3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a medium-sized, dark beige head. Aroma is malty, bready, dark bread, some syrup, molasses. Taste is fairly sweet again with maltbread of the dark variety and molasses. Rather one-sided though some dark fruit there too. Palate is quite full, somewhat carbonated. A bit too sweet.

Bottle. Dark brown with no head or carbonation. Rich, boozy, bready malts with some berry fruits and caramel. Easy drinking for the ABV, but sweetness dominates. Ok, but one dimensional.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours mahogny in color with a tan head. Dark bready maltyness, nuttyness and light notes of smoke in aroma. Nutty, dark died fruity sweetness and bready malty notes in taste. Feels full and rich and has even slightly vinous notes in aftertaste. Very smooth too. Excellent doppelbock.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle pours with a nice looking mahogany colored body that supports a light thin tan head. The aroma offers up caramel, earthy sweet dates and molasses as well as a bit of dry brownie mix. The taste starts with a moderate sweetness that’s sweet dark fruity ester like with dates and plums and then it gets into a mix of molasses, caramel malts and then a mild dark roasted maltiness and a dash of dark roasted coffee that really adds a pleasing layer to the experience. It ends molasses and date like with a lingering mild molasses and malty sensation. I like this.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery tap, pours a deep dark brown with a fine beige head, and aromas of toffee and faintly of lemon and apple. Rich and treacley palate with hints of coffee and gravy. Syrupy yet less sweet than the texture suggests, a very decent Doppelbock.

Klassischer Bock ohne Extras. Dick und malzig mit einigen muffigen Momenten. Trinkbar, manchmal wärmend - in Ordnung.
