1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottled as doppel bock bb24/4/2008.
this is my first beer experience outside of ML with a stelvin cap!
it pours clear a dark auburn brown with a soft tan tinted off white head.
it smells really skunky, sweet and metallic malty... thatís it?!
the flavor is very two dimensional... crummy hop extract and malt powder... i can reach for chocolate, corn and molasses but itís a stretch. it s far too sweet with nothing developing to make up for the short comings of this sticky mess. i need a shower... 3/3/3/2/8/1.9

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled (as Bischoff Doppel Bock), from Timo A, thanks! Deep amber colour, small beige head. Saltwater, caramel and some slight alcohol in aroma. Flavour is quite much the same. Very bittery and quite harshly dull.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Labeled as Bischoff Doppel Bock, in a screw top bottle. Light khaki colored head with a medium brown body. The aroma is like a dunkel with some cherry flavored bubblegum and a little bit of tobacco. The taste had some nasty green wood and abc gum. There was also a little bit of cheap tobacco. Sweet and doughy.
