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!

Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, full bodied with a smooth mouthfeel.

Bottled, TNX to DH8VV! Color is warm doppelbock brown with thick creamy head. Nose has dried plums, figs and caramel. Aroma has also plums and figs. Very softly sweet, full body, Malts give some bitterness. could use somewhat stronger bitter finish. Excellent!

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2008
A nice, full-bodied beer. Good head. The only detracting thing is the somewhat metallic aftertaste.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2008
500ml bottle from Utobeer. Beautiful ruby colour with thick beige head. Good syrupy malty aroma. I liked this, ok not enormously complex, but I like the up front straight forwardness of the syrupy malts, it looks fantastic. Yes it has some lager yeast/malt flavour, but as the bottle goes down, it’s great. Very drinkable. Some syrupy sweet malt on swallow.
