4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours rich dark brown with a slight amber Hugh and supports a small, but lasting tan head.
The aroma is decidedly malty with hints of chocolate caramel, and roasted coffee. The flavor is a clean, intense maltiness that lingers and fades into a very nice toasty, malty aftertaste. This is a cold weather brew with a 7.4% abv that would be a good choice for a brew to enjoy with sizzling, broiled steak!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. pours fairly dark brown, borderline black, tan head. Aroma is vanilla, fig (very figgy), toffee, dark fruit, I’d call it prune. Flavor is wow, fig, toffee, prune, sugar. Really nice. I haven’t had this one in a while, and honestly, I’m happy to revisit it. Really good doppelbock.

Nagy, tömör, bézs, tartós hab, sötétbarna szín. Édeskés, karamelles illat. Íze édes, karamelles, enyhe keserűvel és mérsékelt szénsavassággal. Testes, jól összerakott, finom sör.

Bottle. Thanks Davido. Nice Belgian almost aroma, nice maltiness, chocolate cocoa, ovaltine. Taste is more fruity, smooth, brown and rich. Wheaty. Definitive Dubbel character. (what on earth was that supposed to mean?)

Bottle shared. Thanks Davido! To steal Neil’s words "like a Westmalle dubbel" on the nose and palate really. Slight Belgian yeast notes and cookie malts. Light chocolate. The Belgian character about it adds something a little more to it than most doppelbocks. Very enjoyable.

Delicious dopplebock that pours to an impressive tan head, releasing a full aroma of plums, caramel, freshly turned earth and alcohol. Finish is both dry and sweet and fruity. Another great beer from an excellent brewery.
