look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A - medium amount of red around the edges. Off white very tall head that took a while to go down.

S - sweet and somewhat fruity.

T - extremely sweet. No bitterness. Mild alcohol flavor. Did I mention extremely sweet. Actually overly sweet, dessert like.

M - no notable coating or tingle. Mild alcohol tingle in throat.

D - one, max. It is good but so sweet I would not be able to handle not than one, and even then only when in the mood for sugar.

Poured into a glass as a tasting, this brew has a cola color and a light color head. The aroma was very sweet and brown sugar and spicy notes present. The taste had brown sugar, caramel and clove but was over poweringly sweet. This was syrupy and heavy bodied. Not the greatest brew and drinking a full bottle would be tuff.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A - The color of plums and faint grapes.

S - Worchesterchire mixedb with anise, without a doubt.

T - Fruity, almost too fruity for my tastes concerning a doppel. I'm not sure but it seems to me they left some of the heavy sugars left unfermented.

M - The feel is fluid and easy going. I like the way it goes down.

~ Overall this beer is about average... maybe a nit less than average in my opinion. Only because the flavor is on the south side.

Live review. Poured from the 500 ML bottle that I bought at Heinen's in Gates Mills last week for $2.19 on the recommendation of the staff there who reported that they really liked it and that it is a reasonable price. To be honest, buying this was against my better judgement but let's see how I like it anyway.

A Brief light brown head that stuck around for only about 60 seconds over a dark ruby body that lets some light through. Reasonable lacing left on the glass after repeated sips too. 4.0

S Nice malt sweetness and some light smells of dark fruit. Interesting, inviting. 4.0

T Almost too much sweetness but I am glad to report that there is plenty of sweet malt goodness but there is not much depth to the taste, it kind of dissapears quickly as opposed to better examples of the style. 3.5

M Syrupy stickiness that I like but it dissapears far too quickly, leaving only a faint hint of sweetness on the tongue. 2.0

D Only fair since the ABV is so high and the sweetness makes this present as a big beer even though the sweetness is short lived. 3.0

Notes: My suspicions were right, a reasonable beer but one that lacks character.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the 500ml bottle into a snifter. Body is a rich, deep brown color with chestnut highlights. A small finger's worth of khaiki-colored head flourishes just briefly, then recedes to a thin ring. Aroma of mostly sweet malt, with notes of dark cherry, a touch of brown sugar, and a big whiff of booze.
Palate is sweet malt up front, with a mild fruitiness as it washes across the tongue. Notes of white grape, demerera sugar, and just a litle touch of fresh leather. A very mild hop bitterness makes its presence briefly known on the roof of the mouth. Finish is clean and fairly sweet, with a good bit of warming booze.
The body is smooth and just a touch sticky, and a bit more still than I tend to like in a doppelbock. On the whole, this is certainly not a bad beer, but sweeter and less subtle than I expect from the style.

New, fresh bottles just arrived here. Contrary to many, I find this to be a good doppelbock.

My fresh bottle made for an amazing pour with a good 1-2 inch head of light tan froth that looked gorgeous, and retained rather well through the stein. Plenty of lace.

Nose has some fresh brownbread aromas and a faint resemblance to cookie dough.

Upon tasting there is a very pleasing malt sweetness that is far more sweet than most doppelbocks present to the palate. Espresso crema is there as well, perhaps an espresso with 2 shots of sugar in the raw. No harsh flavors whatsoever. Smooth body. Somewhat sexy & sweet. Figs and cherry-liqueur sweetness present.

Finish leaves a kiss of caramel on the palate.

This was poured from the bottle into a pilsner flute.

A - deep dark ruby amber color with a thick head that leaves a nice lacing

S - rich sweet malts accented by roasted grain

T - sweet malt at first, roasted grain and some dark fruit-like flavors present with a touch of alcohol and some hop spiciness; finishes fairly sweet but the alcohol does dry it out somewhat

M - medium body with moderate carbonation, alcohol lends some heat

D - This is a fairly decent doppelbock. It's definitely Czech in the fact it really emphasizes the malt, so much so to the point that it's almost cloying. One is enjoyable, two would be too many.

