3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The bottle says it is a Starkbier (Strong beer) but it is aroma wise very much a typical Doppelbock. Good and malty aroma.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clean reddish color with a nice off-white head that keeps a nice lacing until he end. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit, hints of plum and slightly alcohol. Flavor follow the aroma but not alcohol notes, hints of burned sugar, caramel and hops. Low carbonation and medium to full body with a sweet roasted finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark ruby body with a thin off white head. Lightly carbonated. Sweet malt dark fruity aroma. Dark fruity taste with some light bitterness. Finishes wet but clean. Looks lightly carbonated but comes alive on your tongue. Feels potent at first but settles.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml undated bottle served in a pilsner glass.
Pours clear and with plenty of visible carbonation, but less than a 1 finger head despite a fairly vigorous pour. The tan head was reasonably durable.
S: Roasted grains; hints of roasted nuts, toffee and dark dried fruits.
T: Also malty with hints of raisins, dates, dried plums and roasted nuts. Lightly sweet overall but with some bitterness.
M: Medium+ body. Medium-light carbonation. Just a touch syrupy.
O: Very good.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber-color with big beige head that goes down quickly. Aroma is mostly wet cellar (bottom-fermented feeling) and a bit of caramel. Bready caramely taste, thick, sirupy (not as extreme as other Doppelbocks), malt sweetness, not too sweet though. Boozy, warming finish. Okay, not exactly my kind of Doppelbock. Too much pure malts and too little dark fruits or coffee...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours red if you look at it with light behind it no real head. Aroma is all Carmel and malt, sweet. Tastes of sweet malts and dark fruit. This is a real easy doppelbock to drink, nothing overpowering.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
ASPETTO: granata scuro, limpido. Schiuma fine, abbondante e persistente, di colore marroncino/rossiccio molto chiaro. AROMA:leggerissimo smaltato, quasi neanche si sente. GUSTO: smaltato e caramelloso. Poca carbonizzazione, ma con bollicine finissime. Corpo leggero. CONCLUSIONE: birretta tranquilla’ niente di che’. Punteggio di ratebeer per me assolutamente esagerato.
