Had 0.5l on tap at a Munich restaurant.
Arrived in a branded stein with a hazy brown-copper body and a tannish thick head. An aroma of molasses, cocoa and candied cherries. Tastes of canned brown bread, coffee and malty sweetness. Mouthfeel was full and chewy. I easily quaffed 2/3 before the meal and the last 1/3 to cut the grease on my veal schnitzel dinner.

Pours a slighty hazy, orange-brown color; a bit lighter than I remember. Creamy, off-white head that dissipates a little too fast. Nice lacing. Malty, sweet, caramel apple aroma. Dark fruit-like, figs, but also similar to a red grape variety. Lovely. Flavors of rich, toasted malts, but not too heavy. More figs. Smooth, round body. Just a really nice Doppelbock.

The beer is a copper color, hazy, and medium carbonation. The head is thin and white. The beer smells of dark fruits, and a slight sweet smell. The taste is similar. The beer is not overly sweet or overly strong in the dark fruit flavor either. There is not much bitterness or other flavors either. The beer feels a little thin or watery in the mouth and has a slight stickiness to it. Good carbonation.
