3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark mahogany and a rather excessive and frothy head. Sweet and malty aroma with just a hint of nuttiness. The flavor is forcefully malty with some notes of sweetness... candy or caramel like. The finish is cloying and almost salty, but this is a good beer.

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.

500ml bottle. Have only recently tried beer from this brewery and am glad I have. This has to rank right up there with Celebrator. Only I detected a hint of cocoa, which was nice. This is a fine doppelbock which I’ll be buying again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a 19oz. pilsner glass. Great dark fruit and sugary malt aroma, good looking dopplebock brown. Produced a good but rapidly disappearing head. This is a smooth, robust, well balanced and easy drinking dopplebock. Lightly carbonated and a bit on the sweet side. Chocolaty, full bodied and creamy, it almost tastes like there is no alcohol at all included. Very good example of the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2016 Bottle 500ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a deep dark ruby with a tanned, dense, frothy had that was mostly lasting. Aroma is of dusty milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, oats, wholemeal bread, blueberries with light earthy/spice notes in the background. Flavour is sweet and amazingly smooth with an extremely light bitterness, chocolate malt balls (Whoppers), chewy caramel, roasted barley, fruit and nut toast, dried currants and a touch of allspice. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a chewy texture and a long, progressive finish. Alcohol content is deceptively well hidden!
