Dobry Doppelbock, imponuje zwlaszcza piana dosc trwala, ladna gesta. Metnosc tego karmelowo alkoholowego piwa jest spora. Swieze w smaku lekko karmelowe toffi oraz mleczna czekolada. Alkohol spory i niestety niezbyt ukryty, ale to jedyna wada do poprawienia.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Backlog rating. Bottle at the Chriso’s May tasting, London. The beer itself does not live up to expectations from the name. It’s mainly sweet, caramely and bland. Unexciting. Would get a higher vote for the name though

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l bottle. Deep orangangish brown body, light brown head. Aroma of caramel, toast and floral hops. The taste has a significant peach and orange character with notes of caramel and floral hops. As it warms up, it starts to develop a roasty character. It’s suprisingly fruity for a doppelbock, but I like it.

Bottle shared at Chrisso’s May 2014 tasting 25/05/2014. Bottle from getranke oase in Munchen. Dark orange / caramel coloured pour with a lasting loose off white head. Aroma is nutty, berry, sweet caramel malts, slight stale. Flavour is nutty caramel, caramel, sweet, slightly stale malts, hint of vanilla and choc. Palate is flat and dull - lowish carbonation. So so.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle bb08/2014, "Die Wilden Cambas" sampler. Translucent, watery amber pour with lacklustre collapsing head. Malty aromas of vegemite, nut and old honey syrup. Tastewise not very bright either, presenting a limited range of tired nutty and honey notes on a superficial, all-upfront palate. Very disappointing for a modern interpretation amped to 8,5% and, as with many Cambas tasted so far, not meriting its provocative name, as not all that "wild" or even all that engaged. Finished with this after 3 sips..having me actually long for a textured old school Bock,

25th May 2014
Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Stop sniggering at the back and pay attention! What we have here is a hazy amber beer with a tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and light and a little soft. Superfine carbonation. Sweetish malts, touch of cream. Light tangy dried fruits. Light finish. Not too bad.
