3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear mahogany body with a beige head.
Sweet caramel malt aroma with metallic notes.
Balanced moderate sweetness and bitterness. Rich, malty flavours. Bitter finish with a bit of alcohol.
Full body with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation.
The smoothness and full malt character make this a very good doppelbock. The aroma is somewhat lacking, though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich, delectable and complex. The sweet malty nose and deep carmel color make this beer enjoyable even before the first sip. Well-balanced, and although there is a strong alcohol component, this brew is somehow delicate

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. Like a good Doppelbock should me. Malty and sweet, a bit boozy and greasy, with that indistinguishable aroma that makes Doppelbock great. Heavy and full-bodied. Delicious.
