2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2oz bottle, from Party Town. Clear brownish red color. Pours with a nice thin khaki head. Leaves decent, thicker lace. Medium to bigger body, lightly slick. Smooth, moderate strength carbonation. Close to being creamy, pretty full. Moderate bready, dark fruity aromas. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, with a light lagery bite. Solid doppelbock, but light macro type lager bite holds it back.

Its an okay doppelbock. Not as sweet as the average of the style, but it has a nice mild finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well I might as well continue my Italian streak this evening, at least this doppelbock is a nice change-up from the overload of pale lagers I've sampled today. Has a solid appetizing burgundy brown appearance with a good head and lacing, aroma is light but flavorful with dark fruit and roasty malt. Taste is the same, although the alcohol notes are not masked so well. Also just a bit flat watery texture. On a positive note, the dark fruit flavor is very enjoyable, and the finish is clean. Decent example of the style.

Muted fruity berry notes and some roasted maltiness in the nose, more fruitiness in the mouth with a low dry bitterness and some alcoholic notes, more berry fruitiness in the finish with a low roasted bitterness, some earthiness and retronasal alcohol lingering.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown color with a dense creamy beige head. Sharp, fruity toasted malt nose with notes of caramel and toasted walnuts. Upfront, sweet toasted malt has notes of brown bread and dried fruit. Later on, there is a chewy, wine-like character with obvious notes of alcohol. Some spicy resiny hops in finish. Overall, very full-bodied and flavorful and reminiscent of the Bavarian Doppelbock style.
