Review: Salvator Doppel Bock

Salvator Doppel Bock from Paulaner Salvator Thomasbraeu AG
Rating: A-

Appearance: Possibly the reddest-looking beer I've had. Good head with good retention and lacing. Very nice.

Smell: This is probably the weak point, if there is one. Lager yeast and not a lot of hops, so the aroma is fairly subdued. Some caramel malts, but not much.

Taste: Good bit of caramel presence. Biscuity finish that accompanies some alcohol warming. I like it. None of the smokiness of Celebrator, but I'm surprised to see they're so far apart in terms of ratings. This one is just as good, if different.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, with good carbonation.

Drinkability: This was a very good beer, I was pleased. Underrated.

Serving type: bottle
