1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a clear, pale gold, with a small white head.
Worty malt aroma.
Rather crude, alco-sweet, malt liquor-like flavor. Malty, alco-sweet aftertaste definitely overstays its welcome. Metallic.
Mild carbonation, medium body, clean mouthfeel.
Eugh, no thanks.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Deep yellow with very small head. Aroma hay, sweet malts sugar, a bit cloying. Taste sweet malty, lots of alcohol, a bit cloying. A classical dobbelbock, but nothing extraordinary.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours golden with a pillow head. It is very clear. There is no lacing to speak of. The aroma is of toffee, honey, caramel, and oats. It has a creamy texture to it. There is a taste of honey, hops, and caramel with a definite alcohol finish.

Third or fourth beer on my Austrian trip that has had a metallic aroma upon the initial poor, this one fading with the beer warming slightly. Sweet aroma after this. Pretty beer to look at, little lacing/head retention. Honey taste is strong at first, nice vanilla notes as well. There is a little unwanted skunky and metallic taste that interferes with a lot of other good stuff that is going on! Long spicy tobacco-tasting finish.

Bottle in a field in the Czech Republic. Clear deep golden pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity malts, grapes, plum, slightly spicy, sugary and with some alcohol. Flavor is very sweet, sugary and fruity with a full body and a smooth texture. Solid brew.

Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel/toffee malts, honey, citrus, fruit, some earthy notes. Decent, probably won’t revisit this though.

Bottle, pours gold with a white head, has a sweet malt and honey aroma, taste is similar but with a little caramel and a noticeable alcohol kick, taste pretty much stays sweet, with very little bitterness, not bad

Mint egy jó öreg viszki, megbarikkolva az igaz. Testes és selymes, nameg aztán negédes.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Buckeyeboy brought this back from Austria... I am sure I have had it before, but am surprised to see no rating.... soooo, here it is.
Pours a clear orange... no real lacing... nose is fruity malt extract, not nearly as clean as most doppelbocks.. sweet and very boozy.
Flavor mirrors the aroma... sweet with something that reminds me of apricot.. cloying malt with no balance at all... one dimensional and not even remotely to my doppelbock liking anymore.
Body is surprisingly not that thick, but the carbonation is lighter than it should be leading to a sorta clinging mouthfeel.
Thanks Jeremy, but I remember this one being better.
