3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and mug served showing a clarified, darkest brown color, with ruby highlighting, a frothy layer of tan head froth, and foamy cling to the dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was malty and toasty, with dark fruit as prune, and caramel sweetness. A bit less than medium bodied, with somewhat low carbonation, the taste was similar to the nose, with less dark fruit exposure, low bitterness, and sweetness that seemed to build as it warmed. Classic, and fairly tasty Doppel, but would have appreciated more body, livelier carbonation, and maybe some dryness to the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle recived in the European swap thanks to SinH4. Pours dark brown with a meidum sized beige head with fine retention and lace. Nose has chalc, minerals, banana, sulphur. Flavour has sulphur, minerals, banana, light caramel, green plants, wood, light metallic notes. Medium/full body, oily texture, fine carbonation, medium sweet with low bitterness. Dry and light acidic finish with roasted malt. Not as rich and full as I hoped and the metallic thing bothers me.

Pours a clear dark brown with reddish hues. Head of foam is off white and shrinks to a ring around the glass.
Caramel and roasted malt in the nose. Deep whiffs reveal a fruity and perhaps a nutty character.
Caramel, chocolate, toffee, a slightly tart fruitiness comes to my taste buds. Working in unison to make for a smooth and delicious beer. I have no idea how fresh the bottle is but the taste and smoothness of the body has me hooked. Excellent.

One of the best beers I have had. Very complex taste and aromas, lovely dark brown color ... what’s not to like.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 50cl. Dark brown with a tiny off white head. Aroma of brown sugar and malts. Somehow it reminds me of wood too. The taste is mildly sweet and develops into a friendly bittersweet experience. Some tickling on the tongue from Co2.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Una doppelbock muy suave a pesar de su graduación y aspecto, hasta el menos cervecero apreciaría su sabor dulce y su cuerpo maltoso que no pasa indiferente.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown turbid apparently dense. Good crown cream and foam large amplitude but half expired, and the duration is leaving traces of lace on the glass in the first drinks. Predominate aromas of malt, caramel, toast and nuts such walnuts or hazelnuts. more hidden fruity notes are also appreciated. Pretty body and carbonation that fills the mouth completely. silky, powerful entry at the beginning, with malt flavor that fills the buds along with candy, all accompanied by hints of burnt sugar, nuts and even chocolate more subtly, ending with an aftertaste of character markedly dry, medium-length, leaving a refreshing mouthfeel, without actually be cloying. perceptible alcohol almost all the time, makes an appearance in perspective.
