3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
1.9 pt bottle. Fairly standard double bock beer. Not as sweet or thick as Celebrator or Paulanor yet very tasty without the cloyness as this type can be. Personally this seems more like an Aventinus, but that is just me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nearly black with a red tint. Has a great head that lasts till the bottom, great lacing all the way down too. Aroma dominated by malt notes such as toffee and caramel. Some slight dark fruits and something which resembles soy sauce on the nose too. The flavour is also dominated by dark malts and some fruits. There were only very slight hops notes in the finish but there was also some spice. Very rich and thick in the mouth. alcohol was detectable but pleasant.

Deep amber-rust brown colour. Moderate beige head. Delicious roasted malt nose with a little chocolate. Very balanced palate, not too sweet, making it enjoyable to the end. Could drink this all night! A terrific Father’s Day gift and a fine beer to start my rating history!

This is one of my new favorite doppelbocks. Pours a deep mahogany and leaves a nice lasting beige head. Aroma is slightly fruity but dominated by malts. Lots of munich, toasted, and chocolate malts in both the aroma and taste. Flavor is accompanied by a hint of hops in the end to give it a slight bitterness. Not cloying at all. Very easy to drink and not too syrupy like some doppelbocks.

Niced auroma, and a beautiful hue. Tasty beer with a nutty taste. Maybe I’m just the nutty one, I don’t know.
