3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.5l bottle. Amber body, off-white head. Lots of caramel in the aroma with grassy hops, toast and reisin. Taste is very similar to the aroma: mostly caramel, reisins and toast, but has some coffee and grassy hops too. Medium-full bodied, syrupy texture, low carbonation. Alcohol very well hidden. This is a really good doppelbock.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to blutt59 for always bringing the oddball German beers. Light brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is full of toffee with a hint of grass. The flavor is traditional doppelbock. I get a lot of toffee and caramel, as well as a bit of nut-like character, grass and dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Clear reddish dark copper colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty aroma, cautious grassy hoppy overtones. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty, some honey, treacle, dry hoppy counterweight. Slightly too sweet, lacks a spicy or roasty note.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Average one. Bit sweetish, big aroma of alcohol and a bit goat in. Just an ok one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear and deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Nose of malt. Taste of rich light malt, mild hops, ripe grains, strong alcohol and hay. Little bit dull and dusty hints. But I guess it is a good choice when you are fond of the Doppelbock-style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Una doppelbock classica, ricco l’aroma del malto, appare di un bel marrone brillante. Entrata dolciastra tipica del genere, con l’alcol che ben si percepisce senza però esagerare o strafare. Corpo medio/alto e carbonatazione più che moderata. Personalmente, assieme al malto caramellato sento un pizzico di nocciola che non dispiace. Finale anch’esso sul dolciastro, il luppolo arriva pochissimo ma è così che deve essere. Equilibrio e correttezza nell’interpretazione dello stile fanno di questa birra un ottimo prodotto. -- A classic doppelbock, rich aroma of malt, it is a beautiful shiny brown. Entrance sweet typical of the genre, with the alcohol well you feel without exaggerating or overdoing it. Body, medium / high carbonation and more than moderate. Personally, along with caramel malt feel a bit nutty not sorry. Finale also on the sweet, hops get very little but that’s how it should be. Balance and fairness in the interpretation of the style make this beer a great product.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light red-brown with a slight off-white head. Very nicely hidden alcohol and bit less malty and more bitter than similar Doppelbocks.
