3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Creamy and adherent head, optimal resistance and good volume. Dark red color with swarthy glares ; limpid, fraught and with a good fizz enough. Alcoholic and dry scent with notes of malt, must and filled with smoked wood. Medium prickly and round taste. Determined but not excessive bitter, overbearing and extended alcohol on the end.

Bottled. An amber beer with a fast disappearing beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel, and lesser notes of alcohol. The flavor is very sweet malty with light notes of alcohol, leading to a rather bitter end. It has a good body.

bottle, traded with pivnizub. Deep dark brwon colour, medium-sized head. Malty nose. Intensive flavours of roasetd malt, hints of caramel and malt, a shy touch of berries and dried fruit. Not too sweet, well-balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Sweetish and easily tasty dark brown beer. Nose is sweet toffee-chocolate malts with a berry note. Pretty sweet flavor but stopping just short of cloying, with only a light bitterness to check it. A bit viscous and sticky. Sweet malty aftertaste. More enjoyable with some salty food. A bit of a guilty pleasure here.

Nice looker, as a doppelbock should be. It is sweet and potent, for the lower abv relatively it is pretty alcoholic. It is one o this brewery’s better beers however.

(Best before date 5 days prior tasting):
Tinny caramel and fruity soy sweetness are tickled by an alcoholic feather. Wild rice graininess and black pepper spiciness roam with the milky wanderer.
Caramel and roastiness are both competent, perhaps benefiting from the low carbonation to expose their strengths. Sweetness remains simple though in the round mouthfeel, and fades into a whisper of an aftertaste. That vegetal/wild rice nature echoes in the back as well.
A broth boils nearby and calls the nostrils to lunch.
