4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My first beer in the excellent Weiss-Blau, a Bavarian beer and food set up in Charlottenburg, Berlin on 17th Jan 2014.
0.33 litre bottle.
Good dark amber/brown body, large head beige to off-white in colour: I poured it my self into a half-litre glass, so had plenty of room to pour robustly.
The nose is all about over roasted malts and what aromas they produce, caramel being the dominant one in this brew, other malty molasses type smells arrive by the bucket load as you take deep sniffs of this obviously sweet beer.
The taste is again all about those roasted malts, the flavours given off being very similar to the aromas but with an undertone of balsamic vinegar which gave an oldness feel to the flavours, this added an extra dimension to the whole thing. It almost became Port like in taste.
Rich, tasty, interesting, complex and powerful: a very good Doppelbock in every sense.
