3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 650mL bottle. Clear, auburn brown with beige head. Subtle bitterness and sweetness leads to a complex, but lacking in a good balance. Seems it doesn’t quite know what it wants to be. I like it, but it’s missing something I can’t quite put my finger on. Some caramel, nuts, and resin.

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
