3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 mL bottle. 8% alcohol, 2011 "vintage." Medium dark brown, opaque, red tinge, some bubbles and particulate matter. Aroma is pretty intense, purple fruits, caramel malt, butterscotch, chocolate, Medium body. Not much alcohol. Creamy mouthfeel. Quite sweet and fruity, grapey almost. Malt candy. Nice complexity, but for me too sweet with nothing to balance it.

Bottle. Potent cereal grain and faintly estery aroma with some spicy melanoidins and nutty accents. Hazy dark bronze-garnet under a large tan island and lacy ring. Sweet cereal grain flavour with a vinous sourness and modest hops bitterness and plenty of nut accents along with some horehound. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, almost clean finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark brown color, unclear apparently, with small compact head. It has a very strong character of rye, both the aroma and flavor, really unusual in Doppelbocks; it also has a considerable residual sweetness; the dark malts come with some acidity.
Liquid pumpernickel; not bad, but unexpected and strange.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Precioso color rubí oscuro con espuma color crema. Aromas de frutas confitadas, azúcar moreno y un toque de licor. En boca entra suave y con cuerpo medio, los sabores dulces y afrutados se van mexclando con otros ligeramente ácidos e igualmente cargados de fruta. Un ligero gusto tostado y a madera también están presente. Muy rica.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 On tap at La Boîte à Malt. Pours a medium brown with a really thin white head that leaves great lacing. Nose is of sugary raisins, brown sugar. Taste is cloyingly sweet and provides good grapes and treacle flavors. Body is full, mouthfeel really sticky. Carbonation is light. Not bad, just too damn sweet.
