Pinball (11739) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2011
swingtop bottle from toft vin. clear dark brown, smooth beige head. sweet malty aroma, some hops (german), roasted malty note, caramel. flavor is roasted malts, oxidized , flowery hops, cardboard , a nice dry roasted malty ending. tastes like it is slightly oxidized, but date is good, and apart from that the beer seems fresh enough. Perhaps something else?.

Koelschtrinker (14596) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Röstmalziger und süßlicher Geruch. Leicht süßlicher Antrunk, im Mittelteil kommt ein angenehm malziges Aroma hinzu, anschließend ansprechend hopfig. Im Nachgeschmack lecker röstmalzig, leider auch etwas zu süß. Schmeckt nicht wirklich als wären es 6,8%. Ansprechend, oberes Mittelfeld. Test vom 13.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,11,13,11,12 - 11,35

Shakesbeere (219) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2011
0.5L bottle in Berlin. Pours a dark caramel brown. Smells of roasted malt and caramel. Tastes of roasted malt, caramel, and molasses with a bitter background. Finish is a balance between bitter and brown sugar. Pretty good.

Oakes (14059) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
Ruby-brown colour. Rich thick bock, treacly tones, very chocolatey and earthy. Very nice - there’s some firm alcohol on the nose, not as much as on the palate.

Grima (2228) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2011
Beautiful dark brown color, cream-like head. The smell is rather reserved. Malty sweet and subtly roasty. It starts strong malty, with a nice sweet flavor. The aftertaste is roasty and almost a little chocolatey. Reminds partly to a good Stout. Fabulous Bockbier!

Finn (5580) - 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 (2831) - 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 (10000) - 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).
