4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very solid winter seasonal. It’s smooth and sweet, with just the right touch of bitter and spice. It has a fruitiness that isn’t overpowering and a great mouthfeel. It’s almost too smooth and easy drinking for it’s 7.5%ABV.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Actually really enjoying this. Great session beer, with just enough roast and flavor to make it interesting. Very smooth on taste, though palate isn’t too complex. Light sweet and bitter finish. Some caramel here. Dark brown pour with great mocha head and lacing. Bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33 l bottle. Crystal clear, ruby with thick, soapy, slowly diminishing, white head. Aroma of cherries, molasses and candy sugar with a bit of alcohol in the end. Sweetish taste which is the same as the aroma. Slightly alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied, creamy, chewy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Really nice doppelbock which serves perfectly as a winter warmer. Much better than their Weihnachtsbier!

Bottle, amber orange, really nice bready malt aroma and flavor, one of the better doppels I have tried, you have to like the style to enjoy but very solid all around, bottle throws you off as a gimmick

Aroma of thick malt, caramel, toffee, raisin, nuts. Flavour is sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Nicely full bodied, but overall too sweet for my taste.

Mellanmörk med obefintligt skum. Smaken mkt maltig med ytterst lite sötma. Eftersmaken lång med bränd, lite pepprig, karamell. Tämligen mkt kolsyra för öltypen.
