3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown beer with a creamy dark brown head. Very chocolatey aroma, milk chocolate and malted milk balls. Herbal noble hop aroma lurking behind the sweet chocolatey malts. Well-lagered and quite clean tasting. Lots of dark toasted malt. A well-constructed doppelbock.
