2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle at Reading BF 08. Very deep brown red with thin beige head. Aroma of some red fruits/raisins. Fruit and malt is a little syrupy. Bit sweetish as a doppelbock and not a lot of depth. Not one of the better doppelbocks I’ve had. It’s alright, but no great character.

Bottle, danke Günther! Chestnut, creamy golden head. Toasty, nutty, some sweet dates, all to a lesser degree in the aroma. Dry herbal and roasted finish. Plenty of chewyness, medium to light sparkly body. A bit sugary sticky sweetness follows you to the door.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Clear, deep amber coloured with copper sparks, small, but quite stable off-white head, lazy carbonation, quite shy sweet-caramelly nose with traces of coffee, roasted malt and barnyard; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; moderate, relatively dry roast-malty finish with an increasing bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite "slim" Doppelbock, but very well balanced and pleasant...........

traditionally doppelbock was made for the lent of the monks. no idea how 7 % get int an emty belly but i think the monks were used to it... starts quite unsweet for a doppelbock. malts and hops at the beginning. more hops in the middle. ends up quite hopsy without losing the sweet touch.
