I enjoyed drinking this.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a reddish brown with a small tan head and an aroma of various herbs, malts, chocolate, caramel and roastiness. The taste is slightly sweet and spicey, but not too much. The finish has a short-lasting sourness, that was quite surprising for a doppelbock. Not much wrong with this beer, except for the finish, but I won’t drink this anymore.
