Bottle bought in the Hague. Since i'm becoming a fan of this style i thought i would give this one a try. Well, i never thought i would drink a German beer that was so complex. It's definitely got that extra something that only the best beers in the world possess. Drink it!

The main beer I wanted on my one night stopover in München.
On tap at Andechser am Dom.
What is basically a pint glass is laid before me holding a beer with a thick tan head and a transparent dark bodied brown beer with orange and red highlights.
The nose brings forth aromas of dark fruit with a big bready presence.
The aroma translates well into the taste. The dark fruit and breadyness are there with some added grape.
The beer is a little sweet and sticky with a smooth medium body.
Goes well with the their interesting Spätzle dish.

500ml Bottle received in trade with Phyl21ca - thanks!
Appearance - Reddish brown colour with an average size fizzy beige head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fairly good lacing. The head lasted for 2-3 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Malts, dark fruits, butterscotch, an earthiness
Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and some butterscotch. There is also some raisin and herbal notes and a bit of a earthy/smokey/roasted flavour. It ends with a malty dark fruit aftertaste with a touch of bitterness.
Overall - I've been wanting to try this one for a while due to the high reviews. It's a good beer.. but nothing mind blowing. My bottle is best before September 2012, but still.. it can't have changed all that much.

Served on-draught into a .5 litre Andechs glass in Germany. Reviewed from notes taken June 2010.
A: Pours a 2.5 finger head of lovely cream and thickness. Great retention. Colour is a dark ruby. Nontransparent.
Sm: Dark fruit, caramel, chocolate, and pleasant dark esters.
T: Dark fruit, caramel, layered beautiful yet minimal hops. Brilliant shining esters (but not berry) on the climax. The full-bodied barley body is subtle and well malted. Very well balanced and built. No alcohol comes through. Perhaps a touch too sweet, but I quite like it.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Complements the flavours nciely. Maybe a bit syrupy, but it's forgivable; this style demands thickness and presence.
Dr: Very easy to drink, even refreshing. A fantastic Doppelbock - definitely one of the best I've ever had. Give her a spin; you won't be disappointed. I'd have to have a side by side, but I think I prefer this to Celebrator.

500ml courtesy of Don. Thanks! Tulip.
A: Plum and brown color with a quarter inch lasting head. Decent legs.
N: Clove, brown sugar, malt, soy sauce, prune. Has a deep appreciable sweetness that never ventures to cloying.
T: Complex. Brown sugar, some earthy hop bitterness. A hint of smokiness and some soy sauce, but not as a flaw. Incredibly balanced. Clove again. Cola. Breadiness like a dark rye loaf.
M: Rich and full. Very clean.
O: A rewarding beer. A veritable loaf of bread in a glass. Extremely glad t have tried this, and a beer I will revisit whenever I get the chance.
