3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark reddish brown. Medium sized head. Aroma of dark fruits and some coffee and chocolate. Taste is fruity, malty, sweet. Brown sugar that almost makes me think of belgian ales. Aftertaste features happy hoppiness. A real good Doppelbock but to consider it world class I’m missing something in the departments of mouthfeel and complexity. First world problems.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really dark brown color with tan head. Aroma has toasted malt and dark bread. Taste is malty, leans definitely towards the sweet side, dark bread, bread crust, burnt sugar and finishes with a slight earthy bitterness. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Overall it’s quite good but a bit sweet for my taste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Dark sweet brew not as bitter and extreme as Salvator, definitely sweeter and creamier. Some bitterness in the finish but this is a malt bomb doppelbock. Slight booziness to it, but fits the style and isnt abrasive. Reminds me of the Weltenberg barock dunkel with its cookie malt taste, just this one is a bit more fortified. Cool beer but not my favorite ever in the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brian body, beige head. Brown bread, pound cake, bay leaves, bit dusty. Totally in style and while the clean fermentation makes it a little dull, it’s quality stuff. Tasty malty body, very pleasant alcohol warmth. Not sharp or nasal at all, which i like. Generally I would prefer more sweetness but from now and then a good bock is very much appreciated, and this a good one. (50cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
