4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2012 Low carbonation when opening the bottle. Thick and solid foam that lingers. Big smell of malt mostly caramell malt. A full bodied very well balansed doppelbock. Low bitterness and just plesant. (8,3,7,3,16)
Bottle at SBWF 2009, from 2008.
Small head with a nice amber color. The caramell aroma is plesent and it also dominates the taste. The beer has aged fina and have some port like aromas. Big body with nice rest sweetness. (8,3,8,5,16)
Bottle at private sampling Oct 2011.
No head. Meaty aroma with a tuch of malt. Semi sweet malty taste with a litle low bitterness that don’t quite balance the body and malts. Have been better.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, Stockholm, Sweden. A bungundy colored beer with a full head of good density. Looks great, but does not appear to be bottle conditioned. Sparse aromas show some malt (husk, grain, caramel) and perhaps a touch of honey fruit and herbaceous hops. Flavor is malty sweet, with some hints of caramel and toffee. An ok beer, but lacking malt depth and body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy hopscotch. POurs crystal clear mahogany, with a small white head. Smells of sweet malts, some dark fruits, and mild Belgian candy sugar. Subtle overall. The flavor is more bold, with big sweet dark fruits flowing throughout the palate. Some sweet malts left a profound bitterness in the finish. Very Belgian in its characters seemingly. Perhaps a touch too bitter, but definitely a drinkable brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear copper lager with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Vinous notes, dark fruits and roasted nuts merge to assemble the rich aroma. Full-bodied and creamy with reticent carbonation. Sweet toffee and butterscotch. Lightly chocolaty. Bittersweet, vinous finish. Kudos to Marsiblursi for floating this brew across the pond!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, vintage 2007. Pours an reddish orange-brown colour with an off white head. Candy sugar, dried fruits, caramel and golden syrup on the nose. Nice! Flavour has some fruity sweetness and notes of roasted caramel. You don’t feel the alcohol. The finish is dry with a woody bitterness. A bit too thin. The aroma was superior to the flavour.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: vinous, figs, dark sweet malts, havy... Spicy yeast, liqueur. Very nice.
Appearance: copper hue, clear. Yellowish old ale foam w/ bubbly appearance. Pretty fine.
Flavour: sweet, walnut, malty. I LOVE IT! Very nutty. Not huge but complex, vinous, reasonably dry & full-bodied aftertaste of molasses, walnuts, bitterhops & dried fruit.
Palate: fluffy, thick yet drinkable. Really marvellous. Not that much carbonation but small bubbles stinging from the rustic depth.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2008 33 cl bottle - Dark amber colored beer with a small beige head. Aroma is very nutty, actually some hazelnut feeling to it. Very strong roasted almond flavor to it, which surprisingly enough isn’t as common as it should be, specially considering how well it works with the enitre flavor.
