4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy, beautiful amber-brown colour, with malty brown head. Aromas of toffee, dark chocolate and dried berries.
Decent sourness, sweet, malty and medium bitter, alcohol taste comes to the fore. Carbonation is rather flat, but balances well with the heavy body of this bock. Looong and tasty malty finish.
One of the best Bockbeers we have in Germany!
Absolutely must drink.

Bottle. Deep amber in colour with slight carbonation. Berry fruits, some brown sugar and a hint of roast before a warming alcohol finish. Avoided being excessively sweet and enjoyable for it.

Bottle (2 litres!). Pours cloudy dark amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit, with mild notes of hops. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with pronounced fruity and hoppy notes. Sweetish finish, with mild, hoppy aftertaste. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel. Well balanced A very good Doppelbock!

500mL swingtop bottle BB 10/14
Deep ruby body, small dense off-white head persists.
Nose is quite restrained; toffee, grainy maltiness, faint notes of cocoa & spicy dried fruits.
Full bodied, doesn’t allude to the big abv however. Low carbonation, slight warming.
Malt aplenty on the body; grainy cereals, light caramel, biscuit, toasted nuts, notes of dried apricot and sultana. Finishes with a reasonably decent bitterness, drying alcohol lingers, drawing out the palate.
Overall reasonable. Sort of expected (wished for) more in such a big beer, but still tasty.
