I had this beer at the cafe in the central are of old Burghausen with the Andechs umbrellas and sign.
Appearance: Served in a tall, narrow stange glass. Dark brown with a ruby hue. Off white head with very thick lacing on the sides of the glass. Wow.
Smell: Caramel, malty sweetness and ripe berries.
Taste: Sweet caramel flavor with a clean maltiness and a light roastiness. Vinous, earthy, bark, brown sugar, and plums. This beer is thick and full with flavor.
Mouthfeel: Syrupy sweet but smooth and clean.
Drinkability: Very good and drinkable. It makes a great dessert beer. It's strong but not overpowering or offensive. Rich in flavor and complex. I liked this beer in the bottle but I LOVE it on tap.
This was the last beer of the evening on my second night in Germany. I was still jet lagged but that night I had the best night of sleep of any night in Europe. This beer isn't high in alcohol but with the sugars and alcohol together, this was lights out for me. I look forward to drinking this beer again when I am in Germany.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a deep brown color with a one finger off white head. Recedes down to a thin cap fairly quickly.
S: A big overlying rye bread note, caramel, toasted bread crust, grain, light powdered cocoa, earthy malt and some light dark fruit notes.
T: A rich wave of rye and nuttiness right away. Middle is primarily dark fruit, with a bit of banana and raisin skin. Light cocoa, molasses and rye crust on the finish. Very well balanced. A really solid doppel.

Poured from a 500ml bottle, code L3293 might mean it was bottled Oct. 20, 2014.
A brown, reddish body with a solid 2-3 finger head; retention is average a bit. Aroma is brown suggar, bread, banana and molasses. Strong malt flavor, liquid bread, banana chips, very bready and chewy. A nice doppelbock to have.
