Pours clear, gold in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is vanilla, grain, and butterscotch with noticeable alcohol on the finish . Heavy bodied, moderate carbonation and sweet. Makes for an above average sipper. Sweeter and more vanilla forrward than most beers of this style.

Clear pale colour, medium carbonation, pouring with a decent head.
Floral aromas. The taste is immediately dominated by sweetness combined with a relatively high alcohol content. Dried fruits and vanilla are also felt. Pleasant and long-lasting aftertaste.
A verry good beer, pretty different than other standard doppelbocks.

Decanted into a standard conical pint. Pours a hazy orange amber with a light head and minimal lacing or legs. Sweet, apple nose; refreshing flavor, almost like a mild IPA. Light bodied given the ABV. Really a delightful experience; I could see myself drinking this on a beach with a good novel.

Best before 7/26/2018.

Pours a beautiful deep gold color with great clarity and a tall, white, creamy head. Rich toasted malt aroma with some faint noble hops in the background. Heavy malt flavor that comes across as sweet in the beginning but actually finishes pretty dry. A slight kiss of warming alcohol at the end, but it's not hot at all. Full bodied, smooth, rich, and clean.

I wasn't sure what to expect going into this beer but it turned out to be a really well-made beer and a nice change of pace from your typical dark doppelbock. The best thing I can compare it to is a Maibock on steroids. Prost!

Light golden and hazy, little carbonation and topped with a finger of off white head.

Smells of banana candy and cloves.

Lightly sweet, a little creme brulee, and some slightly bitter notes.

Light but syrupy body, little carbonation. Really covers the alcohol.

Got at Rimping Market, and drinking in Chiang Mai Nov 23rd, 2016. Covers the ABV well, and looks good in the glass.