It's a double-digit malt bomb! Listed at 10.5% ABV on my bottle, on to the beer:

Extrememly dark brown in color. There's a lot more head on this than I expected, and it's retaining very well. Good webbed lacing as well. The aroma is intoxicating. Very sweet, but also with the inevitable kick of alcohol. Dark bread, white grapes, dry bread crust, solvent alcohol eventually pulls through. Let's continue on...

The alcohol is disguised as really sweet grapes. Could be worse...could be sharp metallic alcohol flavor. Lots of grapes, grapes, and more grapes. There's a very light bread crust taste. Medium feel, though a little bigger feel is expected for the strengh and style. No taste numbing booze on the palate.

Man on man, that is really strong. It's strong and sweet, as it is to style, but one I'd only like a little of at a time. Pretty good tasting, but not very drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Received in October shipment of my BOTM club.

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Mug.

Appearance: Extremely dark brown with a garnet hue. Very small head formed initially but then fled.

Smell: Very, very sweet smelling, with brown sugar, figs, plum, caramel and a big blast of alcohol.

Taste: Starts off with a sweet mix of plum, rum and caramel, and then turns even sweeter, with notes of fig, syrup and whatever you can imagine that is ridiculously sweet. No evidence of hops whatsoever.

Feel: Low carbonation, full syrupy body that is somewhat cloying.

Drinkability: Overall, it certainly is a shot of flavor, but needs some serious balance. Not very often that a lack of balance means a lack of hops.

Rich, deep dark ruby-brown in color. Moderatley fluffy off-white head, very little retention, but decent lacing. Smell is of burnt brown sugar, carmel, molasses and dark, sugary fruit (you get the point). Taste is almost a cloyingly sweet blend of burnt brown sugar, carmel, molasses with a background of ripened sweet fruit. Minimal alcohol burn n with no hop charachter noticed. Full bodied, chewey, sticky sweet and coating. Decent brew, slightly too sweet, thats definitely a sipper, recomended to drink on the cooler side of the serving suggestion.

3.45/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: the pour had some nice character as it was deeper in color than I expected. The body is made of hearty reds and burnt cinnamon brown hues, not transparent. The retaining pile of fluff is a nice addition with its slightly dense character and ecru color. A few streaks of heavy lacing exist, and as the drinking continues, an impressive array of speckled film hugs the glass (it really is that good...)

S: mostly full of malts and some toffee with cocoa. I also detect whiffs of light grainy breads. Augmenting the toffee is a nutty whiff or two

T: at first, my taste buds conjure sweet molasses with a sugary maple syrup, and crazily enough a cake batter sweetness. Maltiness is hidden back amongst the continual sweetness and takes a mildly toasted nut profile. The flavors present are rather concentrated and make for a rich, sometimes cloyingly, experience. A light grog and fruit (faint spiced cherries) mixture swirls on the palate to quell some of the sweetness. Considering the ABV this brew has things hidden pretty well
I have not drank enough Doppelbocks to really have a hold on the style. I like sweet beers and this hits that mark with ease. However, I think it is a little much for the style and could use a heavier dose of roasted flavors

M: I must say that the mouthfeel has some slick and glassy dimensions. The body is not overly carbonated and maintains a soft fizzle. The feel has a sticky-medium-plus girth that drinks easy. After a handful of sips and gulps my mouth is coated with an affectionate candied sweetness that is tiresome at the same time

D: this brew blew my pants clean off! I was buzzing with just half the beer gone. Well, anyway, I found myself with no quarrels about finishing it, drinks very easy. I am pretty sure that I am "one and done" with this brew. Nonetheless, I could see it making it in my mix-and-match sixer from time to time

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

picked this one, as I had a craving for a bock and hadn't tried it.

