3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is very malt forward with hops playing a relatively small part. Color is that of a pretty dark brown ale. Flavor is potent with a somewhat syrupy quality and a bit of caramel. Nose is mostly from the malt aspect of the beer with some noble hopping showing through. Syrupy character of dopplebocks often put me off, but this one is more subdued and is a good example of the style.

Robe ambrée couleur caramel, carbo moyenne, petit collet de fines bulles.
Aromes cereales, caramel, banane
Douce, presque onctueuse, tapisse le palais de notes caramelisés. Malgre ses saveurs sucrés, son equilibre general reste excelent avec l’addition de notes epicés et terreuses.
Le savoir faire de Weihenstephaner est incontournable

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.

Bottle. Dark amber, clear with medium sized white head. Lots of malty, caramel, bready notes mixed with dried fruits, medium sweet, really tasty. Medium to full body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, quite dry in finish with medium herbal bitterness. Really good, classic doppelbock.
