Doppelbocks - I can't get enough of them lately, and the latest effort in the glass in front of my ugly gob is by the rather-average-by-German-standards-which-means-they're-actually-pretty-good Paulaner. In any case I'm not going to waste any more time talking about Doppels I'm just going to plunge right in.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a stein.

A: Clear copper body with more carbonation action going on inside than I've ever seen before and a 3 inch beige head. That's right - gargantuan head ahoy.

S: Dark fruits (plum, fig and date) caramel malts, typical heavy Doppel bread notes and a touch of grandma's sherry from the bottle that she keeps at the back of the cupboard behind the sacks of self-raising flour.

D: I waited for hours for that head to go down before drinking. When I finally did get a taste I was welcomed with open arms by an avalanche of grandma's sherry, dark fruits, caramel, bread notes and a dry but slightly herbal bitter finish. It certainly isn't as heady as Weihenstephaner Korbinian or Weißenoher Klosterbrauerei Bonator but it is appreciatively tasty enough. Perhaps a tad on the boozy side though (sorry grandma).

M: Mid to light bodied with a light but dense carbonation, a bit lacking in this respect compared to other Doppels, just saying.

D: Not quite as good as the aforementioned Weihenstephaner Korbinian and Weißenoher Klosterbrauerei Bonator, but nonetheless a tasty Doppel. The bottle size is a little disconcerting, and small, at 330ml compared to the much appreciated standard half litre. As it stands and due to these factors it is a bit of a middle-of-the-road Doppelbock from Paulaner, and after having their excellent Märzen on multiple occasions I would certainly recommend waiting for that 1 litre behemoth to rise from its March slumber if you want the best Paulaner has to offer.

Food match: Whatever grandma has cooked for you when you visit her next - get a taste of grandma's world for a change.