the appearance is a barely transparent reddish brown, with a fizzy tan head that sits like soap suds.

the aroma is untamed, crashing alcohol nose, big fruity aspects like grape, pear...very sweet smell.

the flavor is sickeningly sweet, a cascade of fruity qualities, but wild and twisted. the sweetness is only tempered by the warmth of the alcohol, which is poorly masked. this is flavored like a port wine with carbonation. finishes like strawberry syrup. and a bit of over-sugared malt.

the feel is very slightly carbonated, syrupy and sticky as bubblegum.

this is a tough swallow. the sweetness...I could theoretically handle. I have handled it with some bocks, most notably samichlaus. but this just sticks to the tongue, and is really overdone. too much fruit syrup flavor, not enough malt.

This is the fourth and least impressive Primator beer I've had so far. Althoug it's not bad, considering how good the other were, especially the excellent pilsner/lager and maibock, this is a real disappointment.

Almost black, with a big tan head steadily shrinking to a lasting, foamy top and leaving a little lace.

The aroma is rich fermented prune and caramelised fig, whole wheat bread, hint of wet earth, old tea, ginger cake and brown sugar. Overall, this is a nice, rich, characterful aroma, promising and only hinting at the overt sweetness that is to come.

The taste is at first rich, rummy ginger cake, molasses, caramleised dried figs and prunes, with spices. This mellows slightly but overall keeps the nice depth and range of character. However, it is very sweet, with the sweetness completely dominating the character and offset only slightly by a light spiciness and no bitterness. The sweetness is cloying and becoms rather tiresome. The feel is fairly good, full and slightly oily, but the sweetness really brings down the flavour and drinkability. I'll stick with their pilsner and maibock but go elsewhere for a doppelbock.

10.5% dopplebock from nachod, czech. 500ml for $3.50

dark brown pour with a ruby glow and soapy head. it's got a real malty-belgiany whiff with hints of brown sugar, licorice, and raisin. first sip is really god damn sweet and the body is quite thin. i like the taste i'm left with, though, as it's quite rich and smoky. warmth definitely helps, bringing a figgy plum thing to the party. this beer sweats traditional bock character, it just fails to deliver on balance of body and sweetness. overlooking a major failure is difficult but doable thanks to the taste here. at the very least, this will have me seeking out more varieties from the primator folks.

Recommended by a local merchant, I gave this a whirl and routinely revisit Primator. It has a deep, almost black color that matches its strong licorice flavor well. Coupled with caramel and coffee flavors, the licorice flavor comes with a syrupy taste that makes this, for me, a beer better enjoyed in a large shot glass than a beer glass. It's enjoyable, but not a beer I'd either consume more than one of, or a beer easy to get all the way through. That's not because of its taste but rather its texture, for me. It reminded me of Sambuca. Yet it is a good beer to share, nice to distribute samples, but not one to crack open and down a few by any stretch. It does go well with chocolate.

Near black colour, thick light tan head; roast, cream, black toffee, raisins aroma; very sweet/bitterish taste with black toffee, caramel, chocolate, dates and coffee aromas; bitter finish with liquorice, treacle, black toffee, raisins and coffee aromas.

A wonderfully rich and malty beer, which is big and bold in a quite un-lagery way. The label proclaims it as "tmavý porter" or dark porter. I'm not sure that's what it is, but who gives a fig - it's still a great beer. Big and chewy, packed with dark malt and fruit flavours. Well worth seeking out.

Dark appearance, with some ruby red reflexes. Brownish decent head.
At the smell a lot of burned and roasted caramel. Roasted and burned notes. Maybe ripe red fruti, and ligtht cocoa notes.
The taste is quite different, and peculiar. There is obviously again malt and caramel, but no more burned; it is more sweet, something like vanilled sugar, and some candy. Too sweet. No alcohol noticeable, but it is too sweet.
Not satisfactory.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Russet with brilliant, gem-like ruby highlights. Like most beer of this general color, it becomes dark crimson with backlighting. The head was large to start and is hanging in there admirably. It's pearlescent ecru with multiple, delicate bubbles on its undulating surface. A thick, slurred collar looks to be the extent of things lace-wise.

