3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours Deep Mahogony with an off-white head. Candied fruit aroma. It’s very sweet with sackloads of malty goodness and some plummy, raisiny elements. The alcohol makes its way to the front. A real dessert beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is medium to dark brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel/molasses, nuts/shells ,bread), with a note of brown sugar.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
A fair enough rendition but pretty generic and mild. Quiet aroma is just malt and sugars. Sweet in the mouth, and surprisingly modest in body. Pretty watery. Very difficult to get excited about it...doesn’t really do anything wrong, but seems kinda phoned-in.

Endlich mal etwas rosinenlastige Abwechslung, die mit einem gewissen Süße und nur wenig Alkohol im Aroma zu punkten weiß. Selten solch ein großes Böckchen gezischt. Toll.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark brown colour with low head and smooth body, Nose of intense malt. Taste of rich malt, dark nuts, torf, burnt caramel, medium bitter hops, ripe grains and brown bread. This beer is really easy and nice to drink and it doesn’t have that much of a Doppelbock-feeling (you don’t really taste the strong alcohol). Nice and solid Doppelbock.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma complesso, zuccherino, fruttato. Marroncina con un bel cappello di schiuma. Al palato ingresso dolce dominato dai malti, molto complessa ma elegantissima. Sentori di prugna, mou, e frutta secca. Chiude in maniera splendida con una leggerissima luppolatura. Calda, buona, equilibrata. Da bere a litri.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark reddish color, impenetrable with a long duration bubbly aspect. Optimal foamy head. Much complex and round nose; notes of roast malty, mighty alcoholic, caramel. Medium prickly taste, little overbanding alcoholic perception with a good bitternes final with notes of liqueur and hop.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Consisten level smooth quarter inch head on top of a very dark brown (with an orangy crystal sparkle) body. Dry nose, slightly carbonic to start that takes time to open. Could really do with more richness and dimension though considering what it promises. Another doppelbock with that hard tannic quality which imprisons all that sweet morish juiciness.
