3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours mahogany brown thick creamy off white head that stays
Aroma is sweet malty scent with slight hop smell in there
First sip is sweet malty: caramel and toffee notes a bit saltiness and a bit fruit like.
Very good beer. Don’t taste the alcohol much
Aftertaste is like caramel apple. Caramel fruit esters.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours clear caramel with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of caramel, brown sugar and nutty malts, along with a touch of herbal hops. The flavour is moderately sweet with nutty malts, brown sugar and caramel, along with touches of apple, herbs and spice. The finish is long and malty with hops and a slight pepper. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent Doppelbock, with nice balance and nutty malts. 2013-05-04

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Toffee, raisin, toasted malts and rum. Clear but dark amber with a thin brown head. Boozy toffee, some dark fruit and alcohol burn. Finish has a bit of bitterness and is quite dry. Not very well balanced in my opinion and too much booze.
