0,5l bottle. Pours very dark red with beige head that doesn’t stick around too long. Aroma of raisin, fig and candy fruites is not very strong. Flavour is similar, raisins and dry fruit. High levels of alcohol are felt (brandy flavour). Short predominantly sweet and a bit dry aftertaste.

Aroma has a sweetness - hint of plum. Pours chocolate brown with a cream head. Teriffic lacing. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, slight chocolate. Creamy texture. This sets the bar for what I expect a dopplebock to be.

Great dopplebock. Sweet and malty without being too sweet. Really, really well balanced. Initial aroma is strongly banana as a wheat beer should. Two fingers of foam, which then suppresses the aroma. Plenty of flavours and mostly caramel but a variety of other tastes are present. Hard to find in Brisbane, but worth the hunt on a cold winter’s night. Perfect with any toffee flavoured desert like sticky date pudding.

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.

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.
