3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle). Large off-white head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing. Clear amber-orange body. Dark caramel, toasted, toffee, medium-high malt sweetness, molasse as well as some light tones of fruits in my nose. In my mouth, medium-high to high malt sweetness first with toffee-like flavor. Later, medium-light sweetness and a light-medium bitterness. Medium body (a bit syrupy), soft to lively carbonation, light alcoholic feel toward the end.

Murky orange with soft beige head. Sweet currant and brown sugar nose. Dense dried fruit with some warming alcohol and bready flavours. Perfect winter sipper. The doppelbock benchmark for me.

330ml bottle into glass. Spicy fruit malt nose. Cloudy dark orange beer with small creamy head. Light spritzy mouthfeel with oily texture. Malt backbone gives way to dark fruits and alcohol. It’s like a good rich Christmas cake. Excellent beer, really delicious.

Copper/orange color, normal head. Aroma is fruity and also there is some kind of candy. Has a somewhat strange falvor, and I dont like this one the way many other seem to do.

Beer has a great aroma, nice amber/brown color with good head. Tastes heavy and, uh, stouty. Bitter finnish, probably won’t buy again.

Color rojizo anaranjado y espuma que desaparece al momento. Bastante densa pese a su aspecto. Aroma acaramelado, tostado. Sabor lupulado y bastante afrutado.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper with a medium-sized, quickly fading head. The aroma features rich maltiness with a toasty element: bread, nuts, a touch of dried fruits and caramel. Taste is light sweet and malt-driven, yet balanced. Dried fruits are slightly more noticeable than in the aroma; also bready, nutty notes prevail. Maltiness lingers into finish. Alcohol warms but does not burn or affect the taste. The palate is smooth and medium bodied with a low to moderate carbonation. Classic doppelbock, suitable for various situations.
