Beer Review #72
Brauerie Schloss Eggenberg - Vorchdorf, Austria
- Dopplebock brewed once a year and aged for 10 months. One of the rarest beers in the world. -
-The pour is deep amber with orange hints in the light. An off white head lasted a few seconds and left no lace, but it does leave alcohol legs on the glass. Swirling the glass makes some foam but never permanent.
-The nose is milk chocolate and bready grain sweetness at first then its almost over powered by dark and dried fruits. Plum, raisin, and maraschino cherries. There’s some honey and nuttiness too.
-The taste is very sweet with warming alcohol. The dry raisin and syrupy cherry hints at port wine notes. Honey, chocolate, toasted grain, caramel, almond, brown sugar, oak, saltiness or brine all stacked on each other.
-The mouthfeel is slightly slick, and full bodied like red wine. No carbonation.
Overall- 6.4/10 I REALLY think I drank this too early, maybe a year or 10 too early. For what it was, it was crazy complex, with lots of warm alcohol. Just like a rich red wine with lots of different sweet malt flavors. I gotta get more and let them sit for a year or 2.
