1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from the bartender at Lowlander. It poured a hazy brown liquid with a big brown head. Unfortunately I believe this one was a bit to old (the brewer warned me though). Sour smell with some chocolate. A bit funky taste with smoked ham and malts. Thanks for the bottle though, I got a feeling this beer was allot better a year or so ago.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at tasting, vintage: best before april 2007. Thanks for the trade, NoiZe! Cork pops with a loud bang. Pours murky brown with a very quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma of dusty doppelbock with carbonated water. Some fruity malts and a bit of smoke and peat. Flavor is smokey, peaty, malty and with some sugar, leather, slightly bitter and licorice in the finish. Nicely aged brew with surprisingly very lively carbonation and a creamy texture.

Bottle. [thank you, skortila]
Pours red amber with a large, fizzy, off-white head. Aroma is smoky, some butterscotch, peity, and a flowery hoppiness. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour starts off with just a slight hint of strawberries, then the peity smoke takes over. Caramel all-around. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, also aged 4-5 years. Described as a strong scotch by Bram the brewer of this beer. Brown, mahony colored brew. Malty, smoky and peated aroma. Flavor is vinous, caramel, smoky, malty, some bitterness, some honey. After a while peated indeed. We got a bottle from Bram to take home. I hope he starts brewing again. Overall a nice brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Purple brown color. Earthy (IMO not smoky) aroma with nutmeg, pepper and a hint of raspberry. Earthy, dusty flavor. Spicy and hoppy. Bitter almonds aftertaste. Not without quality, but certainly not my taste.
