3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Horehound candy color with ruby glints in the light. A huge caramel colored head forms and performs relatively well. A lot of caramel, some prune fruitiness, and quick notes of hard candy on the nose. Full body, light richness, and mild carbonation. A bit of a smoky quality interacts with the caramel and fruit for a bolder gestalt.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Out of bottle. Despite the bottle being a bit too cold, a very promising and pleasant aroma is there. Pours clear dark with small head. Taste is absolutely great, super-smooth, creamy. It is just so well balanced. My favorite double bock so far.
