3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice aroma of rich malt, complimented with fruity hops and perhaps a touch of sherry. Clear, very dark garnet with a ring of off-white foam. The flavour is all that the aroma indicated: potent and a bit spicy malt with a healthy dose of German hops. Bitterness is gentle, yet sufficient to balance the residual sweetness. A bit of ethanol apparent. Dried fruits as well as some nuttiness. Medium to full body and warming. The sweetness is not cloying at all in this beer.

Deep dark amber colored, venishing yellow head. Nice doppelbock-aroma with chocolate, licorice and nutty-caramel, sweet aroma indeed. Medium bodied. Flavor is also sweet with nuts dominating, sweetness still in aftertaste with caramel and mild hops. Surprisingly thin bodied for 7.4% ABV.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On our way to Ingolstadt we took a short side trip to visit the Benedektinerkloster of Scheyern. On a sunny and warm early afternoon we had a very nice time sampling most of their beers (and some food) in the worderful beergarten of Klosterstub´n Scheyern.
First came the 500ml bockbier with the name Kiliator vom fass. Nice in appearance with its deep copper brown colour over a light brownish foam, mostly diminishing. Sweet aroma of dark malts and spicies. Taste of dark fruits and berries wrapped up in a delicious dark chocolate package. More spicy notes towards the finish. Slightly bittersweet aftertaste. Well bodied. Some days later I also had a 500ml bottle called doppelbock Dunkel. It seems to be the same beer, though this one had 7.4% alcohol (Scheyern and Irgetsheim 20.06 and 23.06.2007).
