Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. The taste is sweet, bread like, with caramel is not bad. The smell is just about the same. The look is brownish in color and has a small beige colored head.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Arden Wines. Steady-fizzing ruby capped with beige. Sweet toffee, prune, Dolly Mixtures and muscovado nose. Meat stock hints; Allsorts, cocktail cherry, prune, juicy sultana, muscovado flavour; heavy and sweet but the booze takes a backseat. Surreptitiously powerful with the brown sugar and dried fruit sweetness to cleave your head cleanly from your shoulders when you’re least expecting it. Good sessions beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown/red colour with beige head. Bready smell, but not really a strong smell. Some herbal taste, roasted notes, and a good bitterness, that last long. Full-bodied. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Una doppelbock decisa. Marrone e con poca schiuma, entra dolce, con predominanza di caramello, ma esce piuttosto amara, con sentori di tostato. Questa dissonanza dolce/amaro caratterizza questa birra e la rende particolare, in un panorama di bock che, diciamo la verità, si somigliano un po’ tutte. I gradi alcolici si sentono ma non dispiacciono, il finale poi, è persistente. Per me una sorpresa, buona. ---- A doppelbock decided. Brown with little foam, enters sweet, with a predominance of caramel, but comes rather bitter, with hints of toast. This dissonance sweet / bitter characterizes this beer and makes it special, in a landscape of bock which, let’s face it, you look a bit ’all. The alcoholic feel, but do not mind the final then, is persistent. A surprise for me, good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with two fingers of head that disappear really fast.
Aroma is caramel, toffee and some alcohol.
In mouth is mostly the same: cara malts with a alcoholic end.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet, warming and juicy dark red beer with notes of plum and cherry beneath deep, dark caramel malt flavor. Very light bitterness. A bit childish and comforting.
