2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin head and a few glints of red. The nose has chocolate, butterscotch and biscuits. The taste has chocolate, honey and a strawberry note on the end. The palate is medium bodied with a reasonably creamy texture in the middle section and a fairly clean finish. Overall, although wishy-washy, the dark malts do a good job of disguising its faults.

Toasted malts, lightly sweet, dark grain malts, soft carbonation, more toasted malts in the background. Boring Dunkler Bock, aroma is OK, palate boring. Keg at The Old Fashioned, Madison, WI.

Bottle from The Spotted Cow 100516. Found this bottle on my work travels, always a bonus. Looks great when poured into the glass, dense black colour with a swish of tan foam. Aroma reminds me of port, warm and a bit smokey and this is reflected in the flavour also. A mighty fine drip.

Aroma of caramel malts. Dark brown more like a doppelbock than a singlebock. Head dissipate very quickly, no lacing. Taste is very sweet, mouthfeel a light lingering sweetness. Just too sweet for me for a lager. Might be a good beer to introduce to females who (in my experience) tend to prefer sweeter beverages.

Bottle from Millets Farm near Abingdon. It’s brown with a light fizz and a thin beige head. There’s caramel and brown sugar throughout. It’s very sweet and the alcohol is very evident. Felt like it was dissolving my teeth. There’s no real off notes in it- but then if you ate brown sugar by the spoonful you wouldn’t get any off notes. Just too sweet for me I’m afraid.
