ClarkVV (4414) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Bottle from Sunset Grill drunk Summer 2008. I guess it really dosent matter if this is listed as a Doppelbock (as it was previously) or if the brewery intended it to be a doppelbock, because it isn’t and is certainly a poor example of the style. Frankly, it dosent matter what it’s listed as, the beer is so heavily flawed. Weak, watery pour with very little head showing, clear and filtered and a maroon-beige colored body. Nearly infected smelling, with off-putting bacterial and/or strange mineral notes. Some alcohol in the nose and a light dose of caramel. The flavor is very washed out, with a watery mouthfeel and too much alcohol on the finish. Nearly tart in flavor with raisins, plums and red fruit-like notes from the yeast, I assume? Caramel-raisin maltiness is undone by the alcohol cutting through it, while more tartness shows up on the finish. A sort of spoiled fruit tartness, that is....Not my cup of tea, whatever the case, and a seemingly poorly brewed example of whatever it’s trying to be.

Wanderings878 (67) - ITALY - JUN 19, 2015
Bottiglia. Ambrato carico con schiuma bianco/beige non molto persistente. Aroma di malto, caramello, note di miele e vaniglia. Gusto inizialmente dolce e maltato, per poi rivelare un retrogusto amarognolo apprezzabile, dove emerge anche la componente alcolica, ma non in maniera esagerata. Carbonatazione medio/bassa, corpo medio-pieno. Si beve con facilità in relazione al grado alcolico.

Kita (1535) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear deep amber orange color with thin creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, yeast, candy sugar, bread and alcohol. Taste starts by moderate sweet caramel with mild honey note, follows by dried fruits and yeasty acidity with warming alcoholic mouthfeel and very mild bitter finish. Medium body, sticky texture and soft carbonation in palate. Another nice brew from the Amarcord movie stars collection...

This is the best Italian Beer I have tasted to date- Small craft- Great flavor at 55°- Still palatable when cold but the aromas and flavors shine between 50-55°.

Bottle. Dark amber, white head that fades fast. Aroma to caramel, bread nuts. Taste candy, brown sugar and odd very short bitterness. Medium-full body.

Silvan7 (902) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle @ home. Ambrata, limpida, schiuma beige fine mediamente persistente. Aroma poco intenso, maltato, leggermente mielato, floreale (margherita) una lieve nota agrumata. Gusto Abboccato, acidulo, fruttato agrumato più intenso rispetto che naso, si ritrovano maltato e miele, leggero caramello. Spigolosa, decisamente carbonata, di consistenza quasi appiccicosa, poco calda. Non molto equilibrata e piuttosto fuori stile.
