An amber beer with a thin light orange head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of caramel, but then notes of metal and alcohol hits the tongue. OK, but quite simple.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
extremely similar to Salvator on appearance. Very thick and firm head. Very aromatic, strong caramel, fruits and malt. Raisins, maybe a hint of roast and coffee also. Taste is thick! Very sweet and hard, very very malty. This is a crafty and complex brew, which I´m unsure what to make of.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Amber pour with a thick and explosive eggshell head (which quickly reduced to nothing). Big, strong nose: sweet, alcoholic, fruity (grapish) malt. Darn, could get drunk just from smelling the thing. Taste: sweet, alcoholic, disappointing after such a good sniff. Warming. Not a very flavorful Doppelbock. Still, good sipper for a cold night, or just to wind down after a long day.

bottled. aroma of honey on raisin toast. quite curious, a little vanilla and strawberry jam flavour, well-balanced, quite pale for a doppelbock without a lot of dark malt flavours but tasted as though it was 6 months old or so and had mellowed and left a nice warming sensation in the gut
