Bottled 29/09/12. A ruby coloured beer with an off-white ring of head. Sweet and bready malts throughout. Fossil fuels. More bitter and fruity than most doppelbocks. Late toastiness. Pretty tasty but a bit over fruity.

Poured into stemmed glass a clear red tinged brown with quick to disapate beige head. Aroma was malty, dark fruits with a little coca. Taste was toasted malt, nutty, a bit earthy. The malt gets straight nber on the finish and as it warms. A slight amount of bozey warmth.

Cidertron (30) - California, USA - FEB 16, 2015
After trying some of Einstok’s brews, it was quite a treat to try a decent holiday brew for Christmas. It runs amber with some tastes of fruits and caramel :) It’s a bit more fizzy than their other brews running more towards the bitter side :)

Bottle@ahven. Dark amber red brownish coliur, clear. Malty nice. Slight sweet, dry ripe dark fruits, some fresh leather. Med bodied, a bit of sweet malty roundness, but not enough to be oily. Malty, dark syrupy bread, some eathyness. Clean, bit sterile though.

Marstonlad (503) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle @ Black Door, Helsinki. A color of dark reddish brown with a big and well lasting head. The aroma features nuts, toffee and caramel with some raisin; contains features typical in this style. Taste is light sweet and malt-driven, featuring caramel and hazelnut initially and drier toasty and bready malty notes in the finish. The palate is medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation and a velvety texture. Lots of quality in this Icelandic take on a traditional German style.
