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

Look: Rich, dark brown color, slightly off-white head that turns to lacing and lingers a bit, clear.
Smell: Not very strong. Some malt. Not much else
Taste: A bit toasty but not roasted, sweet, caramel, some noble hops but not a lot
Feel: Medium body, a bit slick going down, smooth carbonation but enough to be lively
Overall: Not bad. Better than some of the other offerings from the same brewery. Not something I'd order, but if it was on a menu and it was this or other macro lagers, I'd take this one in a heartbeat.

This is probably the best one I had by these makers, still has that Heineken taste but is covered a little by the extra hops, if you're going to get anything by these guys get this red.

Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a nice foamy head with medium retention and some lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt notes with some residual sugar notes also noticeable. Taste is also a mix of caramel malt with light cereal notes and residual sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation. OK amber ale but nothing to write home about.

Questa è la migliore birra italiana. This is by far the best Italian beer that is easily found in the States. It smells of sweet caramel and has a subtlety sweet taste to go with it. Gives a full feel in the mouth and easily goes down. A friend of mine from Naples swears that this is the best macro brewery of Italy, and I agree.

L - pours a clear dark cherry brown with a one finger head from the bottle into a tulip glass.

S - reminds me of my Grandma baking raisin bread. Smells like sweet malt, dark fruit, molasses, slight yeast/bread. My wife keeps giving me looks as I sniff my beer repeatedly.

T - Starts sweet and follows the aroma. Has a slight earthy hop note followed by a decent bitterness. It isn't super complex but it's very good.

F - medium carbonation and nice coating mouthfeel.

O - This is a good dopplebock. I'd say this gets an A- where I give Celebrator (the standard for doppelbocks) an A+. The finish isn't long and it isn't incredibly complex in flavor, but it is very flavorful and extremely enjoyable.

A: [3.75] The bottle lists the ABV (7.2%) there is a date code that I don't care to translate. The beer has a mahogany color with cherry hues. It has 1 finger of creamy off white head.

S: [3.50] Brown bread, raisins, some peat. Overall pleasant.

T: [3.25] The taste is spiced sweet apples, toffee and then something a little "off". Also the flavor is overly sweet.

M: [3.75] The beer is creamy and full bodied

O: [3.25] I have to repeat that this beer is overly sweet. That is the biggest detractor. The nose is okay but the taste is just "misaligned" it just doesn't taste good. Ultimately the sweetness becomes cloying.
