3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Deep amber coloured, thin, but lacing, stable off-white head; complex aroma: fruit (raisins, almost port-wine), molasses and sweet dark malt; light sweetish, but mainly dry (chocolatey-)bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; toasted sweet-malt and dry chocolatey bitterness in the finish. Tastes like a tamed Doppelbock, an extremely flavoursome beer !!!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Impressions from the dining room:
-Chocolate and caramel are linked by roastiness.
-The low carbonation renders a heavy, silky body.
-The foam disappears completely into the gleaming dark brown gown.
-Finishes with appreciable roasty bitterness, laced in important sweetness.
On tap at Eulenspiegel, Bamberg.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty aroma with milk chocolate and a hint of coffee. Thin, but with a firm roast character. Chocolate and raisin in the flavor. With a thicker mouthfeel, this would be a great beer.
