4.5/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle

A- Very dark brown, almost black in colour. Light brown head with quite huge bubbles, not very good retention but still a bit of lacing on the sides of the glass

S- Bready and caramel malts, with a bit of roastiness. Brown sugar is in the mix. Sweetness is balanced by a touch of earthy/slightly grassy hops and by a nice amount of undernotes: chocolate, coffee, dark fruits

T- The smell was promising, the taste is no let down. Bready malts, with prominent but never too strong caramel notes. Notes of chocolate and liquorice, expecially on the palate, with a touch of hop bitterness/earthyness to bring balance. Some dark/dried fruit notes may also be detected. A delicate touch of alcohol and spices gets in the mix, bringing a bit of life. Aftertaste on the earthy/sugary side, not dry or particullary refreshing but somehow still extremely pleasant. Many beers are bolder in flavour, but this one feels so perfectly balanced

M- Medium body, low carbonation, but just the perfect amount for this beer. Super smooth mouthfeel on both tongue and palate. Flavours and creamy smoothness linger on your palate for as long as the beer is there. Amazing

O- Complex, amazingly drinkable, perfectly balance. Many doppelbocks tend to feel a bit heavy on the stomach but this one sure does not. Awesome beer

4.2/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A- Dark, thick, cola-colored body with a huge, frothy light tan head.

S- Raisins, cherry licorice, rich bready malt. Big aroma filled with rich malts.

T- Very similar to the aroma, big rich malts, raisins, a nice toasted flavor to it with lots of sweetness to balance it out. Some of the aroma and flavor reminds me of the cherry licorice pipes my dad used to buy me.

M- Not quite as thick and chewy as I am used to with doppelbocks, but still very nice and good for the style.

O- A nice example of the style and one of the originals. Not quite as big as a would have imagined, but a solid beer.
