2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright golden body with visible, hazy yeast, moderate carbonation, and a flat-fading soapy white head. Aroma of sweet honey, sweet pale wort, maple and apple notes, plus a touch of alcohol and a nutty, buttery element. Medium sweetness, less so than anticipated, with low bitterness and some gentle alcoholic warmth. Texture is like warm, watery syrup. Not my thing.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Possibly a bad bottle. Poured flat. To many floaters for my taste. It's a black non-see through bottle so I couldn't tell. Alcohol smell was a little overpowering.

No head to speak of. Faintly bitter, some citrus. Overall very weak, almost stale.

Not what I expected for the acl. content. I can’t really compare it with other Dopplebock brews, because I haven’t tried any. But I enjoyed this one so much, that I would gladly try another.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is sickly sweet honeyish malt. Color is gold/yellow with a rapidily diminishing head. Flat and honey sweet. I don’t know if this is gone bad or if it’s as intended. It doesn’t taste infected, but it doesn’t taste like much else either except for the honey tinged maltiness.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Vintage 1995 (best before) - 7.0%. Pours a brownish golden colour with a diminishing head. Aroma is oxydised. Sweet Madeira and notes of honey. Flavour is sweet with honey notes. Oxydised. Madeira again. Grassy notes as well. Finish is the same, but also has notes of alcohol. Overall an interesting try, but would like to try a fresh one. 26-09-09.
