Daisen G Doppelbock Aroma and Taste
Daisen G Doppelbock poured out a deep reddish brown colour with a tan coloured head on top that clung to the side of the glass. It had a strong toasted caramel malt aroma with some toasted smell coming along for the ride too. Those looking for hops in Daisen G Doppelbock would be sorely disappointed as it’s all about the malt. There was some semblance of alcohol once Daisen G Doppelbock had warmed up to room temperature but as it did, the caramel nose also became stronger too.
The body was pretty much similar to the aroma – strong caramel and alcohol flavours coming through with a slight toasted malt just lingering in the background. It would have been nice to have drunk Daisen G Doppelbock in front of a fire – be it indoors or outside around a campfire – but drinking it sat under a kotatsu gives a pretty similar feeling. It’s a warming beer but at 8%, the alcohol does come through towards the end. Just make sure you switch off the kotatsu before the inevitable passing out after drinking this.
Daisen G Doppelbock The Bottom Line
Daisen G Doppelbock is a pretty faithful representation of a doppelbock – not earth shattering or ground breaking but it’s tasty.
