Ruby color. Roasty, malty aroma. Malty, bit caramelly taste. Bittersweet finish. Decent brew, but not worth such a percentile or score.

Beautiful red-brown color. The aroma was sweet and bready. The flavor was very sweet malt, prunes, and just a hint of bitterness(or alcohol?) in the finish. Nice full beer.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2004 I'll admit, I wasn't expecting much from this at all. Boy was I wrong! This was a GREAT beer! Dark reddish brown in color with a light reddish brown head. Strong aroma of malts. The whole time I was drinking this I kept thinking how much it reminded me of Paulaner's Salvator. No bullshit, either. This was great. Highly recommended!

Wow - what chewy gooey caramelly goodness! Deep dark red color. Thick malty body, but not too sweet, must be enough hop to dry out the ending. This is a fine fine brew.

I was in an Italian deli and looked into the fridge for something to drink. They had the normal Moretti, and this dark brown brew, called a doppio malto. Well, I figured,hoped that ment dopple bock. Close enough!! This seemed more akin to a barley wine than a true bock, but had that great maltiness, and alocoholly taste that I would expect from something in the 8% range.

Yessss...good stuff. Never disappoints. I refuse to rate this down because it is common and inexpensive. In fact, that is a plus with a beer this good.
