3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 500 ml, bought in Germany. Poured into a snifter glass. ABV 8.1%
Light mahogany colour that turns to a beautiful red ruby when hold against the light on the body, clear and transparent. Nice two fingers tall, light beige head, with good retention.
On the aroma chocolate, hints of vanilla, and a very appealing smell from the alcohol that makes it smell like a good brandy when you inhale deep.
Taste follows the nose, albeit less intense, very tasty beer. Also, is this 8.1%?? I could never tell.
Medium thin body, good carbonation. Nice dryness on the palate.
Overall, a very tasty and drinkable doppelbock, really good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dense yellow head, vanishing quite fast, and very hazy brown/orange colour. Smells bread, malt, and little alcohol. Taste is not the usual sweet for a doppelbock, but it’s quite hoppy, of course smoky, roasted, but with a nice bitter finish. Low carbonation, and alcohol is present, but ok. A nice one in this gender, I liked it better than usual.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. A nice Bock with a bit fruitness in the nose and bit alcohol in the end. Quite unspectacular but a nice and definitely brewed with love.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark amber / dark brown colour with low head and smooth body. Nose of rich malt. Taste of ripe grains, mild hops, nuts, caramel, torf, sour mash and malt. It tastes like a typical Doppelbock but isn’t as dull, boring and dusty as one. Easy and nice to drink but needs definately temperature.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma muy suave, ligeramente dulce. sabor más bien alcohólico, sobre todo en el retrogustro. No me parece una doppel excesivamente reseñable. Hay mejores opciones, aunque se deja beber.
