4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
initially, I got an nose of cherry, but it further developed into a bit of a fig aroma, with some hints of "other fruit" tartness. Upon an initial sip, fig definitely stands out as the dominant flavor. It a very good beer with deep, rich fruit flavors. I’m not quite sure what I was getting, but it was dark, rich, and bold. A very rich brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light reddish-brown with a thin offwhite head. Aroma is hoppy. Taste is bitter with a touch of sweetness. There are notes of earthy hops up front along with a bit of nutty malt and red fruit and musty yeast. Body is light with medium-low carbonation. It’s a bit like an extra hoppy English bitter with some continental yeastiness. Very interesting!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is caramel, earthy hops, malt, bready, bitter, slightly metallic. Appearance is brownish red, off white to light tan head, somewhat hazy. Taste is bitter, malt, bready, earthy hops, not as much caramel as I expected, definitely more bitter than sweet. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, bitter malt and earthy hop aftertaste. Overall, this is good but I prefer the Doppel Sticke.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. From Wine Rack, West Byfleet. Caramel/grassy aroma but low on the dial. Dark amber, verging on opaque. Creamy if thin off-white head. Light bitter. Develops a citric sourness. Medium bodied. Soft. Carbonation. Dry finish, with a touch of the astringent. Less going on than the standard Alt I just had, but perhaps best described as more refined. A more balanced taste and I prefer the palate. There’s even some warmth in finish from the additional ABV.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Schaum: gut beständig leicht sämig
Nase: leicht gerösteter Malz ziemlich fruchtig! So nach getrockneten Feigen, Karamell.
Geschmack: Vollmundig schon von vorne herein, ohne übermäßig süß und schwer zu sein. Wobei so etwas bockig ist es schon vor allem der schwer-malzige Nachgeschmack. Angenehm in Säure und Bitterkeit. Runder Abgang dann dominiert der röst-karamellmalz.
Echt nicht schlecht, eine Entdeckung! War mir bisher nicht so klar was die in Düsseldorf so draufhaben. Schade dass es das in Bayern kaum wo gibt.
