A solid, flavorful doppelbock. Copper clear color, good mild malt, slight bitter finish. March madness 2017 ludhaber (126) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 24, 2017
A smooth malty beer. Relative to some other Doppelbocks, the aroma is lacking, maybe related to age of the bottle. Head retention is weak. GRM (4046) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2017

Dark brown color with off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is fruity malts white a good balance. ozzatoadisback (172) - ITALY - FEB 17, 2017
Light brown, reddish hints, lots of bubbles. Average mocha head, ok retention and some lacing. Aroma shows delicate roasted malts (with a touch of ground coffee), caramel and slight fruitiness. Average intensity. Taste is obviously malty with caramel and dark bread, again a slight roasted malts note and delicate dark/dried fruit hints. Overall pleasantly sweet with just the right amount of roasted malts to bring enough balance. Slighty warming with still perfectly hidden alcohol. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation (pretty high per style i guess), quite creamy but still goes down very easy. Overall, nicely warming while still perfectly balanced and highly drinkable. Very good. SaintMatty (7362) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2017
