Aged 8 years and this beer is fantastic with notes of caramel, malted bread, Belgian sugar and Belgian yeast. Takes on a wee heavy scotch ale character as well as barley wine. Based on reviews I feared this beer would be a disgustingly brewed alcohol mess but was actually true to the triple bock style and quite enjoyable.

500 ml bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and slightly crisp. Taste is of sweet malt, alcohol ripe fruit and peppery hops. Alcohol is noticeable. Finish is long alcoholic. Somewhat sweet for me and too alcoholic.

Pours a clear, golden color with a snowy white head. Aggressive pour yielded only a couple of fingers of head that dissipated quickly, leaving no lacing. This does not have the complexity I have come to expect from a doppelbock. It is overly sweet without much malt character, rather heavy with little carbonation, and quite alcoholic. The finish is a little more crisp than expected, with no lingering cloying sweetness on the palate. There was a tag on the sample I purchased that touted the high (12 %) ABV. That and the price (about $2 for a 0.5-liter bottle) are about the only things this beer has going for it.

Pours a bronze color with little head forming. Nice clarity on it. Aroma had some malt, fusel and corn flavor. The taste is malty sweet then strange bitterness and alcohol comes through. As it warms the chemical nail polish aspect of the alcohol heat in this becomes pronounced. Its a malt liquor of sorts that suits a specific purpose, to get you drunk cheaply. It has some bock elements but the adjunct material is hard to hide. Its ok.

The high alcohol definitely comes through, and if that's what you want, then this is for you. However, other than that, this is a sugary, syrupy, barely drinkable liquid that I can't really compare with other beers. I found it unpalatable and unfinishable.

Enjoyed from the big bottle in a snifter. This blonde dopple pours a bright clear orange color with a quickly dissipating head of big white bubbles that leaves nothing...no ring...no lacing. Nose of apples, light citrus orange, caramel malts, and a lot of purge grain alcohol booze. Flavors are caramel coated apple meets a light citrus orange or mandarin, followed by a large grain note on the back with searing alcoholic warmth. An interesting take on a blonde dopplebock. Strong warmth from the booze, sweet aftertaste, and smooth slick mouth feel. Not bad at all.

Cheers

Nothing special. Pours a dark orange with little to no head. Lots of debris floating around. Smell does not exist. Taste is of sweet malt and floral fruit. The sweetness, which is almost overpowering, hides the 12% ABV. Has the classic Balkan flavor hue that is present in all the Eastern European beers. Not my fav.
