3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The 1st thing I will mention is that I’m not a doppelbock fan, they just tend to be too sweet for my liking, but I respect what should be good by the style. This to me is alright. Firstly, the aroma is full of everything from raisins, alcohol, sugary candy, roast, tobacco, and a licorice. In appearance it is a dark coppery color, not much head (typical). It’s flavors are pretty much a mirror of the aromas. It’s again sweeter than I’m comfortable with, but for the style it’s somewhat balanced. It’s astringent, sweet, and full flavored. Not things I’m into as a group collective. Not for me, but if you like doppelbocks, it’s perfectly acceptable.

Doppelbock autrichienne puissante comme il se doit dans sa catégorie. 9 mois de conservation. Trčs peu de mousse. Robe or-orangée. Bel équilibre entre alcool, amertume et sucre, qui vaut le détour. Longueur en bouche assez remarquable.

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 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.

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