Chocolate garnet – one of the darker German beers I’ve seen – and loose lumpy beige head that goes pretty fast. Stinging sourdough rye nose with ash, prune and dark cocoa, opening to autumn leaf.
Treacle cakes, some marzipan, lots of plum jam, and a bit of raisin with clovey end and a hot buttered rum thing, too.
Caraway and black cherry finish and humming minty linger. Medium to full, chewy, oily.

Either very sweet and full or under attenuated – almost the total opposite of Maximator. Big, with lots of fruit pastry notes, almost like a winter ale. The hops are missed, but it works as a malt bomb, hiding the ABV well. Still, a bit sickly sweet for me, though it dries out and heats up as it warms and opens.

I decided to mix this up and pour it into a small snifter. This pours deep cloudy red giving off ruby hues around the rim, nearly flat though. At best there’s a touch of dark head on the top but as soon as it shows it is gone.

The classic sweeter side of a stout without the nice robust coffee. Sweet fruits, plumbs, raisins mixed in some molasses.

I have a hard time describing this one. It tastes like hops well WELL faded mixed into a highly mature malt. The malt has the dark fruits that don’t crescendo with the sweetness I expected. The finish has hops but they don’t bite or bitter, but they seem to finish the malt sweetness.

Surprisingly carbonated and rather light in the mouth feel. Almost watery to a degree.

This beer is really off what I think of in a doppelbock. It isn’t as rich or sweet and it takes on a lot of odd flavors I’m not used to as well. It isn’t bad, but it is far from good. Very far….
