Murky reddish-purple in body with thin white head. Aroma of grapes, medicine cabinet, herbal notes, and alcohol. Tastes of grapes, herbal potion, dark fruit, and an alcoholic burn comes through towards the finish along with some more medicinal flavor. Light in body with light carbonation. Crisp and rather dry for the flavors presented.

Got this as part of a birthday present. Looked interesting as it(the bottle/label/cap) looked very different to common place beers, so much so in fact; that it even stood out when compared to other craft beers (In my local stores anyway). Other than "World Beer Cup© Gold Award 2012" and the word "beer" on the rear label, there were no English words whatsoever(to me this made it more interesting). So just judging by the bottle, I was impressed.
Aroma was very faint although to be fair, I may have used an inappropriate glass.
When poured, the head looked normal, nice off white colour and appropriate height in comparison to glass. However, the head didn't last very long and in turn, disappeared completely within 15/20 minutes.
Tasted delicious! and i can't exaggerate this enough, Im not very good at describing flavours (especially subtle ones) but it has a nice rish almost carmel sweet taste (side note: doesn't taste like 7.2%)

Overall a FANTASTIC beer, must have. I cant wait to buy more. Highly recommend.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a pint glass.

A: Dark amber color. Kind of murky looking. Leaves a small white head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

S: Smells of dark fruits, raisins, some caramel, and malts.

T: Tastes pretty much just like it smells. Nicely balanced, has a little bit of hoppiness to it as well.

M: Medium-bodied, kind of creamy as well. Good amount of carbonation.

O: Good doppelbock, although there isn't really anything in this beer that "wows" me. Tastes kind of like Raisin Bran, which isn't a bad thing. Awesome bottle art, too.
