Thinnish body for the style. Medium sweetness of hard caramels, little hop presence. Touch charred. Easy to drink.

In short: tasty amber ale.

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, murky brown colour with a beige and short foamy layer. Dark malty aroma with notes of chocolate, caramel, dried fruits, also a tad vinous, Port-like flavours are detectable. Moderately sweet and rounded bitter flavour, medium bodied with a flat carbonation (bottle was not perfectly capped). Deep malty taste with notes of caramel, chocolate, liquorice and lighter dried/raisiny fruity notes; the initially herbal hoppy spice gets stronger towards the bitter-sweet and still malt-accented finish. A bit flat on carbon, nevertheless likeable. 07.X.14

edsspoon (464) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle - pours dark amber with a fizzy sparse brown head which bubbles for a while before disappearing. Very hazy if yeast is poured in. Aroma of lemon, cocoa and chocolate with some lime and pineapple notes. Taste of roasted malt, grass and cocoa. Some molasses and dark sugar. Medium bitterness and warming notes. Medium body, medium carbonation. Delightful.

slowrunner77 (5983) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Labelled as doppelsticke alt. definitely drier than any doppelbock. Malty and a bit rich. Dry and slightly more bitter in the finish. Slight plum fruit, dough, dark malts and a hit of hops. Pretty good, but not a standout in a ever crowded market..."

The beer poured a hazed dark golden brown with a thin tan coloured cap. The aroma was grainy, with weak herbal hops, and caramel notes. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour was burnt caramel, some wooden flavours, and a weak hop presence.
