This gives doppelbock a bad name. The appearance was a lot lighter then i thought it would be. This beer has a world-renowned reputation, my ass.

I was really excited to try this stuff when I saw it. My excitment turned to disappointment when I tried it. It wasn’t near as dark or as good as I thought it would be. I feel like a real smuck for buying this shit, it wasn't even half as good as Leinenkugel Big Butt Doppelbock.

Nice fruity aroma and dark brown appearance. Lots of alcohol in the flavor, which is not something I’m a fan of with a fruity beer like this. Flavors of "just off" berries and apples, with some chocolate notes near the finish. Thick body. Not really to my taste, but it fits the style well.

Intersting aroma of malt and fruit. Superb balance between the fruit and alcohol flavors. Salvator is the pioneer of doppelbocks but better doppelbocks are available nowadays, like the awesome Celebrator.

In your face carbonation and over-the-top unique flavour. High alcohol and not that greatly masked but liked it. Need some food to not have to crawl away. Nice brown colour and bubbles. Aftertaste made it nicely drinkable. Chestnut chocolatley toasted malt.

Slightly sweet, very mild hop flavour with a hint of fruit, not a lot to write about but is very nicely made, malty, smooth palate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I have to say its one of the best doppelbocks I've had so far. A great reddish appearance with a darker thin head. Awesome flavor, hard to taste the alcohol. Something I'd like to try again.
