3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 A reddish copper color with a minimal head. The aroma is sweetish and on the whole malt-driven; notes of bread, caramel and some fruitiness. Taste is also malty, light sweet at first, later toward finish drier. Caramel, slightly toffeeish maltiness features with some dark fruitiness and toasty malty notes. The palate is medium bodied, fairly smooth. All in all a decent doppelbock, nothing special though, and hints of alcohol do appear in the taste.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Nice German beer! The malty taste is delicious. It has a colour reminiscent of rosé wine, nice head and an aromatic taste. I would recommend it.

Very nice beer for a little bit more demanding taste. A bit alcoholic taste, light body and thin texture. Best with strong cheeses with high in proteins. This is a special beer which needs special athmosphere to have it. This is a beer that tastes itself, not bananas. Nice hops with nice taste of herbs, sage... Not everyday and not everybody. Somehow this beer feels more like a vine, not beer.

Pours an orangish red with a tight light tan head. Smell is grain, corn mash, a little caramel. Taste is caramel, some grain a bit of alcohol and a spicy bite at the end. The body is medium and the carbonation is medium. A pretty nice brew.
