4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy, hazy brown. Very unfiltered appearance. Aroma of nothing but malt. Anyone who is scared of beer because it is bitter will be scared of this because it smellls so sweet. Flavors of dark dried fruit, malt, molasses, Mostly roasted malt flavors in the finish. Very balanced texture. Rich and Malty. Very full bodied!

Pours dark and cloudy with a thick tan head and some lacing. Sweet malty brew with more dark fruitiness than other doppelbocks. A bit light and bubbly for such a brew, but it doesn’t really hurt this one. Could be paired with some good fish.

Hazy mahogany with a large head. Head retention was low. Aroma of caramel, roasted nuts, dark fruits and bread. Raisins and toffee is the taste. Medium to heavy body. Slightly syrupy texture. Sweet finish. Pleasantly surprising.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9oz. bottle. Rich, sweet, fresh caramel aroma. Can’t really see the color ’cause I poured into a ceramic stein(maybe darkish caramellish reddish brown?). Nice full, bubbly, tan head, with some fairly quickly dissipating lacing. Tastes sweet and malty, as expected, with some sugary dark fruit notes. Medium body. This is not one of my favorite styles, but I think this is pretty well done. Has an unexpectedly light and lively carbonation that I find enjoyable. Me thinks would probably be enhanced paired with some good, gamey meats. Arrrgghh!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (many thanks to Kölschtrinker !): Very dark amber coloured, small foamy off-white layer; distinctive malty-fruity (dried fruit) nose with a tinge of burnt malt and coffee; robust bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied; sweet-fruity finish, mixed a bit with sugary molasses, followed by some almost tart bitterness in the aftertaste. A decent Doppelbock, well balanced.......
