Worth trying if the price isn’t ridiculous. I enjoyed it but I probably would try a different einstok before I bought the doppel again.

Bottle had on tube in a pissed state thanks to Eddy. It’s quite roasty and burnt but drinks very easily. Kind of like a dark lager

Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head that quickly fades. No visible carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of nuts, metal and caramel. Flavour of lightly roasted malt, honey, stewed tea and a slightly sour (but not unpleasant) metallic tang. Faint spice. Medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Nice fizz. Quite sweet. My first Doppelbock, quite nice too.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not the average Doppelbock.
This one is a bit thinner, hoppier and spicy.
No bells and whistles, still worth the effort.
A fair new view on the style.
