3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Import bottle. Kicked up a rather tall head when poured into a tall glass. The thick head persisted, leaving rings behind. A dark amber body with almost no carbonation bubbles, but little pinpricks on the tongue. Taste is very sweet, more than malty. Hop profile is mild, but somewhat like a Vienna. Has a pretty good lager finish. ABV is a nice bonus, made me decide "it must be a bock" before I came here to rate it. Definietly go for this if it's in an Italian restaurant.
Pours dark amber with thick foamy head that lingers. Aroma is Munich hops and cereal. Taste is caramel with slight sweetness that is rapidly counter-balanced with a bitter hoppiness. Finish is smooth and relatively flavorless. This is not a great doppelbock, which means it's still a decent beer. ozzatoadisback (208) - ITALY - NOV 2, 2017
Pours a slightly murky dark brown with a not too big off-white that shows pretty good retention and a touch of lacing. Aroma shows caramel malts, slight roasted malts and a hint of fruitiness. Simple but vivid enough. Taste is medium to high sweet and medium bitter, overall quite on the sweet side and averagely so per style. Same notes as in the aroma, maybe a bit monotonous. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, a bit light in a body for a doppelbock, given the not too high abv could as well be listed as a dunkler bock.Overall a fair and flawless dark bock, though quite unsignificant.

Draft at La Bettalona. Better than expected. Malty but mostly dry, with a fair amount of hoppy tingle. Daboch (177) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 22, 2017

Erg maltig inderdaad. Mijn telefoon maakt automatisch matig van maltig en misschien wel terecht in dit geval AlastairEvans (24) - - SEP 4, 2017
Heck of a doppelbock from heineken/birramoretti at 7.2%, I'll order this when there's only lagers. bpreo (2953) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 31, 2017
It's got that malty European beer taste that they love. I don't love it, and that's why we don't sell too many of them around here. Luckily it has a decently high alcohol content, so I'll drink through it. caribou43 (1193) - Lausanne/Sevilla/Lima, SWITZERLAND - AUG 29, 2017
Thanks Karina for these beers that you picked up in Domodossola. I drank it the last week at home in Lausanne. In my point of view, it is surely the best beer of this brewery, totally drinkable, pleasant for the palate, standard and well balanced during all the phases of the drink. Firstly, the taste is malty, bready, sugar, some hop, toasted malt, few notes of plum, a bit watery. The color is an original red/brown body, white and brown foam, regular carbonation. Classical but good. Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a nice foamy head with medium retention and some lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt notes with some residual sugar notes also noticeable. Taste is also a mix of caramel malt with light cereal notes and residual sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation. OK amber ale but nothing to write home about.
