Rolfarild (147) - NORWAY - JUL 11, 2015

Idiosynkrasie (4922) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 24, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear chestnut colour with late awakening, average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Earthy, nuttily, dark malty aroma with a touch of treacle and liquorice. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, notes of treacle, a nuttily touch, some liquorice, dry hoppy overtones with cardboard touch; chewy mouthfeel. Slightly cautious, if not anaemic for a DOPPELbock.

yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle. A clear, dark amber colored beer topped by a dense, finger-thick beige head. Weak malty aroma with caramel and a generic dried fruit touch. Some baked apples in the far back. It’s full-bodied, soft and rather dry on the palate, with flavors of caramel and dried fruits. Decent bitterness too, handling the sweetness well. Lasting finish. A boring, clean doppelbock lacking on complexity. 150725

Dark nutty brown appearance with no head. Tastes of roasted malt and metallic caramel. Quite fizzy and has a good long aftertaste
