Had a draft of this one at Mars Cheese Castle. Black brown color. No aroma. Creamy German bock taste. Not my favorite but I don't like this style much either.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ML served into Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
A - Pours a dark russet copper with an active light tan head. Nice clarity.
S - Thick caramel malt, brown bread crust, iron, molasses, creamy marshmallow, prunes.
T - Roasted dark caramel malt, iron, molasses, vinous fruit-plums and grapes, nutty yeast, fresh ground brown bread, grainy bitterness toward the end.
M - Medium carbonation, syrup-like at times, dries off on the aftertaste.
A solid choice for a malty spring Dopplebock. This is widely available and priced right. Super malty and rough enough around the edges to keep it interesting.

800 yen for a bottle at the Grand Front Building’s Oktoberfest in Osaka. It poured a dark brown with a slight tan head. The aroma is malty sweet with hints of caramel. The taste is sweet, malty with biscuit & oat notes. A really easy drinking doppelbock which seemed better than average to me. It was also one of the cheapest beers available at the fest!

A quite tasty and unique brew. Pours a beautiful thick dark red with very little head. Smells of cherries and cream. Taste is a little different, a good amount of licorice. Heavier then it looks. Kind of like Negro Modelo if it was a porter.
