Good God, Pauliner rocks. This is their finest. A very nice rich beer that is surprisingly easy drinking.

Dark brown. Densely malty, oaky and thick. Syrupy, sweet finish with quite a lot of bitterness.

Really enjoyed this one... has a nice sweet taste and is very smooth. My first dopplebock, I think I will really like this style of beer. Reccomended.

Another good beer from Paulaner. I typically prefer the darker doppel bock but this one was very good. Quite a noticeable alcohol presence even in the aroma.

Nice deep red with small beige head. Smells of toasted and caramel malts. No alcohol in aroma or taste. Smooth and easy to drink for such a strong beer. Im concerned about the label however- says ale on the top right hand corner- whats the deal? Whatever-very good for a doppelbock.

Being the first does not make it the best. Paulaner is a mediocre brewery as far as I am concerned. This beer is just this side of boring.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2010 Rererate at the Starkbierfest on the Nockherberg. Fresh from tab this classic displays all the fruity, berrylike and spicy notes it is known for, beautifull! Re-rate: Dark red in color and with a malty aroma. Moderate carbonation end a light vinous taste. Aftertaste is pretty neutral.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brilliantly clear, light amber color (actually lighter in color tan I remember). Lasting rocky light tan head. Aromas of malt, toffee malt and caramel malt - outstanding aroma - coming from a recovering hophead. Smooth as it floats over the tongue. Sweet malt flavors everywhere. Also light flavors of currants and chocolate. Finishs relatively dry with a slight EToH kick. A relatively mild doppel, but very clean and refreshing.
