The flavor is toasted malt, with some nuttiness and dark fruit. There are also some underlying bitter grassy hop notes. The finish is slightly sweet and dry. There’s a lingering finish that’s not quite clean and a bit slick. The 7.4% ABV gives a bit of a warmth and is readily apparent.

tfredvik (941) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2014
Clear, medium amber body with a rather small, bubbly, off-white head that almost disappears completely, ok lacing. Strong and sweet aroma of sweet caramel, dark dried fruits and fresh fruits, especially well ripe banana. Moderate sweet taste with a long, moderate bitter resinous finish. Moderate flavour of caramel, dark dried fruits, plum, alcohol and hints of banana. Medium body, smooth texture, soft to moderate carbonation. A nice one. Maybe I’m finally beginning to appreciate English strong ales.
[35.5 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkel bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, dunkle Früchte, würzig. Geschmack nach dunklen reifen Früchten, malzig süß, leicht würzig.

javiercrasher (138) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 13, 2014
De color marrón con destellos rojizos y espuma de escasa consistencia. Aroma a malta, caramelo y especias. Cuerpo medio, un poco oleosa y sin mucho gas. En boca dulce y maltosa, con algo de nuez y especias. Aunque el alcohol está bien integrado si que es fuerte y con carácter, ideal para los días fríos

Foffern (1065) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a clear reddish amber colour with a light beige, creamy, medium head. Aroma of dried fruit, cranberries, nuts, wood, caramel, maple syrup, leather and some chocolate. A bit on the sweet side. The flavour has more nuts, fudge and still a malty touch. Sweet and light. Has a silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A little boring beer compared to other Flying Dog beers. Is balanced and sweet with a pleasant aroma, but the taste is surprisingly light.

Malty aroma, some caramel toffee, mild fruits. Flavour is medium malty sweetness, nicely balanced. Quite nice brew.

Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Klar brun farget, medium karbonert. Liten hvit skumtopp. Smaker røstet malt, karamell, gjær , korn, krydder, frukt, overmoden appelsin. En ganske god øl

Aroma-delicate, roasted apple and nuts, cinnamon Appearance-rich caramel orange, average foam, CO2 ok Taste-classic Doppelbock, roasted not smoked, could be a session beer if your head is strong :-) Palate-nice bitterness with more share of hops than alcohol, slightly better than Paulaner Salvator Overall-a good beer but not for me since I can buy Paulaner Salvator almost 8 times cheaper. 355 ml bottle, Drinks of the world Zurich.

BeerViking (2084) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Keg, dark brown, toasted malt nose, sweet with burnt caramel, a touch of marmalade, earthy hops but overwhelmed by caramel. A bit too sweet even for a winterbock.

Backlog. One of the standard winter-seasonals that show up every year, never really made an impact with me.
