A decent dopplebock, though it had a weird metallic twang to it at the end. Wouldn't get it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Dark brown. Clear. Next to no head. A nice off-white / light beige fine head at first, but falls down after a little while. Crisp nutty lager aroma. Hazelnuts. Milk chocolate and caramel. Chewy malt. Body is surprisingly light given the complexity of this beer. An excellent doppelbock.
Lively, fresh and very flavourful.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0,33 l bottle purchased @Fish & Beer, København. A brilliantly clear pour. Mahogny colored body. Low, fully fading tanned head. Alcohol-scented creamed dark caramel to the nose. A wee note of rum&raisin. Superslick mouthfeel, medium full. Sweet-flavored with a light harshness and noticable alcohol. Quite simple malt character; Light toasty, caramelly, sourish and peppery. A mild bitterness throughout. Not as hearty and malt driven as expected, and too much alcohol presence.
