Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2010
Flaske 0,5l delt med Rune 26 Mai 10. Dyp amber på farge. Skummet er svakt farget. Høyt og luftig men daler etter ei lita stund. Aromaen er maltig med litt røykpreg. Smaken blir i søteste laget. Karamell. Uvariert og litt kjedelig.

Embrouille (2803) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle 50cl. Ordered from www.bierzwerg.de. Very true to the style. Malt accented, low bitterness with pumpernickel and caramel apparent throughout. I prefer the taste over the aroma. Not really my kind of Doppelbock.

Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2010
500ml swingtop bottle bought at Bier Spezialität Laden, Berlin. Decent beige head atop of a deep mahogany body. Smell of sweet earthy malts. Roasted, mid-sweet malts, including grainy chocolate, to the taste buds. Finish with a dry, malt-fruity touch. So and so (shared with Finn, Tromsø 26.05.2010).

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2008

thewolf (10769) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle @ Plan B Cph.
Pours a deep red with a small, creamy, off-white head on top. Aroma has lots of rye bread some plums and doughiness. Low carbonation, fair mouthfeel - slightly creamy. Flavour starts off a bit metallic, lots of rye bread again and is pretty sweet. Very little chocolate, but there are plums and coconut (?). A bit of hoppiness at the far end. Not my thing.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2008 Bottled. Clear dark amber, small head. From nose to finish licorice molasses and bread dominates. It’s sweet and dense, fruity and salty with solid body and fairly soft mouthfeel. Finishes with medium bitterness.
