Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, dark fruit, raisin, and fruit juice aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit, raisin, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, molasses, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with fantastic sugary and dark fruit characteristics all around.

Serving type: bottle.

L: Pours hazy medium brown with a 1” cream colored foam cap that provides light lace.
S: Clean malty nose with faint biscuit.
T: Clean and malty palate with a touch of dark sugar sweetness, light anise to cardamom and faint dark fruit. With a bright hop finish.
F: Creamy medium full body and medium low carbonation.
O: A true classic that too often sits too long in the importer’s warehouse and grows stale.

Very sweet. Cloying and syrupy. Strange astringent aftertaste. Very unpleasant. Like drinking sweetened cough syrup. Not a beer I'd recommend to anybody

Hard to review this beer. It smells fantastic; all the rich malty notes from quality dark european beers like toffee, raisin, molasses, etc. The taste follows the aroma but it's just too sweet for me to drink the whole bottle. Mouthfeel is full, a little syrupy. Sweetness lingers after the swallow. So although I couldnt finish the bottle because the sweetness was a bit cloying, I can tell its well made, and is what it is, really. I can others enjoying it if you have a sweet tooth. I imagine it would go well with game meat.

The classic and traditional altbier makers of Germany show a strong and stern hand as they flirt with dopplebock and barleywine strengths, complexities and intensities.

Their Doppelsticke tumbles into the glass with a brazen garnet color and a creamy thin head with tremendous staying power and lace. As the nose plunges in, it's filled with masculine sweetness of molasses, brown sugar and sugar cane. Decorated with mild vinous spice, hints of rum and fruitcake come about.

Semi-sweet and leathery, the beer's earthy sweetness is redolent of prune, plum, red grape and fig. As the decadently sweet taste folds in on itself, it pulls in flavors of port and sherry wines with savory toasted taste. Surprisingly arid on the middle, hints of chocolate, coffee and tobacco and herbal tea plays delicately heading into finish.

The beer's full body makes it a slow sipping affair, But the thinning effects of aged acidity and alcohol keeps the taste palatable and manageable to avoid cloying. Its long and savory finish is chocked full of umami and spiced rum.

Had this at Christmas and it massively exceeded my expectations. Wonderfully balanced, quirky beer with a complex mix of flavours - caramel, raisins, prunes, lots of malt - not overly sweet. Shares some characteristics with Doppelbocks, but the alcohol is much better disguised. Really hope to track this down again.

brown, copper.
Smells boozy, like an old ladys perfume and some raisins
Taste like fugde (very sweet butter) with some ogange zest and a quite nice bitter finish.
