3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brilliant golden colour, transparent, with a shortlasting white head. Looks like an industrial lager. Aroma to molasses, nuts, caramel and raw grain. Taste to biscuit, caramel, alcohol and some nuts. Very full, strong and a little bit sticky. It reminds me of a light version of EKU 28. Good, but not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber pour with a white head. Dried fruit and spices on the nose. Relatively light mouth feel for a doppelbock and overall doesn’t have as much malty sweetness that I like in doppelbocks. Just seems like it’s missing something.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle into snifter glass. Pours clear deep golden with a thin short lasting white head. Aroma is honey sweet malts with traces of bitter blood oranges and a dry muskinness. Palate is smooth and cognac-like with alcohol to the fore and sweet malt favours and a low carbonation. Rich and full bodied. Best to handle with care.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
caramel, grass, hay, alcohol, golden, clear, minimal head, white foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, umami, medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, bitter, long finish
Pour is golden with minimal white foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is sweet with grass and hay and a slight alcohol. Taste is a rich toffee that slowly blends into a bittersweetness. Bitterness persists. A medium body with an almost chewy consistency. Mouthfeel is creamy then turns a bit dry with some alcohol on the tongue. Very minimal carbonation. The 9.6 ABV is well balanced, and will sneak up on you. Excellent sipping beer.
