3.05/5 rDev -5.9%
Pours amber-brown, small head, fast to a poor lace.
Very hard to get a whiff of anything, weird: a bit of caramel, faint dark fruit esters.
Taste starts spicy-sweet, with some clear caramel, a bit of toffee, some faint raisin, pinch of vanilla and prickly pepper. Malts get felt later on, sweet, not syrupy, some toasted grains, but i do get a bit of corn there. Some metallic oxidation in the finish, quite bitter, with some green grassy notes.
Medium to light body, just a tiny bit sticky, rather fizzy. Alcohol pinches from time to time, otherwise it brings just a bit of heat. Aftertaste is a bit unclean, some cloying malt sweetness and a bit of bad bitterness.
Not as close to a doppelbock as it'd like, but definitely better than many Euro strong lagers. Decent, which is to say on the border of being good.

330 ml into tulip. BBE 20.July 2011. The beer is advertised as doppelbock so lets see how it meets the requirements of the style.
Off white bubbly head overlays a coppery brown body with good clarity. The short lived head quickly fades to a sheet of loosely agglomerated bubbles that persists.
The nose is strong maltiness, caramel with some melanoidin-toasty notes, hints of dark chocolate and evident hops. Likewise the aroma, the flavor is dominated by malts and caramel with melanoidin-toasty notest. Hops provide dry finish. A bit less than average carbonation with watery texture. Boring.
In short: sweetish, watery imitation of doppelbock.
