3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Dark brown, burnt caramel edges, moderate light beige head, foamy, fairly nice lacing.   Rich bready nose, heavy, with notes of dried dark fruit.   Sweet malt on the tongue, bready, very smooth and clean.   Not much soy in this, which I like.   Soft dried dark fruit, perhaps a touch of brown sugar and/or molasses.   Big body, fairly moderate mouthfeel.   Clean finish, lingering malty sweetness.   Great stuff.   Thanks for the freebie Jeff!

Good looking Doppelbock, dark brown that raises a thick head of toffee that coats the glass with lace as it slowly eases back.
Rich aroma of dark caramel and raisins.
Could be a bit heavier bodied, but overall this is a decent Doppel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours brown, with a tan head. Aromas are sweet malt, some dark fruit,and sugar. Flavor is very sweet malt, brown sugar, dark fruit, and maybe even some chocolate. Not bad, but with the sweetness, it’s would never be an everyday brew.

(Bottle 50 cl) Dark, clear amber colour with a beige head. Lots of caramel in the nose. Surprisingly light body considering the alcohol. Distinct notes of roasted malt and caramel. Very easygoing Doppelbock. 120805
