4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
How the hell have I not rated this? Anyway, what can you say about the best doppelbock available that hasn’t already been said? Pours a nice deep brown with thick tan head, lots of lacing and residual fluff. Aromas deep of chocolate, molasses, coffee, and roasted malt. Flavor matches well and puts tons of stouts, imperial stouts, and porters to shame. This is the epitome of grand german craftsmanship. When it is all said and done, they do more with less.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
An artfully composed, perfectly balanced, landscapelike beer, opening with aromas of dark caramel malts, molasses, hints of spices and bread, all of them very subtle due to that certain dryness they are taken back into, even nosewise, to be then, on a chewy, never cloying palate, taken up again, with dark, very ripe cherries morphing into old, pipe-tobacco impregnated wood, before ending with a roasted, dry malt bitterness of just the right strength and length. Beautiful!

Ottima birra. Il primo impatto č devastante per la bontŕ, 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.
