Bottle from Tesco, consumed at home. Ruddy brown, clear-ish. Small tan head. Black cherry, basil, toast and chocolate malt aroma. Sweet and fruity taste with a heavy malty character. Full palette with plentiful carbonation. A well-crafted strong beer. Would I have this again? In a hot minute.

Nose is caramel, nuts slight coco. Taste is overpoweringly sweet, slight nut and caramel with the faintest smoke in the finish. Touch of metallic. Mouth feel is fine. The sweetness overpowers and drowns out all the interest.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Classic Italian, a dark Doppelbock with Vienna-like characteristics. Tasted in Venice in 2004. Light beige foam, colour a dark burgundy brown, darker than amber. Quite complex malty aroma, caramel, nuts, lightly toasted and even very faintly smoky accents; taste likewise, malty, sweetish, multi-layered, overall caramelly, very enjoyable with a clean, smooth finish.
