Intro: A 330ml bottle with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A dark amber brown colour with a just over one finger beige head that had decent retention but eventually settled to a very nice thin cap, while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Sweet malty, doughy, coffee, caramel, grape jam, prune, fig, with a hint of clove.
Taste: Sweet, malty, doughy, roasty coffee, molasses, caramel, dark fruit, plum, prunes, fig, with a hint of clove and smoke.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth, medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: A fantastic balanced Doppelbock which looked great and had good flavours.
