3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep caramel, reddish hued, thin foamy light beige head, sparce lacing.   Huge semi-sweet
bready aroma, with dark pitted fruit and nuts.   Very bready on the tongue, malty, semi-sweet, some molasses and
even a bit of dull sweetened toffee.   This one is very meaty.   Full bodied, fairly thick mouthfeel.
This is a fairly big Doppel Bock from start to finish.   Bready, fruity, moderate sweetness, and certainly big.
Good heavy example.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml flip top bottle, sampled in a Gulden Draak tulip,
this Doppelbock had a clear ruby-red pour with dark bronze color at the sides of the glass and made a one to two finger off-white head,
the glass was full of streaming bubbles, and left small spots and rings of lacing on the glass, I found no sediment in the bottle,
the aromas were a mixture of some dark fruit – fig and date with a little dried cherry here and there, toasted malt, chocolate and dark sweet bread with faint caramel,
flavors were dried fruit (same as the aroma), dark bread, some caramel, toasted malt and a little chocolate,
it was drying after the finish with just a touch of bitterness, the drink starts with a little bread and fruit sweetness but ends dry after the finish,
the mouth feel was more than medium and presented a nice creamy feel on the palate,
a very nice drink, I would recommend.
