500ml bottle. Clear dark amber colour with average, frothy, rapidly diminishing, minimally lacing, off-white head. Slightly grainy and strawy aroma, only very cautiously malty for a Doppelbock. Taste is moderately sweet malty, malt lozenge, rock sugar, malt spicyness, cautious dry hoppy counterweight. Taste is OK, deficiencies concerning aroma and head.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep amber with a one finger head. Head dissapated quickly. Deep amber color, beautiful in the glass.
Aroma is dark fruits, malt, and a lot of sweetness.
Taste is sweet, mainly malty and a bit sweet, with enough bitterness to gently balance it. More dark fruits, a little burnt caramel and some spicyness, that i reckon is from the hops not the yeast. A little warming alcohol in the finish like you would expect in a beer of this type.
Overall a solid doppelbock. Should be noted that this bottle is about a year old and has had some time to mellow out.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It’s mahogany red with a small head. The aroma has notes of caramel, syrup, roasted malt, biscuit and dried fruit. The sweet flavor is well balanced and lovely with notes of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruit, light syrup, biscuit, and the finish is slightly spicy with an extremely light touch of alcohol. Truly lovely!
