3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml Bottle@Home (bought from Denmark) - 30/4/2011. Dark Brown appearance with small head. Aroma has caramelly maltness and some smoke. Taste also with caramelly maltness and a hint of alcohol. Palate is quite sweet and sticky. A bit too alcoholic and sweet for my taste. Quite nice still.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Foam is renewable and emits a wonderfully pleasant aroma of hard roasted malt with caramel and nuts. The taste is unsurpassed lovely with good malt sweetness, slightly roasted malt, a little fig and nuts. I have tasted many ’real German’ doppelbocks as not approaching this bock in fullness and enjoyment. Hop bitterness is the ease bitter fullness pulls aftertaste protracted without killing malt body and sweetness. It is crisp and has just the edge of sweet malt and bitter hops like a good doppelbocks need. Very well brewed and tasty.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very deep brown body with a red tint. The beige head is average in every respect: size, texture and lifetime. Rather strong but not too exciting aroma of roasted malt, coffee and dark dried fruits. It’s much more interesting on the palate: the strong flavour is dominated by dark dried fruits, roasted malt, coffee and some alcohol (hm, that sounds very similar to the aroma, but believe me, it’s nowhere near as mediocre!). Moderate sweet taste with a long-lasting moderate to light bitter finish. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. A fine doppelbock.
