3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
$4.29 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours color colored with little carbonation and almost no head. Aroma of sweet wheat and - shit, cola. Taste is similar. Almost too sweet in the finish... lack or carbonation makes me feel like I’m drinking a can of pop that sat out overnight.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle [Thanks to Barettalbier for this Top 50 Doppelbock!]. Clear, dark burgundy colour with small to average, thick, mostly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Mellow malty aroma, fruity notes of red berries, cherry, fig, raisin; caramel and toffee in the background, a touch of liquorice; dry hints of fruit parings tend to evoke resolvent allusions. Taste is moderately sweet fruity, again red berries, cherry, fig and raisin, additional notes of toffee, caramel, white coffee, interludes of treacle inspired sweetness; oily texture, slightly sticky palate. Rich and complex, relatively light for 9% abv, surprisingly fruity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby red colored, frothy beige head, good lasting. Aroma is of caramel, dried fruits, some chocolate and toasty notes. Taste is medium to very sweet malty, caramel, toffee, bit chocolate, lots of dried fruits, medium herbal bitterness, bittersweet finish. Full bodied, sticky. Too sweet overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 33 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Reddish brown beer with refections ruby, average beige head. Aromas soft malted with notes of alcohol, red berries and chocolate. The taste is soft, round, with roasted, molasses-licorice, black cherry, choc and a touch of vanilla. Creamy beer, complex but heady. Bittersweet hop. The top of the style.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, dark copper in appearance with minimal head that fades to nothing. Aroma of bread pudding, overripe dark fruits, and sweet cooked sugars - fantastic. Flavor is nearly as good with sweet malty notes of prune and raisin dominating. I like sweet beers, and this one is near the far end of that spectrum. Very smooth with just a hint of alcohol and slightly syrupy/cloying, though finish is quite clean. Great stuff.
