3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a thin puddly head. Toffee dominates the aroma. Flavour is toffee, mild coffee with a chewy malt backbone. Slightly sweet before a restrained bitter finish.
Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is dark malt with caramel, roast, dark bread, and notes of raisins. Flavour is sweet with a surprisingly firm bitterness. Body is medium. Certainly drinkable, but this doesn’t have the depth of a great Doppelbock. loscovar (374) - Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 5, 2017
Bottle from saveur biere. Nice use of the malts, pretty sweet and balanced beer JDBaker11058 (2220) - Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2017
appearance: medium brown, clear, creamy light beige head. aroma: caramel, toasted rye bread, some nuts and raisin. taste: golden raisin, caramel, toasted nuts, brown sugar. finish: as it warms, it gets slightly bready and just a hint of earthy, grassy hops show up. notes: Good palate, on the lighter end for the style, good flavors. Enjoyable even on a hot Florida day. Bottle at Disney’s Hollywood Studios from a cart by the Toy Story ride.

Bottle. 6.7%. Best before 29.09.17. Pours a dark, golden/chestnut brown, with a light tan head. Decent lacing. Rather malty aroma, a bit fruity and with a hint of chocolate. Slightly dusty. Flavour is rather malty as well, again with a chocolate note. Fruity and a bit dusty as well. (Rye) bread note as it warms. Sweetish, bitter finish. More malt, fruit and light chocolate. Overall good, with a nice malt profile, though a wee bit clying in the long run. 31.03.17. TH28 (451) - - MAR 24, 2017
12oz bottle. 2/8/16 bottle date. Appearance: Deep rich ruby red, brilliantly clear, with a moderate off white foam head.
Aroma: Toast, caramel, chocolate, and a touch of black cherry. No noticeable hop aromas.
Taste: Rich bready, toasty, and molasses malt sweetness. Bread crust really stands out on the swallow, with a touch of chocolate. Minimal hoppiness just enough to prevent the sweetness from being cloying.
Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy bodied with some syrupy quality, and a low carbonation.
Finish: lingering bread crusts and touch of chocolate.
Overall: Decent Doppelbock that is heavy on Munich malt character of toasted bread crust, but seems to lack the malt complexity of German versions that have a rich dark fruit flavor. Beer seems a little thick and syrupy, which throws off the balance a bit, likely due to the age of the beer mike_77 (6673) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2017
Dark brown with quick fading head. Aroma and flavour are intense with toasted malts, caramel and a milk chocolate type of smooth sweetness. Erzengel (8768) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2017
*Bottle from Rudat. Malty smooth roasted chocolate beginning. The malts are dark and round with a nice smooth sweetness. Slightly bitter rich dark aftertaste. Nice typical Doppelbock. Aggiebob (1134) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Bottle. It has a dark mahogany color with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has roasted malt, chocolate, nuts, caramel and toffee. It has a slight astringency on the backend.
