Copper red, big beige head. Smell of dark fruits, plums, dust, hints of caramel and vinous aromas. Moderate sweet, dark fruits, darker malts and plums, otherwise quite clean. Moderate bitter finish. Very nice lager, very solid malt base, good flavors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber brown pour with good offwhite head. Earthy, toffee, old white grapes/wine, caramel malts. Kinda like a highly carbonated, imperial vienna lager with belgian yeast. Biscuity. Didn’t really do a whole lot for me. But not horrible.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkedorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a dark-hued clear amber body with a coppery hue and a large, creamy off-white top, looking very palatable indeed. Aroma is grape peel, raisins, grains, caramel and hints of bread crust and straw. Taste is raisins, grains, red berries and hints of bread crust and burnt sugar. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. A bit watery in its makeup for a solid doppelbock IMO, and the flavor profile is also slightly tilted in the Belgian direction which could have worked out better. Nevertheless, a pretty nice and drinkable anniversary lager from Brooklyn.
