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

Pours a nice amber with a quickly fading medium head. Not usually a fan of doppelbocks, but this has changed my opinion. Has a bit more going on than your average American doppel. The balance of malts and sweetness was refreshing. Aroma was rather weak but a nice smoky malt.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown colour opaque and super malty smell. Chewy palate, sweet, big caramel, a hit of warming alcohol at the end, drinks like a meal.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2016 Bottle 330ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a clear copper with a red tint. Head is off-white, averaged sized and lasts well in the glass. Aroma is of lightly cooked brown sugar, dark plums (ripe), dried cranberries, toasted brown bread, chocolate, caramel and a pinch of cinnamon. Flavour is exceptionally smooth (especially considering the ABV) with a light bitterness, lightly toasted malts, wholegrain bread, caramel, brown sugar, raisins, tea leaves, a touch of chocolate and a (white) peppery finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and a good length, warming finish. An amazing Doppelbock in every sense – not to mention suburb value for money!

Looks about coppery brown with no head coming up. Strong malty flavors and a recognizable alcohol bite to sum things up. Pretty weak in the middle, a little unwanted watery hole there. Starts off with a good malty base with bready notes and honey. Finishes with warm alcohol to draw the line. Decent doppelbock.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I bought the bottle just because I was out of bock beer and I liked the label. Glad i did! Color is a slightly hazy amber an i has a big creamy head. A bit of lacing. Aroma of bread, caramel and maybe citrus peel? Taste is sweet with notes of burned malt, dark chocolate, bread and caramel. Finish is a little bitter. Just enough to invite another sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper with a small white head that disappears a little too quickly and leave low lacing. Nose is of caramel, bread and alcohol. Taste is only lightly sweet and features less caramel than the nose would indicate. Alcohol is still present and a bit disturbing, taking too much place in the flavor profile. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. Alright but I had higher hopes for it.
