Bottle at home courtesy of mctapps, cheers Sabine
hazy peaty brown with tan lacing. Fruity prunes, sultana and milk chocolate. Lively carbonation, full bodied, sweet, dry, a little cloying and heavy, fruity, toasty notes, vegetal notes. Smells better than it tastes.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I haven’t had many Dopplebocks but this is the beer that makes me want to have more. Damn it’s good. Oatmeal, roasted barley, burnt toffee, kibbles, leather, nuts and smokey tobacco come forth in both nose and wonderfully matching flavour. This fine specimen pours a colour akin to a watery dark roast coffee with a creamy tan head. The body, however, is quite rich and creamy with a nice smooth mouthfeel despite a light prickliness from the carbonation. A bitter bock that does it smooth as velvet.

Bottle. Dark red/brown body with a tall head. Aroma has a warm bready roast with all kinds of red berries. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Bready taste with a nice roast and pleasant hop bitterness. Chewy finish with more roasty bread. Great balance. So fulfilling. Maybe it’s because the timing is just right but tonight it feels almost perfect.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mogwai Mat&Bar. Aroma of malts, raisins and dates. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Taste is very sweet and full of malts. Palate, though, is very thin and drinkable. Overall a disappointment, heard much good stuff about this beer but I guess it is not my type of beer.

Very smooth caramel flavor. Excellent beer, one of my favorites along with Optimator. Only negative is that is more expensive than Optimator.
