Löwenbräu Triumphator (7.6%)

This is a great big fat fruitcake of a Doppelbock.
It pours a rich and deep red brown and has a great big stewed berry and gingerbread smell.
The malts are bold and boisterous, packed with thick chewy treacle toffee, bran rich baked biscuit and a big splash of rum.
As you drink, the fruitiness of the aroma becomes mouthfuls of plums and damsons coated in honey and rounded out by apple and pear juice across which the hops are all autumnal.
There’s a woodland crunch, brown and dry with woody bark and crisp leaf litter before an overwhelming burned sugar boozy finish kisses you full on the mouth.
