4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bought from Biershop-Bayern online, from Brauhaus Faust, from Miltenberg. Drinking it with a real German who I have forced to brew beer. We’re now drinking it and.... first, it exploded when I opened the flip-top bottle, beer all over my computer!!! That’s ok, because it shows it was conditioned in the bottle. 7%, brewed in 2009, bottle #423 from 879, with Hallertauer Perle and cold lagered in Wild Turkey whiskey casks for 12 weeks in their de-humidified mountain-side cellar.
Basically a Doppelbock aged in whiskey oak casks! mmmmmm... even the idea makes my mouth water.
The aroma is a little on the molassesy side, sweet, apricots and figs, and almost like a Belgian Abbey Dubbel or Trippel. The color is dark brown with red tints. My German companion says, "very mild!" For a German that’s high praise. The taste is very sweet, almost verging on a Belgian Dubbel, but still with caramel, German Münchner malt tones. It also has a dry aftertaste with a tad bitterness in the back of the tongue. The whiskey notes are pronounced but not overpowering, just enough to tell you it’s there. So basically, it tastes like a 80 year old whiskey mixed with a 10 year old abbey beer in a 30:70 ratio. This is one great beer, and my companion agrees, so it’s not only my world-weary, jaded palate that says this. After a few sips, it’s starting to get a bit cloyingly sweet, with licorice, though. We have a 0.75L bottle to drink, so I’m glad I got another person to help me finish it. Basically, great as an aperitif or with cake, preferably a Frankfurter Kranz, since Miltenberg is near FfM.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle #535 (vintage 2007): A bit unclear, rather quickly collapsing fluffy off-white head, complex nose: walnut-oil, dried fruits and caramelly to toasty malt, including a touch of old wine and a delicate -Stout-like - acidity; moderate to solid sweet flavour, supported by an acidic tinge and a faint bitterness. A shovel of dry raisins in the sweet and toasty finish. A bit too sweet, but very complex Doppelbock…

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Leicht fruchtiger Geruch. Däuerlich-fruchtiger Malzbeginn, wobei die Fruchtigkeit schnell zum Fehlaroma mutiert. Muffig, viel zu süß, Apfelaromen. Nicht wirklich gut! 12/7/6/5/12/6
