overlying sweetness is present during all stages of the tasting.

Full bodied with moderate carbonation, this beer is the epitome of the word "sipper." The body is thick and coating with a sticky syrup-like quality. The carbonation is only barely noticeable. Even just a little more carbonation would help this beer's drinkability considerably.

Strong, malty aroma has an overtone of caramel and hints of horehound and apple. It pours a barely translucent dark coppery brown with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, light tan head. Mouth-filling malty flavor has a strong caramel overtone and is rather sweet but not cloying. I get hints of apple, hops, and - is that butterscotch? The subtle bitterness offsets the sweetness somewhat. Full-bodied texture has a fairly strong and persistent fizz that leaves a tingly, sweet, subtly hoppy-bitter finish. If you like bocks, I heartily recommend this one.

So I thought this was a legitimate German doppelbock when I bought it, and only just found out --halfway through --that it’s basically Czech jet fuel. Pours dark mahogany with a large but fizzy brown head. Aroma is rubbery with lots of sweet boozy bready notes. Flavor is extremely sweet, homemade caramel, rich toffee, and alcohol. Lacks the roundness and drinkability of the real deal German stuff. Like a malt liquor doppelbock.

(Served in a dimple mug)

A- This beer pours a clear but dense brown garnet glow with a thick head that sticks to the glass with each sip. The head is light tan and creamy and is supported by a gentle carbonation.

S- The rich pot caramel and toffee aroma has some sweet dark toasted malt with a hint of iced coffee buried underneath. The finish has a soft green hint.

T- The sweet toffee is a full flavor with notes of dark caramel and a nice finish of estery sweet malt.

M- The medium-full mouthfeel has a touch of alcohol as it warms that helps cut the sweetness a bit.

O- The full flavor is very sweet and it would be nice to have a bit more alcohol to cut the sweetness or a bit less sweetness. The second glass becomes almost liquid candy.

Dark Chestnut brown color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is malt, dark fruit and sweet. A medium bodied dopplebock. Malts are fruity, slightly burnt sugar and sweet. Touch of toffee and some spices. Slightly spicy hops. Way over balanced toward the big sweet malts. It a nice dopplebock if you can get past the nearly overpowering sweetness. Definitely a sipping beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is very sweet.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pilsner glass. Pours a dark brown, with amber highlights and a thick, 2 finger tan head that slowly reduces. Makes a "thick" sound as it is poured.

Has a rich, malty aroma, with heavy maple, molasses coffee and burnt creme smells. Smells almost like one of those sweet coffee drinks sold at Starbucks.

Whoa! Thick, sweet and syrupy, like a coffee liqueur, this is an intense sweet malt experience. Tasting more like a flavor extract than a beer, the alcohol warmth and residual coffee sweet make this taste more like dessert than a beer. I think the closest I can compare this taste to is one of the Southern Tier dark water series, like the Mokah or the Creme Brûlée. This is a little more thin than than, and not quite as roasted tasting, but is still more of an ice cream topping than it is a beer.

Thick and syrupy, with a mildly dry and bitter finish that is overwhelmed by the sugar blanket covering the tongue.

This bottle sat in my cellar for well over 8 months, and frankly, I think it helped a lot. I tried another over Christmas when it was fresher, and it was a harsher, more alcohol-forward brew. Tis is a much smoother, though sweeter, tasting beer than when I last had it. Still, you've got to like really sweet, strong beers to dig this 10.5% monster.

A. A slow, steady pour yielded a finger and a half of bubbly head. Body is a dark translucent reddish brown, like a dark mahogany. A curtain of bubbles can be seen slowly climbing their way to the top when this beer is held up to the light.

S. The aroma is sweet, like dark fruits soaked in pancake syrup, the fake stuff, not the maple. You know what I mean. I also get whiffs of malt and booze. Candy sugar also present, as well as a slight nuttiness when it warms up a bit.

T. Whoa. Sweet, syrupy malt up front. Then it whips into what tastes like the liquid interpretation of a nut and dark fruit salad that has been covered in sugar and caramelized.

