bottle. Hazy dark brown colour, medium-sized beige head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, malty with flavours of roasted malt and coffee, a bit of cocoa poweder. Hints of pinewood which remind me of a walk in the forest.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ a bar in Erlangen. Dark brown with soapy head. Aroma of butter, cola, and bread. Light palate is slightly oily, slick, and a bit fizzy. Flavors are not so bad, very similar to the aromas with cola, nuts, and bread with sour, oily diacetyl on the palate. Manages to be drinkable in spite of it.

Bottled. Very interesting aroma. A combo you don’t get much: herbal, chocolate, dark slightly smoked malts. Deep brown color, beige head, good lace. Light sweet, light sourish, herbal, light bitter, chocolate. Sparkling yet dryish. Very nice, thank you DerDoppelbock.
