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).

A Sim rate (Bottle from Plan B): Started this at Plan B and finished it on the streets of Copenhagen reluctantly rushing to catch the plane home. Smells of sherry, raisins and classic doppelbock malts. Colour is gorgeous amber brown with nice head and lace. The flavour is sherry, malt and liquorice. Lovely beer.
