Look: Deep, clear ruby red when held up to the light. One finger of thick tan head.

Smell: Very sweet and doughy. Figs and pecans, or maybe pistachios. Not much that's recognizable as beer.

Taste: A more subdued version of the nose. Sweet bread dough with a hint of roasty bitterness. Not much detectable alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, with very high carbonation that leaves a sparkle on your tongue.

Overall: Despite being Italian rather than German, this is a good example of a doppelbock.

Beer pours a deep ruby brown color with a finger and a half of off white head. There was a little lacing left on the dimpled mug. This beer was better than I had expected from an Italian beer. It is good but no great .

It's no Celebrator but it'll do in a pinch when a Doppelbock is in need. Better if served a tad on the cooler side tho.

Dark amber body topped with a one-finger thick head, dense and creamy. Big aroma of caramel malts; pecans. Classic doppelbock sweetness; flavors match up with the aroma; a slight bit of alcohol; some low-key hop bitterness. Heavy body; smooth and velvety; plenty of heavy residual sugars coat the palette.

I would not think of an Italian doppelbock product, yet here one is and it does the style justice. Dense, malty, with just the right edge of booziness. Fine stuff...

Bottle poured into a shaker glass at an Italian restaurant, can't tell how fresh or old it is from the bottling codes.

Finger and a half off white head, nice clear chestnutty red with coppery highlights. Little lacing, not much.
Nice assorted caramel malts, biscuits, fresh brown bread, light spiciness. A little raisin and nuttiness come through after a bit. Overall very faint, though, making me wish I had a better glass.
Similar palate with more biscuity malts and a little licorice. The flavor opens up a lot more once it warms and the caramel aftertaste lingers a lot longer with a hint of coffee, or maybe more like black tea.
Medium-light bodied, only a bit of a chew to it.

Good, crisp doppelbock on its own, but very good with spicy pizza and cannelloni.

Moderate pour yields an almost two inch light tan head over a mahogany body with nice lacing. Nose of very subdued roasted malts and nondescript dark fruit. Taste follows nose unwillingly with a good feel. Overall, a solid "meh" for this one. Cheers?
