Bomber from Princeton Liquor. Murky muddy brown pour with an off white head. Lots of chocolate malt on the aroma with some dark fruit. Body isn’t as dense as it looks. Good stuff.

maneliquor (3479) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2011
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a hazy straw with a large, fluffy white head. Aroma is full of bubblegum and spiced notes. Cloves and herbal notes come through in the taste with an overriding bubblegum essence. Not bad, definitely a quaffer

25.4 oz bottle. Murky brown with a lovely crema cap. Nose is raisin, dates, brown sugar and yeast. Chewy, substantial body with a zippy tang. Taste is caramel apple, nutmeg and raisin. Good for the style.

yngwie (15606) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle, 75cl corked. It’s more or less clear in the class, copper-colored and topped by a finger-thick, dense, beige head. It’s meaty and malty on the nose, with clear indications that a sweet flavor is to expect. Some dried fruits and caramel too. It’s full-bodied and sweetish on the palate, and with caramel sweetness and dried fruits in the flavor, both initially and in the end. A nice doppelbock, although it differs a bit from the German tradition, tasteful and pleasant to drink. Wouldn’t mind to have it again some day. 100611
