2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Fairly clear coppery red pour with a creamy beige head that quickly shrinks to surface cover. Sweet malty nose has notes of toffee, dates, chocolate, nuts and raisins. Flavour is pretty similar, a little more roasty and the fruitiness takes a backseat to the nutty malt overtones. Alcohol is well hidden but the sweetness becomes a bit overbearing. Medium to light bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel, lively carbonation and a lingering roasty, sweet finish. Rather simplistic overall and somewhat unbalanced in favour of malty sweetness. Drinkable but not the best example of this style.

Prune and sweet raisens. Don’t really get these beers. Big ABV is well hidden. Not a fan

Bottle @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours ruby amber with a small creamy white head. Caramel, dark fruit , prune, grains and a whiff of alcohol. Nose promises more chewy caramel and vinousness, Smooth and full bodied. Pretty good!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear dark reddish amber with a good coat of beige head. Aroma of singed toffee, bread, prunes, raisins. Low carbonation, slightly syrupy. Fairly sweet with toffee and dried fruit, vanilla. Bitterness creeps in at the end to clean up nicely and there’s modest spice at the end too. No heat at all from the alcohol. Not a lot of personality, but powerful and tidy.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. I brought this. Mid to dark brown and almost clear. A small beige head. I am not sure what is being smelled. Toffee? Fruit and butterscotch. Wheat and cocoa flavors are nice but not big. Alcohol flavor. A nice beer, actually.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Bierzwerg.de.
Pours clear red amber with a small, frothy, off-white head. Fizzes a bit. Aroma has caramel, light sugary, mild toasted, softly vinious, light grassy. Medium to high carbonation, lovely light and pretty creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is delicious and balanced, fat caramel, toasted, vinious, light warming. Soft red berries, a hint of chocolate. Fine vinious and softly bitter finish. Very good doppelbock.
