Brown/black with thin, silky beige head. Strong aroma of roasted malt with very potent taste of chocolate and some espresso bitterness. Nice dry, lingering aftertaste, and no hint of the higher ABV. Delicious!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Somewhat different Doppelbock (label just says "dunkles Starkbier") with light beige, creamy, delicate head and dark coppery chestnut colour with ruby hue, clear. Powerful and complex aroma with impressions of coffee grounds, sherry, peat, blueberries, plums, chocolate, leather, cinnamon and cloves but also some oxidation (apparently the bottle has had its best time). Sweetish onset with caramelly and honeyish malt character, rich, drying and become bitterish after the middle with peppery hops, roasted coffee-like bitterness, a somewhat cloying candi sweetness and warming, little bit astringent alcohol. I should probably purchase a younger sample to get a better view on this.
