From Labirratorium. In Bavaria glass. Playing Blackwell Epiphany. More roasted and dark than usual in the style, with coffee and smoke notes as well as some caramel. Very addictive

Aquesta cervesa m´ha agradat. Bona cervesa tipicament alamanya , una autèntica cervesa bavaresa d´hivern.Equilibrada , potser amb massa gas. El punt just d alcohol. Molt bé, repetiré

Cola brown body with a large beige head. Smells of metal.
Wow, very much like a cakey stout. It is a touch bitter, but nothing distracting. No walnut like I was expecting. Plenty of rhubarb and custard in the finish. Weirdly reminds me of St Peter's Cream Stout. Almost liqueur-like black chocolate flavour. Classy mouthfeel. If you're in the mood for a restorative winter brew this won't disappoint.

Really dark brown color with light brown head. Aroma has dark, roasted malt and a bit of milk chocolate. Taste is really roasty with hints of coffee and chocolate. Body is light and well carbonated. Quite nice overall, easy to drink and more roasty than a regular bock.

Side by side tasting shows that this is most certainly the same beer as the more famous Celebrator.

And therefore worthy of the same score.

Served in room temperature.

Appearance: Almost black. Pours an airy two finger head.

Aroma: Caramel malt, some toasty nuts & spices, little bit of yeasty chocolate.

Taste: Malt and dried fruit, hint of coffee.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, moderate carbonation.

Overall: It's a very malty brew, a bit richer than your typical bock. I've had it a number of times and I feel that it tends to be a bit better from the tap. It's a solid beer though, and nice for the winter months.

500ml bottle (Best Before dated: 11/13) poured into a large Pokal.

Pours dark brown; a nice clear dark ruby colour shows through in the light. Small beige head and thick lacing, but it dissipated fairly quickly to a ring. Aromas of malty lightly burnt bread, with a little sweetness and spice. Similar things in the taste; roasted malt and subtle sweetness, some dark fruit. A little bitterness comes through in the dry finish and the aftertaste lasts very well. Medium, slightly tingly carbonation, and a medium/full-body.

Nice drinkable beer. I've had two doppelbocks, Weltenburg & Andechs, and didn't make much of the latter in particular (not fresh perhaps, found them plain and one-dimensional), I'd much rather have this as it's closer to lighter lager styles. An "Eineinhalb-bock" if you will :)
