GoufCustom (1160) - HONG KONG - SEP 12, 2015

330 ml bottle bought at Berliner German Bar & Restaurant in Langham Place, Mongkok.

Looks: Clear Cola brownish-black colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with residual soapy light beige foam which fades in 20 seconds; Small sticky lacing with zero carbonation.

Aroma: Fairly fragrant and sweet dark malt, with strong caramel, strong toffee, strong plums, mustiness, brown sugar, light Cola, light chocolate, light alcohol and faint grass.

Taste: Mid to strong sweet dark malt, with light roastyness, fairly strong coffee, caramel, dark fruits, shades of rum, light chocolates, molasses, dark bread, yeast, lemon and moderate bitter grassy hops.

Body: Mid to light body. Thin and fairly slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Solid dark maltyness in a light body with no heaviness. Fairly roasty. Coffee, light chocolate and plums permeate. Good rum like alcohol and liquorices. High Sweetness but just right. Dark bread and fair lemony hops to round. Pretty good.

Hoppiness: Faint grass in nose, Fair lemon and low grassy taste. Bitterness is moderate liquorices for a lasting, light sweet-bitter finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Malty, sweet and quite easy to mouth.

Comments: This one feels more like a Dunkler Bock, with good dark roasty malt, mustiness, and less sweetness. Down side being a too thin body (as in Tucher’s Bajuvator), and the caramel toffeeness is not as impressive. A solid one to enjoy but not a top Bock.

"gotta say, as doublebocks go, this one was disappointing. i wasn’t expecting a Celebrator here, but a wannabe perhaps? nope...just raisiny sugary sweetness in the nose and flavor, lack of balance, and it didn’t have that liquid bread quality i look for in the style. that said, i’ve never had a BAD doublebock, so it’s still an ok beer, but probably the worst i’ve had within the style. had Mammoths right after...much better!"

330ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga)
Huge malty aroma, total doppelbock. Some huskiness, very grainy, nicely toasted. Taste follows that exactly. Slightly slick palate from the sugars, but decent carbonation makes it almost light. Nice rich red, clear, small brief head. Such nice sweet malty grains, so much barley. This is why I love doppelbocks. Smooth rounded, barley, touch yeasty too. Nice one.

0.33 l bottle at Timo A’s. Reddish brown color. Sweet malty and bready aroma with raisins and toffee. Sweet rich malty taste with warming higher alcohol, bread and raisins. Full bodied. Well made but not so complex dobbelbock.
