3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Medium brown body, surprisingly transparent for a doppelbock. Sweet and alcoholic in the nose, with some distracting metallic notes. Taste would be nicely balanced between butterscotch / sugarlike sweetness and intense, hoppy bitterness; but the alcohol is way too strong for this beer - suppresses the correct flavour escalation.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Edelweiss. Pours a dark mahogany color with a small grey head. A big malty nutty nose. The flavor is quite pleasant: rich toffee, caramel, coffee, light fruit, cake, a bit of chocolates. Very smooth. Nice. A lot like the powerful Samiclaus.
