1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Shitty strong lager aroma, just what the tramps like. Wallpaper paste, quite a few esters, but some acetone-like aspects too. Tastes just as bad. Horror. Sticky sweet malts, booze coming off. Smooth palate, decent carbonation. Dirty esters, chemical and harsh. Sweet and rough. Nope, do not want.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Colour...clear amber with a thick off white head. Nose...roasty, malty and sweet. Palate...dry for a doppelbock, but that’s ok as most doppelbocks are too sweet for me! There’s honey and honey malt with heather and light spice. A decent effort!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. I like the tranquil colour scheme they used on the label. Copper body, medium beige head. Aroma has berries, jam, chocolate, light toast. Sweet and syrupy palate. Taste has bread, berries, light caramel. Has good flavours but in general it’s not very complex. Finish is too sugary - needs more bitterness or sharpness to balance it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vinbudin in Reykjanesbaer (BB Nov 2014). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, molasses, bread). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Mild, simple aroma, but pleasant and clean. Quite balanced and drinkable for the style, but of course it’s more of a dunkler bock at only 6.7%. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas, CA. The aroma is quite sweet with a fair amount of toffee and residual sugars. Scant underlying toast, and a pinch of grassiness from the hops. Transparent copper-orange body present with a creamy, pretty large whitish head present. Rather pale for a doppelbock. Starts with more sweet toffee and light caramel flavors. Some melanoidins also appear towards the middle. Finishes with moderate buttery diacetyl, and not much else.
