Hazy orange color with tan head. Aroma is honey, fruits, some malts. Taste is similar. Not too sweet Doppelbock, well-balanced, not too strong. Very good!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster at the breweryschank in the Market. Hazy dark gold with a fine, low head. Fruity, rich malt aroma, honey, peaches, oranges, biscuits, pineapple, lightly tropical in character. Sweet and fruity but with a solid body and good carbonation. Tangy, lightly hoppy, quite drinkable and nice. Would label this a heller bock, though.

Draught Sampler @Marktschänke, MÜ 2015/3 as Gottfried Jakobs Blanker Bock, 7,6%. Almond glue on white bread nose. Taste open on soapy proteins, bocky pale malt sweetness and honey kept very well in check by a balanced mouthfeel. Good herbal bitterness mixing in floweryness amongst the marzipan glue-dense malts, giving off some schnaps or Obstler. Good, but glad I could have less than a Halbe.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At the brauerei. Hazy golden to orange in color, vigorous carbonation bubbles on display, nice white to off white colored head. Aroma of sweet bread and grains and caramel and light fruits. Flavor followed and was a bit too sweet to present an underlying lager quality behind it all. Quite nice though and hard to believe it was 7+% abv. Mouthfeel full but not sticky, which if it was in conjunction with the sweetness, might have turned to a poor experience. Strong carbonation helped keep this pretty drinkable.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at Forschungsbrauerie. Warm sunny October Sunday. A real Shredded Wheat moment. Two was enough. A real Bock with honey, cloves and hops which misleads one to drink more than is good for oneself. Where the rest of Munich is devouring more and more of substandard bier,this is indeed a joy to behold and enjoy.Worth the 20 minute SBahn to Perlach. The band weren’t too shabby either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brauhaus, 7.6% ABV
Hazy golden color with generous compact head. Moderate aroma of malt, sweetish, with light fruitiness. Full bodied, good malt flavor, with medium sweetness, but well blended; correct bitterness, with a light hay touch in the final; the alcohol is quite well hidden.
Balanced and pleasant.
