3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with a half finger tan head that fades rather quickly leaving just a tiny bit of foam on top. No lacing.
Aroma is full of malt. Lots of caramel, toffee, and burnt sugar along with an almost soy sauce like character but it is not off-putting. A touch of chocolate as well.
The flavor is very heavy on the burnt sugar/caramel but it doesn’t become astringent. This leads to some milk chocolate and a touch of coffee and toast. A little hop bitterness towards the finish but it is far in the background. Malt dominates. Mouthfeel is full and sticky/sweet but stays just below being cloying.
Overall, one of the best Doppelbocks out there. This is probably one of my least favorite styles but I can appreciate it for what it is; a nice, malty, cold weather beer and this one really packs in tons of flavor.

Ottima birra. Il primo impatto è devastante per la bontà, profumo di tostato, caramello e cioccolato, in bocca oltre a confermare gli aromi riesci a sentire anche sensazioni di cuoio e frutta secca. Unica pecca, non invoglia a berne tanta.

Oh wow, this has an amazing aroma. I get toffee, caramel, slight chocolate, roastyness and a slight leatheryness. Flavor is amazing. Chocolate, toffee, butterscotch caramels, leather, dark fruits, raisin, nuts, spicyness. Amazingly compex and well balanced. Finish is fairly dry, but not overly so. Delicious.

Bom equilíbrio entre dulçor/caramelo e amargor/torrado do malte. Sensação de álcool perceptível. Bom custo/benefício.

Bottle. Deep, very dark brown pour with a dense mocha head. Aroma is molasses, raisins, toffee, a hint of smoke. Flavour is rich but not strong - dense and complex, but not overly sweet. Perfect light carbonation and a light dry finish. Beautifully made doppelbock.
