2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle@Home. Called Dunkle but it was amber colored. In between Dunkle and Hell, that’s Bernstein I think. And I hate those beers as they can go both ways: Hell or Dunkle. I don’t like Helles Bock and sadly enough this one goes that way a lot. Sweet and apple like ESL. Positive thing for this one was the hop bitterness instead of the metallic bitterness some have.

Bottle from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours deep copper with a four finger beige head. Warm bready aromas. Medium body. Mild, foamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel, bready and somewhat spicey. Maybe a bit nutty. A light winter seasonal. Quite tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle best by 24.05.09, but just showed up at the local store: Pours a transparent copper orange with a stringy-lacing froth of white head. Has a sweet caramely nose with some doughy yeasty notes and a hint of light fruits. Starts with good fullness and authentic sweet dark caramely German malts with a mild fruity complexity and a touch of milk chocolate in the finish. An enjoyable and still very drinkable doppelbock, regardless of the date.

In the 0.5L bottle from the Huber Haus. Pours a dark amber with an off-white head. The aroma has some caramel toffee and bread-like scents. Taste is a solid medium maltiness with sweet caramel notes. Good, but not great. Cool label on the bottle though.
