4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep mahogany-russet colour with a white head that attempted valiantly to stay on top of the body of the beer. Significant allspice, carob, chocolate, caramel and date aromas. It is a full, dark and heady aroma that puts you in mind of pannatone, treacle tart or similar dessert cakes by a fire with a cigar to follow. The flavour is all of that with a lovely almost peppery note on a sweetish body. This beer is balanced, elegant and indulges the drinker with a fondness for dessert. In the lager world this has to be at the top end of its nobility. It struck me just where I like to be tickled and will willingly have more of this beer. Gorgeous.

Eggenberg’s doppelbock is a nice deep mahogany beer with foam that quickly falls to a flimsy layer. The aroma is somewhat weak and limited to light malt. The taste is initially easy alcoholic, then very malty richness with a vinous and warming aftertaste revealing weak hoppy trends. Light coffee notes can be tasted in the final. A distinctly sweet bock certainly is tasty and well-brewed.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
botte at home from trade with Saeglopur a while ago. dark brown / redish color, very small off-white head that dissolves quickly. smells malty sweet, liqueurish, some dried fruits, cherries, plums, smells a bit like cherry lemonade, some citric notes. full body, medium carbonation, bubbly on the throat, rather slick and oily mouthfeel. tastes malty sweet, some dried fruits, plums, a bit citric, quite a lot of dry hop bitterness after a while, makes it a bit medical for me. bitter / sweet finish. this one is just decent, i was expecting a bit more, the bitter-sweet / medical notes turn me off a bit, this one might benefit from some aging.

Very nice dunkel, if a bit too mellow. However, the malt character of this beer is very good.

March madness 2015. The beer has essentially no aroma. The texture is nice but not too sweet. I think the beer lacks the fancy noble hops notes I expected. Slightly disappointing.
