4.05/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 500 ml (16.9 oz) slender brown bottle with info about the beer on the back label as well as the freshness date.

Appearance: Slight chill haze with a deep brown color with reddish orange hues, the thin light beige lace is nearly unmovable.

Smell: Malty with a sweet caramel prune like aroma, very fragrant with undertones of toasted bread.

Taste: Full bodied with a chewy mouth feel and a creamy soft carbonation. Malt flavour is dominant though the sweet and spicy alcohol, medium bitterness and mild yet crisp carbonation keep it in check a bit. Malt sweetness lingers with a big caramel and prune flavour. Suggestions of chocolate, crust of sweet bread and a mild peppery flavour from the hops. Toasted grain, faint hop leaf and a touch of earthy character wrap up the finish.

Notes: A tasty malt towering brew, makes for a great dessert or end of the night brew. Brewed in the old style of Dunkles Starkbier meaning dark strong beer, more or less can be classified as a Double Bock due to its massive maltiness and boasting an alcohol by volume of 7.4%.

3.96/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

The bottle is so us usual and beautiful, I had to try it. Poured from a bottle into a Pilsner, at a temperature between the fridge and room temp. Color is a crystal clear strawberry red with the slightest brown tinge when held up to intense light. Thin, tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, with roasted malt and caramel sweetness, with mild floral hops. Flavor is again yeasty, roasted malt, toffee sweetness, with a slightly piney finish. Mouthfeel is medium thin, and a bit foamy. This is a style that I do not understand (doppelbock), so I am rating it just as an enjoyable brew and experience. On that basis, I will say it is a very good to outstanding lager, well worth sampling. And this one has a bear, not a goat on the label.
