Notes: This unfiltered bottom fermented double bock beer has been brewed for over 375 years--always adhering to the original recipe. The taste is unmistakable, with its smooth chocolate flavor, robust dark caramel maltiness and a light note of hops--providing a nice intensity on the palate.

Not bad, but not great. Not enough head and it doesn’t last long. No lacing. Clear, darkish amber liquid. I wish it was darker. Caramel malt on nose and taste. Was hoping for more overt expression of dark dried fruit .the only chocolate I pick up is maybe faint milk chocolate; most likely from power of suggestion after reading the brewer notes.Mouthfeel a bit thinner than preferred.

Reddish orange appearance with minimal white head.
Close to medium carbonation with a medium body yet it has a bit of a slick,thick feel
Aroma is definitely malty,slightly boozy,dark fruit with some toast and caramel. Very deep,strong and pleasant overall
Taste doesn't stray too far from the aroma,slight bit of alcohol. It just really delivers on flavor in a really nice intense way.
Overall,its just beer that any beer lover should try

Pours a beautiful dark amber brown with a slightly lack luster of white head that disappeared quickly for me. Smells sweet and malty. The initial flavor is dark molasses and toast with a lingering finish. I prefer higher carbonation, but I understand that any higher in this brew would cause a lot of the nuance to get lost. Boozy and heavy, but slightly warming- I would save this for those cold winter nights.

330ml bottle in Mae Kasa, Thailand. Pours a dark amber. Off white head. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel. Taste is lovely; dark fruit, caramel, malt, bread. High alcohol profile, so warming. Interesting.

L: A little hazy, dark amber, 1 inch head with medium retention, off-white foam has an orange hue and leaves a bit of lace.
S: White bread, honey, hints of noble hops, plum, apple juice.
T: Malt forward, low sweetness, clean lager, sour dough, dark fruit, sharp on the back, woody finish.
F: Medium weight body, medium carbonation, soft with a light creaminess.
O: Good, less sweet than I expected.

Beautiful, thick, dark robust flavor. It has a sweetness that may be offputting to some drinkers. Makes an excellent dessert beer. The smell of the beer is pleasant. The beer is smooth feeling in your mouth. After pouring and seeing the beer, for some reason that I can not explain, I was surprised by the flavor once I sipped it. I don't know what I was thinking I was going to taste, but I was extre.y satisfied by the surprise none the less.
