Regardless of the style, I found this quite a tasty number but, due to cloying sweetness at the back I couldn’t, and wouldn’t want to drink more than one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille. ruby-amber coloured, smaller and stable off-white head; toasty-nutty nose, not too sweet, very faint metallic traces detectable; moderate sweet and (malty-)bitter flavour, baraly full bodied; a tinge of molasses is detectable in the dark-malty a caramelly and bitter finish. A pleasant, easy-drinking Doppelbock...

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
BB 15 Feb 15. Poured a translucent bronzy red colour with 5mm a light tan foamy head that retained poorly but laced OK. Carbonation very high and coarse. Aroma of dark chocolate, sweet caramel and hints of coffee. Taste of sweet dark fruit, chocolate and hints of coffee and maybe a hint of alcohol; low bitterness. Light to medium body. Smooth and sweet with no real taste on the finish but still quite nice.

From a bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown with a tan head, oaky malty aroma and rich malty flavours. I like it, a good doppel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle bb07/2014, Monteith sampler bierpost. Label mentions 6%, hardly Doppelbock strength. Almost ale-intense roast notes, toasted nuts, caramel. Pours a reddish brown. Taste sees more brown ale dark malt aromatics, a leathery component, soy sauce and nut oil apart from diluted caramel, - some residual sugars and oiliness. Lingering malt bitterness (chestnut shell, industrial maple syrup). Still better than many DE Doppelbocks, a style that rarely inspires doppelmirth.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rather dark brown color, topped with a small and lasting tan head.
There is a strong and very pleasant chocolate aroma. Delicious.
The taste starts slightly sweet and chocolatey, some roasted malts and finishes with a little bitterness.
creamy and tasty.
