This beer reminds me of Salvatore. Malty, little hops, and easy to drink. If you haven't tried this one, buy it!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/26/2014. Pours clear deep ruby red/brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness/roast, raisin, plum, fig, herbal, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness/roast, raisin, plum, fig, herbal, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness/roast, raisin, plum, fig, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good doppelbock style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Vom Fass. Ambre farben, wenig Schaum. Sehr getreidig und malziger Duft. Antrunk süß, dann röstig, fast ein Hauch Rauch. Wenig bitter. Besser als die helle Variante.
