2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with a reddish hue. Head is minimal, floating on top. Pretty subdued aroma, mostly due to being served a bit too cold. Malt obvious some sweet sugary notes. Fairly sweet, no dominating flavors, a touch of bitterness. Body was a little light. A below average doppelbock.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 50cl. Pours a red/brown liquid with a small head. Aroma is not as complex as i thought it would be, with hints of malt, coffee and alcohol. Flavour is kind of sweet but a little unbalanced. Not the best doppelbock that i’ve drunk, but nevertheless a decent one..
