3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Taniguchi served in a dimpled mug. It pours a deep reddish brown with a malty sweet aroma giving me plum notes. Medium bodied with a great mild malt character that gives a bitter nutty caramel flavor. A satisfyingly smooth brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One pint, 0.9 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, brown, nice abundant tan head, and nice lacing all over the glass. Aroma of bread, malts and some dark fruit. Taste is malty, lots of caramel notes, plum and some grassy notes. A lot more crispier than I expected. Very drinkable, very enjoyable, very good.

Bonito color caramelo oscuro con un dedo de espuma efervescente. Aroma a caramelo, café y ciruela. En boca, tono seco y amargo a café predominante, más el resto de matices del aroma. Buen cuerpo y efervescencia alta. Equilibrada y notable.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep black Amber color, a lot like a cola. Sweet malty aroma with maybe a little fruit. The taste comes on strong like a doppelbock should, but doesn't hang around to singe the tastebuds. It can't be overstated how smooth and palatable this beer is. One bottle in and this is already one of my favorites.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,5L Bottle bought in a random beershop in Berlin - Pours a dark, dark brown color with a mahogany head. Aroma has sweet malts, licorice, chocolate, candied brown sugar, dark fruits and spices. Flavor is quite good and well balanced. The flavor/palate is slightly dusty with flavors of dark roasty malts, bread, licorice, spicy sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. This was quite a nice experience, and i would definately recommend this to any lovers of doppelbocks!
