L: pours a nice magohny brown color, small white head that disolves very rapid.

S: toasted malts,caramel,raisins,toffe and bread

T&F: Malty from the start to the finish, at the first i sense roasted malts, with strong presence of caramel and bread, gets more sugary in the middle and i get some flavours of dark dried fruits. in the finish feel the presence of different spices as well, i would say the finish are mild bittersweet , with the sweetness especially present in the aftertaste. warning feel after just a few sips, mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The thing i dislike with this beer is that is way to sweet for my preference.

O: A solid and good dopplebock, but a little to sweet for my taste.

Really dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has toasted malt and dark bread. Taste is malty, leans definitely towards the sweet side, dark bread, bread crust, burnt sugar and finishes with a slight earthy bitterness. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Overall it's quite good but a bit sweet for my taste.

On draft, 500mL serving at Haxenbauer's in Munich. Black in colour with no head to speak off, smell is of caramel and burnt malts. Taste is of treacle and aniseed. This is a magnificent beer, however one is enough. Goes well with typical Bavarian cuisine.

Pours an almost black color with red hints to it, while holding the beer against the light, together with a big, fluffy white head.

Smells of earth infused, spicy licorice, soothed by toffee and raisins.

Has a lower carbonation, resulting in a very soft mouthfeel, which turns out to be a tad fuller than your usual Bock.

Tastes of toffee, wood bark, dried earth and rock sugar from the beginning, with spices joining in. The beer's spiciness creates a peppery bite, mellowed by the overall smoothness, opening up the palate to raisins and glazed caramel. After the swallow the established sweetness finds its counterpart in an earth supported dryness, almost reminding of cold pressed coffee beans, due to the use of a prominent, utmost spicy earth quality and warming alcohol, creating an awesome balance till the end.

This convinces for creating a fantastic and ever evolving depth of flavors, highlighting typical Doppelbock qualities, together with a unique, spicy twist.

Pours very dark amber, tiny head, sticky lacing.
Pretty weak smell, some dark malts, faint caramel and a generic dark fruity sweetness.
Taste is also pretty straightforward. Toasted malts with faint caramel, dark bread crust, hint of nuts. Muddled dry dark fruit, mostly raisin, some berries, red apple and some citrus zest. Spicy feel, with some funky herbs to it, refreshing. Alcohol has a faint medicinal hint, stronger as the beer warms. Mildly bitter finish.
Medium carbonation and body, more watery than other doppelbocks. Aftertaste of fruity sweetness and alcohol (which gets a bit disturbing).
Not a great doppelbock, but a decent one at least. Plenty more better out there tho.

A - A beautiful dark chocolate color, quite consistent. Eggshell colored foam, two fingers, slightly less.

S - a slight hint of caramel with mostly a wheat smell, yet sweat in a very traditional doppelbock way. Not a strong odor.

T - Enjoyable with a slightly more verbose hint of hops in the mid section of the beer. The initial sip and finish are predominantly malty with a strong overtone of caramel.

M - Due to it being a dunkel, the beer is a little heavier than a lot of doppelbocks. Smooth; one can feel the sugars in the slight stickiness of the residue

O - this is a good beer; probably better than I'm giving credit. The highlight is the presence of a nice bitter hops taste accenting the strong caramel overtones. A middle-of-the-road doppelbock which is very traditional.