M. Medium to heavy bodied. Coats the mouth well, doesn't dry. Kind of relies on the carbonation to keep her going though.

O. Way. Too. Sweet. If it was thicker you could pour it on your pancakes and have an alcoholic syrup.

Found this bottle at Heinen's in Hudson last weekend.

Live review.

I hadn't really looked closely at the bottle before now, it was merely a cheap doppelbock that I had not tried before.

10.5%? Holy cow, not exactly what I wanted this late at night. It's open now... Bavarian AND Mavarian malts? Where have these mystical Mavarian malts been all my life? Lol...

Dense looking, fairly opaque due to the dark color, though it has a certain small amount of clarity visible. A cherry and deep toasted oak color with a head of a couple fingers. Some droopy lace but nothing very substantial. Decent head retention over time.

Smells very sweet, lots of dark candied fruits. Raisins and dates are dominant.

Wow before I could taste anything else I noticed how boozy this was! Very heavy alcohol burn and sweet esters. This is possibly the sweetest doppelbock I have yet tasted as well as being the most boozy. Neither are benefiting this beer for me. The malts are very caramel like, but the residual sugars overpower the beer with fruit and caramelized brown sugar flavors. Very "meh" to be frank.

Hot hot hot! Primator is boozy through and through. Otherwise, it is soft and creamy on the palate.

Overall this is nothing I was too thrilled with, I am glad it was fairly cheap. Definitely not worth paying for a second time.

I got a bottle of Primátor Double Bock Beer last week for $2.99 at The Lager Mill. I been on a Doppelbock kick lately so I thought I would continue the journey with this baby and see how it stack up to the others I have tried. It had no visible bottling date. Poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a imperial pint glass.

A- The label is pretty plain and is a different color then the picture shown, it doesn't look horrible, just plain. It poured a deep dark brown color with some ruby highlights. It had two fingers worth of off white head that died down to a nice layer that stayed the rest of the time.

S- Damn this beer smells like some shitty earthquake malt liquor I bought a while back, man that shit was horrible so it is kind of off putting that it smells the same. The aroma is basically candied sugar, molasses, and booze. Theres a little bit of dark fruits in their but they are mainly masked by the booze aroma.

T- This has to be one of the sweetest beers I have ever tasted. It is so sweet it almost reminds of some southern ice tea from McDonalds, just for too much sweetness for any beer to have. The dark dried fruits are more prominent in the flavor with raisins sticking out the most, but just like in the aroma the flavor is mainly dominated by candied sugar and booze. The taste reminds me of a dessert sherry, not my kind of thing.

M- Full bodied and syrupy with good carbonation.

Overall I was not a fan of this beer. It was just a sweet, syrupy, malty mess. The booze wasn't as harsh as the aroma led me to believe but it was still fairly noticeable and got worse the more it warmed up. If it wasn't for my brother helping me out I may have been hard pressed to finish the bottle and may have encountered my first drain pour, but luckily backup was available. It drank very similar to earthquake malt liquor and thats not a good thing. I won't be drinking this again, for sure the worst doppelbock to date. If you don't like super sweet beers then don't pick this up because it is sweet as hell. A bad first impression for Pivovar Náchod a.s., I hope all their beers aren't this bad.

Pours a dark brown that appears ruby red when held up to the light. Medium off-white head that diminishes fast. Scent is boozy with strong dark fruit aromas. A lot of sweetness as well. Taste is VERY SWEET! A little too sweet for my taste. The dark fruit flavors and faint chocolate notes are very tasty and appealing, but maybe just a bit too sweet. Strong sweet malt flavors as well. Definitely a sipper. Mouthfeel slightly syrupy and flat cola-like. Full of flavor though. Drinkability is not too high...don't really know if I could drink this whole 500ml to myself. Overall, great beer for what you pay. This beer is no more than 3 dollars, and you get a nice buzz off of it I'm sure. If I were drinking for that purpose, then I would drink this over malt liquor any day.
