Schloss Eggenberg "Samichlaus Bier"
Doppelbock (ABV14%)

[Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 3.2/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

Poured a medium brown with a slight red hue around the edges and a small white fizzy head with no lacing to speak of. The aroma was heavy with the scent of toasted malts, a mild resin hop and a soapy yeast with notes of dried fruit (raisins and plums) and a strong does of alcohol. It tasted very sweet and a little acidic with almost a wine characteristic from the dried fruit from start to finish with a real warming sensation from the high alcohol content at the end. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall a very boozy brew, a little more than I would have liked.

    BrewGuy44 This is a beer to cellar for 3 to 5 years or longer! It will get better with age.
