1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled@PBF2012. Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is cardboard, alcohol, grass, grains and some mild herbs. Flavour is rather similar. Thin palate and quite harsh. A very cheapo product feel to this. More a malt liquor than a doppelbock.

Strangely, it has a blond color. Some aroma and flavor of cereals. Not exciting, not too bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a yellow colour with a small but thick white head. Aroma of orange, honey and glue-like solvent. Flavour of sweet malts, orange, strong grassy hops and alcohol. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter, dry, grassy finish with alcohol. I’d say this is more of an Imperial Pils rather than a Doppelbock.

50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 14.08.2012 16:36
Rather pale appearance for a doppelbock. Aroma is sweetish and rather strong on butter. Also some honey and hints of grassy hops – feels actually like a strong pils. Flavour is rather strong on grassy hops, some butter and grainy malt. Not very bock‐like, an imperial pils, I’d say. But a good one, the grassy hops are really nice here.
