3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown/black, clear, with next to no head. Aroma is light, sweet, with a touch of caramel. Flavor is fairly sweet, with some roasted coffee and caramel notes, and a very solid, bitter, grassy dose of noble hops. A nice Kristkindlmarkt surprise.

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..

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2005 Screw-top bottle. Smoky chocolate malt and metallic aroma. Dark brown color with some head. Chocolate malt flavor with a moderate metallic/astringent and hops finish. Pretty nice doppelbock - not too astringent.
