2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at a small pizza place (That’s Amore) in Auckland CBD. Clear, dark amber pour with a beige head leaving minimal lace. Malty, candy nose. Medium body and carbonation. Bubblegum, yam, cotton candy and some bread. Finish has some earthiness which may be the type of hops used, but it’s still fairly sweet. I’m not very familiar with this style, but this one doesn’t have lots of appeal.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flimsy foam that disappears very quickly, but it abstracts a pleasant inviting aroma of caramel and hard roasted malt. The taste lightly fruity grapes and berries, relatively very malt sweetness and a caramelized feeling that fills the mouth. After some time results in a soft and full hop bitterness that is very lengthy. It amazes me that such a masterpiece by a bock comes from Italy. Very tasty and delicate.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear coppery brown color, topped with a medium sized off-white head. Quite strong malty aroma, roasted notes with some caramel as well. Taste is very sweet and malty, some mild caramle and roasty notes and presence of gentle alcohol burn. Not a fan of doppelbocks, this one wasn’t as strong as some others, so a bit better, though still not the best.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought several bottles in Italy. The beer is dark Brown colored and pours a stable cream colored head with livingly co2. The aroma is roasted malts, caramel, liquorice and a hint of alcohol. The taste is light sweet with tones from the aroma, roasted malts and some warming alcohol. The finish is full and nicely bitter with some warming alcohol. Gave it total of 15 because I?m surprised. Never thought Italians were capable of brewing this.

Uhm - overraskende god! Sødlig, mørk og let fyldig. Godt alternativ til alm. 'tynd' pilsner.
