3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and grass with some dark fruits. Taste is a caramel malty and raisin sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Body is medium with light carbonation. A decent doppelbock, but lacking in complexity with other doppelbocks.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Pours a clear garnet with tan head.
S - Toasted brown bread, toasted brown sugar, vanilla.
T - Follows the nose - Brown bread crust, woody grain, caramel, light but earthy bitterness, some berry fruit underneath. Bready and nutty on the finish.
M - Low carbonation, thin medium body.
All good except for the mouthfeel was a little off. I would drink this again but wouldn’t go out of my way to find it.

Bottle. Pours clear, dark Amber with a lasting White head. Sweet toffee aroma. Flavour has lots of toffee/caramel and some dark pruney sweetness. Full bodied with the ABV just knocking at the door on the finish. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 8.2%. The aroma is slightly fruity with a touch of brown sugar. Clear dark brown colour. Small tan head. The flavour is sweet and peppery in OK balance. A little fruity in the finish, which I do not think suits it. Not as flavourful as I expected from a Doppelbock.
