Copper-old gold. Clean, with a bit of foam.
Malty smell, alcoholic notes, fruit in acohol. Maybe some hazelnut.
Again boozy in the mouth, along with light notes of almond and walnut.
Full bodied and important beer.
Again walnut and almod in the aftertaste, with warming alcohol.
Beer to sip.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a Burley Oak snifter

A: Dirty blonde hay/straw color, with no lacing or collar, but a tiny bit of head on the pour.
S: Deliciously fruity esters with a tinge of alcohol in there. Seems a bit Belgian in its smell.
T: Definitely a pale doppelbock. Alcohol is definitely utilized as a flavor here. Pretty straight forward in the bock section though.
M: Nice bit of carbonation to it, but a bit slick overall like a spirit.
O: I haven't had Samichlaus from them, but this is a decent start, which it probably was from them.

Like the Sammichlaus Classic, too sweet. Purchased in Villach at a Eurospar.

4.1/5  rDev +14.5%

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 9.6%.

Appearance: It has a deep amber color with a slight haze and some big bits of sediment floating around inside. From the pour I got very thin and very quick fading head. This leaves the beer completely uncovered and there is absolutely no lacing.

Smell: The aroma is big, full and sweet. There are loads of sweet candy like notes of apples, pears, figs and plums inside of a fruitcake like maltiness.

Taste / Palate: All the sweet notes from the aroma come though in the flavor plus a note of cherry almond ring coffee cake and the mellow glow of a warming 9.6% abv. The feel is slick and smooth as there is very little carbonation. It’s like drinking liquid candy.

This Austrian Doppelbock pours a clear, antique, gold with a tall white head that quickly vanishes leaving some moderate lacing on the glass. The smell is vaguely sherry like with little in the way of complexity. The same goes for the flavor, which, while pleasant enough, has no character from either the hops or malt. It's a sweet, very strong beer, no more or less. Medium body, sticky.
