1000 ml bottle, thanks Timo A. Pours a dark brown colour with a white head. Aroma of bread, licorice root and grass. Quite nice aroma really. Flavour of toasted malts, bread, really strong licorice root, grassy bitterness, wood and sweetness. Some saltiness. Full bodied and a rich, malty, licorice finish. The amount of licorice is incredible. Just brilliant.

Aroma has raisins. roasteds malt and some syrupy tones. Also some licorice. Flavour has licorice root, some salty tones and cocoa. Not very doppelbock-like. But very nice, I love the licorice tones here. Reminds me of Ruosniemen Vahtimestari.

Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma is very malty and sweet with caramel and toffee, some dark fruits as well as some cocoa. Flavor of resin, syrup, distant licorice root, caramel malts, some cocoa notes and faint sugar. A bit on the sweet side but very pleasant and balanced.

Bottle shared at Hopfen & Malz. Murky brown with a large tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt. Smooth sweet flavour, almost creamy. Alcohol is well hidden, could do damage with this.
