Bottle at Carrabba’s. Served in lager glass, reddish brown color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt. Taste is sweet, roasty and malty. Medium body, decent bitter finish. Surprised by this one, very good compared to its boring pale lager brother. Would do again in Italian restaurants.

330ml tap in Murano island, Italy 18.05.13. Dark amber reddish body and no head. Caramel and prune aroma, maybee some tiramisu. It was a warm day in Murano, after a beautiful boat ride in a packed boat and browsing about 100 different fabrics, show rooms and small shops selling glass it was refreshing and a great thirst quencher.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is malt, almost like sniffing malt extract with a hint of a metallic smell and a touch of marmite. Flavour is a simple sweet maltiness and not well balanced, even for a doppelbock.
