4.18/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

First doppelbock and first Italian beer...

Great tan head, very rich, clear, nutty-brownish-red color. The color is excellent. (Appearance note: my bottle looks way cooler than the BA one pictured, nice work Castello Di Udine).

Smells strongly of sweet malts. Not sure what else to say -- no hops, can't really pick out anything from the sweetness. Some breadiness.

Huge malt profile, wow. Somewhat to my surprise, also a substantial amount of hops, although they play second fiddle here. Very bready and chewy. A little bitter on the finish from some generic hops. A little bit of nuttiness.

Mouthfeel is superb, pretty thick. Leaves a coating in your mouth, whew. Carbonation is well matched with the style/flavor. Creamy.

I don't want to overrate this, since I don't have any doppelbocks to compare it to. That said, it is delicious. I can't believe this has a 7.2%abv ... so easy to drink. A big beer that is super malty instead of super hoppy ... what an idea.
