goozen (2873) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2008
Bottle at PRZH Winterbierfestival, Gouda: The brown one of their winter-ales, but i think this is a pretty decen Doppelbock.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2007
Dark brown colored, cloudy appearance with little yellow head. Strongly yeasty aroma with mild chocolate and slight spices, mild alcohol also there. Basic Netherland aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is surprisingly sweet with brown sugar, yeast and spices. Aftertaste dries mildly with even too strong alcohol.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2007 (Bottled, 0.75l) Muddy dark brown, not much head (as it already burst out of the bottle). Slightly sour, sweetish and toffee-caramely aroma. Sweet, yeasty and spicy-malty flavor with some sourness and alcohol. Typically yeasty and weird De Prael brew - not among the most enjoyable.
