4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Trafalgar Wines, Brighton. Looks great - as you would expect from a Munchner special; reddish brown, like a beaver (the four legged kind) submerged in cherry cola. Rich, delicious aroma of Lyle’s golden syrup cake and chicken satay mixed with honey and sultanas. Seriously. Taste is initially strongly honey, syrup and ginger but settles down, avoiding being too sweet as the bittersweet malt aftertaste comes through. There’s definitely some lemon juice and Benylin in there too. The one downside was that it felt a bit thin and watery but with a taste like this I didn’t mind too much. A triumph indeed - and my first 4+ score in 50 beers. It’s been a long time...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has toasted malt and dark bread. Taste is malty, leans definitely towards the sweet side, dark bread, bread crust, burnt sugar and finishes with a slight earthy bitterness. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Overall it’s quite good but a bit sweet for my taste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Dark sweet brew not as bitter and extreme as Salvator, definitely sweeter and creamier. Some bitterness in the finish but this is a malt bomb doppelbock. Slight booziness to it, but fits the style and isnt abrasive. Reminds me of the Weltenberg barock dunkel with its cookie malt taste, just this one is a bit more fortified. Cool beer but not my favorite ever in the style.

0.5l bottle. Dark ruby body, thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, toast, orange zest and floral hops. Taste of caramel, toast, chocolate, orange zest, some berries and floral hops. One of the sweeter and less roasty doppelbocks. I like it a lot.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brian body, beige head. Brown bread, pound cake, bay leaves, bit dusty. Totally in style and while the clean fermentation makes it a little dull, it’s quality stuff. Tasty malty body, very pleasant alcohol warmth. Not sharp or nasal at all, which i like. Generally I would prefer more sweetness but from now and then a good bock is very much appreciated, and this a good one. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Bottle. Almost black color, tan head. Smell of chocolate. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, roasted malt. Heavy sweet, light bitter. Not bad, but it actually tastes more like cocoa then beer.
