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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Pours a caramel color with a light white head. The nose is boozy with a sharp sugary note and a touch of sweet marinated cherries. The flavor is sweeter still but not just sugar, it’s very specific, like drinking maraschino cherry juice or agave nectar. The light stuff has fermented out so all that’s left is the big heavy syrup at the bottom of the tank. Along with the high alcohol, the big sweetness and the vague fruit and lack of grainy notes, it doesn’t do much for me. I can look past this though and see this big giant maibock for what it is and find a sanctuary in the herbal and bready notes that you can pull together, but then again, it’s not my job to try, it’s theirs.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden color with an enormous creamy yellow-white head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet with notes of grape, bread and pepper. The flavor was tangy, yeasty and had faint notes of cinnamon, grape, nutmeg and table sugar and a strong alcohol presence. The finish was long tangy, sugary and a bit spicy with lingering alcohol that overwhelms everything else. Fairly full bodied. Too boozy to really enjoy.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle. 3.49$.
It pours a clear gold with a fizzy white head that leaves some nice lacing as it dissipates.
I love the smell of Helles Doppelbocks. This one smells like big loaf of sweet bread. There is some pretzel in there too along with a touch of earthy hops.
The flavor is rich and malty with again the fresh bread flavors, caramel, and a touch of alcohol. The hops are there too, providing a subtle bitterness to cut the sweet ever-so-slightly.
This is a fine brew.
