A nice strong malty beer. As a "double altbier" it is deeper in flavor and heavier in feel, but a good dose of hops keeps the rich caramel malts in balance.

Glad I could find this fresh while traveling in Germany!

Very solid alt. Beautiful cloudy brownish color. Pretty decent head, though it dissipates quickly. Yet lots of lacing remains. Good aromas of fig, grape, sweetness. Hint if saltiness. Spicy, dry, bitter taste. Heat from alcohol in aftertaste. Medium but sticky feel. A nice sipper after dinner. Nice.

Look- murky brown with a lot of small floaties. thin ring of head, no lacing

Nose- very faint, getting some caramel and little herbal hops

Taste- Rich burnt caramel, tobacco, leather, herbal hop bitterness and subtle smokiness. The beer finishes with a lingering bitterness and mild tart taste

Feel- Full-bodied and creamy, coats the mouth

Overall- the taste on this one is so full and rich and savory. Wish there was a bit more on the nose.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a semi-clear with fine particulates, medium brown producing a thin finger of frothy, tan, somewhat lasting head that recedes to island caps, leaving thin motes & webs of lace. Aroma is roast, toast, pumpernickel, dark fruits, brown sugar, molasses, cocoa, leather, tobacco & a hint of floral hops. Taste is roast, rich brown bread, chocolate, candied figs, raisins & prunes, burnt brown sugar/molasses/toffee with a floral hop, spice, roasted/burnt malt bittering finish that intensifies in the aftertaste where it develops an astringency atop the bitterness. Whiskey hints & alcohol bitterness is also present. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, lightly carbonated, silky smooth through the first 2/3rds of the sip, developing some sharp edges in the last 1/3rd. Absolutely incredible!

Pours a dark, murky brown coloration with a medium, fizzy head that dissipates quickly, leaving a thin blanket on the beer. Smells of rich, bready, caramel malts, toffee and dark, dried fruit (plum, fig), with just a hint of chocolate and booziness coming through. Taste is quite complex. The malts and sweetness hit you first, revealing notes of toffee, dark bread and molasses, followed by a noticeable booziness. Then the dried fruit comes through, with quite a rich fig/plum aroma. At this point, the bitterness sets in, which starts off quite strong, then becomes more bittersweet in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is quite rich and thick. This is one of those beers that you can really admire for their rich, complex flavor profile, but would never have more than one of in a single evening. I'm really not sure if that's a good thing.

It pours murky brown with virtually no head whatsoever. The aroma is super malty and fairly boozy, while the taste is insanely sweet in a cloying way. Very chewable. Not a big fan I have to admit.

The beer is a dark brown color with a lot of floaters in it. The head was very short lived. Smells of caramel, dark fruits, and teriyaki. The beer tastes sweet at first and then is followed by a bitterness and spice. It really tastes like Chinese food. The beer a little chewy I want to say. It feels more like a meal than a beer.

This doppelsticke altbier pours a cloudy chocolate color with a very faint red tint and a medium frothy white head. The smell is of dark brown bread, with some sweetness (brown sugar and caramel), and some alcohol. It is a very malt forward smell, reminiscent of a doppelbock, but with some differences. The flavor is quite intense and unique for beers that I have tried. There is a strong dark brown bread element, a little brown sugar sweetness, some dark fruit, some spiciness, like a rye maybe, and significant alcohol flavor. The alcohol flavor is a little stronger than I would expect at 8.5%. This is a very robust flavor. The body is quite heavy and the finish is fairly creamy. This is a tough beer to review because I’ve never tried another doppelsticke altbier, which is apparently a much more robust form of altbier. If this beer is representative they are really not at all like normal altbiers and are much closer to doppelbocks actually. This is a real punch you in the face beer, which I respect. A lot of the best doppelbocks that I’ve had have a more polished flavor and many have more alcohol also, so I can’t say that this is better than those, but it is definitely an interesting beer that is worth trying though I couldn’t drink more than one of these in a night.

pursuing a New Year's resolution to try more beer styles, I picked up a bottle of this when shopping. Nifty bottle. There's a clearly indicated location for a date code on the seal which had nothing printed on it. The brewery's website mentions that some aficionados age this for a year, and i would really like to know when this was bottled since it had issues. Perhaps cellaring would have improved things. The Uerige website notes that this is specifically produced for the American market and that it's brew with a lot more of everything in it, so not so typical for the style. Poured this without letting the sediment pass into the glass.

Smell - breakfast rolls, chocolate, plums.
Appearance - cola brown with absolutely zero head, some traces of lacing as I got to the bottom of the glass.
Taste - great. Everything in the smell is present along with further complexity and spiciness. Allspice, brunt toast and ground ginger. Alcohol completely hidden.
Mouthfeel - just enough carbonation to say it existed. Very substantial, almost syrupy.

Overall I'm glad i bought this even though I think this bottle had issues. It reminds me very much of Samiclaus - sort of a light version of it. I will definitely try it again.
