Bottle. This pours a very dark brown with a nice layar of tanned head on top. Head leaves fairly quick, within two minutes or so. Very malty based aroma, earthy notes and a light, alcoholic smell to it as well. Flavour is spiced sweet, very full bodied, full of the earthy notes and even a bit of a roasty character, at least there is some burnt caramel and molasses in there. This is an awesome example of how a doppelbock should be in my honest opinion. Too bad I only brought one bottle..

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Really deep ruby red almost black with a light beige head (quickly diminishing). Aroma is dark fruit, bready malt and yeast. Flavour is sweet, a tiny bit of sourness and then a really light bitterness in the finish. Texture is oily, carbonation is light. Not overly impressed at first although it got a bit better as it went on.

Bottle from Stirchleywines. Brown beer with small head. Aroma of malts and brown treacle. The taste is malts, licorice and some sweet treacle. Quite full bodied, which I like, but too sticky. My first doppelbock. Nice experience, need to try more.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deep brown color with a small reddish affect, creamy beige foam. Beautiful :)
Complex aroma of dried fruit, malt and grain, marzipan.
Smooth and sweet tasting yet softly balanced by hop with a nice uplifting flavor to the thick and sweet roasted malt. Smooth and durable finish.
The alcohol content is noticeable but not intrusive throughout, lightly carbonated.
Just drink and smile because whatever else happens. :)
