3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark caramel with a rapidly fading head. The aroma is sweet and flavorful. The taste is pretty rich and complex. Nothing too over the top but fairly well balanced. It’s medium-full bodied but quite drinkable at 8%. Not bad!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg, The Rake, Southwark, 04/04/12. Mahogany with copper tints and a slim beige top. Aroma has some synthetic, sweetened fruit lambic (kriek). Sweet and Tunes-accented; sweet raisin, synthetic cherry, malt loaf; milk choc, honey-dripped fig. Sickly without enough malt seriousness. Too much of a ladybeer for me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a moderate brown color with a thin head and not too much in the way of lacing. The nose carries some light caramel malt and a bit of bread. Quite tame. The flavor is really quite blend with none of the deep maltiness I expect from a good doppelbock. Medium body with adequate carbonation. Nothing special here.
