Poured into a tall glass. Huge 5 finger head which dissipates to a nice frothy cap. Very dark brown with an attractive auburn or dark red hue. Almost no light comes through when held up to light. Definitive chocolate and malt flavor with notes of coffee and perhaps a distant plum. Sort of a roasted taste on the back end. Smooth mouth feel with some bitterness and carbonation. Reminds me of some porters I've had. Low alcohol by volume, almost too low but I like beers with a higher than 6% ABV. Overall a very agreeable beer that I would drink again.

Poured a deep, deep brown. Clear when help up to the light. A thick tan fizzy head settles down to a light covering and leaves small amounts of lacing. The aroma is malty, with notes of dark fruit and dark toffee. The taste is equally malty, with a nice herbal hops to balance it and a slight spicy quality to the finish. The body is thick and full, almost heavy like a Scottish ale. A great example of a doppelbock.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 5C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L4013. AROMA: sweet and pleasant malt aromatics with some toasty, bread crust and caramelly notes. no hop aroma and very faint dried grapes aromas. APPEARANCE: dark Brown color with ruby highlights. good clarity. average moussy head with dark ivory color and good retention. TASTE: very nice flavours ranging from a plethora of melanoidins with toasty notes and bread crust. sweet malty background with a clean lager profile without any kind of diacetyl. low bitterness. finishes semi-sweet. PALATE: medium-full body with moderately-low carbonation. smooth. OVERALL: a very nice exemple of a traditional doppelbock which is delicious and a feast for the senses.
