22oz bottle in a stem glass. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of caramel and toffee/nutty malts, light notes of chocolate, and a little bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Decent but nothing really stands out.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. Bottle. Not much different than the regular version other than a bit more honey and caramel flavor with a touch of bubblegum. The low point was almost no head on a vigorous pour. Otherwise, solid on all accounts.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark mahogany pour under a tan head that coats the glass as it dissipates.
It has a light aroma of sweet malt.
there is more to the flavor than the aroma let on.Sweet malt, nice nutty sweetness, good full body too.
Worth trying if you like Doppelbocks.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice poor, not a ton of head, aroma lacking a bit, the first taste is absolutely delicious. Settling into the beer a bit, roasted coffee and caramel taste, a bit more carbination then your typical bock. Not necesarrily a winter beer, name is deceiving, but good when you are looking for a solid dark bock.
