3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this in Duvel glass from 33cl bottle. Heavy malty nose with lots of roasted bread, milk chocolate and some coffe. In the second wave there was a overall feel of Surdough, hints of honey, cherry, raisin and grape. Medium body, a bit watery and a little oily texture. A good doppelbock that still is improving. Nice. Cheers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroam of licorice, light corn from dms, vanilla, smoke, earthy, fake cherry cough drops. Taste is earthy with a lignering caramel sweetness and licorice notes. A bit boozy. Pointless.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Brown clear with a red hue. Strange aroma. Smells really corked, old murky woody. Some metallic notes, hints of brown bready malty sweetness. Med bodied, surprisingly easy for this abv. Smooth, nice texture, but again, that strange corked flavour. Im half expecting to get small pieces of a disintegrated cork when drinking. Its either a bad bottle or then this just ages horribly (the bottles a couple years old). Real easy for the abv, but too bad about the flavour.

Mørk rødbrun klar med fingerhøyt lys brunt skum. Lukter kandissukker, sjokolade og brent karamell. Smaker tydelig brent karamell og mot salmiakklakris. Medium fylde og lengde.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is dominated by rye bread and dark syrup, there is some spicyness in the background as well. Taste is malty, bready a bit sweet but the sweetness is well balanced with the bitterness. The bitterness it self is soft and just act in the background to make the beer balanced. Nice double bock and very well balanced.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flaska från systembolaget. Torkade frukter och lite metallisk doft. Ganska tunn kropp, smak av bröd, svaga toner av torkad frukt. Lite för tunn för min smak.

SB Lund, flaska. Baksirapsliknande som sig bör. Metal rostad känsla. En impstout utan humle.

Fine deep amber color with a thick tan head. Ok lacing. Caramel, fruity, plums and mild spiced aroma. Medium + body. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Soft carbonation and a bit oily. Lots of caramel, bready, fruity, plums and mild spiced flavor. Nice one.
