3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Notes from my backlog: Pours a golden with a white film of head. Softly sweet maltose doughy aroma. Light body with a fairly sweet flavor. Glazed doughy notes. It’s clean, but it could be drier.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle. Poured brighter golden with quite a bit of sediment and a short-lived, but sticky eggshell head. The aroma picked up very sweet toasted bread and honey notes with a hit of raw alcohol on the back of the nostrils.. some brighter, white spicy yeast if you dig deep. The flavor found the expected bread and light honey at the core, and picked up a soft complement of lighter-skinned fruit sugars.. toasted grains, fresh grass, and herbal bitterness around.. finished with toasted grains and some honey topped by a splash of warm black pepper. Medium-bodied with a spotty feel and flow through the palate (slick at times, sticky at others).. seemed a hair hot (compared to the ABV) and adjuncty.. overall an OK drinker.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet bread with some toffee. Flavor is almost like a rye bread with some caramel and burnt sugar. Finish does have a little soapyness. It’s a ok blonde dopple with a few things going for it just clean up that soapyness toward the end.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2011 this unassuming bottle contains the second best doppelbock around. Drinkable, but still thick. My favorite style is doppelbock and I have been to Germany for the Starkbierfest. This Austrian right on the Czech border. I can’t remember all the details but I marked it down as just below Celebrator.
