3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark brown large creamy tan head. Dark dried fruit, electrical fire, caramel, brown sugar. Full body, oily texture, medium carbonation. Soft and filling mouthfeel with light alcohol presence. Light cocoa dry finish with long lasting malty notes. Very full and the dry finish gives it a twist. Complex and punchy. Will try again.

330 ml bottle from Jungle Jim’s this time. I’ve had this numerous times and hadn’t rated. Nice bottle and the little goat is a nice touch. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, nuts, smoked wood, mild fruit character, caramel, toast, with a hint of spice. Rich malty flavors. The nose is weaker than the flavor. This is certainly one of the best doppelbocks I’ve had.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A wonderful beer. Pours very dark and clear with a light head that lingers. Aroma is very malty with a hint of plums or raisins. Very clean with a nice malt hops balance, with a very slight sweetness and malty finish. Medium bodied. Tastes very clean, very little alcohol noted in the background.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- Chocolate, dark fruits, coffee, toast.
A- Dark color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Subtle chocolate, dark fruits, slightly sweet, slightly malty.
P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, smooth finish.
O- Didn’t seem to live up to expectations. The sweetness balanced out the richeness well but it just seemed to lack a little something. Still a great beer however.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Cola-black, thin head, opaque. 4/5
Aroma: Not much aroma to speak of. Oats, malt, hay, caramel. 5/10
Taste: Sour at first bite with a pleasantly milk-chocolate sweetness, hops lending notes of citrus to an otherwise very sweet, malty, pleasantly-sour body. 8/10
Palate: Good body, astringent and sour, modestly carbonated. Long milky mouthfeel with a long, sour finish at the back. 4/5
Overall: 16/20. A very solid, tasty beer, that manages to marry a porter body to a hefeweizen citrus hop feel and taste.

Bottle from the Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a thin light tan head. The aroma is ripe red berry fruit, yeast and malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a rich dark malt, fruit, light liqourice, light molasses palate. Medum bodied with average carbonation. So many flavours! An excellent beer. Fully deserves the rating.
