Moravius (595) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2014
Niedliches kleines Fläschchen (20 cl) von Getränkefeinkost Berlin. - Rotbraun, klar, rasch schwindender Schaum. - In der Nase breit süßes Karamelmalz mit schwachen Röstnoten, herb fruchtig-weinig, etwas fuselig - wie ein typischer Doppelbock halt. - Antrunk kräftig karamelmalzig aber nicht zu süß. Brotrinde, leichtes Röstmalz. Mild rezent, vollmundig. Abgang kräftig holzig-krautig hopfenherb, wenngleich etwas dumpf. Längerer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Ordentlicher Doppelbock nach deutscher Tradition. Den „Maisgritz“ (Maisgrieß) schmeckt man nicht heraus.

McGarnigle (565) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2014
My bottle has a ’Sale’ sticker on it and is about two months past its due date. Still, the faults of this beer don’t seem to have anything to do with freshness. I applaud the Italians from taking a shot at doppelbock, but this is thin and weak. There is an almost chocolatey tone underneath, which is nice, but not enough. Sorry excuse for the style, though not that bad beer overall.

Bottiglia da 33cl. Color tonaca di frate con schiuma fine color nocciola di media tenuta. Aromi tostati, di caramello e frutta matura. Al palato inizio dolcino caramellato con finale tostato dove si sente parecchio l’alcol.

rosenbergh (7353) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2014
330 ml bottle. BB 08/04/15. From the brewery in Forst/Algund (BZ), Italy.
Clear coppar colour with a small light tan head. Strong sweet malty aroma with some dryness, sweetness and dark fruits. Very sweet and super malty flavour with mild bitterness and sugar. Quite OK for a Doppelbock... not my style anyway.
