3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle dated 09.09.09. From my trade with MrBunn. I’ve decided that despite their high abv, doppelbocks probably should be laid to age too long. This one was fine, but some yeast has settled out and autolyzed, I think. Still, a big malty nose starts under the cap and doesn’t let up. Deep brown color. Taste is full of malts. As I suggested, this may have some dead yeast, which you can make work with you on a beer like this. Notes of clove too. Overall, a pleasant experience to drink. Hmm, no sediment on the bottom, so part of my opinion goes out the window. This wouldn’t stop me from ever having one again.

mörkare bärnstensfärgad öl med ljusbeige skum. Doften och smaken ör söt med malt, karamell, mogna mörka frukter och viss alkoholsötma. En viss beska balanserar sötman något.

Big malty smells with a cherry undertone. Pours clear dark mahogany with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Big round tastes of carmel, malt and sweet lingering finish some distinct alcohol but in balance. Mild carbonation and a fizzy mouthfeel. Very creditable.

This is my first Doppelbock and I really enjoy the style. I have purchased it in both bottles and cans. Great malty, sweet aroma and taste. The one downside is that it does not pour with much of a head which quickly dissipates to nothing. I have tried two different types of glasses with no luck.
