Wow, the pour was amazing. The off white head stuck around for a while over the amber red. Looked so delicious and inviting and served a portion of anticipation and excitement.

Smell, ah, malt malt, nothing more complex than malt.

Taste, again, malt malt. A bit of sweetness before the malt bombardment added even more to the cringe in my mouth.

I drank it but it wasn't as enjoyable as the pour had made the beer out to be. If you like malt you like this beer. Very consistent taste for the name double malt.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear reddish brown color with a small off white head, which fades quickly, and leaves spotty lacing. the aroma has caramel, roasted malt, and a little dark fruit. Nothing special.

The taste has roasted malt, caramel, maybe some dark fruit. Tastes too sweet to me, and is a bit off putting. There are definitely better tasting Doppelbocks than this.

Light bodied for the style with modest carbonation. Has an overly sweet aftertaste. I like a good Doppelbock, but this one is far from good. Will avoid in the future.

33cl bottle purchased from the local supermarket in Sorrento.

Pours a very clear, deep amber-red colour, almost verging on brown. Head forms a fuzzy mess to begin with, but fizzles out to a fine ring, still fed by some fairly buoyant carbonation. Body has a bit of weight behind it, pleasantly enough. Looks pretty good.

Nose is strangely weak, and certainly not as malty as the palate will turn out to be. It has a slight metallic grain character, and some savoury notes a little like honey soy chicken, but it's certainly much lighter than I expected. It's fine, but it would be great with more character.

Taste is a lot better. Here there's a firm, fragrant maltiness—rich but refined, with wholesome grain characters, plus lilting spice and fruit notes from the extra hit of booze and esters. Finish is soft, but still quite rich and full, leaving a long linger of languid bittersweetness resting on the tongue like burnt toffee. It's very nice.

Feel is good. It has heft behind it, but doesn't overwhelm the palate. Too much weight in a beer like this and it could become a chore to work through.

Overall, really very good stuff. For a brewery that makes their dough from yet another pale euro lager, I'm really pleased to see that this is quite widely available as well. It's significantly better than almost anything else the big Italian breweries seem to bring out.
