Copper colored, clear with tight head. Slight maltiness with flight metallic flavor and aroma. Slight sherry, licorice flavor. Crisp with well carbonated body. Perhaps an older bottle.

Head disappears as quickly as when a ring makes it on to your wifes finger. Nice malty start with strong aroma and alcohol content. Very enjoyable flavour makes it worth a special occation but not a weekly tradition.

Thick and strong. Feels like drinking bread almost. Roasty but with sweetness rather than sharpness. Buttery. Head disappears fast. Overall a good Doppelbock but not perfect.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has raisin and porto. Full bodied beer, sweet and malty. Porto, peach and hopflavors. Alcohol present. Well made doppelbock with a good flavor, but no specific characteristics that makes it a classic.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very sweet beginning but a very sour finish, like an overly ripe fruit juice with malt. I may have bought a bad bottle.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a nice malty base - rather sweet but with a slightly sour finish. Faint hints of smoke. Kind of unbalanced to me - the malts kind of collide. MY sample was a rather old bottle though, so I will re-rate if I can get a more recent product.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bright dark golden color with a light tan head. Nose is quite maltily sweet with hints of smoke and brown sugar. Body is very sweet with notes of brown sugar also carrying throough. Alcohol is present as well as what I like to call notes of haylage. Finishes slightly hoppy and sweet. Much too sweet, which made me glad that I had to share this 500 mL bottle with my buddy, now that doesn’t happen very often.
