4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted, caramel and cereal for the malt, light herbs for the hops, moderate broth and leather for the yeast, with notes of toffee, tobacco, brown sugar and faint spice in the background. Head is large, creamy turning rocky, light tan with good slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is murky dark rusty brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and slightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and slightly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a soft carbonation. Excellent Doppelbock with a bit more richness than others.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I bought this bottle in Munich during a short stay this winter, I drank it at home tonight before the lunch. In my opinion, it is a delicious doppel bock, well balanced, powerful taste in the mouth, we feel a bit that it is already at 8.1%. The body is
brown and copper, average carbonation, thin foam. The taste is sweet, malty, ginger bread, a little smocked and a bit watery with a final a bit agressiv with the alcohol but it is definitely a good product.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 l bottle from local ’trinkgut’, best before September 2016. Clear, dark amber with a medium large, slightly creamy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, moderately fruity aroma of caramel, treacle, raisins, prunes and brown sugar. Rather sweet, malty and a bit fruity taste of caramel, brown sugar, treacle, raisins and prunes, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Really well-balanced, round and quite intense Doppelbock. Tasty!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a muddy, medium brown, with a mocha head that dissipates quickly. Dark coffee and chocolate are the most prominent scents, with a slight hint of ripe banana underneath. It is medium-heavy in sweetness with flavors of coffee, caramel, and Kaluha. Full-bodied with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. The finish is mildly bitter and is where you really get a lot of the "alcohol" taste. Overall, I find this to be a great beer and don’t really have much to quibble about other than to complain that I don’t have another one waiting for me in the fridge. :)
