3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, ruby to brown body, topped by a minimal beige head. Dried fruits, caramel, some coffee, a little alcohol and hops, and a faint note of cellar and oxidation in the aroma. The flavor also has dried fruits up front, then a little oxidation shows up, along with caramel and roasted malt, some hops and a touch of coffee. Full-bodied and sweetish, slightly warming. Sweet, roasted finish. A pleasant one, the oxidation is pleasant, and it’s pleasantly warming. (090228)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The bottle looks good, but a bit simple for a doppelbock. The beer in the glass is zippy, but no foam. Tastes malty, but not too much, a bit roasty. A bit sweet like chocolate, the finish is drier. Not bad!
