Bottle shared with McTapps. Hopes were low after the last Bock disapoointments but a nice surprise hit our road. Malty, bit fruity, some coffee in the aroma. Delicious in a special way with a full body. Recommandable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep ruby colour with first steady, then very low head and medium body. Nose of malt. Taste of strong alcohol but that is also quite fresh and ligth on the other side. Hints of roast, malt, nuts, licorice and butterscotch. It is definately a very Porter-like Doppelbock, because there are slight torf and coffee hints as well. Easy to drink, quaffable.
