2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Oktoberfest 2008)
Rich orange, no head. Not much aroma; sweet malts I guess. Quite an alcoholic kick, but a big malty body. A touch of mustard. Overall, not too boozy, but definitely strong. Pretty estery - I would say this falls easily into the European Strong Lager category, rather than Doppelbock. Finish is quite hoppy.

A clear dark amber colored beer, with a small beige head. The aroma of caramel, fruits and alcohol. The taste is caramel sweet, with fruits and some bitter. The aftertaste is alcohol warm with a bitter flavor, which gets stronger.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Aroma not dry, a little bit hoppy. The beer is somehow hard and not strong, every special is missing. Only an average doppelbock.
