3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Clear bronze with an off-white head that’s modest but lasts well. Aroma of sherry, bread, dried fruit, nuts, grass. Quite syrupy, with low carbonation. Rich but not all that sweet, with toasted bread, raisins, caramel, enough bitterness to stop it from being cloying. Alcohol is well-integrated. There’s no great depth here, but it’s pleasant and well-balanced.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden amber colour with a reassuring carpet of off-white head. There’s a gentle sparkle as well. The aroma is lush and deep with plenty of ripe orchard stonefruit: stewed peaches, apricots and typical German maltiness. I suspect this Doppelbock is quite a different animal than its predecessor. There’s that lush, full bodied chewy maltiness amid a riot of sherbety mouthfeel and a definite sour twinge that adds another layer of appreciation to the beer. There’s a long finish and a strong appreciation from the imbiber..

Bottle 500ml. Very nice, yeasty beer. Aromas of bread, caramel, and alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter, with not the quite balance, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a thin head.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Big and bold with a dark amber colour and a light foam head that crackles as it settles. Aroma is a bit hard to detect although there are some caramel notes that come through. Smooth malt flavour that sits well in nthe mouth and is very enjoyable. Light on the palate with a smoothness that makes it go down easily.
