2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, I think from Euro Swap 1/2015 thanks to Sebilinz. Clear golden color with a slight touch of orange and amber in it as well, medium sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, malt sweetness, slightly wort, grainy. Taste malts, sweet, alcohol and malty sweetness, again grainy. Slightly sticky texture, average body, average carbonation. I don’t really like it, it’s too malty, too sweet and too alcoholic.

0,33 l bottle. Golden color with white foam. Powerfull aroma of malts: honey, candied fruits, porto or eiswein, noble hop. Sharp taste, notably alcohol, cruelly warming, malty sweetness, fruits, raisins, low carbonation, alcohol and hop bitterness in finish. Ordung!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours a full golden color with a very small and quickly vanishing white foam. Aroma of alcohol mainly, then mature fruit, prune, some bread, raisins, candy fruit, liquor-like. Sweet and heavy-bodied, low carbonation. It doesn’t remind me a doppelbock at all, rather a kind of low fermentation barley wine. Not bad, not good, just in the middle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle from Vienna. A very good example of doppelbock. What is important that it is malty and goes down easily. You enjoy it, and it does not torture you.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First try from Austria. The aroma is soft, the after taste got punch as it is a double bock. I prefer Austrian chocolate better!

Aroma fantástico. Gosto forte e cremoso. Faz juz a descrição que diz lúpulos nobres. Gosto duradouro na boca. Amargor do lúpulo e amargor do alto teor alcoólico bem perceptíveis. Forte e gostosa!
