4.03/5  rDev +17.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.5

Super dark, almost black and opaque. Big fluffy head, greasy and slick. Delicate sugary lacing all over the glass. Strong sense of mocha and cinnamon toast to the aroma. Wow, big mouthfeel enhanced by low carbonation. Massively chocolate flavors, notes of sweetened plum and spice. Hopping is decent for such a malt monster, hidden, but the finish is peppery and gravelly, and is enhanced by raw alcohol. And at 10% ABV -- there is plenty of alcohol in this "Uber Bock". I missed some of a Doppel's mellow butteriness here, and its a little sticky and cloying for me, but make no mistake that this is a big beer to be reckoned with.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served ice cold, deep dark brown with an overflowing frothy head that held through the glass. Tons of grain and malt on the nose, strong and pleasant. Tons of malty sweetness but not overly aggressive. Some caramel, baker's chocolate, molasses. Some light spice on the finish. Plenty thick for the carbonation. Very drinkable given the ABV, that eventually sets in.

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

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.
