3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is clear gold, a sort of maple leaf turned early. Bottle hissed with minor carbonation and indeed bubbles are few but steady, leading only to a thin white halo around the top of the glass.
The smell is of alcohol, malt, and sweet iced tea with mint.
Mouth-feel is dense, like caramel syrup. But the carbonation regains life on the tongue, forcing any excessive sweetness away from the tongue and bringing forth a mellow bitterness. This is a complex taste that lingers and coats the back of the throat, warming yourself as it flows down. Internally this is a lively beverage that awakens the intestines, perhaps best suitable as a digestive following a heavy, fall meal. Me thinks it would serve well after dark meat, like lamb or veal. As the temperature drops the malty sweetness becomes more dominant; notice the sugar coat on the lips. Served in a Samichlaus tulip.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ovaj Dopplebock ima čak 9.6% alk. Austrijsko pivo, iskreno nemam pojma odokud mi. Naoko izgleda kao obično pivo, zlatno žute boje, malo zamućeno. U mirisu ima voćne note. Okusom se dosta osjeti ta jačina alkohola, ali ga slatkoća piva brzo zamaskira. Dosta je pitak s obzirom na toliki postotak alkohola.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange bis kupferfarben fast klar mit wenig beständigem weißem Schaum. Süßlich malzig, spürbar alkoholisch. Aromen von Karamell, Honig, Marzipan. Leicht bitter. Interessantes helles Doppelbock, aber das Samichlaus ist eine Klasse besser.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the best Austrian beer i’ve tried. It’s a doppelbock beer; however its palate is lighter as expected. Roasted malt and brown sugar caramel notes compensated by the hops.

Sweet honey aroma. Gold appearance. The head is not staying a lot. Honey strong taste. This could be a honey beer. But very nice body and palate.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy, little more orange than pale yellow. Strong taste with a high ABV. I didn’t find the 9.6% to be as overwhelming as other higher ABV beers, but this isn’t that good and I took my time at it. It was a good beer to sample, but not make a staple.
