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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber pour covered by a light off-white head. Rather alcoholic, candied malts and earthy, caramelly aromatic components. Almost woody in mouth with an interesting concentration on maple-like sweetness that takes a sugary toffee turn towards the finish. Well, its aroma is enticing enough, but the palate feels too small for its size, thin-medium bodied at most and with a rather inefficient carbonation. Earthy, rooty, caramel notes feel simpler than they might be in those overly tight clothings.
