@ Beer tasting, Havregatan 141206. Really malty and sweet with light caramely notes, medium to full body. The finish is dry and malty. Too malty in my opinion.

Strong aroma, German malts take the main stage with chocolate and light bitterness. Dark mahogany medium bodied looks at home in a Berliner Kindl goblet. Picked up a 500 ml bottle at Whole Foods for four bucks and change.

A fantastic malty brew, worthy of it’s praise. Smells of dough and raisins. Taste is similar. A touch sweeter and more alcoholic than some, but also ridiculously smooth and with a better flavor. Very well done.

Bottle from supermarket. Deep ruby red, clear with beige head that disappears quickly. Strong aroma of roasted malts, some dark fruits and nuts. Taste equally malt dominated, some malt sweetness. Lingering roasted aftertaste. Hop character only in the background bitterness. A beer with plenty of character.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cl. Pours a moderate diert white head, dark brown to ruby but with still a bit clear colour. Smells brown sugar, light roastiness, cereals, dried fruits, cinammon spices. Tastes caramel, all malt, toffee, hints of cocoa; nice and right level of sweetness, minimal bitter notes, just some slight final roastiness. Medium body, sticky oily texture, good and balanced carbonation. Extremely drinkable, refined; now I aslo see why it has also "dunkel in the name" (not as doppelbock as a celebrator), between the top doppelbock but not the best. Nice one!

Pretty one note, just malty, not much else. Pours a nice deep red. Smells and tastes like malt liquor. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.
