Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 18, 2010
Bottled 50cl. Bottle from Bierzwerg.de. Clear dark amber with a small beige head. Terribly inviting nose where odd cardamom and lemongrass, caramel, candied coconut, apricot and spicy hop components show up, all very nicely balanced by a flawless malt back. Low carbonation. Great balance. Very drinkable with a good bitterness. Beautiful lacework. Dry finish. A sublime beer.

FatPhil (11500) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2008
500ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Oktoberfest 2008)
Rich orange, no head. Not much aroma; sweet malts I guess. Quite an alcoholic kick, but a big malty body. A touch of mustard. Overall, not too boozy, but definitely strong. Pretty estery - I would say this falls easily into the European Strong Lager category, rather than Doppelbock. Finish is quite hoppy.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2008
A clear dark amber colored beer, with a small beige head. The aroma of caramel, fruits and alcohol. The taste is caramel sweet, with fruits and some bitter. The aftertaste is alcohol warm with a bitter flavor, which gets stronger.
