3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Actually really enjoying this. Great session beer, with just enough roast and flavor to make it interesting. Very smooth on taste, though palate isn’t too complex. Light sweet and bitter finish. Some caramel here. Dark brown pour with great mocha head and lacing. Bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33 l bottle. Crystal clear, ruby with thick, soapy, slowly diminishing, white head. Aroma of cherries, molasses and candy sugar with a bit of alcohol in the end. Sweetish taste which is the same as the aroma. Slightly alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied, creamy, chewy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Really nice doppelbock which serves perfectly as a winter warmer. Much better than their Weihnachtsbier!

Bottle, amber orange, really nice bready malt aroma and flavor, one of the better doppels I have tried, you have to like the style to enjoy but very solid all around, bottle throws you off as a gimmick

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of thick malt, caramel, toffee, raisin, nuts. Flavour is sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Nicely full bodied, but overall too sweet for my taste.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown translucent, fluffly foam that collapses immediately. Smells of cherries and nuts. Creamy texture, good carbonization. Thin in its somewhat Christmassy taste.

Mellanmörk med obefintligt skum. Smaken mkt maltig med ytterst lite sötma. Eftersmaken lång med bränd, lite pepprig, karamell. Tämligen mkt kolsyra för öltypen.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It pours a very dark gold/brown with a 1 finger of white foam. Another brew with fine lacing.
I have to say that the smell is awesome. Lots of caramel malt with a wee bit of grain, maybe a hint or two of chocolate.
The very same taste wise. A bit of a stronger grain presence but not out of line for the style at all.
Smooth mouth feel, almost at the top of the food chain as far as Doppelbocks that I have tried. Just as good as Celebrator, imho

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautifully dark brownish red with dirty yellowish foam, like I like it. Smells oddly cheesy with hints of sex, but also a good feeling of alcohol. Tastes like malt, alcohol, rock candy and a bit of soy. Too alcohol-intensive for my taste, but not by much.
