3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle from Munich Airport. Pours clear dark amber with a fairly decent, but short lived off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with raisins, dark fruits and hints of toast, alcohol and spices. Sweet and caramelly with some fruity notes and light bitterness in the finish. Sweet aftertaste with caramel and raisins. Warming alcohol, but fairly pleasant, but a tad to sweet for my liking.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml swing-top bottle. Courtesy of Jan Erik@"From Latvia with Alus Beer Session" 22.03.12. Dark brown body. Weak aroma of sweet malt, date, raisin, prunes and alcohol. Taste of cherry, date, nuts and almonds. Again there is the alcohol, which gives it a metallic finish. All in all there is just too much alcohol!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml swing top bottle, bought in Germany. Poured into a snifter. ABV 7.2%
Colour is deep mahogany brown, with red ruby shades once hold against the light. One finger of off-white head, with average retention.
Aroma is mostly milky chocolate, with malts and hay on the background.
Taste is not much different than the aroma. Again, milky chocolate, malts, the hay, although less notable, a somewhat red wine-y taste but only for a glimpse, and after all of the above parade, the chocolate returns, much heavier now and with a good duration.
Medium thin to thick body, good carbonation and quite dry palate.
Overall, very tasty dobbelbock, I should keep an eye for those in Germany.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle, served in Weizen. Pours red-brown with small white frothy head. Both aroma and taste are caramel, red grape and ripe fruits. Sugary palate. Medium body, average carbonation. In short that’s what basically is, just add it’s well balanced and soft. Not difficult to drink for those who never tried a Doppelbock beer.
