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!

Bottle. Pours brown with tan head, settles quickly with thin sheets of lacing. Aroma is malty, nutty, toffee, and plum, smells sweet. Flavor is malty, mildly roasted, nutty malt, caramel/toffee, with a fruity finish and a malty aftertaste that lingers. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. An enjoyable, drinkable, malty beer.

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.

significant roast chocolate smell. Dark color with clean filtration. Thin head. Hearty taste, strong. Smoke with long lasting palate. Was looking for a cheaper Celebrator, but it falls short.

Very dark brown pour with medium off white head. I didn’t pick up too much aroma other than a slight malt. Very smooth with excellent drinkability. This is my second dopplebock and im a big fan of this style already. I can taste an almost sour malty taste that’s perfectly balanced, rich & smooth. These dopplebocks go down like session beers with no indication of how high the ABV actually is.
