3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours intense clear ruby red with light brown frothy head. Aroma is really chocolatey. Loads of dark dried fruits, figs, strawberry jam, some mint and bridge mix. Light earthy hops, bread crust, light booze. Tobacco? Taste chocolate malts, really toasty, sweet light burnt caramel, figs in alcohol, turns dry toasty with slight hoppy finis, the earthy hops, full body and really hidden abv, only subtle on the back of the tongue! Nice take on a bock.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel, dark roasted malts, and hints of coffee fill the nose. While a solid brown pour with a handsome espresso head produces normal lacing. The taste is robust, malt forward and somewhat bitter. Richly roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, caramel, and a smokey peat note. Medium body and medium carbonation. Bitterish dry finish. Slight suggestions alcohol in the finish. Overall, this is a complex brew that improves as it warms.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a glass. Black with fluffy light brown head. Aroma is dark fruit, medium body, medium/well carbonated, and little lacing. Taste is roasted malt, smoke, dark fruit, and hints of alcohol. This is as much as a strong dark belgian ale as a doppelbock. Hell this could easily save two people.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. BB 10.1.2014. The colour is deep reddish brown and with a big, creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, leather, coffee, dried fruit, rye bread, some alcohol and a good dose of hops. Complex. Fruity flavour with much hops at first, and then goes into a chocolate middle stage before ending quite roasted. Alcohol warmth in the background. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. An incredible complex and compact doppelbock. Is rich with a lot of hops still very present after over 2 years of aging.
