4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, BB 20-02-14, large sample. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruit, hint of mocha, dark chocolate. Medium bitter in taste, touch of biscuity sweetness. Wow, I was not expecting this. Lots of roasted malts almost turning this into a stout. Full bodied. Quite fruity finish. As I had no expectations, I was pleasantly surprised.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml Bottle (shared)
Allmost black beer with a frothy tan head.
Aroma: caramel malts,roasted malts yeast and something close to black olives in the background.
Taste: starts with quite roasted malts then goes over in a more fruity hoppy tones, before it finished with caramelised and much more roasted malts and a hint of coffee.
Slightly Sticky Texture, Medium carbonation and body
Not really a Doppelbock something of a hybrid of bock and a Stout, but quite nice in it’s own way.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a frothy tan head. The aroma is creamy caramel malt and yeast. The flavour is medium to strong bitter. Medium to full bodied, lively carbonation and a creamy texture with a bitter sweet, spicy hop palate. Very drinkable, but could probably use less bubbles.
