4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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..

Dark red/brown beer with light brown head. Nice yummie aroma of prunes. The taste has a really good balance between the light roasted taste from the dark malts and a light sweetness from the caramel malts. The prunes are present in the taste as well. When sipping along the sweetness seem to dominate though, but in a good way. Good carbonation and body. This is a really good bock in my opinion!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Restaurang Rauhrackel, Lund, 4 June 2015. Pours a dark, ruddy brown/black, good head and lacing. The nose is reticent: whiffs of violets, if that's not too fanciful. Sweet cherries on the palate, heavy mouthfeel yet quite elegant. A good traditional bock and even a bit exotic.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours translucent chocolate brown with a fairly thick light tan head. Crisp, malty aroma has an overtone of apple touched with pear. Flavor is considerably richer than the aroma, fuller in character and bringing notes of caramel and cloves into play. Mouthfeel has decent fizz, if average body. Enjoy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,5 l bottle from Rudat, bottled on 28/10/2014. Clear, very dark red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Pleasant, sweetish-fruity aroma of raisins, plums, amarena cherries and cane sugar. Sweetish-fruity taste of amarena cherries, raisins, plums and cane sugar, accompanied by hints of dark chocolate, nuts and coffee. Medium long, slightly bitter, gently alcoholic and warming finish. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Really nice sipper. Not just sweet and cloying but with a great palate and very harmonic. Good doppelbock!
