The beer as it sets in my Leute Bokbier glass an extremely dark garnet, with a monstrous light tan head that is also frothy in texture, with the lace a sticky sheet to conceal the glass. Nice aroma of toasted grain, earthy, with a malt and Carmel sweetness also noticed start is quite sweet and fairly well malted, top is light to medium in feel. Finish is mellow in carbonation the hops merciful and benign in their spiciness, definite belly warming sensation from the 10 percent ABV, a quite good doppelbock, and one I see rarely, in fact got this one in an order from Liquid Solutions (587 characters)

Primátor Double Bock is quite dark with a brown head that quickly vanishes, leaving just a ring on the beer's surface.

It has a very nice smell. Sweet and molasses-like. Very much like a double bock.

I can sum up the taste in one word: wow. This is very sweet and chewy with roasted flavors backed up by a quite high alcohol level. The only other double bock I regularly drink is Spaten's Optimator. This is sweeter and creamier than that lager. I've rated Primátor a half-point lower on taste because it's almost too sweet and syrupy. But Primátor's alcohol content is almost 3 percentage points stronger.

Its mouthfeel is very smooth and glassy. It almost coats your mouth with its syrup-like character.

A good double bock to enjoy in moderation. And I'll have to try more of the style, having been quite impressed so far with but a tiny sampling. (864 characters)
