Deep brown pour. The nose is fairly sweet with a little bit of salty character. Soy-like chewiness. A soft toastiness in addition to a bit of plummy fruit. Salty/savoury character on the back. Full-bodied and a little bit chewy. Kind of odd, but it’s okay.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a fluffy beige head. Nose is chocolate, raspberry jam and brown sugar. Almost full body with a tang. Taste is bittersweet chocolate, sour cherry and caramel with a bitter grassy finish. Rich and satisfying. I would have never guessed this was a doppelbock.

On tap at KØ-10. It’s a dark brown beer topped by a small, dense beige head. The aroma is sweetish, with some dried fruits and chocolate, and a nice hoppyness. The flavor is quite bitter and also sweet, with dried fruits and chocolate. Nice bitterness in the end. Warming and full-bodied. A pleasant one, more bitter than most doppelbocks, but it suits it. 100506
