4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Any time I can get my hands on something referred to as "liquid bread", with a ABV of 7.90%, I’m going to be happy...
This dopplebock poured into my large tulip glass with a rich amber color. The glass I used allowed for a great, light tan, rich foamy head. It stayed around for enough time to really aid the great nose of malt and lingering streaks of toffee. Had a wonderful heavy malt taste, with slight bits of toffee, and fresh wheat bread with honey. This beer, for being so substantial, really had a very drinkable, medium bodied mouth feel. This beer is pairing great with my aged white cheddar, but don’t rule out the schnitzel. Never rule out the schnitzel. I’ll leave the fasting to the Monks...Enjoy

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from the supermarket. I heard that the tap version is quite different. This one is ridiculously sweet. After a strong taste aroma experience (that is hard to describe... the sweetness overtakes it all) a long finish with some bitter pepper and smoke notes follow. Also some booze. The whole combination seems very one dimensional and didn’t please me so much.
However I look forward to trying this from the tap again...

Some alcohol present with a slight peppery note. APPEARANCE: medium to dark ambar color and clear. medium-low beige head, creamy, with low retention. TASTE: predominant flavor of bread crust (Maillard), toasty malt and a faint caramel-like note. low bitterness with an almost dry finish. no hop flavour discernible. PALATE: medium to medium-full body with a slight velvey texture. moderate carbonation. faint alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a good and traditional Doppelbock well within the style. Does not exhibit optional notes as dark fruits among others.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clean dark amber color with small off-white head. Smell is sweet and very pleasant; toffee, caramel, herbs.
Full body with medium carbonation. Thick texture. Bittersweet and somewhat boozy taste. Aroma of sweet malts, toffee, caramel, herbs, flowers, cinnamon. Aftertaste is mostly boozy and combines the sweetness of malts and caramel with burning sensation of alcohol. Very rich and nicely balanced.
Overall, great doppelbock. Recommended.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle, served in Lagar glass. Pours amber/brown with small white head. Aroma is based on sweet malts, very caramel-ish and licorice forward. Strong licorice taste along with caramel and hints of fruits. Quite sweet on the palate as usual in this kind of beers. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bem avermelhada, pouca espuma, aromas intensos de torrado e doce com pão bem marcado. Cerveja de alto corpo, FG e maltês torrados bem perceptíveis. Álcool muito bem inserido e atenuado ao paladar frente aos 7,8%, sensação de cerveja "nutritiva" (verdadeiro pão líquido). Amargor balanceado,inclusive no retrogosto.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille de 50cl. Couleur rousse, mousse abondante mais de tenue assez faible. Des arômes très caramélisés qui débouchent sur un mélange d’ herbes aromatiques( à la Jägermeister ). La carbonnation est un peu tristounette, çà doit être plus sympa à la pompe. Trouvé à V’nB’ - Noyelle Godault.

Brown with tan head. Aroma sweet malt and caramel. Medium full body, minimal alcohol. Pleasantly sweet and sticky up front, malty, brown sugar, finishes on the drier side. I am a fan of doppelbocks and this a solid one.
