My first Italian beer.

Dark brown in color with ruby hues when juxtaposed against light. Less than a finger thick almost tan colored head that has good standing. Stays as a thin one cm layer. Decent to excellent laces with every sip. Opaque and dark.

Some maltiness. A lot of caramel and toasty notes. Some noble hop aroma. A little alcohol. Some dark fruits, may be. Raisins or dry nuts. A very nice aroma that is not overly strong like better doppelbocks but still is good enough.

Malty and toasty with a lot of caramel flabor. A low on alcohol side feel, but warmth is there, if only a little bit. Some chocolate flavor also comes off and melanoidins for whatever they mean. Some sweetness that makes the finish semi dry. A lot of sweet maltiness. May be a little too much, with lack of enough hops.

Medium-full to almost full bodied feel. Low to very slightly moderate carbonation. Very smooth without harshness or astringency.

Overall a very likable doppelbock that has slightly under-attenuated maltiness. A little lacking in the feel and smell as well.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into standard pint
Marked aroma of malt
Head large (5 cm), rocky, light brown, rapidly diminishing to 1 cm layer
Lacing good - reticulum
Body amber, clear
Flavor very malty, slightly sweet; no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl. Ends fairly quickly with slight bitterness.
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation

I was pleasantly surprised – this was better than I expected and actually was a good doppel bock.
