bottle, a year or two old, i forget. reddish brown colour, some cocoa, fish sauce and caramel in the aroma. still a big hit of alcohol, not that much bitterness, some stone fruits, passable

Bottle. OK, obvious ale yeast. Toffee, apple, soy, caramel, bit sticky, with some noticeable alcohol. Not a favoured style, but it was OK.

Almost no aroma to this. deep ruby color. Flavor is rich with fruits and hops. A citrus ester was in deep in the flavor but jumped out at me in the end.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a copper brown color with a big off-white beige head. has a caramel aroma. The beer produces a great malt syrup bolus. The sweetness is then smoothed out by at great bitter hop palate. This has a phenomenal mouth feel. The best beer poured here.

On tap at the Widmer Gasthaus, Portland brewhouse. Poured a dark chocolate brown, with a good tan head. Coffee and chocolate Great palate, almost like oil. This was by far my favorite, and wish is was available in bottles in my hometown. A real winner.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the tap house. Pours deep cherry red with a fast falling white head. Sweet malt aroma with chocolate and caramel. The first taste I noticed was some cocoa up front followed with a rich caramel body, some nice weight on the palate showed the thicker body of this beer. Very well balanced but fairly mild doppelbock.

A sweet chocolaty buttery nose. SMOOTH buttery toffee palate leading into the warming toffee finish, excellent!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was not bad. Brown with some ruby highlights, and a nice creamy head and some sticky lacing. A little bit of herbaly sweetness right up front followed by some stick chocolate and caramel. Strong oily mouthfeel, not bad, not my favorite, but still well made.
