3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl swingtop bb11/15, Maruhn. Ruby maple pour, very nice cap. Releases little of its supposed world-class (WBC 2012 Gold) quality charm upon nosing, even when letting it chamber: some roasted nuts, dried molasses on Graubrot toast. Taste is equally hermetic: slow honey, nut paste, honey-coated malts, Kellogg’s Smacks: quality foodstuffs, but little to redeem this heavy-hitting, bulky style that will probably always remain too literal a sum of its constitutive ingredients to me, although the abv is well-hidden, mouthfeel very smooth. The yeast does its thing without any extra lure, joining honey with hops in honest toil, then goes quietly home for a hard-won Feierabend. After downing the better part of a bottle you can feel your paunch starting to expand, the appetite for more inspired fare dwindling.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Trinkgut in Goch. The beer is dark ruby colored, with a small and fast disappearing cream colored head, CO2 level is good. In the aroma the sweetness of dark fruits and caramel, and also tones of roasted malts and a hint of alcohol. The taste is light sweet with tones of caramel, to change in a light malty bitterness with a alcoholic finish. The finish is malty and a little alcoholic. Overall, a nice Doppelbock.

Reviewed on 19/12/14. Bottle, 500ml. A clear dark ruby beer with a small white head that fades away almost inmediatly. Aroma is of dried fruits, alcohol and maybe apple cider. Not much going on really. Taste is bitter with a strong alcoholic finish. Moderate carbonation and some astringency. Gets out of control at the end. Nice deers in the bottle.
