3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear and very pretty mahogany colourtoppd by a small off-white head that clearly persists. Alcohol tinted nose offers expressive earth laden huge munich maltiness. Toasted, sugary notes completely overwhelm the neglectable bitterness in mouth. Emerging flavours of candied pear, red licorice and caramelized apples all make it an offering a bit too sweet for my liking, but its medium body that feels very lager-like and quite drinkable helps to settle that in place. A sweet one, but well structured and easy to like. Pretty good doppelbock.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (thanks Jonas!), Munich (BB Apr 07).
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted bread, nuts), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of plum and overripe banana.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Despite being many months past the BB date, this was still in remarkably good condition and didn’t show much if any evidence of its age. Not a strong contender, but a solid enough example.
