A clear amber beer with a nice off white head. Aroma is nutty, caramel and touches of vanilla. Flavour is nicely malty with a wonderful mouthfeel. This is a full bodied Dopplebock with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. Quite drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled August 28, 2013 (1.5 months old).
Appearance: The body is perfectly clear with big ruby body. The head is tall, dense and persistent, slowly settling into a dense tan coating.
Aroma: The aroma is huge on malts with a complexity that’s hard to pick out, but I mostly get brown sugar and caramel, among a nondescript sweet maltiness. The aroma isn’t all malt though, there’s a lot of fruitiness hinting at apples. The aroma is lovely.
Taste: Oh boy this is a big beer and it shows it instantly. Big caramel, toffee and brown sugar throughout with an underlying red apple during the mid-taste that succumbs to a brown sugar finish that lingers for a moment. Great beer.
Palate: Full bodied with enough carbonation to keep this lively and break up the big maltiness.
Overall: This is a beer deserving of a gold medal, this is almost exactly what I look for in a bock. Good amount of alcohol, big malt flavor, underlying fruitiness and great drinkability. This is an excellent beer.

Flaske: Ravfarvet klar øl med et cremet skumhoved. Duften er ekstrem maltet med en smule tørret frugt. Smagen er meget sød, næsten for meget, men en fin bitterhed gør øllen meget drikbar.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a clear amber beer with a medium sized off white head on top. Aroma is nutty, big caramel and touches of vanilla. Flavour is very sweet and has influenced of your typical doppelbock, but it has an American twist too it. Very easy drinkable and quite refreshing as wel.

Dark amber frothy head. Smells of malt and alcohol and bread. I didn’t like the taste that much, Carmel, malts bitterness and alcohol. It did get better as it warmed up, perhaps I drank it too cold. I would like to try other Double Bocks, perhaps I don’t like the style.
