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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and caramel. Little fruitiness as well. Dark to red colour with a small, lasting White head. Slightly transparent. Taste is sweet at first with lots of caramel and sugar, but gains a nice roasted accent. Also tones of liquorice and fruit in there. Alcohol sometimes peeks through in the taste. Aftertaste is roasted, slightly bitter but still with lots of caramel in it. It is however not as sticky as expected, considering the sweetness of the beer. Palate is nice and oily, just as it should be. Wonderful doppelbock, in short.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One pint, 0.9 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a dark copper wth a frothy pinpoint tan head that recedes quickly. Aroma: caramel, toast, fresh hazelnuts. Clean fermentation. Medium carbonation. Flavor: caramel, molasses, figs and dried plums. Alcohol warming. Grainy malt sweetness fades to a pleasing dry finish. Not heavy or cloying. Liquid bread; most satisfying.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is quite nice, figs, licorice, dark fruit, malt, caramel, more in your face than Celebrator. Appearance is dark dark brown, light brown head, too dark to see through. Taste is figs, caramel, roasted malt, toffee, then a weird wheat, dark fruit, good. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, weird wheat and dark fruit aftertaste. Overall, it’s real good but just a touch off point.
