Bottle @ home, from De Molen. The pour’s deep amber orange with a medium white head. The aroma’s lemon, some spice, deep red fruits. Brown bread maltiness. Some exotic passionfruit. The taste is rich caramel and spice. Chewy fruit gum, some strawberry jam. Mildly toasty. Rich full body, soft carbonation. A real cold weather sipper. Overall, pretty nice stuff.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2013
0.33 L bottle as ”De Molen Dubbelbock”. Pours a clear ruby-shaded brown body with a brief ashy-blond head. Rich malt aroma, Nutty, gently roasted with dark bread tones. Full malt body. Sweet, yet clean. Caramel tones, dark bread and nuts, and a fine fruitiness reminiscent of raisis and dates. Balancing bitterness. Healthy body. Soft oily mouthfeel. Clean sweetish malty ending. A well-crafted and tasty true-to-the-type Dopplebock.

Reimer96 (1411) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Pours a murky brown color with no head. Aroma of brown sugar, dried fruits, nuts and sweet caramel malts. Taste is nutty with some caramel malt, wood and a slight bitterness on the finish. Very smooth and slick mouth feel for a 7.7 beer.

Clear brown, small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and black fruit. Taste is black fruit (blackberry), roasted malts, wood, lychees, hop bitterness, caramel malts. Very complex taste, every sip seems to have a new flavour. Makes it a very nice beer to drink.

Rune (8702) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2013
330ml bottle, as Dubbelbock, at VertsHuset Skarven in friendly company with Loz, her mother, Fin and Finn. Pours a lasting, white head over a cloudy amber coloured body. Nose is mostly malty, semi-sweet and semi-dry. Malty sweetness to the taste buds alongside moments of dried fruits. The alcohol is surprisingly present. Quite possible to drink, however rather disappointing in a De Molen context (Tromsø, 19.01.2013).

Finn (4514) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2013
Flaske 0,33l som Dubbelbock på vertshuset Skarven 16 Jan 13. Dyp brun. Litt hissig. Veldig høyt luftig skum som varer nesten evig. Danner en skumtopp i midten.Litt lacing. Bra krydderaroma. Smaken er litt fruktig. Mørke plommer. Også litt krydderpreg her. Blir syrlig etter hvert. Tørr bitter avslutning med innslag av tørket frukt.

Foffern (1343) - Bodø, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is clear amber with a frothy medium light beige head. Medium carbonation. Aromas of roasted almonds, sweet and caramel malt, nuts, oak and fudge, and a touch of dark berries. Sweet and malty flavours of leather, caramel and more oak. A rich and soft mouthfeel, and a surprisingly medium bitterness. A rich and flavourful doppelbock, but I would prefered less bitterness. Would be great with meaty dishes.

Countbeer (4897) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2013
Bottle: No head but an of white beige lacing on top of a hazy dark amber orange colored beer. Seems a bit carbo less, let’s see: The aroma’s that I can smell in this beer are as follows: prunes, barleys, ostmeal, hints of wood, raisin and liquorice wood. Taste prunes, raisin, barleys, bitters, liquor, malts, hint of oatmeal and a soft bitterness. Not much else. Aftertaste of barley malts with raisin and prune tones and some bitters. Low carbo, soft light watery mouthfeel, medium body and a texture between watery and creamy. A bit strange and unbalanced.