I caught a whiff of what smelled like bourbon during the pour. With more focused attention, it smells more like Scotch whisky due to a slight phenolic character. Plenty of roasted malt and carob keep things solidly in doppelbock territory. Double Bock is one of the more alcoholic (not ethanolic) smelling beers of this style that I can remember, but the passing resemblance to Scotland's finest makes everything okay.

Although this is powerful stuff, it isn't overly delicious. As suspected, alcohol plays a big role in terms of flavor, tongue sizzle and esophageal warmth. It has nowhere near the complexity or refinement of fine Scotch whisky, so let's jettison that analogy once and for all. In fact, I'm not sure what the elevated, barely disguised alcohol contributes in a positive sense. A quick buzz? Okay, there is that.

The beer tastes okay, maybe even a bit better than okay, but it can't hold a candle to the best versions. Concentrated dark caramel, chocolate liqueur and espresso mixed with a splash of Absolut are the major components of the flavor profile. It's broad but it isn't deep, for which I'll blame the body. The mouthfeel was shockingly light on first blush and doesn't appear to be firming up with warming. This beer needs a little chewiness in a bad way.

The alcohol is going straight to my head and I'm drinking this sucka on a full stomach. Despite the loud rush of CO2 on crown cracking and the generous head (now gone), the beer feels more than a little undercarbonated. It's an odd mouthfeel that isn't overly appealing.

Primator Double Bock is a damn sight better than Primator Blonde Bock. It's a different take on the style and isn't one that I'm feeling all that warm and fuzzy about (well, I am feeling warm and fuzzy, but not because of the flavor, mouthfeel, etc). This is respectable beer that falls far short of inspired.

Obtained from the brilliant beer shop, the Pivni Galerie, in Prague during my trip to the Czech Republic some five months ago.
BB 02/05/06. Served chilled in a tall slim goblet.

A: beautiful dark ruby hue, great clarity, coming with a creamy, beige-coloured beer head with relatively good retention; very tiny and gentle carbonation detected. Looking more than elegant~~
S: rich aroma of licorice, sweetish black plums, raisins, longan-fruit honey, deeply caramelised sugar, a touch of leather... overall very fruity on top of deep, thick toasted maltiness, very nice and not overly thick
T&M: rich brown-sugary and toasted maltiness comes in so smoothly with a soft flow of toffeeish and licorice flavour... gradually taken over by round, preserved dark-fruits, cream, and a slowly-burning alc. warmth creeping deep down the palate. The mouthfeel is surprisingly light and lively upfront, even with an interesting, astringent "bite" on top of creamy fizziness, showing not a single sign that it's a 10%abv. beer rather than a seven-ish strong dark lager, only the undercurrent in the very end reveals some "seriousness" of this beer. Finished rather clean, not sugary-thick at all, even with a nice touch of bitter-sweetness at the tail~~
D: in some ways it's rather like a Baltic Porter, and a ve...ry easy-drinking beer for its hard-headed strength. I actually haven't expected it to be so nice to be honest, as I picked it up at the store (mainly) because it was the strongest beer I saw, and it pleasantly surprises me a big time!! A nice doppel bock to savour~~

Interesting find. I didn't realize that this was Czech until I got it home. I assumed it was German due to the typical -ator suffix. 500ml bottle, 10% ABV.

