Amber colour with a slightly off-white head which fades quickly. Sweet on the nose with caramel, nuts and different kinds of fruits. The taste is sweet with nuts, caramel and a big load of burned malts. Medium bodied with a slightly dry finish. Not very pleasant.

I must admit that this is a very boring bock! It does not remind me of the good german bock beers. I guess the germans are better at the bocks.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy body, golden-orange in color, and topped by a nice off-white head. Fruity nose, some caramel. A bit weak maybe, but pleasant. Full-bodied with a touch of warming alcohol. The commercial description mentiones nuts, I don’t think I would have sensed without reading it, but it’s there. Malty sweetness and some caramel too. Sweet, caramel finish. A decent doppelbock, but it’s a bit weak in both aroma and flavor, definately not competing with the best German species. 100618
