On draft from local German Restaurant. Dark brown with head that disappeared quickly but was aromatic and pleasing while it lasted. A dark fruity smell that matched its smooth rich taste. Sweet, fruity, chocolate taste with a touch of bitter. Not a frequent repeat at $8 a tall glass but definitely memorable.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a nice dark brown with good head (and retention). Nose is figs, plums, bread, nuts, and caramel. Taste is divine. Beautiful mixture of figs and plums, with a hint of sweet and bitter. Lingering notes of toffee and chocolate. This is so great. Mouthfeel is medium, but really coats the mouth and sticks around.

From the bottle, it pours a dark ruby brown with a modest head, soon reducing to thin ring. Malt and raisins in the nose...and mouth. Enjoyable, but my bottle may be a little old as it is not stellar.

L: nice dark brown with a finger head that fades too quickly and light lacing
S:strong malt sweetness over whelming molasses
T: follows the noise and fruit cake like raisin with roasted malt and coffee undertones
F:Nice carbonation not overly sweet or chewy but all in a good way

O: a nice beer well done to the style and glad I have a four pack and did. Not grab the single

Deep dark brown with a thin head and no lacing. Faint sweet malty smell. Taste is malts with a bit of chocolate and dark fruit. Overall this is a good beer, meal in a glass is an accurate description.

Poured a deep dark chestnut with ruby highlights into a fifteen ounce mug the same temperature of the beer. Two and one half fingers of amber/brown head that lasts to the bottom. Sticky clinging lacing everywhere.

The nose finds a wonderful blend of sweet malts and dark fruits. Add to those some English walnut and raisins. Bready and rich. Some spicy notes.

Tastes of Heaven. Dark whole grain nutty bread combines with huge sweet malts and dark fruit. Maybe plum? Sweet. Touch of hoppy bitterness but still finishes sweet on the palate. Heavy body. Thick and chewy. Mild carbonation.

A wonderful example of the Double Bock style. The best I've had by far. World class indeed! Cheers!