Pours out to a slightly hazy deep mahogany...much darker than expected for the style. Forms a modest light cocoa head with poor retention and minimal lacing. Carbonation is mild to moderate. The aroma is very rich..TONS of sticky amber malts with prune juice, raisins, moist pipe tobacco, figs, dates and a subtle chocolate note. The nose is exceptionally rich, much more so than any other dopplebock I've had, coming close to a Baltic Porter. The mouthfeel is silky smooth, syrupy and cloying. Dense bodied. The taste is exceptional...it's really a clone of the aromas with a few distinct differences...the initial pang is subtly sour for a microsecond before being replaced by a very sweet malt body. The sweetness is more than expected, making it hard to finish the whole bottle by oneself. I suspect there may be some saccharin involved, but there is no saccharin aftertaste. The aftertaste is permeated by very rich tobacco and leather hanging in the finish. Cleanly fermented, and for being 10%, I'm not tasting or smelling the alcohol. Bitterness is minimal.

This is an exceptionally rich brew. I would reserve it for dessert, as it's just to rich to have as a normal dopplebock. Best shared with somebody else, as I'm going to be unable to finish this myself. A very interesting and unique find.

500 ml bottle, on sale at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins, CO for $1.99! Shoulda bought all that they had, but I had never had this before.

This is an extreme beer in many ways, except that it's a bit one-dimensional when cold. Let it warm a bit after you pull it out of the fridge.

A: Reverse cascading ginormous dark-tan head that lasts and gets down-right thick, over a dark, virtually opaque amber body. Head stays creamy and sticky: as it reduces in size, it "tightens" up and grabs the sides of the glass. Gorgeous sight to behold. Truly a beautiful beer.

S: Malt, roast malt, dark roast malt, toasted burnt malt, and then some more over-burnt malt. Almost harshly malt. Not much else. This is a malt-bomb.

T: Same as the smell, but sticky and wonderfully malty-cherry-chocolate sweet. Think "a dark-chocolate milk-shake" burned to a crisp. A little bit of burnt sugar taste, like the syrup that drips out of your mom's cherry pie onto the pan underneath it, then burns on. So much roasted malt it even masks the massive alcohol -- I never would have known this was 10%. Mmmmm. As it warms, it expands, and some spice and pepper come up.

M: Smooth, thick, creamy -- more like a stout than a doppelbock -- even a bit sticky.

D: How do you rate a 10% beer on drinkability? It's perfect for what it is, but compared to other D-B's, it is far less drinkable, simply because it will put you on your butt if you have three.

Overall: Since I'm a malt lover (indeed, a malt-bomb-monger), it figures I would rate this above the overall rating. Truly an immense and worthwhile beer if you're a malt-maniac. I DEFINITELY should have bought every one of these Wilbur's had -- they usually sell for $4.49 a bottle. Huge beer for $2 a 500ml.

This brew is a dark brown in color with not much of a head or carbonation. Lots of lacing though. Scents of caramel, toffe, malt. There's a very sweet taste with a full body. I could taste the alcohol present. Goes down real easy, so this tells me to watch out, take it slow. Like mentioned before, this brew will kick your ass if you do not respect it.

500 ml brown bottle with no freshness date.

A- Thin tan lace barely sticks around, deep mahogany hue still shows some clarity.

S- Very sweet with a mild burnt sugar nose, brown bread and prunes come to mind.

T- Mildly cloying sweet, lots of malt on the palate. Cola like flavor is followed by dark bread and ripe fruit and more sugary sweet flavors. Hops? Not sure where they are as they seem to be masked by the sweetness.

M- Smooth with a thick creamy body from the large amout of residual sugar that is left.

D- Share this bottle with someone ... good after dinner drink to pair with chocolate. I may even try to cook with it as I could not drink the whole bottle.

Dark brown color, with crimson edges, small, soon evaporating head.

Sweet nose, with complexities unfolding as it opens...toffee and caramel, maple, nuts, and anise...molasses...and a whiff of alcoholic heat...nice...

Smooth entrance in the mouth, soft and untroubling. Thick malt, solid flavor, full bodied. Slick, sweet, delicious...the alcohol isn't detected in the taste, not yet atleast...getting thicker and richer on the palate, feeling a bit of port wine mixed with dark rum.

Recommended. A nice little doppelbock, probably my first from the Czech Republic, and a sweet surprise.
